The Weeklies #271

The Weekly Holiday. Halloween. Veddy, veddy skeddy!

The Weekly Affliction. A cold that's somehow rendered my deaf in my right ear.

The Weekly Read. John Rector writes dark, noir novels and his latest, Out of the Black is absolutely no exception. It's a well-told story of good gone wrong but somehow it doesn't seem like a story-line that's worn out its welcome. It has to be said, though, that despite Rector's talent - and unlike his other stellar novels - the novel is a bit forgettable and perhaps not indicative of his best work. Still, an average Rector novel is pretty damn good.

The Weekly Music. I'm kinda digging Ellie Goulding these days. Sure, I picked her two albums up for the kids, mainly the pop-addicted girl-child but somehow her stuff ended up on my iPhone and somehow I found myself listening to those albums and, somehow, I found myself liking them. Now, Ellie isn't nearly as good as the new Paul McCartney album, New, which is stellar. But, still, she's got a good thing going.

The Weekly Beer. Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA.

The Weekly Question. Rainbow Looms - wonderful creative fun or the devil's work?
