Favorite TV show - The Larry Sanders Show

The Larry Sanders Show is an Emmy Award- and Peabody Award-winning satirical television sitcom that originally aired from August 1992 to May 1998 on the HBO cable television network in the United States. It starred stand-up comedian Garry Shandling as vain, neurotic talk show host Larry Sanders, and centered around the running of his TV show, and the many people behind the scenes. It is notable for featuring celebrities as themselves (often parodying themselves) and its character-based humour, which is similar to other popular shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Extras.

Favorite Music - Herb Alpert

One of the most successful instrumental performers in pop history, trumpeter Herb Alpert was also one of the entertainment industry's shrewdest businessmen: A&M, the label he co-founded with partner Jerry Moss, ranks among the most prosperous artist-owned companies ever established. Born March 31, 1935, in Los Angeles, Alpert began playing the trumpet at the age of eight. After serving in the Army, he attempted to forge an acting career, but soon returned to music, recording under the name Dore Alpert for RCA.

Favorite Music - Miles Davis

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean.

Favorite Hero - Cornell West

Cornel Ronald West (born June 2, 1953 in Tulsa, Oklahoma) is an American scholar and public intellectual. Formerly at Harvard University, West is currently a professor of Religion at Princeton. West says his intellectual contributions draw from such diverse traditions as the African American Baptist Church, Marxism, pragmatism, and transcendentalism.

Favorite Hero - Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne is the fictional hero of Robert Ludlum's 1980 book The Bourne Identity. Bourne begins the book as an amnesiac with no knowledge of his identity; he slowly discovers that he was a top-secret killer trained by the American government, which now would like him dead. The novel was a bestseller and spawned two sequels by Ludlum, The Bourne Supremacy (1986) and The Bourne Ultimatum (1990). Two more books in the series, The Bourne Legacy (2004) and The Bourne Betrayal (2007), were written by Eric Van Lustbader after Ludlum's death in 2001.
