What I’m Watching
The new Kevin Bacon show on FOX, “The Following,” started tonight; right now Mel and I are about 20 minutes into the premier, and so far it’s very good. Mel already has busted the writers for making an English mistake in a show about a serial killer whose crimes revolve around Edgar Allen Poe. But, not even halfway through this first episode and we’re in.
What I’m Reading
I’ve got two books I’m reading through right now; making decent progress on them — one is Making Ideas Happen, which I’ve been plugging away at for awhile now, and the second is Quiet, which I still haven’t gotten into a groove with. It’s interesting to be reading both of them simultaneously, since they’re both approaching things from slightly opposite directions. There are a lot of things in Making that I’m trying to take to heart as I plan for the future; I’ve enjoyed this book quite a bit so far, and I’m a little disappointed it took so long for me to get into it after I bought it (which at this point was well over a year ago).
Bad Week for Sports
Mantei Te’o… Lance Armstrong… Ray Lewis in the Super Bowl… Not a great week for sports.
