Some media observations:
- Cate Blanchett was really compelling in Blue Jasmine. She does deserve her Oscar.
- Good heartache music: Sarah Bareilles, plus just about any modern folk (Lumineers, Avett Brothers, Brandi Carlile, The Head and the Heart, Mumford & Sons)
- I somehow missed that jazz/blues guitar genius Scott Henderson released Vibe Station a few years ago. Great record.
- I've watched about 16 episodes of Nikita and am still enjoying it.
