Sweet Adeline has this nice picture up on their page celebrating the release of From a Basement on the Hill.

I watched Gods and Monsters last night. Good flick: a nice character study of James Whale without being black and white about conflict. Plus, it was interesting to see "Jenkins" from the Taco Bueno commercials in a movie.

Still trying to look for my VHS copy of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Should be in some box around the house. I just hope that I don't leave it in the VCR when I tape Sparta's performance on Letterman tonight.
