Res publica non dominetur


Here I will maintain a comprehensive list of media I’ve come across that is exceptionally high in quality and educational value. While most people prefer to spend their time indulging in such fascinating mental adventures as “American Idol” and “Dancing With The Stars” … I prefer to take in things that have value beyond just killing time. Sadly, alot of this stuff isn’t discussed frequently, and I find out through word of mouth or some other obscure source. So here is my repository of “worthy” media, grouped by category, with the best stuff in each category first.
