I've Been Here A While

So let's take a minute and talk about all things pop that currently get my juices flowing.

"Back to Black" - Amy Winehouse

What a stellar record. I don't know what's better, Winehouse's massive do, or the fact that she remains credible on a scene packed with wannabes and wish-they-hads.

The Lost Season Finale

This double-length episode just freakin killed me. I find it difficult to think of a network show whose writers stay more true to the story they want to tell than the guys penning for Lost. Kill off major characters? Sure... Kill off people we introduced last week? Sure... Tell you that a couple people totally get off the island down the line somewhere, and then end up addicted to oxycodone or selling out and driving a sedan? Heck ya...

"Rodrigo y Gabriela" - Rodrigo y Gabriela

An entire album of killer guitar from two great players. Download this. Now.

SpiderMan 3

Screw all you ass hats that didn't think this movie was as good as the last two. This was a great capstone to the Spidey trilogy, conveniently left open for the possibility of a Spidey 4. Dude. Chris Nolan should take a page from the book of Raimi.

Speaking of Chris Nolan

The first official photo of Heath Ledger as The Joker in next year's Batman Begins sequel. Daaaaaamn.

See you in the funny pages...
