2314 – Sunday Digest: The Week in Review

2314 – Sunday Digest: The Week in Review

I am not a religious person. However I was raised in a Catholic household and as a kid attended church every Sunday, and participated with my Catholic schoolmates in receiving all of the obligatory sacraments. I really can’t recall the last time I was inside a house of worship of any kind other than for a wedding or funeral.

Now that I am older I don’t believe in magical and benevolent sky beings or hateful demon creatures torturing the dead in the infernal fires of hell. The Christian holidays have become more about family getting together and enjoying our time here on earth with those we love.

The weather has finally been nice enough to get outside and start some early-season yard work. The previous owner of my current home thought using wooden shipping skids would make a great foundation for the three different decks they built but of course, the untreated softwood has rotted into a pile of mush beneath composite deck boards. I guess they believed the layer of plastic and sawdust would prevent water from getting through. No, I take that back they were just cheap.

Oops, kinda lost focus for a half-inning. The Toronto Blue Jays were sucking a** in Anaheim today but just scored six in the sixth to tie it up! Let’s complete the comeback with a “W” before returning to the newly renovated Skydome! I know but I won’t acknowledge the current corporate stadium name.

This week I found myself listening to one of the albums I cut my musical chops on as an almost teenager. I won’t say I’ve forgotten but it has been a while since I listened to Roxy Music’s Avalon. The album came to the fore again while I listening to Alan Cross’ “The Ongoing History of New Music.” He was talking about how good the album sounded on vinyl because it was originally produced in analog from start to finish. It doesn’t hurt that it was produced at a time when recording quality mattered as well. I do not have a vinyl copy but it sounds great even from my fully lossless streaming service. It was hard to pick a video to post with such great tracks as More Than This, Avalon, The Main Thing but settled on Take A Chance With Me. Hope you enjoy…

Now for the ‘week in review’…

Five Word Weekly Challenge

Lost in the Commotion | A creative use of the prompt words in a very creative look at the afterlife written by Piper at Piper’s Adventures

Ghosted | A hysterical look at what might await a player when he crosses to the other side written by Paula at Light Motifs II.

Making History | I’m hoping Carol at Therapy Bits has given us a prophetic look at The Donald’s future!

A Trick of the Light or… | Sadje at Keep It Alive gives us a truly frightening tale of technology gone wrong and the complete lack of responsibility shown by those who create it. This could be Artificial Intelligence if left unchecked.

Next week…

Look for another Five Word Weekly, Four Line Fiction and some T-Shirt Wisdom. I said it last week and will say it again… Hopefully, some more new posts too.

My Blue Jays did come all the way back and then almost blew it again. They ended up beating the Angels of Anaheim 12-11. Woohoo, have a great week,
