The Weeklies #206

The Weekly Band Name. I think I've settled on Loud Sons of Bitches. But I'm still not sure.

The Weekly Bodily Function. I just sneezed.

The Weekly Vowel. O.

The Weekly Read. I finally made it through Andrew Grant's Death In The Kingdom. I'm really torn on this one. After reading the description I'd expected a humble Far Eastern thriller. What I got was a pseudo-James Bond novel. Once I finally gave up and admitted to myself the book was silly, I enjoyed it a lot. But I had to suspend disbelief. Actually I had to suspend disbelief from the highest crane over a pool of hungry sharks. What bothered me most were the constant use of exclamation points and the implausible or just downright false things. Like the fact, by 1991 the main character had met both Bush presidents while they were serving. So, sure, the author should have checked Wikipedia before writing that sentence but still the book was okay. It was an enjoyable, mindless adventure. I'm planning on buying the sequel.

The Weekly TV. I'm still enamored with Community. It's the most unique show on TV and I can't help but laugh at Chevy Chase.

The Weekly Bodily Function, Part II. Dammit, I sneezed again.

The Weekly Music. Ever really checked out Cheap Trick? They've been kicking around for a lot of years but I'd never given them a shot. Until this week. I've discovered that they're pretty darn brilliant. I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do.

The Weekly Bodily Function, Part III. Seriously?

The Weekly Question. Rumor has it that the new iPad will be released next week. Do you care? Are you a tablet owner?

I feel your pain... I've been sneezing all morning. Hopefully, this madness clears up by tonight. I've got a middle school play to go to!

Cheap Trick? Sometimes when your write about music I have no idea what you're talking about (though usually, I know who). You just have a much better ear and your thoughts on music impress me. Anyway, Cheap Trick gets a lot of radio play in my area so I definitely know what you're talking about. Happy listening!

Sneezing is awesome. It's like an orgasm you can have in public. I'm up to six in a row, once a day. Usually in the morning. No, I'm not sniffing pepper. They're not THAT aweome; the orgasms you *can't* have in public are still infinitely superior.

I have a first generation ipad, and kinda don't care when the newer ones come out every other freaking month. I find I rarely use it anyway. Do you care?
