The focus of my eyes and ears this week
1) Harper's Magazine: Harper's Index is a great tool for becoming/pretending to be the smartest person in the room.
2) Teitur: Buy his album now before everyone tries to burn you a copy.
3) Yoshida Kyodai: Japanese brothers + traditional Japanese instrument = your next CD purchase.
4) The Time Traveler's Wife: A friend encouraged me to buy this before a flight and (though it took a little time) I'm now a fan of this incredible character study and love story.
5) 2005 Pulitzer Prize: No matter your political persuasion or daytime job, awardees of this prize possess something that is inarguably incredible.
