Movies: Waking Life, Pulp Fiction, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Gattaca, Hero, Spirited Away, Serenity, Mirrormask, Pan's Labyrinth, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, Winter's Bone, and Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Shows: Sweeney Todd, Noises Off, Into the Woods, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and The Phantom of the Opera. And I sometimes play catch up with Elementary and Agents of Shield. (Also loved Firefly, the new Battlestar Galactica, and Torchwood.)
Music: Silversun Pickups, Earl Greyhound, Garbage, Tool, Warren Zevon, Bôa, Jasmine Rodgers, Electric Six, Cake, Peter Frampton, Muse, A Perfect Circle, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Lacuna Coil, The Radiators, Joe Walsh, The Grateful Dead, X-Japan, and Glay.
Food: Cajun and Indian are my favorites. Italian is good too, and if it involves braised meat or sauteed onions, it's probably a good bet.
Ok, something actually private-- there are four places I've found where I can be happy just by being there. One was the stage. Two is Marlborough Street in Boston, between Mass Ave and the overpass. Three is Park Güell in Barcelona. And four is the Magic Gardens on South Street. I go as often as I can.
