At least we can count on Radiohead...

"In Rainbows" is amazing. end of story. As usual, it took quite a few listens for me to get into the new Radiohead album, but once it got through to me...what beauty. This album is played in its entirety (those who know me know it's rare that an entire song gets played, much less a whole album) at least twice a day. My favorites thus far are "Weird fishes/Arpeggi" and "Reckoner" but seriously the whole damn thing is nothing short of amazing.

Watched a movie tonight that I had never heard of beforehand: No Country for Old Men. It stars Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin, among others. Although I did hear about heavy Oscar buzz for this movie from Steve before watching it, I believe my favorable perception of the script/acting is accurate. Perhaps more on this later...this was a fairly deep/serious film to cap off a long week. Some time to digest will certainly be useful...particularly for deciding upon an interpretation of the ending. As a side note, I finally watched the Atonement trailer...if I was dying to see this film before, the need has only been augmented by the preview. The question is not whether I'll see it in theaters, but whether I'll attempt to read the acclaimed Ian McEwan novel first.

Due to the untimely death of my digicam battery, I've been unable to visually log my latest culinary escapades. Recently attempted dishes include roasted pumpkin with herbs and balsamic vinegar (an surprisingly lovely combination); japanese-style curry with potatoes, carrots, and seitan; pumpkin cake roll with cream cheese filling; soft ginger cookies; gingerbread apple pie (from VWaV); golden rum cake (sure it's office appropriate...); cajun chicken linguine; and chocolate chip cookies. On that delicious note, I'm signing off. Have a good night and good weekend!
