    6 pop albums is about 6 too many for me. If Queen counts I'll take some of those.

    I know almost nothing about Pop, but I'm not going to let that stop me.

    1. Taylor Swift - 1989. She's ridiculously popular, and I recognize two songs off of this album. Also the video for Blank Space is great because she just flails against a tree and shows off crazy eyes and it's hilarious.
    2. Gorillaz - Demon Days. I like Clint Eastwood as a song more than any single track on this album, but I like this album as a whole more than their first one.
    3. blink-182 - Enema of the State. This album was pretty much my sophmore year in college.
    4. Michael Jackson - Thriller. Hearing this record as a kid blew my mind. Also the video for Thriller probably scared me a little too much.
    5. Need for Speed Underground - Soundtrack. This is definitely cheating, but it's got Rob Zombie, Lil Jon, BT, The Crystal Method, and a shitload of other popular acts of the day.
    6. LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem. They were everywhere for a hot minute, and now they're probably just in my playlists, but I don't care.

    If I didn’t have “1” (The Beatles) chosen in my six rock albums it’d go here, but it is, so here are my choices so far:

    – Top Gun: Deluxe Edition (a deluxe edition of the soundtrack to 1986’s Top Gun)
    – Number Ones (a greatest hits album by Michael Jackson)
    – The Definitive Collection (a greatest hits album by Lionel Richie)
    – Celebration (the third greatest hits album by Madonna)
    – 1989 (the fifth studio album by Taylor Swift)

    My final choice is a Kpop or Jpop album, I’ll just have to decide on one.

    - Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense (live extended bonus edition)
    - Blondie - Greatest Hits
    - Sohodolls - Ribbed Music for the Numb Generation
    - David Bowie - Let's Dance
    - The Beatles - 1
    - Pulp - Different Class

    If I go back and do rock I might drop David Bowie for Pet Sounds, and include a Bowie compilation in rock instead. Or not.

    -The Police (self-titled compilation album from 2007)
    -The Biggest and the Best (Duran Duran compilation album covering the '81-'90 period)
    -Now That's What I Call Music 34 (UK compilation album from 1996; just look at that track list. Look at it!)
    -Grosse Pointe Blank (soundtrack album)
    -Shock Value (Timbaland with a plethora of guest artists)
    -Jock Jams, Volume 1 (so many anthems/songs to get pumped up)

    Today's genre/category is: Science-Fiction Books

    md_36e0113b0633-bestscifi.jpg

    What six sci-fi books do you choose for your communal doomsday bunker?

    Are you leaning towards older classics of the genre or will you try to include some newer/modern inclusions? How many of you will feel required, as if by blood, to include Douglas Adams upon your list!?!

    Gideon the Ninth - Tamsyn Muir. The Locked Tomb series is the most fun I've had reading in decades. Plus it's important to me to try and bring in NZ media when I can.

    Dune - Frank Herbert. Might as well go with a classic, and the first Dune book is the Ur-template for sci-fi epic space opera.

    Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus - Mary Shelley. This might be my favourite book of all time? I'm not sure. If you've never actually read the original because you're basically familiar with the details, I genuinely think you're denying yourself of one of the greatest books in existence.

    Wraith Squadron - Aaron Allston. Sometimes I'm in a mood for lowbrow, pulpy fun adventure, and Wraith Squadron pushes all my buttons for that, with he added bonus of X-wings.

    The Martian - Andy Weir. I'll take this modern take on near future Mars exploration as my Red planet representative; but I might swap for Red Mars if I can sneak in Andrew Chaikin's A Man on the Moon in a non-fiction list. Maybe.

    Snow Crash - Neal Stevenson. I'm kind conflicted about this one. I feel like I need some cyberpunk on the list, but while I once loved Snow Crash, I've cooled on it over time. Should I go back to Neuromancer? The problem is I find cyberpunk dates over time, I think. So maybe I should pick something new like Altered Carbon? Hmm.

