Yes it finally arrived--my Radiohead "In Rainbows" discbox. Just finished listening to the full album on 45rpm 180g vinyl and it was like hearing it again for the first time. Absolutely stunning and worth every overpriced penny.

I also got my first real Christmas present of the year today! Tanner got me the Criterion Collection special edition of Ingmar Bergman's "Wild Strawberries", one of my favorite films of all time. Only goes to show that as incredible as Tanner is as a blogger, designer, puppy dad & sex machine, he's an even better friend--thanks again man!

I was going to take a picture of me with my gift, but sadly realized that no matter how clever my photographic treatment, it could only pale in comparison to Tanner's reaction spread to the Schubert CD I got him last year. So you'll just have to use your imagination about my degree of excitement. Let's just say the DVD case is already sticky and smells vaguely of bleach.

Wild Strawberries — within my top 3 Bergman films. I have that edition. Solid.

Tanner should start getting me some gifts.

Listened to the second "Rainbows" disc today, but not closely enough to offer any opinion. I think it was good. But I was distracted by fogey-Zep on YouTube, while it lasted.

Glad you like it man - it was either that or "Live free or Die Hard" but i know you're waiting for that on Criterion. And i don't blame you.
