It’s been a while since my last blog, and I think I figured out why. I write constantly. It’s just my thing, and always has been. It’s a stress reliever, a comfort, a necessity. Lately, I’ve been having a hard time with it, and it’s not just my blog that’s suffered. I can’t even focus … More Depression, Disneyland & the MCU.
After what happened on Friday, I’ve realized that I’m going to have to change the way I write posts. Until now, I was drafting in WordPress, trusting it to save as I went along. Mostly, that worked out well. Occasionally, there would be a problem, and I’d get a nice red notification at the … More Ergonomics: It’s not us, it’s you.
Am I the only person… *Spoilers for the latest episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Like many, I was waiting eagerly for the next episode of Legends because omfgzomg, Constantine! It would be nice (I’ve said this before) if they’d just get a fucking clue and bring him back somewhere on a regular basis, but hey … More Random Friday: Bad shipping, bad users, & bad machines.
Wednesday is the new Monday. I’ve been here for 15 years, and I’ve long since stopped fighting it. People just come to me with stuff they can’t figure out, because apparently they’re under the impression that I can figure anything out. Which isn’t the worst reputation to have, I’ll admit that, but it does … More One weird day
And the big news is… Red Dead Redemption 2 has been scheduled for release on October 26th. That’s much later in the year than most of us had hoped, but what are you going to do? March on Rockstar and demand an earlier release date? Wait… actually… Yeah, maybe not. According to Rockstar, it will … More Random Friday: RDR2, PUBG, & replayability
Conversations in the real world. Me: “What time does your plane leave?” Him: “In the morning.” Me: “Ok, let’s try this. What time do you need to leave the house?” Him: “I’ll still be here when you get up.” Me: “… But when do you have to leave?” Him: “After you get up.” Me: “… … More Random Friday: Imprecise communication, infosec, & hereditary paranoia.
Wayward Sisters: Ok, I’m just going to say it. *Spoilers if you aren’t all caught up on Supernatural. I don’t know how I missed this, but I literally didn’t hear a thing about the possible Supernatural spinoff until the day the episode aired. Luckily, it was all over Twitter, so I got up to speed … More Wayward Sisters, major errors & wishful thinking.
Years ago (actually, more like “decades ago”), friends and acquaintances of mine swarmed over a certain townhouse complex in the ‘burbs. It was cheap, and you got a ton of space for your buck. They were two- and three-bedroom townhomes with basements, so you could easily cram in anywhere from three to eight people, assuming … More Roaches, rage, & Harmonix Music VR
Statik Institute of Retention. Or, “That really messed-up place I woke up in.” Statik is a PSVR puzzle game that’s been out there a while. I’m still trying to cherry-pick my VR experiences, and this one came up at the top of a lot of lists. Statik explains nothing to you at the beginning, and … More Random Friday: Statik, shitholes & marital memory failures.
