The Weeklies #244

The Weekly Find. Jeans that fit. Perfectly.

The Weekly App. Feedly. My Google Reader news feed presented nicely, everywhere.

The Weekly Great Geek News. JJ Abrams directing the new Star Wars? I'm in.

The Weekly Read. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore (Robin Sloan) is hands down the best thing I've read in 2013. I know that isn't saying much but I have a sneaking suspicion it'll stay towards the top of that list as the year goes on. It is pretty much the ultimate book to geek out with, especially if you like books, bookstores, technology, Google, typography or all of the above. It was one of those books that I was truly sorry to see end.

The Weekly TV. I'm still hopelessly stuck on BBC crime dramas, primarily Sherlock and MI5.

The Weekly Question. Who wins the Superbowl?

Since you're still stuck on BBC, have you discovered Luther yet? If not, I highly recommend it.

I learned this week that the Harbough brothers are related to IU basketball coach Tom Crean. This means I'm rooting for a huge hole to open in the earth on Sunday and swallow the Superdome. Or at least the head coaches.

Have y'all watched "Doctor Who" all the way through yet? If so, what'd y'all think? I just started the first season, first episode this morning. :)

Niners because the Ravens used to be the Browns, and GO STEELERS!

The Super Bowl? Huh? They still do that? Who's playing?
