For movies I also tend to lean towards classic (film noir especially). Some of my favourites are: Touch of Evil, The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, The Mirror (Tarkovsky), The Return, Blast of Silence, Without a Clue, and The Big Sleep.
I'm an absolute music junkie and love a wide variety of bands, such as Elliott Smith, Opeth, Sonic Youth, Radiohead, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Nick Drake, Stars of the Lid, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Tim Hecker, Porcupine Tree, NIN, Pink Floyd, Gravenhurst, Nirvana, Heatmiser, Sparklehorse, and Matt Elliott.
I love food from different cultures, especially Thai, Indian, and Mexican (the spicier, the better).
-Friends and family
But more specifically (a few things)...
-The impact our modern lifestyle is having on the planet and ways to personally be more responsible/less wasteful.
-Finding the balance between minimalism and materialism (I dream of a more spartan lifestyle, ha).
-Why I'm so fascinated by the past (way way before me past, not my past).
