Music: I don't know where to start with this. I really listen to every genre; it just depends what mood I'm in...I mainly like Jazz when I'm relaxing at home, Classical when I need to think, Soul and Sinatra when I'm entertaining, anything goes when I'm driving (usually Rock though), and I really like listening to and appreciating Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Radiohead, and countless other artists that are worth listening to.....I listen to a lot of music.
Food: Really, how does food fit into this question? I'll try almost anything once. The taco truck near my house is the best place on Earth.
