I started doing storytelling performances last year (its awesome fun), not very practiced at it yet but I tell a mean saga.
Fiction wise I like a good story so Stienbeck, Cormac McCarthy, I grew up with the works of the late, great Terry Pratchett so those are a favourite too. Currently expanding my literary tastes so any recommendations are welcome.
Music: Things with guitar in for the most part. At the moment country music, the music of pain (and moonshine and crazyness and don't-give-a-damn-about-anything exuberance). Ranging from Jonny Cash to more modern stuff like the Steeldrivers and the Civil Wars.
Relatedly folk and bluegrass such as Crooked Still and Sarah Jarosz. Fact; any music is improved with the addition of banjos and fiddles (for proof see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezRhtnWWUUc ).
Also various bits of rock music from Kansas to the Black Keys
Filmed entertainment: Too numerous to mention everything but right now, Archer, House of Cards, the Wire, the Coen Brothers' remake of True Grit, anything by Ken Burns.
Food: Tea, Bacon.
