No, we didn't meander last Monday.
My weekend just didn't provide the necessary fodder.
This weekend was different.
Here's how it went.
ROOM FULL OF MIRRORS - One of my kids got a guitar for his birthday this year. Since then, lessons have been occurring. He's also, much to my delight, been getting into guitar rock. Jimi Hendrix has proven to be a favorite. A month or so ago, he talked my mom into buying him this Hendrix biographer on a trip to the bookstore. Being a good parent, I had to give it a read first. Hendrix is a great guitar role model, but significantly less good as a life one. I remember reading just enough of another Hendrix biography in college to bluff my way through a history paper. This book fills in a lot of the blanks without going into too much graphic detail. It was a well written account of the artist's life - from humble beginnings to superstardom to the end. A recommended read.
THE TRANSPORTER - Saturday night family movie night brought us this Statham vehicle (pun!). I'd seen the second one somewhere along the way and knew it would be safe for all ages. Who doesn't like a big dumb action movie that involves high speed chases in expensive cars. Statham is an enjoyable action hero and the movie didn't require me to think...AT ALL!
SECRET SIX - This is the sole leftover from last week. It seems like all I did during a rainy weekend was read the entire run of this series from DC. Very much like Suicide Squad in setup. Very different in execution. Secret Six aren't, as far as they know, beholden to the government. They answer only to the almighty dollar and their own unique set of morals. I cruised through five TPB volumes and found myself wishing I had more.
