In my spare time I write and run a website for Maryland's only music magazine still in print, Shockwave Magazine. Thanks to them I go to about 100 concerts a year, literally! About 70% local bands with maybe 30% nationals thrown in, you could say music makes up a big part of my life and in a big way it has made me who I am.
Favorite Books, anything by Brian Greene (The Beautiful and Elegant Universe), Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, Lord of the Rings (Yeah, I actually read the books) books on history and music. I'll read pretty much anything.
As for movies, I kind of like everything that is well written and that gets me thinking.
Music is a tough one, and I can say at this point I pretty much like it all. Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Soul, Funk, Jam... I even like a little Hip Hop (Good Hip Hop) and even a tiny bit of Blue Grass and country. Genre wise I listen to most things, but I am very passionate about specific groups. Frank Zappa, Devin Townsend, Alter Bridge, Metallica, 10 Years, NoFx, Tech N9ne, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Howlin Wolf, B.B. King, Wu Tang, Lauryn Hill, Anthony Hamilton, Martin Sexton, Kings X.... it's a pretty big list of stuff really, I could talk about music all night.
But I don't think that's the point of this, so I am just going to leave this blurb here to explain why I didn't answer the question.
