I like old school rap, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and The Roots. While music is important, my loves and hates are all over the map. And not in a conceited way, I just can't make up my mind.
I enjoy most types of fiction as long as its well written. My fav's would be 'Jesus' Sun', 'The Things They Carried' and 'The Sun Also Rises'. I was lucky enough to be mentored by a writer named Jeff Talarigo, and thankfully his writing is good enough that I can say whatever he writes I'll read. Also, I went to school with two writers, Amye Archer and William Prystauk. They might not be greats yet, but their names are unique enough that eventually they'll be known (and are currently googleble (is that something can be done)).
I've recently come across a site called longform.com which is a great aggregate site of long non-fiction pieces. I just read a profile on Dan Savage and his view of monogamy, and while I don't subscribe to it wholeheartedly, I have to say it was interesting.
Also, I'm a sucker for a good graphic novel or collected set of comic books. Batman is my favorite, not because of the movies, which are great, but because 'The Long Halloween' and 'Dark Rising' are some of the best mystery writing I've been privileged to read.
I drive a lot for work, so a good podcast is a must. I enjoy the playful pretension contained in all slate.com podcasts. Above all, including my strange love of Pink Floyd, the PRI produced This American Life is a reason in and of itself to wake up in the morning.
