I seem to have come down with the little man’s cold. Rather than catching up on my sleep, though, I pulled an all nighter catching up on Heroes. I’ve been hearing good things about this show for months. Yesterday afternoon I watched the first episode and then couldn’t stop. It was like eating Pringles. Yes, the show has a definite junk food feeling to it, but I’m hooked. I’ve watched all eleven episodes. And now I have to wait until the end of January for the next installment. Just like BSG. Sigh.
I’ve been a long time fan of Cat Power’s music, but I’ve just lost all respect for her as an individual. She recorded a Cat Stevens cover, specifically to be used in a commercial…for the uber-evil diamond industry. Why couldn’t she just say no, like The Thermals did to Hummer (incidentally, they will be headlining at the Triple Rock on February 27th).
Bonus: Daydreaming of a vacation to New Ephemera…never mind that the place doesn’t exist (via my latest five-minute crush, Tinselman).
Plus: The beginning of the end of Harry Potter. In book form, at least. It’ll be a while before they catch up with the rest of the films.
And: Loved the This American Life Holiday Spectacular.
