Lisa’s Week In Review — 1/8/18 — 1/14/18

The second week of January, 2018, has come to a close and it’s time for me to again share my week in review!

This week was okay.  Or, at the very least, it was okay for me.  Everyone else in the country seems to miserable but I spent last week with a terrible cold so I’m just happy to be able to go outside again.  I’ve been told that there’s a fairly good chance that we’ll get some snow tomorrow night so I’m ending this week looking forward to the next!

Movies I Watched

  1. 10/31 (2017)
  2. American Made (2017)
  3. Cat People (1982)
  4. The Commuter (2018)
  5. Crimson Peak (2015)
  6. The Cutting Edge (1992)
  7. Degrassi Goes Hollywood (2009)
  8. Disturbing Behavior (1998)
  9. Dog Day Afternoon (1975)
  10. Moses (1976)
  11. Empire of the Sharks (2017)
  12. House of the Witch (2017)
  13. The Phenix City Story (1955)

TV Shows I Watched

(I watched way too much TV this week.  I probably need to cut back on the true crime.)

  1. The 1980s: The Deadliest Decade
  2. The 23rd Annual Critics Choice Awards
  3. 48 Hours on ID
  4. 60 Days In
  5. The Amazing Race
  6. American Monster
  7. Ask the Undertaker — Is Ask The Undertaker strictly a Dallas show or do people watch it nation-wide?  I’ve recently become oddly addicted to this weekly talk show.  It’s sponsored by Golden Gates Funeral Home and I have to admit that one reason I watch this show is because I enjoy watching the professional Golden Gate pallbearers dance as they carry the coffin out to its final destination.
  8. The Bachelor 22
  9. Corrupt Crimes
  10. Deadly Women
  11. Evil Lives Here
  12. Forensic Files
  13. Ghost Whisperer
  14. Hell’s Kitchen 17
  15. Intervention
  16. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
  17. Jodi Arias: An American Murder Mystery
  18. Killer Mysteries
  19. King of the Hill
  20. The Magicians
  21. Murder Among Friends
  22. People Magazine Investigates
  23. The Perfect Murder
  24. Project Runway All-Stars — This season was apparently shot before Ronan Farrow’s expose of Harvey Weinstein was published.  As Project Runway is a Weinstein Company production and Harvey’s wife, Georgina Chapman, is one of the judges, watching this season feels more than a little awkward.
  25. Saved By The Bell
  26. See No Evil
  27. South Park
  28. Twin Peaks: The Return
  29. Undercover High
  30. Village of the Damned
  31. Web Of Lies
  32. The X-Files — For some reason, at least one reader got really worked up over my review this week.

Books I Read

  1. The Legend of Pope Joan (1998) by Peter Stanford
  2. Night of the Ripper by Robert Bloch (1984)
  3. Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier by Mark Frost (2017) — I’m glad I finally read this because it actually does answer a few of the questions left unanswered by the finale of Twin Peaks: The Return.  While it doesn’t shed much light on what was going on with Audrey, it does explain a bit more about what happened in New Mexico at the end of Part 8.
  4. Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann (1966)

Music I Listened To

  1. Alan Walker
  2. Andras Fox
  3. Arianna Grande
  4. Big Data
  5. Britney Spears
  6. Brooks
  7. The Chemical Brothers
  8. Crud
  9. Daft Punk
  10. Dream Wife
  11. Ed Sheeran
  12. Elle King
  13. Ellie Goulding
  14. Emanuele Braveri
  15. Fitz and the Tantrums
  16. Future
  17. Galantis
  18. Gwen Stefani
  19. Imhotep
  20. Jakalope
  21. Johnny Cash
  22. Joywave
  23. Kelly Clarkson
  24. Khrebto
  25. Kygo
  26. Leonard Cohen — Jeff has gotten me hooked on Leonard Cohen.
  27. Lindsey Stirling
  28. Lynn
  29. Martin Garrix

  36. Raja Kumari
  37. Rebecca Louise Burch
  38. Selena Gomez

  43. The Weeknd
  44. Whales
