Movies: down by law, dead man, the road warrior, taxi driver, big trouble in little China, the gate (80s horror movie), the never ending story, gremlins, red dawn, most of the bad action movies from the late 80s early 90s.
Authors: Robert Charles Wilson, Patrick Rothfuss, Peter F Hamilton, Joe Haldeman, mostly nerdy sci-fi books...oh yeah, Philip k. Dick...duh.
Here's a Patrick Rothfuss quote I really like.
"Call a jack a jack, call a spade a spade but always call a whore a lady. Their lives are hard enough, and it never hurts to be polite."
Millions of dollars
I'll turn and run away
There's a hole in my sock and at night british heroin junky gnomes climb out and have long metaphysical conversations with my dog, Leroy.
and nobody laughs at my jokes.
I'll come runnin' yeah...if you want me to...
