Listing to the side

What to put on the list for Father's Day?

Mrs. A says that "books, music, movies" is not specific enough.

Ok, fine.

Books:
The Cyberiad by Stanislaw Lem - One of my all-time favorites. You have to be a certain kind of geek to like this book. I am that geek.
Midshipman's Hope by David Feintuch - The first of the Seafort Saga (Hope) series. Military strategy and an unbending code of ethics. In the 22nd century, of course.
Any puzzle magazine (prefer Dell over Penny Press). Ok, that's not a book, but close enough.

Music:
Queen - A Night at the Opera
Kansas - Point of Know Return or The Best of Kansas
Greig - Peer Gynt Suites 1&2
Dvorak - Symphony Number 9 "From the New World"
Josh Groban - Josh Groban
Chuck Mangioni - Feels so Good or Land of Make Believe
Spyro Gyra - Morning Dance or Incognito

Movies:
Ernest Saves Christmas - I happen to like Ernest. Sue me.
The Fifth Element - Don't blink or you'll miss something. And Chris Tucker is a hoot.
Kelly's Heros - "All the time, these negative vibes."
Batman - Jack Nicholson IS the Joker, and Kim Basinger ...
Muppet Movie - De fleem is hokey-dokey.


That ought to give her some ideas. (and probably give you nightmares)
