Music would be way too many characters. I love some of all genres. Mostly hip hop/rap, soul, singer/songwriter, and rock/metal. Some mindless stuff for fun here and there but I relate to music and lyrics that SAY something. I'm a poetic, question everything, free thinker type.
Movies are the same, I appreciate so many.. again the kind that are directed in a way that is art. Natural Born Killers has always been a favorite. , pretty much everything Robert De Niro has been in; Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, This Boy's Life, Goodfellas, The Fan, etc. Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, Saving Private Ryan, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Anchorman, Raising Arizona, Stand By Me, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, Grandma's Boy, Requim for a Dream, Reservoir Dogs, let me just stop before i get tons of "you left out this" messages.
As far as TV shows... same.. I feel like once one has completed Game of Thrones, other shows are less important, although still great.
One of my favorite books is The Art of Racing in the Rain. And there.. look at all that bait you can use to converse with me about. :)
you are already a grown man, rather than "in the process"
You want to actually converse.