    I was tempted to add some Anne McCaffery, but Pern straddles the sci-fi/fantasy divide and my favourites are more on the fantasy side, I think.

    Dune, by Frank Herbert. My favorite book! Also inarguably one of the most influential scifi novels of all time. Read Dune. Dune is good.

    The Player of Games, by Iain M. Banks. This is my personal favorite book of The Culture series. It manages to at once have stakes that are small and personal, literally a man's own conception of his self-worth, while also dealing with a galactic scale conflict. Iain M. Banks was a master of managing both in his stories and his books are some of the most hopeful I've ever read. Much like Terry Pratchett, taken too soon.

    Ancillary Justice, by Ann Leckie. Hoo boy. This series came close to dethroning Dune in my personal hierarchy. You will care so intensely about every character you're introduced to. Just an incredible book. I fear saying too much because some of the early reveals are fantastic "whoa" moments.

    Artificial Condition, by Martha Wells. This isn't the first book of the Murderbot series but it is my favorite, largely because it's when ART is introduced. These books are such cathartic reads, every time. No shithead left un-punched, no teenager left un-rescued from their own deeply stupid decisions. They're also funny as hell.

    Ninefox Gambit, by Yoon Ha Lee. These books have one of the weirder systems of...magic? I guess? But it's really just super advanced physics based on rigid enforcement of a hierarchical calendar? In the far future in space? Seriously, they're fucking wild. The ghost of a long dead famous general is implanted in a promising young infantry captain so that they can break a rebellion by calendrical heretics.

    Neuromancer, by William Gibson. Look. I will not actually go to bat for this as being an especially good book. The writing is so-so, even by the standards of the time, the dialogue frequently feels written by robots, and the central plot is nothing special. But if you look at any cyberpunk media today (hell, even some actual technologies in the real world), you will see this book.

    - Pages: 912
    - Summary: Containing Dune, Dune Messiah, and Children of Dune, Frank Herbert's evocative, epic tales are set on the desert planet Arrakis, the focus for a complex political and military struggle with galaxy-wide repercussions due to it being the source of spice, a mind enhancing drug (and the most valuable substance in the galaxy) which makes interstellar travel possible.

    #5. Star Wars Tales (Omnibus)
    - Author(s): Various Authors, Kevin J, Anderson (editor)
    - Year(s): 1996
    - Pages: 857

    #6. It’s Superman!
    - Author(s): Tom De Haven

    - Pages: 384
    - Summary: Set during the 1930s, this period-piece tells the tale of Clark Kent's beginnings into becoming Superman, where Clark befriends a wrongly convicted photographer named Willi Berg, and is then taken from Kansas to Hollywood and finally in New York where he meets Lois Lane, and combats Lex Luthor, after debuting as his superhero persona.

    1. Mace: The Dark Age - Man, I pumped so many quarters into this in college. Al' Rashid is MY DUDE.
    2. Mortal Kombat 11 - there are so many of these, and 11 is the most recent one. I played the hell out of I and II back in the day, but MK is all about fighting bein' gross, and good lord is this one crunchy.
    3. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo - Can't have MK without SF, and this is the one with the longest name I could remember.
    4. Divekick - This is what all fighters boil down to, so sure, let's have the bar any fighting game needs to clear.
    5. Dead or Alive 5 - She kicks high.
    6. Soulcalibur II - It was either this or one of the Smash games, and the latter never really did it for me. SCII specifically, because I got snagged by Talim and her tonfa-but-bladed weapons away from Nightmare.

    Tekken... something
    Gang Beasts
    Yakuza 0... Never played it but it's appearance in the best game thread convinced me it might be worth a look.
    Shit... Uh... Double Dragon 2? Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball? Look, if someone feels strongly about something they can have this spot. Most important thing is having someone to play with, so you know, guaranteed opponent/partner.

    I originally had TMNT: Turtles in Time on mine but I had concerns about replayability.

    And thus Castle Crashers took its place.
