Music: I'll listen to just about anything so long as it doesn't have a vocalist that's screaming and roaring so loud that you can't understand them. That's not to say I HATE that sort of thing, I just don't like being unable to hear lyrics. Lol I'm not a huge country fan, but I can definitely understand why some people are, and I don't really mind listening to it. I like hip-hop, alternative, blues, classical, chant, blue grass.... ad nauseum.
Movies: I LOVE movies. In my opinion, they're just like books, except when they're well made they can be even MORE captivating! : ) That being said, there are precious few that are actually able to captivate more than a superbly written book. Anywhosit, I like pretty much all genres, with my top favorites being Horror and Comedy by far. But I'll literally watch just about anything at least once!! All time favorite movie (as hard as it is to pick just one) is "Goodwill Hunting". I'd explain why it's my favorite, but if you've seen it then surely (hopefully!) you can understand why it would at least be in the list of Top 10 Favorites, even if not necessarily in the #1 spot =] lol
[Sure these aren't the typical types of "things" people can't live without, but I took it more as "Top 6 Things That Make Your Life Worth Living" ;-) ]
