My favorite classics are probably On the Road, Catcher in the Rye, 1984, The Stranger, The Great Gatsby, As I Lay Dying, Steppenwolf, Ray Bradbury's books and Kurt Vonnegut's books.
I read news articles online (especially science stuff) and some magazine articles. I love having the internet in my pocket. I'm a sucker for information, trivial or otherwise. I also listen to NPR quite a bit.
I love music. Rock, indie, jazz, classical and others. I'm still on a crazy year long Pink Floyd kick right now, but I am hoping to pick up the new Jack White album soon. U2, Built to Spill, Neil Young and the Samples are my all-time favorites. I also like The Flaming Lips, Iron & Wine, some Weezer, Blind Melon and the like. I really like Coltrane, Miles Davis, Oscar Petersen and all great jazz.
I like some TV like Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Dexter, Arrested Development, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story.
For movies, I tend to agree with the critics more than the viewers. That's just how I am. Some of my favorites are Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, Aliens, The Departed, Anchorman, Super Troopers, Forrest Gump, Big, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, The Gladiator, The Hurricane, The Shining, Blues Brothers, The Jerk, and A Perfect World.
Something to read (usually on my phone)
Sense of humor
A little tme to relax
I have only had one serious romantic relationship in my life. That lasted 13+ years. I'm doing a lot of soul searching to understand how my behavior affected the outcome of that relationship. I'm committed to learning from the experience and being the best friend and/or partner I can be. I'm not in any hurry to jump into a really serious relationship, but I'm hoping to find somebody to love again SOME DAY.
