    Was thinking about this and at first seemed like the smart choice but the more I think about it an Encyclopedia could just hit home even harder that you're trapped on a desert island and there's a whole world out there you'll never see

    Maybe I'm thinking too deep into this it's been a slow day

    Music (I'd need to really give this way more thought but I'll chuck some stuff out there):

    Paul Simon- Graceland
    Chief Keef- Almight SO
    UGK- Riding Dirty
    Aaliyah- Aaliyah
    Burial- Untrue
    Richard H Kirk- Virtual State
    Elton John- Madman Across the Water
    Aphex Twin -Selected Ambient Works vol. 2

    Book- Porno

    Item- Skateboard if there was concrete ground, if not PS2 with loads of RPGs

    I thought about that too. Who said you would be stuck there forever? I'd definitely take an encyclopedia if there was a slight hope of being able to see civilization again at some point.

    A lot of you are listing albums. It's technically supposed to just be 'pieces' - which is construed as a song. If you listen to the show the guests never choose albums.

    Albums is better personally, songs feels way too hard but maybe that's just me. Always felt they pick songs because it works better for a Radio format but whole albums is a much more satisfying choice

    Yeah it's got to be individual songs not albums. Take it up with Kirsty.
