The opening for Ken Burn’s The Vietnam War is gripping. Great use of music, Reznor is a great pic to work on this.

If you find yourself in Houston after a day of disaster cleanup and are wondering what a good followup meal would be, the answer is fajitas. The answer to many things is fajitas, btw.

Studying for a test these days and when I ask my wife, who minored in math, for help with some math stuff. Her response after looking it over, “Don’t know what this is, but it’s not math.” :/

Heard the news about SW IX director. After seeing how Disney handled Rogue One’s director and the results I’m optimistic. They seem to be good stewards, with the humility to make changes when necessary.

Watched Wonder Woman last night. Amazing movie, the most sincere/earnest superhero movie I’ve seen, and definitely one of the best. Can’t wait until my daughter grows a bit and is not scared of monsters in movies to show her. My son too, for that matter.

Recently switched from Amazon Cloud Drive to Backblaze B2 for my backups. It seems that unlimited storage has proven to be a short term customer acquisition strategy for anyone who’s tried it, so I’d rather just switch to paying for a cheap per/GB service.

Excited for a non-DCEU Batman with Matt Reeves at the helm. There’s more character in his CG apes than the post-Nolan DC films.

Watched Defenders. Don’t have much to say except it’s full of dour characters and bad dialogue. Dark superheroes are interesting in movie length treatments, but oppressive in 8 hours of TV.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. Loved it, slower than vol. 1 in the middle, but overall really great. One of my favorite things has to be all the colors. So fun.
