The Weeklies #167

The Weekly Affliction. I have the right knee of an arthritic 90 year old.

The Weekly Number of Hours Spent in Meetings. 32. I'm not even kidding.

The Weekly Dream. Mia and I were walking through a church. It was elaborate and strangely constructed. In one part we discovered parents holding a baby and a female pastor-like person was doing a laying-on-of-hands healing thing. We got the hell out of dodge only to hear that it hadn't worked as we left. And apparently our presence was necessary because the pastor lady chased us all the way down the street after which she proved to be a transvestite assassin. Mia and I ran faster.

The Weekly Time Waster. Tasty Planet.

The Weekly Read. Hide by Lisa Gardner was a worthy, even better, successor to Alone which I reviewed a couple weeks back. It's a really well-developed and well-written thriller that I found compelling all the way through. Highly recommended.

The Weekly Music. Elbow is one of the great unrecognized bands in existence. Their latest Build A Rocket Boys! is a gorgeous, astounding addition to their catalog. In fact, the song from which the title is derived (Lippy Kids) might be one of the most moving pieces of music I've heard in a very, very long time.

The Weekly Schadenfreude. This isn't schadenfreude. It's other people's schadenfreude. That's the only way I can explain Celebrity Rehab and all the other reality crap like it. It seems like fun to watch these addict fame-whores struggle until one of them dies. Then it becomes very real. Mike Starr - original bassist for Alice In Chains and Celebrity Rehab graduate - died this week. He was 44.

The Weekly Question. Three words that summarize your week.
