You can't go back, and you can't go forward ("not able to go in a direction"). What about being right where you are?

That is a very good topic.
I feel like I'm committing a crime against my spiritual practice every time I watch those serial killer movies or those ego-enriching shows like Fear Factor (oh I love this last one so much, watching people eat bugs, spiders, cockroaches, etc.., full of fear just to win 50 thousand dollars :P ).

About musics, well...if you like them and they make you feel good and/or more present, then listen to them. They are supposed to make you feel good, take your thoughts away for a ride...
You don't have to change tastes just because you are spiritual now :P

check out other types of music if you feel bad about listening to "dark songs", I used to like them too until I discovered Chillstep, I find myself so grounded to the present when i hear it, here's an example:
