10 things you would describe as mindblowing
 
This applies to entertainment, only... music/movies/video games/books/pieces of art that you would describe as having blown your mind. Limited to 10. The definition of "mindblowing" is pretty loose, this doesn't have to be your favorites in every field or something, these are just things that have helped reshape and change your mind and change how you rethink things. "Life-changing" would also be a good substitute for the word "mindblowing", but I dunno. Here is mine, in no order...:

captain beefheart and his magic band (musician)
dog star man (film)
harry partch (musician)
the holy mountain (film)
ico (video game)
john fahey (musician)
neon genesis evangelion (television series)

the ticket that exploded (book)
xavier: renengade angel (television show)

Okay, go.

Also, thanks for that silly drawing you sent me in the mail!

It was just something I thought you'd like.. Was there any money inside, or did the mailman steal it?

Haha, yeah, there was. Thanks!!!

"my girlfriend (girlfriend)"

haha.

Girlfriend is not a piece of entertainment, though, but I'll let it slide. My girlfriend blew my mind constantly -- usually not for good reasons though.

Pavement (Hip-hop funk group)
Akira (Manga and film)

Dr. Pepper consistently blows my mind as well, but obviously that isn't a form of entertainment.

Ah fuck, Big Lebowski skipped my mind. Nice one though.

Another game (In the list of many) that really just made me go "Wow!" was Maniac Mansion for the NES. Classic.
