Right now, I've been on a big horror kick, plowing thru several Brian Keene books. He's a pretty good writer in the pulpy horror vein. Over the xmas break, I read his "Dead Sea" (zombies), "Ghoul" (ghouls), and "The Conqueror Worms" (end of the world).
I just started his "City of the Dead" (more zombies). Of the four, "Conqueror Worms" was the weakest. I'm not sure if I'm getting burned out on the style or if the book just wasn't very good. Regardless, if you like horror, check him out. His books are quick reads, and go down easy.
On the music side of things, my wife gave me an iTunes giftcard, which I promptly spent on Sleater-Kinney's "The Woods" (their last album) and Clinic's "Visitations". I've already made my feelings known about Sleater-Kinney. Clinic kicks serious butt. It's an awesome album.
