WIRTW #302 (the "peace and quiet" edition)

It’s been a nice couple of weeks of relative peace and quiet (or at least as much peace and quiet as one can get in one’s house during winter break).

While we’re on the subject of peace and quiet, Santa left my 7-year-old a karaoke machine under the tree. And, no, we’re not crazy. It lets her practice for her upcoming debut, which will take place at Brother’s Lounge on January 19. If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by at 2 pm and check her out. “What will we hear,” you ask? You’ll hear my girl playing lead guitar and singing lead vocal on this eclectic setlist:
  • Pork and Beans — Weezer
  • The New Kid — Old 97s (one the best songs you’ve probably never heard)
  • Living After Midnight — Judas Priest
And, lest you still think I’m crazy by giving Santa the thumbs-up on the karaoke machine, here’s a sample from a recent band rehearsal (yes, I’m bragging; it’s my right as a dad).

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:
