1. Bob Marley, Exodus and a whole lotta reggae
    Waiting in Vain is my takeoff song. Being a nervous flyer, I'd need some Bob for my catapult into space.
  2. Anjunadeep 02
    By far, my most played chill out album.
  3. (The best of) New Order and all The Smiths songs ever recorded
    I am a child of the 80s.
  4. All of Mary Oliver's poetry
    To remind me of my home in Provincetown. Plus, her writing is butter.
  5. The Wind-up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami
  6. The Harry Potter series
  7. War and Peace
    Might as well knock this out while I'm up there.
  8. His Dark Materials trilogy
  9. All of Christopher Moore's books
    Especially A Dirty Job. He is the funniest.
  10. The Walking Dead comics
    Someone told me something about Glenn. Now I need to know.
  11. Every issue of The Atlantic Monthly
    This should keep me busy.
  12. Every Star Wars movie
    My biggest fear in 2003 was that George Lucas would die before we found out how Darth Vader became Darth Vader. Never forget.
  13. All of Diane Keaton's films
    Truth: Baby Boom is my favorite movie of all time ever.
  14. Lost
    I liked the ending. Shut up.
  15. Battlestar Galactica (2005-2009)
    Cylons, man. Could be useful material.
  16. Every episode of Happy Days
    The Fonz.
  17. Felicity
    Team Noel forever.
  18. Ruth Reichl's tweets
    And accompanying food photos. Martian food and all.
  19. Rosetta Stone -- Spanish and Italian
    Goal: to be fluent in both languages by the time I return to Earth
