That I laugh a lot.
Alvin Ailey, the Beatles, Nickelback, Hair!, Car 54 Where Are You?, Up!, ET, Scandal, Dancing with the Stars, Monk, Doc Martin, Stevie Wonder, Walden, Gandhi (the philosophy), The New York Times, The Catholic Worker (Dorothy Day), the Autobiography of Malcome X and anything with lemon in it. How's that for range?!
For movies, anything with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracey, Sidney Poitier (especially Lillies of the Field), Sandra Bullock, Dustin Hoffman, and many others. The Lord of the Rings (the book, and the amazing adaptation for the movie) and the Hobbit (book and upcoming movie).
(I'm speaking to you, OK Cupid!)
Oh, I'm glad you asked. My philosophy of life is "first, do no harm" - that means, at a minimum, to try not to kill anybody and don't buy firearms for alleged self-defense (you're twice as likely to die a violent death if you own a handgun). Practice nonviolence and the golden rule. Don't denigrate people who are less fortunate that you. Don't join extremist groups that would harm the poor.
