Can anyone explain to me why on earth the A-Team theme song is stuck in my head? It's been at least fifteen years since I've even seen the A-Team; why is my brain convinced that playing the theme on infinite loop is now priority #1?

An issue of Gnosis Magazine themed on "Pop Culture & the Esoteric" from the Summer of 1994 is sitting at this coffee shop so of course I picked it up to peruse. I found this article written by a guy who'd been using the internet from 1982-1994 and his conclusion is it won't expand human consciousness to a higher level, or even result in meaningful dialogue. Note that the World Wide Web was so young it didn't even get mentioned in the glossary at the end. (W3C would be founded ~3 months later!)

The Ys II Soundtrack has a song called "Apathetic Story" that I'm fairly sure was supposed to be titled "A Pathetic Story". What a difference a space makes. 🎼

The Most Beautiful Song in the World

The most beautiful song ever recorded is a simple, unassuming tune. Quiet, dulcet, soothing rather than rousing, it’s a piece of music that gently moves you toward sleep, instead of to a fever pitch of emotion. Everyone who has ever heard it has come away feeling refreshed and healed.

The song was written by a musici

Three inches of new, wet snow on the ground today. This is the kind of day I’m really glad I just get on the train and let someone else worry about dealing with this weather. 🚈

“A Novelist In Business School”, is a series about putting my literary arts brain through formal management training.

I’ve always thought of myself on being an excellent learner, and staying curious all my life. But my innate curiosity doesn’t have a lot of bearing on formal education, because on my own I can be

Hey, hi!
I created a bot to post my new stories on my Monday Stories blog.

Okay, I think I've finally nailed down my algorithm for determining if it's warm enough to eat lunch outside:
1. Can liquid water exist?
2. What about in direct sunlight?
3. What if it's like, in a black bowl, in direct sunlight?

if any of the answers are yes-like, I'll eat outside. If they're all no I'll think about eating in the breakroom, then go eat somewhere else instead.

I love that we've reached a point in the world's history where any random person can stick a cheap karaoke mic in their cat's face and we all get to experience the joy.

I'm not sure how old this makes me, but I'm deriving considerable joy from this nice warm pair of wool socks.

2019 so far: my 3 year old is vehemently denying the existence of turtles. Staying up to midnight might have been a bad idea.

Take a moment at the end of each day and list a few good things in your life. This can help refocus your emotions on all the positive things that happen each day, even when it doesn’t seem like it.

Installed six light fixtures this morning. Five to go. Hopefully this will make it so I don’t have to buy light bulbs ever again in this house.

Playing “Return of the Obra Dinn” is like playing Clue, except in this version everyone killed everyone everywhere with everything.

Not sure why I thought "working one day between Christmas and New Year's Eve" was a good idea. How can one day be so dang long?
