Around the House
- Everyone needs 2-10 of these 5-gallon buckets (food safe too - from experience, a guy at a home brew store said the plastic is but the orange dye has not been paid to be certified food safe, although I saw a returaunt on Diners Drive-ins and Dives that used them also): http://www.homedepot.com/buy/paint/paint-accessories-apparel/homer-bucket/5-gallon-orange-homer-bucket-55315.html
- Honeywell HEPA filter. i love it, it can clean the air in any room in 30-60 min. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00007E7RY/ref=asc_df_B00007E7RY2069721?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395093&creativeASIN=B00007E7RY&hvpos=1o3&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3119072011448455199&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=
- Dancing Ferret Discs (http://www.dancing-ferret.com/): I bascially like all the music that they produce, based out of Philidelphia.

- Blizzard Entertainment (http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/?-)- I basically own it all.
- Bioware - Some people make moral decisions in their lives - I play bioware RPG's. Because of them, any selfish action anyone does has been redefined in my head as "Renegade" and altrusism has been renamed "Paragon".
- Bag it! The movie. http://www.bagitmovie.com/ Seeing this was a big deal for me and is one of those events that gets you to change your life. Like when people stop eating shellfish after they get food posioning, except better an more constructive.
