i just finished the first novella in king's different seasons: 'rita hayworth and the shawshank redemption' and i definitely enjoyed it much more that i thought i would. i have always written stephen king off as a throw away writer; in the same category as other frivolous best-selling authors, like nicholas sparks or danielle steel.

i also wanted to leave with the new single from recently 'Best-New-Music'd' band, Bear in Heaven. it is off of their new album 'beast rest forth mouth'...i've really been enjoy it:
