Harrison's Favorite Things

If Oprah can do it, why can't I? So here are some products I've come across in the last couple of month that are worth checking out:

[TV] Lost: maybe the greatest television show of all time. If you're not watching it already, go to and catch yourself up before 2009.
[Blogs] Google Reader: If you read more than one blog, and you're not using this, you're working too hard.
[Food] Microwavable Vegetables: Birds Eye steams in 3 minutes and tastes just like you did it yourself.
[Food 2] English Muffins: For breakfast (with some butter or jam) or lunch (with ham and cheese) they are tasty and allow you to forgo the loaf of bread you'll never finish in time.
[DVD] Arrested Development: A show so funny you won't understand why it got canceled.
[Snacks] Stride Gum: The commercials don't lie. It really does last longer than you care to chew it.
[Games] Settlers of Catan: Monopoly + Risk and makes for the greatest board game I've ever played.
[Music] You can search, and usually find, pretty much any song you're looking for. Then take the ones you like and make a play list.
[CD] Paige Aufhammer: Recommended by a family member and then we noticed that Traci lived with her at a camp one summer. Her debut album is wonderful.
[GPS] Garmin nuvi 200: For $160 I never get lost with it (I always get lost without it).
[Radio] National Public Radio: I've had moral qualms with the public nature of the station, but you can't beat the talks. I really like The Story.

*Unlike Oprah, I can't send anyone home with any gifts.


  1. Things you're missing:

    Firefly - Best television series ever. Cancelled before the end of the season.

    Great Mini-series - Band of Brothers. Lonesome Dove

    Good list!

  2. Firefly is awesome! Many would disagree, but I think its Joss Whedon's best. At least the movie gives us some closure.

  3. Schmidt7:14 PM

    "[TV] Lost: maybe the greatest television show of all time."

    Spoken like someone who has not watched The Wire. Get thee to a Blockbuster.

  4. I'll have to check that out Chris. I've also heard 30 Rock is worthwhile.
