Do yourself a favor and take 4 and a half minutes to listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QpXlcGNVz0.
TV Shows: Buffy/Angel. Anything Bryan Fuller - Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me, Hannibal - I am waiting with baited breath for the American Gods series. Post-election I've been calming myself by watching British comedy panel shows on Youtube (8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown is great). There are some awesome Netflix comedies lately - Lady Dynamite, Bojack Horseman, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I'm also really into Jane the Virgin.
Music: Chris Thile, Mountain Goats, Violent Femmes, Elvis Costello, Nick Drake, St. Vincent, the Magnetic Fields, the Kinks, Mozart, Andrew Bird, Laura Marling Jimi Hendrix, Manu Chao, the Velvet Underground, Neil Young, Johnny Flynn, Nirvana, Villagers, tenThing (Norwegian all-female 10 piece brass ensemble), the Talking Heads, Patrick Watson, Roomful of Teeth, Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith, Jack White. So sort of folk-y, with a mix of other good things.
Bonus points if you get what my username is referencing.
