The Bridge is as sad as you can expect a movie about the world's most popular suicide destination to be, but it's really well made and beautiful.
Potato and Leek Gratin with Cumin from the New York Times. It's good even if you use cheap store-brand mozzarella instead of $16.99/lb gruyere.
Animal Collective - My Girls, which I liked even more once I found the lyrics (below)
There isn't much that I feel I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house
I don't care for fancy things
Or to take part in a vicious race
And children cry for the man who has
A real big heart and a father's grace
I don't mean to seem like I care about
material things like a social status
I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls
