I’m out of town for a few days, so I’m resorting to something I rarely do: a week in review post. Some bloggers feature these weekly, such as my blogger buddy Mogadishu Matt. I sort of did one back with “Lazy Sunday LVIII: Spring Break Short Story Recommendations Recap,” but that was more a review of a week-long series of posts, not a review, per se, of the week itself.
Ah, well. That’s just nit-picking. Here’s what I wrote about this past week:
- “Soda City Market” – This post was a review of my excursion Saturday to the Soda City Market, a weekly farmers’ and arts and crafts market in Columbia, South Carolina. I was surprised by the popularity of this post. I guess people like reading about festivals!
- “Morning Movie Review: Brazil (1985)” – This post was my review of the dystopian dark comedy Brazil. I loved this film; my only regret is that I didn’t watch it again before my RedBox rental period expired. It’s one of the best films I’ve seen lately that depicts a “dystopian” near-future, mainly because, for all it’s absurdity, it’s the most plausible depiction of actual reality.
- “Rock in Peace, Eddie Van Halen” – My brief tribute to and obituary of guitar legend Eddie Van Halen. He was truly one of the greats.
- “TBT: Lazy Sunday LVIII: Spring Break Short Story Recommendations Recap” – My revisiting of the Lazy Sunday post of the same name. It seemed appropriate given that Halloween is looming large, and I love spooky ghost stories.
That’s it for this edition of Phone it in Friday. Here’s hoping I wrote some material good enough that you don’t mind reading it (and reading about it) again.
