I don't watch a heck of a lot of TV, but I have watched a depressing amount of the Simpsons and Law and Order, and I'm addicted to the British series Skins because it is awesome (and I'm not just saying that cuz Luke Pasqualino is hot honest!)
Bookwise I'm a sucker for Margaret Atwood and Kurt Vonnegut, and I also like George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series because I haven't quite managed to bash my inner D&D nerd into submission at this point in time.
My favorite bands are The Arcade Fire, U2, Fear of Tigers, and Fleet Foxes, and I'm also partial to Green Day, Sigur Ros, MGMT when they're not doing their level best to OD and be proud of it for some reason, Anoraak, and Radiohead. I'm also keen on Neil Young since my parents used to play his stuff on long car rides, which made for a welcome interlude between the Rankin Family and Garth Brooks *shudder*. This isn't to say that they both had questionable taste in music, but my mom's love of new country was a fearsome force for evil in this world.
Most food is only worth eating if it's spicy in my view. I love Chinese, Indian, and Carribean for that reason, and take pains to be haughty about the crap that's available out in the suburbs since once you've gone Kom Jug you'll never go back. I also like Japanese and Korean and -- let's just say I like to eat kay?
2. The internets

5. Politics and beer, not necessarily in that order.
