JSP Visual Week In Review | 04.12.14
This week’s review is short and sweet. I’m on borrowed time, in a sense.
See, this morning, my wife and little girl, along with my inlaws and niece, loaded up the Honda Odyssey and pointed it south on I-95. They are headed to visit Great Grandma down in Florida. It’s Spring Break week so Liv and Chase are off.
That mean…it’s me and my boys together for the next seven days. We’d done four a couple of times before – and only had to go for stitches once – so we’ll see how the next seven go.
That said, they are napping now and I have a whole “Honey Do…” list to get after. And it’s going to be a beautiful day here in the Great State of New Jersey, so I want to get going.
Gotta make hay while the sun shines. And the young lads are napping…
This Week’s Links:
* The E Street Band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this week. Frankly, I thought they went in in ’99 when Bruce did. Buuuuut…it seems even the best of them can be a little full of themselves sometimes. In inducting his band, Bruce talks about that time. But more so, he talked about how the story he’s been telling for 40 years couldn’t have been done without his band, his friends, his guys. Here’s his speech. (And no, I was not tearing up reading this…it was dust in my eye I tell you!)
* My Matty. I laugh every time I watch this.
* On the strong recommendation of a great videographer, I ordered one of these this week. It came yesterday. Can’t wait to try it out. Killer price point. Will report back.
* I watched Turn last week. Liked it, didn’t love it.
* Interesting Read: The Art of Photojournalism.
* Portraits by Paolo Pellegrin. Wow.
* Finally, Mad Men starts it’s wrap-up laps Sunday night. I’ve been a long time fan of this show, though last year I started to dislike it and Don Draper. Thought it lost it’s mojo. Then I read a couple of pieces over on Esquire.com that said that was the point: We’ve come to know Don like we come to know anyone else. They may be cool and snappy dresser, someone we want to have a Scotch with. But then, after we get to know them for a few weeks, months, years, we see them as they really are. And you just want to rid yourself of them. Happens all the time! That opened my eyes. Wow, what character development, what writing Now I can’t wait to watch it again.
* That said.. SPOILER ALERT: Don Draper is The Yellow King.
This week…two boys….Pray for me.
