This week, I have mostly been:

  • learning the word “manicule”
  • preparing mind for overseeing imminent magazine relaunch
  • really getting into Lost – so much so that I’m now getting old episodes from iTunes and inserting them into the current series to act as handy flashbacks
  • really giving up on Heroes
  • amazed at how much some people love petty bureaucracy
  • watching and loving a live broadcast of the New York Metropolitan Opera’s Madame Butterfly at City Screen (very posh – wore a suit and drank bubbly and everything)
  • loving the new Yeah Yeah Yeah’s album (and being a little confused by the lyric “It’s Derek!”)
  • looking forward to the second issue of Gym Class Magazine
  • eagerly awaiting a velcro-based lawsuit scandal at the Beeb
  • wishing I was at Colophon2009 or the D&AD Peter Saville talk
  • listening to the incredibly clever Stanley L Witkin with the incredibly clever Dr B
  • getting a little obsessy about manicules.
