🖖 #StarTrekDiscovery S02E07: Yay! No more Spock-teasing! Space squid are fun, and Tilly gets flustered around causality violations. Glad Pike at least mentioned Ash killing Culber. Still really unsure about Section 31, all the Spock stuff, and now time travel, but holding on.

Well, now I know who to blame for my dreary fashion sense: Beau Brummell (well, and discovering the goth community in my youth….). I break out of the drab-ness occasionally (my Pride kilt from Verillas, for example), but…yeah. Maybe I could do more. Need to ruminate on this.

Website (not blogging) Ennui

I’m not really happy with my website — I’m tired of WordPress, and ‘view source’ just makes me cringe at all the junk, cruft, and JavaScript bogging down what could and should be relatively simple, clean, HTML/CSS — but I don’t know how to reinvigorate it in a way I like. I don’t want to entirely […]

Unsolicited Mac app recommendation: I don’t have to use the command line very often, but when I do, I really enjoy using Cathode, a vintage terminal emulator. Scan lines! Green/amber (or whatever) screens! Curved CRTs! Fading scroll artifacts! It’s ridiculous and a lot of fun.

I’ve been thinking about moving away from WordPress for a while now, and I think I may have found my replacement backend: Grav. I’ve got a base install running. Next: play with settings and design, look for WordPress importers, external editor/microblog support options, etc.

Book twenty of 2019: Foundation and Empire, by Isaac Asimov. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1946 Retro Hugo Best Novel (for The Mule, part two of this book) 📚 Very much enjoying finally reading these (and surprised that it seems I never had, or had done so so long ago that I’d forgotten).

I don’t think I’ve seen any of Billy Porter’s work, don’t really know who he is, but that is one hell of an outfit, and I really like what he has to say about it.

Book nineteen of 2019: Foundation, by Isaac Asimov. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📚 Though I’m a big fan of Asimov’s short fiction, I don’t think I’d actually read this series, and I’m happy to see that (for the most part) Asimov’s writing doesn’t suffer as much as other works from this era do.

🖖 #StarTrekDiscovery S02E06: 90% strong episode, but that last 10%…I have serious concerns with the Discovery’s actions in this episode. Pike did far more than bend General Order 1. Sigh. Mixed feelings tonight. Oh, and (unsurprisingly) my theory about Saru was wrong after all.

(2/2) Or, presented in a slightly different format (that works well for this, but would take far too many pages for the full listing), my Star Trek library, sorted by ©/release date. 📚 🖖
