OCTOBER 4 - 10, 2017 UCW 65 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE Question: I'm a big fan of "Bosch" on Amazon. Your quoting the line "I'll cut your strings and leave you drooling in a chair" in your Season 2 review led me here. Could you kindly tell me what that means, especially for "strings"? — MI Matt Roush: Can't say I'd ever heard this particular phrase before, either, but it struck me as one of those fanciful Cop- Speak warnings like we used to get from Sipowicz on "NYPD Blue" when Bochco, Milch & Co. were trying to find inven- tive ways around profanity limitations (which don't really exist on Amazon). Given that the line began, "You ever come near my family again ...," you have to believe that cutting one's "strings" would be beyond painful. (I'm thinking "strings" as "muscles-tendons" or some- thing possibly more intimate in nature. Whatever would leave you drooling and without the capacity for walking.) Question: Does Denis Leary have any- thing in the pipeline? I have enjoyed all the shows he was involved with. — GZ Matt Roush: Nothing for TV just yet, as far as I can tell, but Leary will be pub- lishing a book this fall: "Why We Don't Suck (And How All of Us Need to Stop Being Such Partisan Little Bitches)," a sequel to his 2008 tome, "Why We Suck." He'll be going on a performance/book tour this fall to promote the new volume. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Mr. Mercedes" for the smooth ride to the dark side. From a high-octane cast led by Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway to the bone-deep dread soaking each scene, Audience Network's layered, haunting take on Stephen King's tale of an ex- cop's hunt for a madman continues to drive us wild. Cheers to "To Tell the Truth" for keeping it in the family. As much as we love host Anthony Anderson, we cannot lie: e best thing about ABC's reboot is his mama Doris's hilariously honest asides as the show's scorekeeper. Jeers to the "Bachelor in Paradise" dudes for being dawgs. During the sea- son finale's reunion, it was revealed that Robby, Daniel and Dean all did wrong by the ladies they left paradise with, making us wonder if the free vacation is worth all the ugliness we saw from these hotties. NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Ewwwww! Forget the horrifying clown from "It." The newest inhabitant of your nightmares is a giant "fatberg" in the sewer system beneath the streets of London. A fatberg is created by a buildup of fat and grease combined with used diapers, sanitary napkins and wipes. This one is almost the length of three football fields and weighs more than 140 tons. Matt Rimmer with London's Thames Water said the current glob is "a total monster and is taking a lot of manpower and machinery to remove, as it's set hard." He said it's basically like trying to break up concrete. [Metro News, 9/12/2017] Wait, What? Entrepreneur Miki Argawal, 38, of Brooklyn, New York, was a hit at this year's Burning Man gathering in Nevada, where she pumped breast milk and offered it to fellow attendees to help with hangovers or use in lattes. She even tried some herself, saying it tasted a bit like coconut milk. She estimated that 30 to 40 people tried her milk. "The fact that any part of that could be seen as taboo ... it's time that conversation changes," Argawal said. [United Press International, 9/7/2017] Bright Ideas An unnamed man in Plymouth, Minnesota, went to extraordinary lengths and wasted two days of police investigators' time just to get a few days away from his wife, police Sgt. Keith Bird said. The woman reported her 34-year- old husband missing on Aug. 28 and showed police a text from him saying he had been kidnapped. The kidnapper demanded a paltry $140 for his return, and the wife agreed, but the kidnapper said she could wait for the husband to receive his paycheck. Eventually police caught up with the husband, who insisted he had indeed been kidnapped but asked officers to stop investigating. "He's fine," said Sgt. Bird. [Minneapolis Star-Tribune, 9/2/2017] Life Imitates TV An unnamed man in Plymouth, Paul J. Newman of Rensselaer, New York, was sentenced on Sept. 6 to 2 1/3 to seven years in prison after pretending to be a licensed and registered architect, after an investigation the New York attorney general's office dubbed "Operation Vandelay Industries" in a nod to "Seinfeld." Newman's charges included larceny, forgery, fraud and unlicensed practice of architecture. He will also have to pay more than $115,000 in restitution to his victims.
