Week in Review: 3/28 through 4/3

Below is a quick pictorial summary of my past week.

For the first time ever we drove through the new tunnel on Memorial Drive.

Jeannie and I on our date night, eating dinner at Riel in Montrose.

Me in class at Rice (where I'm getting my MBA) -- this is where I sit for about 10 hours every other Friday and Saturday.

I started a new book this week: The Interestings.

And me reading my new book outside during our lunch break at Rice.

My favorite ever picture of Brighton and Casper at the Houston Zoo.

Tokyo Vice

Michael Mann has never again matched "The Insider" (my favorite film of all-time), but he's definitely won the right to get my attention on anything he does for the rest of his career. Next up for Mann: Tokyo Vice.

I got 20 seconds into the trailer before I realized that I once started (but then never finished) the book that this series is based on.

The Unravelling of Stéphane Bourgoin

Here's a great New Yorker piece on a once famous and now infamous French true crime writer -- Stéphane Bourgoin -- who spent virtually all of his career inventing experiences and details which he presented as facts. The article describes how he was eventually exposed by a group of amateur Facebook sleuths.

Rediscovered Playlists

About ten years ago, I built a series of digital mix tapes, which consisted of anelectic group of songs from different artists. Each playlist had a theme, but not one that I could articulate -- the themes were more in mood and spirit than anything else. I loved these playlists, but lost them many moons ago when I switched away from my beloved Lala (RIP).

I've recently rediscovered a Google Doc where I (for some awesome yet unknown reason) wrote down each playlist's name and tracks. I've since added them to my current streaming music vendor (Spotify). I share them now with you below. I hope to keep creating these playlists going forward -- I'm oddly proud of them.
