"I'm sorry you're discouraged.  It might be possible to tell us what the issue was without whining.   As for me, it's hard in the absence of information to know what's up, and it's not clear to me that general talk…"

Books
Great books I've read and recommend reading:
The Bible, The Dream Giver, The Resolution for Men, The Greatest Miracle in the World, How to Win Friends and Influence People, the list could continue...

Books I plan to read this year:
The Great Gatsby and Wild at Heart

I'd love more suggestions on books that are good for the manly soul.
Movies
Although I studied Media Arts and Science, shot home videos as a young boy, and recreationally shoot wedding videography, the list of great movies I've watched is very short (and almost embarrassing). Instead of listing that short list, here is what I WILL finally watch this year:
Shawshank Redemption,
Goodfellas,
The Godfather,
Office Space
Music
My music taste ranges very widely from Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, and Michael Bublé, to Christian Rap -- LeCrae and Andy Mineo.

I choose music to fit my day. If I'm going fishing with my son, I'll listen to country. If I'm relaxing and drinking a glass of wine with my wife, I'll put on something classical. If I'm about to work or workout, that's when I put on Christian Rap--the bass gets me motivated without listening to the garbage that's on the radio.
