Music, Movies, and Books

I tend to go for movies that are uplifting, music that is depressing, and books that are clever. But generally whatever I'm watching/listening to/reading at the moment is my favorite and I'm entirely capable of playing a new album on repeat for weeks on end or doing absolutely nothing until I finish that book.
