Miscellaneous speculations and cogitations from an armchair philosophist.
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.
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 rdsm.ca/d8

Normally I hate Lets Plays, but someone linked this one on Hacker News and I found it pretty funny rdsm.ca/d6
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. rdsm.ca/d5

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 rdsm.ca/d2
Rewatching The Pyramid, high budget found footage film that I remember desperately wanting to like.
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?
