Wired Magazine has been my favorite magazine for some time. They are always cutting edge with a wide view of how technology affects our lives. Not just a computer rag, Wired includes articles on culture, music, gadgets, people, business and on and on. They also include great reviews of books, games, movies and music. Here are some of their latest picks:

  • Watson and DNA: Making a Scientific Revolution
  • A Shortcut Through Time: The Path to a Quantum Computer
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
  • Dark Cloud 2
    More GameCube Titles / PlayStation2
  • Long Knives Drawn by Rainer Maria
  • Fast Asleep by Funki Porcini
  • Gigantor - Boxed Set 1 / Gigantor - Boxed Set 2
  • Signs

    GQ Magazine says we all should have bought these in 2002; I agree with most of them:

  • Tropical Truth: A Story of Music and Revolution in Brazil
  • Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy
  • The Pursuit of Oblivion: A Global History of Narcotics
  • The Wasties
  • Everything Is Illuminated
  • After the Quake
  • The Whore's Child
  • Dear Mr. President
  • Lincoln's Virtues: An Ethical Biography
  • The Founding Fish


  • Faultline: Your Love Means Everything
  • Bone Thugs-N-Harmony: Thug World Order
  • Badly Drawn Boy: Have You Fed the Fish -- Good Reviews on this one.
  • Various Artists: 20 Years of Dischord -- 3 discs, 74 songs, cool bands.
  • Depeche Mode: Violator
  • Talib Kwell: Quality
  • Marvin Gaye: Here, My Dear -- Possibly the best Marvin Gaye record ever.

    Baby Einstein Library, actually, these are "video board books"; a clever spin off of the Mozart effect, these videos combine wonderful images for baby to watch with music and even foreign language to stimulate their minds! Really very wonderful.
