Friday Five: The “R” Edition

1. Read: Aaron Burch, How To

2. Reminisce & RIP: John Hughes, The Formative Years. In Memoriam, a giveaway: The Too Cool For School John Hughes Collection. Leave a comment about which Breakfast Club character you like best and why. Winner will be chosen randomly at the end of the day!

3. Rejoice: Ice Creams Around the World (via the Rumpus)

4.Repent: Actually, I just wanted to throw that in there because the word repent is a fine fine word. It starts off quite mildly but then rises into a hard hissed”p” and after that comes the hellfire and brimstone of the “ent”. If there isn’t spittle involved, if you aren’t a little flushed and sweaty, if your heart isn’t beating a lot faster after the utterance of the word, you’re doing it wrong.

5. Return: Monday, for an excellent interview with Jensen Whelan, Hobart (Web) editor.
