The Weeklies #270
The Weekly Word. Snollygoster. Definition? A clever, unscrupulous person.
The Weekly Drink. Coffee.
The Weekly TV Addiction. The Good Wife. Damn good show and great subject for a brand new TV addiction.
The Weekly Snack Annoyance. Trail mix manufactures must be getting paid off by the raisin manufacturers. Way too many raisins in trail mix.
The Weekly Read. I love Lee Child and his Jack Reacher novels. Child is just as dependable as his hero, Reacher, and A Wanted Man was no exception. While hitching to Virginia, the nomad-like Reacher finds himself trapped with some bad dudes. What he uncovers is sinister and mysterious...and a hell of a ride. It's not literature but it's damn entertaining.
The Weekly Article Of Clothing I Wish Would Disappear. Ties.
The Weekly Music. I prepared myself to dislike Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt. Despite the fact that I love Pearl Jam and have since the release of their debut Ten, I was dismayed by the reviews which seemed to indicate it was another attempt at a modern punk album. Not my favorite face of Pearl Jam. But Lightning Bolt isn't modern punk. It's a brilliant, well-crafted, stripped-bare album chock full of good songwriting and addictive hooks. No, this isn't Ten or even Yield. But it's good. And it's hard to blame a band that refuses to stand still.
The Weekly Question. Will Congress pay for the shutdown in the upcoming election? Or will we forget about this...like always?Posted by Chris at October 25, 2013 6:32 AM | TrackBack
