I deleted my Facebook before it was cool. #DeleteFacebookHipster

Just played through Doki Doki Literature Club... wasn't really sure what to expect. Pretty great, totally get what all the fuss is about.

I haven't written enough lately. Lately being the last several years. I keep filling all my time with tech projects, but I do enough of that at work already. How do I stop? On a related note, I spun up an Old Time Radio Android app and service called Radiostasis at which is my latest time-sink-du-jour.

Total eclipse 2017 was pretty damn cool. Cloud cover was annoying, but we had a clear view of the first 10-15 seconds of totality where we were, so that was lucky. Got as dark as night and several degrees cooler for about a minute and a half.

All I really want in life anymore is a copy of Willow on blu ray. Is that really so much to ask?

This is just a test. Nothing to see here, folks.

Best Wesley Snipes line ever: "Simon says die!" from Demolition Man (1993).

Stayed up too late. Then again, a couple more hours and I'll be able to watch the next @realDonaldTrump tweetstorm as it's happening #politics

I'm starting to feel the writer's itch. I wish there were more hours in the day.

I have been trying out alternate day fasting for few weeks now, and am pretty happy with the results so far. This feels like it will be much easier to stick to long-term than calorie counting every day.

Watched 13 Reasons Why on Netflix. It was a well made show, but I don't get what the message was supposed to be. Feels almost like it's promoting suicide as a legitimate solution to your problems and a way to get even with people who you feel wronged you in some way. Left me feeling very unsatisfied. Maybe that was the point, but I think they were trying for something else and just missed the mark in a huge way.


Rudis Muiznieks 5/17/2017 6:55:32 PM I am going to try real hard not to get excited and overly-hyped about this. Too late, oh well.

I am so glad I managed to avoid spoilers before finally watching Split. Glorious. That almost made up for The Happening. Almost.

I really need to stop thumbs-upping Pandora songs when I'm only half awake because I went to bed with my headphones on. Some of these songs are embarrassing.

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.
