Seasonal updates

Seeing Christmas stuff in a couple of stores last week got me thinking about the holidays early. Two tasks sprang to mind:

  1. Finally reading Dickens' A Christmas Carol
  2. Expanding the holiday music collection I've built up.

Plenty of time for both, since they can be put off for another month.

The Sundays on Monday

There are times when I just can't get enough of The Sundays. Wish they'd do something new.

Here's Where the Story Ends:



I'd embed more, but Universal doesn't allow embedding of official videos for some insane reason.

The band's been on hiatus since 1997—the singer and her husnand the guitarist are raising their two kids.

Lots of Python

Been watching the new Monty Python doc over on IFC this week: Monty Python: Almost the Truth: The Lawyers Cut. Quite good so far, although spreading it out over six nights (an hour a night) is a little awkward. Found out that it'll be out on DVD soon, but since we're halfway through we'll just keep watching. Need to check and see if there's any bonus stuff on the DVD version. Glad I re-watched all the episodes this summer.

Heard about this event after the fact: A Night of Round Table With Monty Python - ArtsBeat Blog - NYTimes.com. The Spanish Inquisition story is killer.
