Notes, music and thoughts of the day

The season finale of Veronica Mars was... jaw-dropping. Despite beginning with an extended dream sequence and only having a running time of 42 mintues, the show still managed to wrap up nearly all of the dozens of dangling plot threads set up during the second season. Blinding stuff. Fingers crossed the CW - a new US TV network being created from the collision of the WB and UPN - has the wit and intelligence to pick up Veronica Mars for a third. Roll on the season 2 DVD collection, too.

Music recommendations of the day: I Hear the Bells by Mike Doughty [check it out at his MySpace site - ], as featured in an earlier episode of VM; All 'Cause of You by The 88 [as recommended by Kiefer Sutherland on iTunes]; and She Still Loves Him by Jellyfish [ditto].

Ditto - what a great word. I could say it all. Ditto.

Wouldn't worry about the third season pick-up. Did you catch the line: "CW?" "It's a done deal." To me, that only means one thing - Rob Thomas is a clever, clever bastard, and Veronica Mars will be back.
