are you excited?

I'm not sure how to feel about the fact that I've only read three of the 15 geek novels to read before you die, according to TechBlog.

There are people who still believe the earth is flat. Seriously.

In need of some new tunes? How about 50+? Try the first five Fluxcasts on for size.

To celebrate The Dark Knight's record-breaking $400million in just 18 days of release, take a look at Wikipedia's List of highest grossing films, meticulously organized.

Which 3 books?

I've read (of course) The Catcher in the Rye, as well as the Lord of the Rings stuff, Stranger in a Strange Land, and all 5 (not 4, as the writer says), Hitchhiker's Guide books. I can also admit to having read one more Douglas Adams book. But hey, my dad is apparently a HUGE geek, since he has entire shelves filled with Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov (PS, I think I read a comic book version of I, Robot when I was a kid), and Arthur C. Clarke. So it could be worse.
