Favorite recent(ish) movies: Margaret. (pretty much a masterpiece imho.) Stories We Tell. The Skin I Live In, Tree of Life, Our Idiot Brother, Please Give, An Education, The Celebration, Happy Go Lucky, The Lives of Others. I also seem to be the only person in America that didn't love Lincoln (thought it was a little boring.)
Music: Stereolab, My bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, Dirty Projectors, Deerhoof, New pornographers, shins, Built to Spill, Pavement, Giant Sand, good old country like Willie, Merle...Sleater Kinney, De La Soul and will fess up to Fiona Apple. Also really like the last Frank Ocean album.
TV: Game of Thrones, Togetherness, Top of the Lake was fantastic. Justified, Mad Men, Enlightened, Louie, and BBC shows (have you seen Garth Marenghi's Darkplace on BBC? Very funny. Earnest narrator: "This place was dark. Damn dark. Hence, Darkplace."
