2. After such a long weekend of sloth and inebriation, I was prepared to call it an early night last night; then I got sucked into PBS's "Unforgivable Blackness", which was absolutely incredible. And so, in tribute to Unforgivable Blackness, I downloaded Miles Davis' "A Tribute to Jack Johnson", which I'd heard before but never owned. It is also absolutely incredible.
3. I need your help, folks. I was given a $100 gift certificate to Barnes&Noble.com; now I'm trying to spend it. So far, I've got Blink, Kafka on the Shore, and The Fifth Element Ultimate Edition. I've got just under $40 to go.
