Papa will have to go buy and build one. This one’s mine!

If you’re on Goodreads, my review of Kendi is there. Friend me! If not, let me know and I can share alternatively. It’s not a very in-depth review. Not like the ones I wrote for Geeks Of Doom. As to reading time, yeah, I hear ya. If I didn’t go for the occasional walk, I’d never get any reading done. It’s truly sad. And my Podcast listening? Let’s not even go there. But feel free to join up with Foundation. It’s very informal. Just trying to get them done before the show comes out next year.

This video was all Nathan’s idea. He wanted to do a full LEGO set build in time lapse. Of course it had to be the set I got for Father’s Day meaning that my set build got delayed to whenever... Continue reading

Nah. Trying to keep it as informal as possible so people want to keep up with it. Unless you’ve got a widget we can plug in on the sidebar here.

Happy 244th birthday, U.S.A. I know you have a lot of issues, lots of fresh wounds and tough scars. You’re undergoing a troubled today and finally starting to fess up to an horrifically ugly yesterday. But I still love ya.... Continue reading

So you remember that issue I mentioned I've been having with comments disappearing from my site as reported to me by one of you? I reported it to Typepad like I said I would and they got back to me... Continue reading

I just discovered a day or two ago that Amazing Stories exists. Gotta see if my wife would be interested.

Can you safely read the core three books from 1951-53 without needing backstory from other books?

Four out of seven of the books were about 30+ years after the core three books. You want in?

I’m hoping this is that peer pressure some of us need. I’ve got a few coworkers in for the challenge, too. We’re starting with just book the first to see what we think.

I just wrapped up reading Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's How to Be an Anti-Racist (review forthcoming) and I'm trying to figure out what my next audiobook will be. I feel a need to go the fiction route and, after watching... Continue reading

Time keeps on slippin' (slippin' slippin') into the future. Hmm, that would make for a great chorus to a song. I should write that down. In the meantime, how about a review of my goals in June. 1. Blog Play:... Continue reading

When Nathan invited Katie to watch TV with him in his bedroom, I was told to hang out as his bed isn’t really big enough for all three of us. I could’ve read a book. I could’ve watched a TV... Continue reading

That fact still impressed me. I didn’t know if non-smartphones still worked on modern networks.

And, just like that, half the year is gone in a flash! Damn. Anyway, lots of people correctly guessed last week’s #MiniMusicMonday Challenge Photo but my old college buddy Harley was the first. So congrats to him! If you don’t... Continue reading

Funny you ask because I’ve actually watched less on Apple TV + than you. We still have to finish The Morning Show and I haven’t jumped into For All Mankind yet. And, to be honest, I’m not sure we’ve used it for anything else at all. But I can pretty much guarantee I’ll be watching Isaac Asimov’s Foundation next year when it comes out. Long time to wait, though.

The effects are what make it so great, they’re so minimal. By necessity, they showed the shark as little as humanly possible and that wound up making it better. But, yes, when you actually see the shark, it can be a little cheesy. But I’ll take it over how poorly modern FX and CG have aged.

Agreed. And while I was getting excited about Disqus as a potential option, losing all that would suck. Especially if, once I export from Typepad to Disqus, I no longer have the old ones on Typepad. Be it a backup or whatnot. I guess I could just keep my exported file.

Back in January, Kevin Spencer reported to me that the comment form for my blog wouldn't render on his mobile device. He couldn't even leave a comment. I contacted Typepad and they suggested I revert to an older version of... Continue reading

45 years ago today saw the release of one of my favorite films of all time. One of those movies that truly affected my life, be it for better or for worse. That movie is Jaws. And, while 45 years... Continue reading

Yes, Apple TV+, I will watch Greyhound when it comes out on July 10! Really, I promise! Hey, it’s Tom Hanks, Elisabeth Shue, WWII, and submarines. How could I not watch it?? Now will you please stop forcing me to... Continue reading
