Here's just some of the pop culture I'm obsessed with at the end of 2006. Note that little of it is new, I tend to find myself digging back into the past for my obsessions, which makes it much easier to find them at used bookstores and the like, anyway.
Daniel Johnston's music
Margaret Cho's comedy
The great BBC series "All Creatures Great and Small"
The awesome movie "The Queen"
My new hybrid Civic
Reading the entire Pearl S. Buck oeuvre
Reading Zadie Smith
"Peanuts" collections from the last years of the strip
Cooking my way through the recipes in my family recipe book
How much I am sucking in my office football bowl pool
