Self Reflection with the help of Podcasts

I listened to three podcast episodes recently that I thought were really good at sparking a line of thought for self reflection and/or improvement.  Two of them were from the same podcast, the third was a different one.   Overthinking It – Episode 531 – You Are Not Worse Than You Are and Episode 532 […]

Daily Random Podcast

I’m working on a slightly longer blog entry about podcasts (that seems to be a recurring theme, lately) but for now wanted to share something fun I whipped together.   Over on /r/podcasts (reddit) there was some demand for showcasing a random podcast each day from the weekly link sharing thread; it would be next to […]

Some Observations of My Organizational Habits

Last week there was a bit of a kerfuffle on the /r/bujo subreddit – basically that subreddit was created to embrace minimalism in bullet journalling, to counter-act the extremely popular “artsy” entries that people are sharing these days.  The issue was that the art crowd was filtering into /r/bujo (probably because they picked the wrong […]

Health Notes + Quick Dailyio Review

I’ve not seen very much progress in the weight loss department over the last 90 days.  My numbers have pretty much fluctuated up and down, meaning I’m more or less maintaining my weight rather than losing.  That’s fine, it’s definitely better than gaining.   I know the reason for this too – I’ve not been properly […]

Crazy Rich Asians – Review

Vanessa and I saw this movie last Saturday – we both decided that based on the previews, it looked like a fun film and it was going to be funny.  Before I go on, I’ll confirm that yes, it WAS a good film, and it WAS funny.  We loved it.   Online Backlash One of the […]

Interesting Podcasts

I can’t remember the last time I did one of these, so that must mean it’s time to write one!   Originally I was going to dedicate an entire post to Make Dad Read Comics; I would still like to do that, but I’m still feeling a little conflicted because I don’t want to draw too […]

The Microsoft Surface 3

Why am I writing this here?  I honestly can’t tell you what compelled me to start writing about this tablet that I’ve had for maybe…a year and a half?  A tablet that I bought second-hand, without fully realizing what it was that I bought.   The Surface 3 (and I’ll spare you from having to look […]

Huzzah!

So…my website broke Tuesday afternoon, completely my doing.  It’s fixed now (I’m typing, you’re reading – in theory!).  But I was using a plugin to re-direct HTTP requests to HTTPS, and I didn’t have proper security set up…long story short, I broke the website. In the process of trying to fix things I also deleted […]

Is It Star Trek? Fandom and Gatekeeping

Is discounting a piece of the Trek franchise for not following in the direct footsteps of TOS tantamount to gatekeeping? That’s a question that immediately popped into my head when I saw a podcast title from Mission Log, “But, Is It Star Trek?”.  I find Mission Log (and similar podcasts) extremely entertaining to listen to, […]
