I have to admit that I’ve always been a much bigger fan of the idea of Ryan Adams than his music. Sure, there have been songs here and there that I’ve dug, but in general I appreciate his music more than I actually enjoy it. That seems to have changed with the release of his latest album, Easy Tiger. I picked it up on Tuesday and have already listened to it several times. I think I’m hooked.

Mythbusters

Mythbusters is one of the coolest shows on TV today. If you’re not familiar with it, the basic concept is that a team of very smart people put urban legends and other myths to the test and label them Confirmed, Plausible, or Busted. Mythbusters Results is a site dedicated to tracking the results of each myth they’ve tested. It makes for a pretty cool repository of knowledge.

Kill Bill
The general public will finally get to see Quentin Tarantino’s epic masterpiece Kill Bill as it was originally conceived: as one long asskicking movie. Amazon is now listing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, a 247 minute DVD coming out November 6. w00t!

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the fourth Indy movie

As much as I think they should have just left the series off at Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade I have to admit seeing this picture gets me excited for the fourth installment. Damn you Spielberg!
