1. It's a good thing I'm not a headline writer for any sports section of any New York newspaper today, because all my ideas would be something like "FUCK" or "JESUS FUCKING CHRIST" or "ENOUGH WITH THE FUCKING CHOKE-JOB". While some of my Boston-loving LJ friends would have you think otherwise, this series is now Boston's to lose. Consider that the Yankees had the lead in the 8th inning for games 4 and 5 and had the winning run at the plate in game 6. What else could they possibly need? Even my radio mojo has failed.

2. What's incredibly frustrating about this 3-game-long choke job is that it's preventing me from working on the music for this 6 Characters film short that's premiering in a little over a month. In a perverse, horrible way, I'm even sort of hoping that the Yankees lose tonight just so I can have my brain back and I can concentrate.

3. Yesterday, I bought Ed Wood, which I've never seen but have been salivating over forever, and Arrested Development, Season 1, which Kath and I watched the first disc of last night and which made us both very happy.

4. Having finished THE BAROQUE CYCLE, I am now enjoying Cryptonomicon even more than the first time I read it. I don't know what Neal Stephenson is presently working on, but I'd love it if it were something like THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ENOCH ROOT.

Still nothing for #5. Weak.

HOT OFF THE PRESS: rumors are starting to fly around that my favorite Frenchman, J.P. Jeunet, may be directing an upcoming Harry Potter film. That page also has some poorly-written reviews of Jeunet's upcoming "A Very Long Engagement", which I'm also looking forward to.

Off the top of my head, here's the 3 movies I'm most freaking out for:

1. A Very Long Engagement
2. The Life Aquatic
3. Ocean's Twelve
