It's not on American television-yet-but I have BBC and Comcast OnDemand so I've been watching Law & Order: UK and I love it! Of course, the original will always be my first love, following with SVU, but it's cool watching a verison of the show set another country. Everyone loves an English, Irish, or Scottish accent but you also learn about their law and culture, including the cool but funky language. I'm still wating for a super hot guy to be introduced on the show, but it'll happen soon!

Wow, I didn't even realize today was Saturday!! Ok, this week I haven't been discovering too many new songs but this morning, actually, I listened to this great song that I recognized but couldn't remember what movie it was from. But I do know! It's Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova from the movie Once and they won an Oscar for their song!!
