Adam Savage – Mythbuster

These are Adam Savage’s good things.

Good things to read.

Taken from Savage’s Twitter feed he suggests, Hollywood Sketchbook: A Century of Costume Illustration saying “my favorite subject: costumes!”.

His feed also suggests checking out A Million Little Bricks about the history of Lego’s – “The best part of the book is the pictures.”

“Finished! Just read the last book in Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin novels. Awesome. Wish there were more. Next up: Hornblower”

Good things to watch.

Blade Runner is a Savage favorite as are Poltergeist, ET, The Thing, Wrath of Kahn, and Tron.  As BoingBoing points out, 1982 was a good year for movies.

Good things to use.

Savage told Wired that he liked “expensive stuff” on eBay one of which was a Curta Mechanical Calculator – gear driven with a crank of course.  He also thought a helmet with “carbon-fiber shell with lambskin lining” was pretty great.
