Good thread! Can't wait to read all of the answers and answer myself. I'll have time off tomorrow and will dive into this. I regret that my answers will probably seem quite boring compared to some of yours, but as Popeye says, "I yam what I yam!" Laughing

Hey, thanks for the tip! I will definitely check that out. And by the way, Tom Waits was definitely a candidate for my list. Fantastic stuff.

Only the authors are easy picks for me. Bands? I grew up on hard rock so I'll list three favorites from that genre, but I seldom listen to anything but jazz or solo piano pieces on Pandora anymore (sign I'm getting old I guess).

Metallica
Black Sabbath
Led Zeppelin

Authors:

Albert Camus
John Steinbeck
John Geirach

Movies, that's tough, as I don't watch many. But three of my favs over the last couple of years are:

Lord of the Rings trilogy (cheating, that's 3, I know).
A Good Year
Iron Man

Not a lot of folks are familiar with McMurtry. Even less so with The Hellecasters. Good to see you are rev.

Music
Joy Division
They Might Be Giants
Elvis Costello

Authors
J.G. Ballard
Mark Kurlansky (if we're allowing nonfiction)
Robert Frost

Movies
My Man Godfrey (the American version)
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Wet Hot American Summer

Of those categories, it feels like cinema is the one where there's the biggest disconnect between what I admire and what I really like. Probably says something interesting about how media work now.
