Or anything favorite? Some guys asked me, while bar hopping looking for live music, what's my favorite music? I didn't know what to say. They looked at me as if I'm some kind of super dorky dork who knows nothing and doesn't appreciate anything about music. I like a lot of songs and musics, from classic to hip hop. But I simply can not pinpoint exactly which genre I like the most. I usually only get to like a song after listening to it and I'm very picky on what kind of song I like. As a result, I've not always been the biggest fan of the whole live music scene cuz when it comes to music, I have very low tolerance for mediocracy, some of the bands might indeed have talent, and I'm sure some of the great songs were first sung in a bar. But all of the songs I heard in a bar are mediocre at best, and I'm not willing to waste my time on it. Anyway, thinking about my lack of interests in any specific genre or artist, I did some further analysis of myself, and I found out that I don't have specific genre of movie, TV show, beer, and lots of other stuffs I can point at and call it my favorite. Do you have any favorite genre or artist that you are willing to spend money on before you even know if you are gonna like it?

Heavy metal, thrash, blues, jazz, some classical. No piano.
Sci-fi, documentaries, I'll even do attempts at history so I can annihilate them, mystery.

I have a very large library of horror movies in my home both American and Italian, both mainstream and independent that span several decades. I love to debate with other fellow hardcore horror movie fans on sites like Imdb.com for example. I am a real nerd when it comes to horror movie trivia.

I can definitely pinpoint my favorite music genres. It tends to be just about any genre of rock but I can break that down much further if someone asks. As for movies I'm not as passionate about them, but my favorites are action, comedies, action/comedies, science fiction, spoofs, and some of those independent films. I really can't stand horror movies, chick flicks, or romance films.

Just tell them you like all styles/genres! You're worldly!
