I'm planning to turn up some Ratatat and finish A Virus Named TOM (not that its soundtrack isn't great -- it is -- I just really like Ratatat). Jamestown has been calling out to me too, and -- oh yeah -- Orcs Must Die 2 is out. I think I'll skip my usual Sunday morning omelet and put my $15 there. I do really like omelets though, and you can imagine what kind of omelet $15 can get you. A pretty damn good one. Still, there are orcs who need deadening.
