Some music: Mainly an indie boy, but I do love me some alt-country. Wild Beasts, Frightened Rabbit, Grizzly Bear, Sufjan Stevens, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Wooden Sky, Neil Young, Kathleen Edwards. Also well into old-school rap, post-punk, soul, Two-Tone Ska, IDM (Fennesz, Alva Noto, Vladislav Delay, etc.)
I'm quite a fan of independent comic books, especially what the French call BD Reportage (comic-book journalism): Joe Sacco, Adrian Tomine, Marjane Satrapi, Manu Larcenet, Hugo Pratt.
I also like a good bit of alternative comedy (e.g., Stewart Lee, Tony Law, Robin Ince).
