1. I've been extraordinarily good recently, at least in terms of not splurging on DVDs - I think the last DVD I bought was Batman Begins. That's all about to change:
- Clone Wars, Volume 2
- Sin City Special Edition
- Airplane! The "Don't Call Me Shirley" Edition
- The 40 Year Old Virgin
2. Mike needed books to read while on tour, and so I recommended about a million; among other things, he really got into House of Leaves. For my birthday, he bought me Pale Fire, which continues with the whole "multiple-authors-and-texts" idea, and which I'm enjoying the hell out of.; I'm pretty sure this is the first Nabakov I've read; I will probably be reading more.
3. I meant to write about this yesterday, but I was obscenely busy and never got the chance. This is an open letter to my stepfather. Paul, if you ever call me to guarantee a Giants victory ever again, I will hurt you. It's true that the Giants did eventually win, but JESUS CHRIST.
More in a bit.
