The List: Vol. 7

Once again, some things worth checking out/chatting about:

TV: Lost - So what did we think of the premiere, kiddos? Pretty freaking awesome if you ask me. As I told Liz earlier, everyone is totally gonna jump on my "I Heart Terry O'Quinn" bandwagon now, I can just see it.

TV (Part 2): Damages - I don't have any in the theater movies to recommend (it's the crappy time of year), but you know I have an endless supply of TV shows. Damages is back with a new season on FX. Glenn Close rocks my world. This show would actually be pretty easy to jump into without seeing previous season. I mean, you'd miss out on a lot of great backstory, but it's definitely doable.

DVD: Der Baader Meinhof Komplex - I recently watched this Academy Award nominated German film about the early years of the Red Army Faction. It's pretty damn good...especially if you like communism and chicks with machine guns and I think I speak for everyone when I say, "Who doesn't?!"

Music: Stars Set Yourself on Fire - So apparently, this album is 6 years old and this band has been around for 10 years, but this is the first time I've heard it/them (I mean, c'mon...they're Canadian). I'm obsessed with the first track, however. I was shocked (SHOCKED!) to learn they were not comprised of skinny English hipsters! Wonders never cease.

WWW: Unhappy Hipsters - Speaking of hipsters, this site is hilarious.

Your turn to share!

For a minute I thought you were recommending Unhappy Hipsters just for me! (It was pretty funny, too. Kind of a mixed bag, but the good ones were hilarious.)

I have a WWW to recommend myself. It's called Little People. It's weird art that I find strangely compelling. I just love it. http://little-people.blogspot.com/

I tried to add Meinhof to my queue but it's telling me it doesn't come out until the end of next month.

I'm watching In the Loop right now... great stuff.

As for TV, the new show on FX I'm really digging is Archer.

Are you trying to add it to your Netflix queue? Or Blockbuster? I got it from Netflix.

I watched an ep of Archer and laughed my ass off. Good stuff.

Blockbuster... I like the in-store exchange perk. Plus when I get around to buying a PS3 there's no additional charge to rent Blu-Ray. Went there today and exchanged In the Loop for Cold Souls.
