Miscellaneous speculations and cogitations from an armchair philosophist.

I was already enjoying Dark Matter on Netflix, then @WilWheaton showed up and took that shit to the next level.

Started using to time my cube solves. Got my first sub 3 minutes. Pathetic, but I hope to improve with time and practice.

Comcast keeps cutting out in my area. Might be time to switch to one of the many available competitors. Oh, wai

Mass Effect Andromeda gets a ton of shit (and not undeservedly so) for it's crappy animations... but the game is really damn good. I haven't been this sucked into a game since Witcher III. Also I'm totally in love with Vetra.

I'm seriously considering getting a PS4 just for Horizon Zero Dawn. Touché, Sony.

New sweet blog post over at The Code Word

Spent a few minutes and removed all external cdn dependencies from The Code Word and Norfolk Winters. I respect your privacy too darn much to subject you to downloading fonts from Google's servers.

Seasons 1 and 2 of #StarTrek TNG I'd already seen every episode more than once. First two episodes of season 3 so far are new to me. Insanity. What the hell is going on? I would have never guessed there were episodes of TNG that I've never seen. Not complaining at all, just shocked.

Did a little reminiscing over on The Code Word this evening about that time I trolled the entire internet

Watching a bit of #StarTrek TNG on the remastered blu-rays. Like hanging out with old childhood friends. This show was such a massive part of my life.

I have been working on a new story for #NorfolkWinters, but it's turning out much longer than I had anticipated. I may need to break it up into multiple parts or something.

So it turns out my kids bought over $200 worth of Roblox in-game currency on the Xbox over the past week. I only just noticed all of the email receipts today. Let's just say they won't be playing that fucking game again any time soon.

1. Purchased Skyrim disc for 360.

2. Lost disc during move, purchased digital version for 360 to continue playing.

3. 360 save game ended up in a state in which one achievement was broken (important npc was killed early on without me knowing it). Bought PC version so I could import my save game, revive npc via console, then copy back over to 360 to continue my goal of 100% achievements.

4. Seriously considering buying remastered version for Xbox One.

At what point should I be seeking help for my Skyrim addiction?

It's hard for me to get too excited after the hot mess that was Prometheus, but the prologue to Alien: Covenant is actually not too bad

My kids surrounded by some of the Nashville Predators cheerleaders

Normally I hate Lets Plays, but someone linked this one on Hacker News and I found it pretty funny

Wow, I had no idea they turned Frequency into a TV series. The original movie was really great, might have to give this a chance.

Made a quick little update to #asublog, I now have an RSS feed. Ooh, shiny!
