'Immigrant Song' — Karen O with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

This driving, pounding, compelling cover of Led Zeppelin's mega monster 1970 hit (below)

was in the title sequence of the 2011 film "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," which was where I first heard it.

Director David Fincher personally requested that Reznor create it.

Over the years I've come to prefer it to the original, and it's on my Apple Watch running playlist, on endless repeat, unlike the original.

Easy Breather Memory Foam Pillow

I happened on this pillow somewhere on the inner toobs and decided to get one because my sleep has been spotty of late: "junk sleep," as Liev Shreiber puts it in his commercials for Mattress Firm.

I've been using a pillow I got at Bed Bath & Beyond that was fine when I got it but that was a few years ago.

Long story short: my new Easy Breather pillow has upped my sleep game big-time: a couple nights around ten (10) hours, something I thought was gone forever.

It comes purposefully overstuffed with memory foam pieces and you remove as much as you like to customize it: I pulled out three (3) large Ziplock bags full to slim mine down to what felt just right.

Equally important IMHO is the wonderful proprietary cover that comes with the pillow: it's not a regular pillowcase but rather a kind of 3D fabric that feels really comfortable and cool all night.

Full disclosure: you will not receive a Gray Cat equivalent to snuggle between your arm and chest and make reading more than a page or two in bed impossible as a result of the purring-enhanced emitted soporific field.
