Just because I like to share, here’s some things that I enjoyed in 2008. This isn’t necessarily a ‘best of’ or a ‘must have’ or even a set of recommendations… it’s just a stream-of-consciousness dump of things that I, personally, enjoyed. Feel free to add your own list in the comments!
The RadioLab podcast, which never fails to teach me something new and fascinating.
Cudas Amigo Flipflops. You do realize that I am a world-class authority on what makes a good flipflop, yes?
Bob’s Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal (just sprinkle it on your morning breakfast cereal – makes it even better. And it’s like healthy, too).
The Taj Mahal
Trader Joe’s grocery stores.
Panasonic DMC-LX3 I’ve only had this for a few weeks now but I’m really liking it. Decent low-light capabilities for a point-and-shoot, a true wide-angle lens, and it’ll shoot HD video as well.
Neil Stephenson’s Anathem.
The Wire. (Which I only got around to discovering this year, and then spent a month watching all 5 seasons on DVD, completely addicted). One of the best television shows ever? Yup, probably. Definitely.
Versailles Cuban Restaurant (Los Angeles area). Roasted Garlic 1/2 Chicken with a side of plantains. OMFGDrool.
