1. Last night's Yankees/Red Sox game was one of the best - if not the best - games I've ever seen, ever. So much drama (Pedro plunking Sheff!). So much heart (Jeter's catch!). So much insanity (Boston's 5-man infield! Jon Lieber getting ready to hit! Both teams loading the bases multiple times in extra innings and not scoring! John Flaherty, hitting .158, driving in the winning run after Manny put the Sox ahead in the top of the 13th!). If you don't like baseball - if you can sit through that and not appreciate how baseball is the greatest game ever, then I have no use for you.

2. Couple days ago I went on a DVD binge; got the special edition of Blazing Saddles, Soapdish, American Beauty, and then FINALLY got the Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze DVD collections. During the game's commercial breaks I watched a bit of the Gondry DVD, and had my brain summarily destroyed. The man is a genius. I know a bunch of you have seen these as well - is the Chris Cunningham one worth picking up, too? I watched the trailers for his DVD and was pretty impressed/creeped out.

3. Weekend is shaping up to be a doozy; tonight is a drinkfest; tomorrow is an all-day BBQ/drinkfest followed by more drinking; I gotta find some time this weekend to record more music...
