Movies: comedy and action mostly. Some good ones off the top of my head are Clerks, The Dark Knight, Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog, and Gran Torino, but my movie tastes are more defined by what I don't like, which is basically most movies that are described as "Inspirational". Also, I love good standup. Mitch Hedberg, Eddie Izzard, Louis CK, Tim Minchin, and Steve Hughes are my current favorites.
Shows: HIMYM, Sherlock, Community, Brooklyn 9-9, Doctor Who, Chuck, Babylon 5, Farscape, Burn Notice, Bones, Game of Thrones, Buffy, Firefly, and every other Joss Whedon TV show.
Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 1984, Brave New World, Watchmen, His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass Trilogy), The Abhorson Trilogy, Ender's Game, Dune, most Heinlein
Food: Food. all of it. (minus horseradish/wasabi)
If you think chatting over drink or a meal is a way better way to get to know someone than yelling at them over club music.
If you think that blues dancing is sexier than grinding.
And especially if you think it's a shame that people don't smile at each other on the streets and subways of NYC.
