Uh, I'm Rick. I hang around the boards a lot but only try to post if I have something that's worth saying. That's just about it I guess.
In no particular order:
Anberlin - Cities,
Brand New - Deja Entendu,
Jimmy Eat World - Futures,
DCFC - Plans,
Copeland - Eat Sleep Repeat
... honestly there are so many more, but that's just of the few that I have been listening to the most lately.
Jimmy Eat World - Kill is a particular favorite at the moment.
Anberlin, Copeland, Brand New, Thrice, The Beatles, Death Cab For Cutie, Foo Fighters, Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, Jimmy Eat World, New Found Glory, Something Corporate
Harry Potter series, Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code, Deception Point, The Hobbit (Never read LOTR, the movies made it too hard to read), Slaughter House Five, The Lovely Bones ... and some more that I just can't think of right now.
Batman Begins ... it made me put my faith back in the Batman franchise.
There are way too many movies to list.
