This week's stuff.
Listening: Talking Heads; Lindstrøm & Christabelle; Arthur Russell; Mission of Burma; Astronautalis.
Reading: Germinal, which I have now finished; The Pregnant Widow, Martin Amis.
Watching: Episodes of Venture Bros. S01 and 30 Rock S03; the rest of The Thick of It S02 (three episodes to a series? That's minimalist, even by the standards of British comedy); In the Loop. Three words: lubricated horse's cock.
