I've never really been one for putting booze in the stuff, but good God do I love a glass of egg nog. For best results, serve with way too much cinnamon on top and a mincemeat tart or two.

Grimes is so good. "Flesh Without Blood" is what got me hooked.

I bought Floor Kids on launch day after months of anticipation, and I haven't been disappointed. It's a rhythm game, which I haven't played many of. But I really appreciate Floor Kids' more freeform style and WarioWare-like gameplay loop.

Believe it or not, you're hearing a trumpet and a male voice on this track:

That's the way I'm leaning. When things got really bad for me, Facebook was a top tier time waster.

I've been rediscovering a love of jazz lately, and picked up John Coltrane's My Favorite Things.

I usually have to take my time with Dickens, but this last one took months. I just couldn't seem to get into a good rhythm with it.

    I like the name, Dragon's Teeth. What's it about?

Historical fiction about the Bone Wars. It's a previously unpublished manuscript, so it's in need of some editing, but I'm digging it so far.

    And what's the biography of the Buddha called?

I thought maybe I was forgetting a subtitle or something, but the book's just called Buddha.

Finished Oliver Twist a little while ago after reading it off and on for the last few months. I enjoyed the book, but found it very slow going for some reason.

At the moment, I'm reading Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichton and trying to get myself started on Karen Armstrong's biography of the historical Buddha.
