One of the staple foods in my daily routine is the humble microwave popcorn. There's an endless supply of gratis genetically engineered goodness in the office breakroom, so I find myself gorging every now and then.

Thing is, those kernels have an uncanny habit of lodging in my throat on the most inopportune moments -- like just when I'm about to deliver a rousing discourse on the merits of using semicolons in marketing copy.

You guys get popcorn? Man, how lucky are you?

We just get apples. Which, I may point out, you can still choke on, and only tast 1/4 as good.

btw, is the guy in this picture famous? I copied it from an Aussie online pub (the Age, I think).

That's Nick Cave, of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Depressing music, sort of gothic, sort of scary, altogether depressing. He did a duet with Kylie Minogue a few years ago that was quite good, and then seemed to disappear altogether.

He also wrote a movie that came out recently, I think it was called the Proposition?
