The Weeklies #218
The Weekly Wagon. For some strange reason I decided this should be a dry week. Yep, no beer. While I realize that's like The Skipper without Gilligan, I've actually found it interesting. I can't begin to explain how much more energy I have and how much better I've been sleeping. Kinda want a beer though.
The Weekly Event. Swim team! Over the past week, Mia's managed to score herself three first place victories. She might be short but she's fast!
The Weekly TV Addiction. Primevil, a BBC show now in it's fifth season. With the girls at rehearsal and the boy in bed, I'm digging some hot dinosaur action.
The Weekly Read. Watch Me Die by Lee Goldberg is like the literary equivalent of a Ho-Ho. It's not good pastry but its cheap and satisfies the craving for something crappy and sweet. Watch Me Die was not the greatest mystery ever. But it was entertaining, cheap, and fun. Would I read something else by Goldberg? Definitely.
The Weekly Music. I heard some clips that convinced me to buy North Atlantic Oscillation's Fog Electric. Never heard of them? Neither had I. But I'm damn glad I picked up the album. It's very mellow, haunting vocals and sparse instrumentation that comes together to form this really fantastic, moving album. I can't recommend this one enough.
The Weekly Awesome Thing My Son Said To Me. When I'm your age I hope I'm as tall as you so we can hug a lot and you won't have to pick me up.
The Weekly Question. What are you listening to right now? What artists are grabbing your attention?Posted by Chris at June 22, 2012 8:07 AM
