4 things I love:
+The New Rolling Stone Album Guide, nearly 1000 pages of rockcritgasm, including great entries from the likes of Matos and Keith Harris, and of course brilliance (as always) from Rob Sheffield.
+VH1's Best Week Ever, which might be the best show on TV right now. Sherrod Small on Jennifer Willbanks, a/k/a the "runaway bride": "What she got in her vagina, candy?!" Also, I have a weird crush on Michael Colton (he's the one with glasses).
+That Gorillaz/De La Soul, "Feel Good Inc.," which is not only soundtracking iPod commercials, but has become an inexplicable hit on modern rock radio, apparently because it sounds good between crap like Seether, Staind, and Mudvayne. Damn Albarn + DJ Dangermouse + Trugoy the Dove should not = a great pop single, but in this equation, it does. [Sounds very good while driving with the windows down, as well.]
+The Special Edition (2001) DVD of Cameron Crowe's best film, Say Anything, with highly enlightening commentary from Crowe and his stars John Cusack and Ione Skye. As good as commentaries get, and a fine exemplification of why I love DVD.

Comments:
I've never watched Say Anything with the commentary running. I think I'll do that right now.
 
You were so right... entirely engaging and really entertaining.

Eric Stoltz was doing PA work? Nuts.
 
Is "Damn Albarn" a (greatest) typo (ever)?
 
Apparently, yes. Whoops. *laughing*
