The Weeklies #191

The Weekly Ice Cream. Edy's Peppermint.

The Weekly Heroic Food. Frozen peas have served me well.

The Weekly Uncomfortable Feeling. Rejoining the real world after a long weekend of sitting on my ass what something of a shock. That said, it's nice not to be sitting on my ass.

The Weekly Read. Don Winslow is an author I admire. He takes seemingly simple stories and peppers them with such rich detail you feel as if you're a part of the world he's built. Winslow's latest - The Gentleman's Hour - is a sequel to his earlier book, The Dawn Patrol, featuring private eye Boone Daniels. But if you haven't read the first, there's nothing stopping you from picking up this one. The mystery at hand is twisting and surprising without being implausible or overly complex. The writing is stellar in a style all Winslow's own. As with The Dawn Patrol, I had to give this one five stars. And that's something of a trend with me and Winslow's novels.

The Weekly Event. We went to see Disney On Ice. Perhaps the only thing worse than Disney on Ice is Disney on Gravel.

The Weekly Defeated Tyrant. Gadhafi.

The Weekly Music. I'd be okay if I didn't hear Bippity-Boppity-Boo for a while. Now, I don't have any music reviews for you this week but I do have a Weekly Kick Ass Music Podcast. You can download it or stream it in your browser or use the player below to check it out!

The Weekly Question. So, what are you thinking about the podcasts when I bother to post them?

So I just started listening to them last week but I enjoy them. I always like hearing new music - I know you steered me to a couple in the past from your Friday mentions - and listening to a voice is a pleasant change.

My husband keeps asking me about it, then I put on my headphones and listen. I'm afraid the music doesn't go over well with people 70+ years old.

Hey Chris -- loved the Frightened Rabbit song. I have not heard that one before.

Sorry for the radio silence these days....not enough hours in the day.

Hope your boys are healed-up! It was not so bad - now the waiting is the hardest part....I am not sure if that was dirty or a pun, but neither were intended...

One more thought, I would love it if you would end your podcast with that little beep sound that is at the end of tapes....I miss that noise....

There was not enough talking. I am miffed.

The podcasts are great, especially as long as your taste in music continues to not suck.
