PC Load Letter [Open Thread]

I guess my Google pagerank has increased: I am now result #22 for gazebo (right behind the Wikipedia entry!), which leads to many hits from misguided people.

The West Wing - The Complete Third Season: I just started watching this, so I'll have to post a follow-up once I've seen the whole thing. It starts with a special episode they did after 9/11, which honestly wasn't very good: overly didactic, it was set up as a lecture on radical Islam delivered by the cast to high school students. However, it did have Samir from Office Space. The first regular episode is more in the show's usual vein, fortunately.

Smilla's Sense of Snow: Something else I've only just started, so I don't have anything to say about it yet. But I figured I should mention it, since I'm adding it to the sidebar.

The Futureheads: With 15 short songs (almost all are under three minutes) this CD is like musical popcorn (which is not a bad thing). The best part is definitely the band's awesome accents. I'm particularly fond of "Robot".
