...we've got the means to make amends. I am lost, I'm no guide, but I'm by your side. (Pearl Jam, Leash)

Wednesday links

Just taking a break from my Christmas cookie baking bonanza on my day off (7 dozen. Seriously.) to relay a few bits of news to you . . .

1. Check out my guest post today over on I Guess I'm Floating as I try to help Nathaniel and Connor survive the onslaught of finals and still run a class-act blog.

2. Jesus emailed me this morning with the jubilant subject line: "pearl jam sighting! pearl jam sighting!" with a link to this trailer for the new Adam Sandler/Don Cheadle movie wherein Sandler reprises the mopeyness of his Punch Drunk Love character while channeling the fashion spirit of Bob Dylan:

Yep, I've never heard that one, a brand new Pearl Jam cover of The Who's "Love, Reign o'er Me" (from Quadrophenia) with one of the best Vedder screams laid down in quite a while. Thanks, Son of God!

Love, Reign o'er Me - Pearl Jam

3. Aquarium Drunkard's year-end top list is fantastic. Every time I read it, I want to edit mine to add some of the fantastic albums that he remembered and I missed. Check it out for all the ones I could have just as easily picked.

I'm off to eat maybe one more cookie while they are still warm. When will the internet gain the ability to pipe smells? Because oh that you could enjoy the peanutty goodness of the scents here today. My little brother Brian flies in to town tomorrow (after finally graduating from college!) and he must be feted appropriately, with masses of baked goods.

You can keep your Oasis and Damien Rice lithographs. The next competition should be a box set of vacuum packed cookies.
