Bloody Good Snacks

Every week, my Balmer Bestie and I get together to watch flicks and good TV, knock back a few adult beverages and nosh on some munchies. Sometimes, we try to "theme" the food and drink to the evening's programming, such as canapes and extra dry martinis for a showing of The Thin Man, or white russians for yet another visit with The Big Lebowski. (We also grilled steaks for a Buffy marathon - does that count? Get it? Stakes?)

This week, we'll be watching Supernatural, Boardwalk Empire, and most importantly, the season premiere of one of our mutual favorite shows, Dexter. I got an email today, suggesting this as a possible snack to accompany the return of our beloved serial killer and blood spatter expert:

They're lollipops! Isn't that awesome? (as long as they don't taste of Lithgow). The recipe and details can be found here.

What about y'all? Any good suggestions for themed food/booze/entertainment combos?

Disappointing music morning

Trying to find some music online this morning, and was stymied. Specifically, I was looking for the choral performance of "Creep" that's been used in ads for The Social Network...

...and Bob Seger's "Beautiful Loser," which was used so well in last night's season premiere of Supernatural.

Neither was available via easy and legal means (i.e. Amazon or iTunes).
