On My Radar

Happy, Happy, Happy Friday!

I’ve had a great week so far. I’m heading to the Giants vs LA Dodger game tonight and then to Monterrey tomorrow morning to pick up my bib for the Big Sur International Marathon. I’m really looking forward to spending this weekend in great weather and running next to a fantastic view.


Here’s what been on my radar this week:

ONE // Avengers: Infinity War Cast Sings The Marvel Bunch

The cast of Avengers: Infinity War assemble for epic Marvel-themed Brady Bunch parody and it’s fantastic!

TWO // Why Men Quit and Women Don’t

This is (in my opinion) a great piece by the Times. I enjoyed reading the authors theories on why women were so much better at enduring at this years Boston Marathon. If you get a chance read the comments too, I found it very entertaining. So many different but great opinions.

THREE // Mamma Mia! ABBA is getting the band back together.

After unofficially splitting in 1982, ABBA, peak ’70s quad, is getting back together—and releasing two new songs. In 2016, it was announced that Simon Fuller from American Idol was working on a virtual ABBA experience –  hyper-realistic digital humans based on the group from the ’70s (I’m thinking like holograms). The group will debut the song “I Still Have Faith in You,” in December on ABC and NBC.

FOUR // Groom Paralyzed Playing Football Walks Down The Aisle

Against all odds in life, Chris Norton was determined to walk the most important yardage in his life. After a tackle on the college football field, he was told he only had a 3% chance at moving anything from the neck down. However with consistent grit, he retrained his body to walk that seven yards down the aisle with his bride.

FIVE // Golden State Killer 

If you love crime, you’ll love this! The Golden State Killer, for those who haven’t heard of him, is serial killer, rapist, and burglar who committed 50 rapes in Northern California during the mid-1970s and murdered twelve people in Southern California from 1979 through 1986.

Earlier this week Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested and it was an online genealogy database that crack the case. There’s a lot of speculation going around now because people are considering this to be an invasion of privacy…

For those interested in the case The New York Times wrote a really interesting piece about Michelle McNamara’s book “I’ll Be Gone In the Dark”. In her book she was hoping to identify the Golden State Killer. It’s already sold around 150,000 copies and we’ll soon see it on HBO who is adapting it into a documentary series.
