Movies is too big a topic to really dig into here so I'll just say favorite directors include the Coen brothers, Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, Joss Whedon, and Jeanne-Pierre Jeunet.
For reading I prefer all sorts of genre stuff (but hopefully with a brain.) I particularly enjoy Phillip K Dick and Terry Pratchett.
Musical taste runs towards critics' darlings of all genres. All time favorites include Nick Cave, The Clash, and The Cure. (And I love dancing to cheeseball 80s music.)
Working with my hands.
Movie night get togethers.
