First time at Disneyland in ages. Birthday weekend for the kiddo!

 

A little over half way through season two of The White Lotus, and it feels a lot darker to me than season one.

 

Back to pondering if Pat Rothfuss is ever going to finish book three of the Kingkiller Chronicle…

 

This week I was suspended from Instagram (which I no longer post to, but still have an account to follow friends) for using an Insta-to-RSS plugin. Now, they’re letting the insurrectionist ex-POTUS back. Facebook gonna Facebook, y’all.

 

In The Year of our Lord 2023, I am thinking about buying an NVIDIA Shield Pro that was last updated in 2019. The state of streaming media players for home theater geeks? Not good, folks.

 

Today I had my normal two cups of self-brewed coffee in the morning and then a third from my favorite coffee shop in the early afternoon. I’m vibrating. Is that bad?

 

I see people defending hateful views by using religion as a crutch. Does your religion *really* require you to question the identity of the entire LGBTQ+ community? Find out for sure. If you conclude that the answer is “yes,” perhaps consider what that implies about your religion.

 

Just finished “The Batman,” and I won’t say it was the worst Batman movie of all time, but it was pretty bad. Yikes.

 

YouTube’s algorithm decided to put a toxic “men’s rights” video in front of my nine year old boy. Thankfully, he sent it to me and we had an opportunity to talk about it together. Still, I’m sad that it happened at all, and worse, that there isn’t a way to prevent it other than taking away YouTube.

 

Watched “Everything Everywhere All At Once” last night. I had high expectations that were not met. It was fine, and at moments very funny, but I found the message to be incredibly off-putting.

 

Watched the first episode of The Last of Us last night in the home theater and really enjoyed it. Pedro Pascal is spot on as Joel. Still not sold on Bella Ramsey as Ellie, but there wasn’t much opportunity to shine yet.

 

Finished Spider-Man: Miles Morales on my . Good game. Not as good as Spider-Man Remastered, though. A lot less content, and the first one had so many big baddies to fight. Still recommended!

 

I am using a Shortcut to post via to my website, which automatically syndicates to Mastodon. I wish I read, post, reply, and interact from a single app.

 

Fuck the TSA now and forever.

 

Happy Apple is bringing back a full-size HomePod. That said, it doesn’t seem like they learned much from the first one. Price is still too high. No inputs. Wouldn’t be surprised if it suffers the same fate.

 

Finished the first season of The White Lotus last night. Such a unique show. No heroes, just fleeting moments of authentic joy. No villains, just the constant reminder of imperialism and classism.

 

I’d like to find a new calendar app for macOS and iOS. I have been using Fantastical for years now, but it doesn’t really fit my brain anymore, and the subscription price is really high. Any recommended alternatives? I need both iCloud and Google Calendar integration.

 

Someone should create a service that enables people to establish and retain an identity in the Fediverse. Its great that you can move from instance-to-instance on Mastodon, with redirection, but it would be better if the instance that a user was on was largely irrelevant.

You should be “@ user @ your domain” and seamlessly be able to change backend instances.

 

Hot Fuzz is an all-time great. Movie masterpiece.

 

I’d love to see TCU win tonight. Even more, I’d love to see Georgia lose.

That said, I think Georgia will run away with it. Would love to be wrong!
