Look, I don't mean to litter this site with High Fidelity references (exhibit A and exhibit B), but I'd be remiss not to include a "what really matters is what you like, not what you are like" quote GIF on the same page where I aim to draw your attention to a Q&A series where people are asked what they like. I mean…
For those not already familiar, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED W/ is a re-occurring feature where the same 5 questions are sent to different people from both my irl and url worlds—two alternate universes that sometimes become one. The questions in question cover the full range of important life categories that one could ever hope to receive recommendations in.
I am, of course, talking about Music, TV/Film, Books, The Internet and—to make sure all bases are covered—Anything.
You'll be hard pressed not to find at least one solid recommendation from each Q&A that you can take back to your personal orbit and make things a little better there.
Since this site has been on hiatus during an extended & apparently never ending remodel, someone might say that it has "technically" been awhile since any "new" Highly Recommended Q&As have been posted—and that someone might have a point.
But here's a more important thing that I realized after having to re-format old post after old post during this site redesign:
THESE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Q&As AGE REALLY WELL. LIKE *REALLY* WELL.
I guess that's why you don't find expiry dates on those things we keep up on life's top shelf.
That being said, you can definitely expect a whole crop of fresh new Q&As to start popping up on the site once I turn the heat back on. So why not take a leisurely minute or two to catch-up on some of the excellent recommendations featured above? Or just start flipping through them all, one by one?
You might even say that doing so would be… highly recommended (eh? eh?).
On a related note: for the @HIGHFIVEFOR Twitter (not to be confused with my @HI54LOFI Twitter), I'm going to just follow the accounts of people who have done a Highly Recommended Q&A—as I think that might make for a lovingly different Twitter than my personal account gives me.
