So getting ready to start a new group into the world and its been awhile since ive hosted and it got me thinking what do others watch, listen or read to get into the flavor of SR?

What are some of your staples to watch and read, or music you write adventures too?
SORRY FOR THE CAPS, IM USUALLY AT WORK WHILE ON THESE FORUMS AND IN MY SYSTEM IT REQUIRES CAPS SO IM NOT SHOUTING AT YOU, IM JUST NO USING MY INDOOR VOICE.

My personal favorites:

Watch: Dredd with Karl Urban - if you have seen it you know why, if not... what are you waiting for? Go watch it!

Read: Takeshi Kovac

Music: Combichrist - Get Your Body Beat

Spooky, what do you do this pass? Shoot him with my thunderstruck gauss rifle. (Rolls)  8 hits. Does that blow his head off?

The TV series Leverage is basically Shadowrun with a close-to-real-life setting.  You can even look at the people involved and say "hacker, face, street sam, infiltrator..."

For music I actually listen to a lot of trip hop and other urban-sounding music.  Beyond just being what I like, of course.  Artists like Beats Antique, Gramatik, occasionally Massive Attack, and a variety of instrumental versions of rap songs.

Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.
