Radio - I love Radiolab, KEXP's podcasts, and NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

Comedians - Mike Birbiglia, Kristen Wiig, Louis C.K., Andy Kaufman, Groucho, Aziz Ansari, Woody Allen, Gary Gulman, Jackie Mason, Bill Hicks, David Cross. Also, Mel Brooks' 2000 Year-Old Man routine is brilliant.
Movies - Anything by Stanley Kubrick or the Coen Brothers. I'm generally a big fan of 70s movies (Chinatown, Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon), but am always looking for new suggestions.
Food - I like just about everything. Oh, and after years spent avoiding, I am really into eggplant these days. Like, for serious.
