Best Thing I’ve Seen This Week 041512

April 15, 2012

It’s a symbiotic relationship. The weeks when I get more work done, I have less time to search for things to entertain me (and vicariously, the rest of you). Not to fear though, I still have one or two things to share.

The best thing I’ve seen this week was “The Wire.” Yes, you read that right. I finally got around to watching it, but I know none of you came here to read about an HBO series from 2002. However, if for some reason you haven’t watched it but don’t have time for five seasons, you can stop after season 3. It wraps up well enough at that point, and frankly, seasons 4 and 5 were pretty weak compared to the first three.

One of the best things I’ve seen this was was a short Facebook update about some new local music. There’s no website or videos yet, but be on the lookout for phoenix that is Texas Whiskey Rebellion to rise from the ashes of The Otis Jones Project. (I’ll come back and re-edit a link into this M-er F-er once they get up and going). It’s always a little sad to see someone stop playing music (even if you end up netting yourself some gear out of it). Conversely, it’s just as good whenever those folks pick back up again.

My personal favorite entry from this week is a bit nerdy, but Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a science G (and I’m a fan of seeding theories). He puts just how “special” we actually are into perspective. I’ve often wondered if the aliens would hunt us in order to regulate population control and prevent overfeeding … like we do with deer.

A far less cerebral choice, but no less awesome is this visually brilliant video for “Rella” featuring Hodgy, Domo Genesis and Tyler, The Creator.
