The Weeklies #217
The Weekly Affliction. Ten hour plus work days.
The Weekly TV. We have fully succumbed to the awesomeness that is Mad Men while also realizing that our TiVo has nothing on it except all the episodes of this season's So You Think You Can Dance.
The Weekly Scandal. Lance Armstrong investigated again?
The Weekly Music. First thing Tuesday morning I downloaded Rush's Clockwork Angels. Chomping at the bit to get the latest Rush album is something of a rarity. I've always liked them but, to me, their last 20 years of work was just missing something. But there was a lot of buzz around this album. As it turns out that buzz is very well deserved. The last five Rush albums seemed to be about proving they could still rock. What they lost in the process was a certain interestingness that they regained with this release. Don't get me wrong - it still rocks but it's also full of fantastic lyrics, different sounds, and compelling ideas. This might be the best thing they've put out in thirty years.
The Weekly Read. I read absolutely nothing. Or, rather, I finished absolutely nothing.
The Weekly Place I'd Rather Be. Paris.
The Weekly Place I'd Rather Not Be. Syria...and Egypt.
The Weekly Question. How do you get your news?Posted by Chris at June 15, 2012 7:22 AM
