Stranded on Classick Isle (The League)

Wilson

This week’s assignment from the League of Extraordinary Bloggers….

You are stranded for 10 years on a deserted island. You can take with you the following:
One food item (in a never-ending supply), one movie, one game, and one pop culture character. 

Oh, the time-honored stranded on a deserted island question… let’s just say that I’ve mentally imagined several versions of this scenario over the years. For this line-up, I went with things that were either greatly desired or practical. As with most lists, ask me this same question next week and my answers may change…

(+ be sure to checkout the Atomic Geeks Podcast if you aren’t already a listener!)

Food: Curry Goat Roti

OK, so spending a decade on a deserted island means certain food items will already be accessible. I’m assuming there will be lots of vegetation and flora about, so I’m handled on the greens front. The occasional fish, shrimp and conch will also prove attainable, depending on my Castaway skills. So that leaves room for a food item that I would eat at any hour of the day and is not likely found anywhere in those confines. I go with a nice and filling curry goat roti, filled with rice, chick peas, potato. Hell, if I can get them to throw some spinach or callaloo in there as well, bonus! This is a West Indian dish that I would never turn down and hell, I’m on an island, might as well eat something from my heritage! If you’ve never had a roti, well think of it as the West Indian version of a burrito, only without the sour cream and guac. And even though you can have it with beef or chicken, I choose goat because that’s my favorite meat. Curried only, please, and it must be prepared by either my mother or some other West Indian mother.

Runners-up: Items from the Chick-fil-A or Chipotle menus, Ranch sunflower seeds, Pistachio nuts, any authentic New York pizza (not just “New York-style”, I want some Famous Original Ray’s or Original Famous Ray’s or Joe’s Pizza where Peter Parker got fired from in Spider-Man 2!)

Movie: Starship Troopers(1997)

A decade of a movie that I can watch any time I choose. I either assume I’ll have control of when this airs (A deserted island with a remote? How convenient!), however even if this movie were to air repeatedly on endless loop, I’d like to have one where I can jump in on any scene and enjoy. Starship Troopers is a popular ’90s sci-fi cult classic that furthered the careers of Neil Patrick Harris (making his comeback since Doogie Howser, M.D.), Denise Richards (fresh off showing her bits in Wild Things) and turning Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer and Jake Busey (who later went on to star in Shasta McNasty and inherited Dad Gary’s signature row of madman teeth) into household names.
