1. The advert for reading books which, in itself, is a bit weird and is like advertising eating or going to bed early, but which quotes from the brilliant novel “The Great Gatsby” which I will read again just as soon as I’ve finished “Microserfs” (wow, lots of “which”-es).
2. Dexter (I’m avoiding linking to the official site because I’m behind and it’ll probably have spoilers), which has always been pretty good but which has just got GREAT. I still find certain aspects of the series disturbing – I can’t get past feeling uncomfortable with Dexter’s adoptive father training him to channel his desire to kill – but, stylistically, it’s really impressive and the plot has definitely just picked up. I sort of saw the latest “big reveal” coming but it was satisfying all the same.
3. The journal that Omar got from etsy for me for my birthday and the sentiment contained therein.
4. The following songs:
“How My Heart Behaves” by Feist (see below)
“Red” by Elbow (which was equally brilliant live)
“Power Lunch” by Har Mar Superstar & Beth Ditto (which is ridiculous and yet strangely great)
“American Boy” by Estelle & Kanye West (no, really – I can’t explain it)
“Black & Gold” by Sam Sparro (even though the video is BORING and, as Chris and Omar point out, the song never really goes anywhere).
