The Delicious: Suspended In Air

Indie intellectu-rock in a waltz time signature from the feverishly smart Bloomington, Indiana rockers, The Delicious.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather.

Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was.

End of year lists

First a list of things to be happy about:

  • Christopher Nolan
  • Zooey Deschanel
  • Star Wars
  • Ridley Scott
  • The Beatles
  • Bobble Hats. Yes it’s a slightly controversial inclusion, but I needed to test lists with multiple lines per item.

Then a list, in order of priority of all the top 5 films of 2010:

  1. Inception
  2. Scott Pilgrim vs The World
  3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
  4. Toy Story 3
  5. Where the Wild things are (OK that was 2009, but…)

Here’s the code to make it happen:

Faced with the choice between changing one’s mind and proving there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.
