Excellent Stuff

Two of my favorite things, i.e. xkcd and subway art came together in the following comic:

Current Mainstream Entertainment List
  • Archer
  • Upcoming Hollywood Movies
  • CSI - I like the D.B. Russell character and the character played by Elizabeth Shue (sp?)
  • The Amazing Race - good background TV watching
  • Criminal Minds - I'm not crazy about the show but the blonde computer expert makes it watchable.  Plus, CBS seems to have the formula down for putting together entertaining television.
  • Daily Show / Colbert Report - funny and informative
  • Tosh.O
  • American Ninja Warrior and the original Ninja Warrior
  • Conan
  • Jeopardy
  • I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of things...
Older Mainstream Entertainment, Which I Still Enjoy
  • The Killing - while it did turn into a soap opera and I blame the detectives for not knowing anything about Seattle since the logo of a local indian casino appeared in Rosie's belongings and they didn't recognize it, the show really did have some excellent qualities.  I'll never forget the male detective asking the two high school girls about "the cage" as long as I live.
  • Harper's Island - still influences me for some reason
  • The Dark Knight - Ledger was so good as the Joker 
  • Classic Literature - I could go on forever but Candide is the book that comes to mind right now as just one example of a book I believe everyone should read at least once.
Current Below the Radar Entertainment List
  • This Isn't Happiness - great site
  • Indie / free video games - I think video games are basically a waste of time but lots of other things are wastes of time and I still do them.
  • VICE - the site that is getting it's own tv show
Current Education List

  • The Great Courses on Calculus
  • TED - Great materials
  • Learning Spanish Materials - I try to spend one hour a day learning more about Espanol.
Hunt for Lists of / Materials On the Following Topics

  • Gardening
  • Birds of the SW
  • Cooking
  • Exercise
  • Men's style


  1. Good roundup- Conan and Tosh are my main squeezes when I need a laugh.

  2. As a guy who has been watching Archer since the first season I can definitely endore that show, I love it.

  3. On the mainstream entertainment list, did you mean Conan O'brien or Conan the Barbarian? Well, whatever, they are both talented in their own ways.
