the ultimate top 10 list (or, how to be a total dork)

oh, there's nothing to do here, again.

...was thinking about putting together an ultimate top-10 list; a list that combined favorite albums, books, concerts, videogames, songs, etc. into one mega top-10 favorite media experiences of all time.

Here's what I would consider including:

from the concert list

1. Tortoise @ Irving Plaza (fall 98, i think)
2. Phish @ MSG, 12/31/98 (2nd set)
3. Radiohead @ Hammerstien Ballroom (i forget which one)
4. Hum @ Irving Plaza (DiH tour)

from the book list

1. Infinite Jest, DFW
2. Mason & Dixon, Pynchon
3. Trout Fishing in America, Brautigan
4. Still Life w/ Woodpecker, Robbins
(i'm not quite ready to include Tolkien in here just yet.)

from the movie list

1. Brazil
2. 2001
3. Memento

from the videogame list

1. Oddworld
2. Half-Life
3. Rayman 2
4. Skies of Arcadia

from the album list

There is no way I can make this particular list right now; there's just no way. This list changes every few months or so, anyway. Figure "OK Computer" will be on there, as well as at least one The Sea And Cake, Tortoise, The Beatles "Revolver" and "Abbey Road", etc.

    1. Recovering from a monsterously busy morning; currently streaming the new Paul Simon album (produced by Brian Eno) and trying to catch my breath.…

    1. I was home yesterday because our DVR machine exploded. Time Warner Cable was scheduled to arrive between 12-4. Of course, they arrived at 5:15, so…
