Nice try, but I've got the Foundation series, c/o Mr. Mochi :P
I've got an old cassette (pre-recorded) of "Jumpin' Night in the Garden of Eden," but not the DVD/video version. (Klezmer AND calypso, hm? Good to know I'm not alone there.)
And I married a physicist, so yeah, we've got the Foundation series paperbacks, somewhere in the garage...don't they check for that like a passport when you apply for an engineering job?
"don't they check for that like a passport when you apply for an engineering job?"
I wouldn't be surprised. My husband's an applied mathematician, which is a variant of engineer.
I thought the Foundation was a stretch, as far as obscurity goes. Apparently we need to revise our concept of "canonical" to take disciplinary culture into account....
I toyed with a technical career at one point, but what I love about Foundation is the historical process. I never read them until grad school.
