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!

Starting on season 3 of Homeland. Pretty good so far. Not sure where they're going to take it from here though. Felt like the end os season 2 could have been a good place to end it.

I feel like trying to keep up with political news right now is slowly poisoning me. I've got to stop this.

I have released a new episode of my now two-episode Norfolk Winters podcast. It's a Lovcraft-inspired sci-fi tale that I actually wrote probably a year or two ago, and just never got around to editing. It's called Far Reaches

It feels like even when I listen to one of my politics podcasts that was released the previous evening, everything is already so out of date.

Rewatching The Pyramid, high budget found footage film that I remember desperately wanting to like.

Today I'm making a mental commitment to myself to start doing something that I've really wanted to do for a long time with regards to my writing. Look forward to early fruits of my labor in a couple weeks or so.

I wish there were more hours in the day. For nap purposes.

The hearing on the travel ban was great to listen to. I love the @nytimes live commentary streams. I urge anyone who values freedom of the press to pick a news organization and support them with a subscription. The NY Times, Wash Po, Slate Plus, The Young Turks... It's never been more important to support the press as it is now with the constant assault and attempts at delegitimization coming straight from the damn White House.

I've noticed several instances now where @realDonaldTrump has deleted tweets (usually incendiary ones that bash media outlets like the @nytimes). Is there any site that's keeping an archive of every tweet he puts out regardless of whether it's later deleted or not?
