Anything by Vince Flynn - R.I.P. My favorite is American Assassin

Give me your serious, your funny, your stupid and everything in between. The stupid stuff has to be witty, none of the Scary movie parody crap, or gratuitous nudity. Example of stupid but witty (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
Music
Everything but country music, pop and 80's glam rock (that means you poison). Prefer heavier tunes like Stone Sour or more melodic stuff like Tantric or Days of the New.
