WEEK 12 PICKS: A WEEK SO SPARSE WE ARE MOVED TO HAIKU

New, 52 comments

This week's crop of picks covers a week so sparse and uninviting lichen might turn its most noselike organelles up at it. Thus, we return to the quiet, spare austerity of Japan's ancient poetry form, the haiku, to express our emotions regarding week 12's slate...which is mostly, like the majority of haiku, about staring at not much happening whatsover.

Vols' clean record was
Looking almost Vandy-esque
