I've watched more television in the last 1.5 weeks than I've watched in a year. Seriously. I've been flipping between the Discovery channel, the Travel channel, and the History channel. I'm addicted. It's probably a good thing I don't have a TV in Kirksville. Oh, and I've been reading Smithsonian magazine, and I have to say, I love it. Usually I'm not a magazine person, but I think Smithsonian is becoming an exception. How sad is it that my favorite forms of entertainment are all relatively intellectual?
Oh, and I discovered an excellent new post-rock band: Grails. I suggest Stoned at the Taj Again, Bad Bhang Recipe, and Back to the Monastery.
