Monty Python. Need I say more?
For music, I recommend anything with strange or new sounds (electric is always interesting) and lyrics hard to decipher. And animated music videos. One band with this is the Gorrilaz. Especially their newer songs.
Tell me what you guys think about that group.
Here is a song that was made by them but remixed by another group (the remix is more widely known than the original). It is good for listening to in a happy mood.
