Hey, you!

Yeah, you. The one reading this.

You're pretty cool!

Anyway. Just wanted to say that. Later!

I don't have anything to say that hasn't already been said and better.

Donate if you can.
Speak out.

I would rather watch Tron: Legacy than any Star Wars movie that came out after 2010.

I would rather watch the original Tron than any Star Wars movie that came out after 1990.

Spoilers: The Good Place Season Finale, and some Doctor Who 

Finally watched the series finale of “The Good Place”. It was a good kind of sad, in that it made me ugly cry but feel a little better afterwards.

The last show to do that to me was when the 12th Doctor regenerated. :tardis:

I love the honey locust tree in my front yard eleven months out of the year. It’s beautiful, spacious, graceful, and shades enough ground that it’s almost like having an extra room.

Unfortunately it’s a male honey locust, so one month a year it creates enough pollen to pollinate every other honey locust in existence. And also my poor insane sinuses.

Just in case you were wondering, it’s totally possible to drive a 1999 Suburban 90 miles an hour for four hours with seven people inside and 90 pounds of bedding lashed to the roof. No this isn’t a math problem.

Why do we put most currency symbols before the number, like $𝟓.𝟗𝟗, but the cent symbol after the number, like 𝟗𝟗¢?

TFW your crush from high school calls you a handsome guy on social media...twenty five years after you graduate, 22 years after you've seen each other in person, and you've both been married for > 15 years.

Honestly? It's just nice. Surprisingly angst-free. Am...am I finally growing up???

Eye Contact 

Like so many other uncreative middle-age dudes I've been letting my hair grow long while in quarantine. Which means I actually have to deal with it.

My current favorite thing to do is just comb it straight back. It's comfortable and out of the way. The only problem is that I look like I'm planning on eating your entire family.

Foodposting 

Homemade from scratch, gluten-free pizza crust. It turned out pretty good! We're starting to figure this whole Celiac Disease thing out.

i just wrote a post about meeting one of my heroes...twenty four years ago.

Better late than never, I guess.

If you haven't played Hypnospace Outlaw and were online at all during the late 90's/early 2000's, you need to play it.

It's a short game, but well crafted, and I find myself thinking about it all the time. It made a lot of good points about early internet culture in a simple and charming way.

If you can't play it, at least enjoy the awesome cover art for Parts 1 & 2 of the OST.

The weather locally is at that perfect magical point where we can turn off heating and cooling and just leave the windows open. It was freezing last week, it'll be too hot...probably tomorrow, but for now it's perfect.

Rimworld and Rimworld Royalty soundtracks are EXCELLENT music for when you need to focus on thought-heavy tasks and also block out local noises. Which makes sense, since that's most of what the game is about.

For the past month or so I’ve had a standing early morning online game appointment with my friend. I slept through it this morning and the whole day has been just a little bit less good.

Friendship is powerful, y’all.
