Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

I have only not nice things to say about a lot of things.

I have decided to retool my weekly reviews into a format that covers the five senses (loosely) and list a thing that I did this week that falls under that category. Basically, a true week in review of stuff and things that actually happened. It is still going to be a free form stream of consciousness, but with a bit more structure. It is still not going to fall on a specific day, I will just wait for a day without birthdays to celebrate.

WATCHING:

Channel Zero: Candle CoveThe show centers on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s called Candle Cove, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.

If you like Twin Peaks, Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, The X Files, and American Horror Story, you will love this. I can’t even mention anything about it.

LISTENING:

My Favorite MurderReady yourself for a murder adventure hosted by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, two lifelong fans of true crime stories. Each episode the girls tell each other their favorite tales of murder, and hear hometown crime stories from friends and fans. Check your anxiety at the door, ’cause Karen & Georgia are dying to discuss death.

If you like Forensic Files, America’s Most Wanted, 48 Hours and everything else on Investigation Discovery (even a little Lifetime Movie Network). If you are obsessed with true crime stories, this podcast is right in your messed up wheelhouse.

SMELLING:

Tom Ford Noir ExtremeThe amber-drenched, woody oriental fragrance has a tantalizing and delectable heart, capturing the aspect of the man that relishes immoderation and dares to be extraordinary.

I am not sure if I relish immoderation, I do know that I am a fan of fragrances that contain amber, neroli, and sandalwood.

TASTING:

Beef Bowl at Super Six, Columbia City, Seattle – Sliced beef, mushrooms, green beans, cucumber, soy, sesame, slaw, rice.

I am not a foodie whatsoever. I would be happy eating the exact same meal every day (and I do for lunch). That said, I have been thinking about this dish since I had it last week at Super Six in Columbia City.

TOUCHING:

Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol TreatmentA potent and uniquely formulated retinol solution that hydrates and delivers remarkable anti-aging benefits with a controlled-release delivery system to allow for even, consistent absorption.

As the weather turns darker and grayer, it is the best time to undo any of that damage you did in the summer. I have found that this retinol works the best. They probably suggest a once-a-week usage, which is wise (for civilians). I suggest you apply some sort of cream around your eyes before applying the retinol, I have been using pure organic coconut oil. It will keep the retinol from getting on the delicate eye area. Then in the morning, moisturize and apply sunblock. Yes, sunblock in the dead of winter.
