Desert Island Wave!

If you’re a regular reader, you saw my feeble attempt to persuade and change the world a few weeks ago…and here we go again. This time, let’s keep it light.

The inspiration for this post came last night, while sketching in my blackbook and watching The Office. More specifically, I was watching “The Fire”. In it, Dunder Mifflin employees must think of ways to pass time while they wait for a small fire to be put out. Enter Desert Island. I thought it would make a cool blog post.

So here are the rules. I will name a few categories and list the top 5 things in that category that I would bring to a deserted island (or imagine you can only use the following for the rest of your life). You will do the same. On your blog. And send me an email or trackback so I can read it! For my game, a full season of a show counts as one DVD and a 2 disc audio set counts as one cd. Let’s begin!


  1. Empire Strikes Back
  2. No Country for Old Men
  3. Hustle and Flow
  4. Little Miss Sunshine
  5. Scrubs Season 6

I’m young.  I’m allowed to be shallow.

Music CD’s

  1. Weezer’s The Blue Album
  2. 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me
  3. Dave Matthew’s Live at Fenway Park
  4. Brad Paisley’s 5th Gear
  5. Flipsyde

What can I say?  I could listen to Jim Dale all day long.


  1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  2. Star Wars: Dark Forces
  3. Father Gilbert: Dead Air
  4. The Westing Game
  5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone


  1. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
  2. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  3. The Fellowship of the Ring by JR Tolkein

  5. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Board(ish) Games

  2. Chess

For all my designer friends, assume you were restricted to using only the following for the rest of your life (#000 & #FFF are freebies).

  3. #FFBB00
  4. #DDDDDD
  5. #444444

For now, that’s all I’ve got.  So, if you have a few minutes, play with me!  Copy and paste this template or come up with your own.  Add lists (writing utensils, sports equipment, etc) or take away lists.  Have fun with it.

Look forward to seeing your choices!
