[This may be going off topic, but it's fun...]

In addition to The Day the Earth Stood Still and Monty Python, let's not
forget these other favorites of nerd culture:

* The Hobbit: Isn't as popular now, but was the in thing when I started
in the computer industry in the Eighties.
* Star Trek: Original and Next Generation only -- not Voyager or Deep
Space Whine.
* Babylon 5.
* The Wizard of Oz: "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain..."
* M.C. Escher.
* Dilbert.
* Far Side.
* Chicago Bulls basketball. (Yes, really.)
