The Weeklies #185

Whoomp, here it is! Take your pick - listen, read or download to listen later.

The Weekly Natural Disasters. Hurricanes and earthquakes.

The Weekly Read. Whilst on vacation I tackled A Small Fortune by Audrey Braun. It's a debut novel and was offered pretty darn cheap on Amazon so I picked it up. The result? Pretty darn good. It was a definite page turner that revolved around exotic destinations, kidnapping and money. Highly recommended if you need a late-summer beach read.

The Weekly Music. Every time I listen to the Beatles I realize just a little more how brilliant they were. I came home this week and Beth was playing the kids some Beatles tunes. Abby Road, to be exact. I've never been a huge Beatles fan but the older I get the more I realize how insanely good their music is.

The Weekly Book Release. You know Marshall Karp's new collaboration with James Patterson is out, right? What are you waiting for? Go grab a copy!

The Weekly Great Michelle Bachmann Quote. “I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.” Then she said it was a joke. Right.

The Weekly Schadenfreude. Does everyone remember last year before the iPhone 4 was revealed that a rare prototype was left in a bar? You'd think they'd learn. Apparently not because it happened again. An iPhone 5 prototype was left in a bar and immediately sold on Craigslist.

I'm digging the song!

I am no MB fan, but from the video it's very evident she was joking. She is guilty of joking about a fatal hurricane, which is bad taste, but I am the last person to criticize her for that. Now, Pat Robertson would say it and mean it.
