I'm reading Prime Obsession right now. I like it. The math is shown, and not talked around, so it's a good introduction to the Riemann Hypothesis. In addition, every other chapter is historical and talks about the story (people, places and politics) behind the mathematics.

And Br. Patrick just got Control Room in the mail, which I'm looking forward to watching.

Have you heard The Fairfield Four? They're a Gospel quartet. (If you saw O Brother, Where Art Thou, they were the gravediggers at the end. Well, three of them were. And that song about death was them.) I only have one of their albums, "I Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray," but I enjoy it immensely. One of the songs is about the Prodigal Son, and has Garrison Keillor reading the parable in between verses.

I'd probably recommend i and meep to anybody, but I haven't checked your friends list to see if they're there.

A quote?

I have heard of the Fairfield Four. I adore Garrison Keillor and O Brother so I'll have to check them out.

I actually first heard of the Fairfield Four on an NPR interview with them, years before O Brother came out. I kind of recognized the style of music (a capella, barbershop quartet sort of thing) on O Brother. I didn't get the album until last year.

1. Tank Girl. It's fun and silly. At one point they sing Cole Porter's "Let's Fall in Love" for no apparent reason.

2. Opus: 25 Years of his Sunday Best. (This is assuming you like Bloom County/Outland comics.)

3. Jenny Toomey - Tempting. Much different than her earlier work, this is more of a pop-lounge album a la Sinatra, Tony Bennett, etc.

4. oblomova. Witty, intelligent, interesting and she lives in Chicago. :)

5. http://www.angryalien.com . They recreate various movies with flash animation (and bunnies).

6. "You can't have everything. Where would you put it?"

3. Laura Gibson, Kelley Jones, or Jaycob VanAuken
4. shemaiah
5. www.compassvancouver.org
6. 'better to keep your mouth shut and let people think your a fool, than open your mouth and remove all doubt'
