10 miles into our 1200 mile trip and we’re stopping at Dahlia’s for breakfast, because kids. This is how you make good time on a road trip right?

Installed some smart light switches, paired them with some motion sensors, and I’ve got some HomeKit automation going on. I really like it so far.

Back in line at the DPS to replace my stolen driver’s license. I did not think I would encounter my enemy again so soon.

Point of order. I automatically hate any social media post where every word is punctuated by a handclap emoji, no matter what it says.

Wrapped our week of filming refugee interviews in Paris and Frankfurt. It has been exhausting, saddening, and occasionallly inspiring.

Last morning in Paris went great. Now I’m back in Frankfurt ready for some more interviews tomorrow and the next day.

Day 3 of Paris refugee/volunteer interviews in the bag. These people are tough, but they are good.

Today in Paris was a day full of video shoots and interviews. Volunteers who distribute goods to refugees living on the streets, and several refugees who have left their homes behind. I feel drained, but ready for more tomorrow.

Watched Star Trek Discovery. It’s fun and I’m excited to see where it goes, although CBS All Access seems like a terrible value for a single show. Might cancel and wait for it to hit iTunes or something.

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

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.
