My introduction to Narkis and Claire Guerreso

I’ve been listening to two artists I hadn’t come across until recently. The first artist who’s new to me is an Israeli artist/band called Narkis. I head their song ״ממה אתה בורח״ (“What are you running from?”) in a Spotify playlist titled ״בדרך״ yesterday, and I’m obsessed: I went looking for a music video for […]

Spider-Man Loves You

I’m working with my team at a meetup in Lisbon, and really enjoying this track from the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack:

This is how you dress for a Star Wars convention

Robin Moul apparently made this awesome Star Wars dress, completed with hand lettering. It’s brilliant! The hair stick things (there’s probably a real name for them – I’m clueless) are a nice touch! Robin also posted a tweet of her in the dress at a Star Wars Celebration event: Hat tip to my ever vigilant […]

Sidewalk mosaic

The city adorned a path leading up to a local community center with a series of mosaics. I took a walk out there this morning, and took photos of them. One of the concrete panels is blank, which is a little odd. Hopefully that will also be filled at some point.

I enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie

We watched Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword today. I’ve been listening to Daniel Pemberton’s soundtrack for the last week or so, and was looking forward to watching the movie. The movie didn’t do well at the Box Office, and a series of sequels was scrapped. That’s a big pity. I really enjoyed […]

How hard could it be to setup a Minecraft server?

My son and his friends are getting back into Minecraft, and they’ve been playing on some random server that they have some issues with. I gave it some thought, and decided that I could set up a Minecraft server for them on a Digital Ocean. I mean, how hard could this be, right? It turns […]

Today’s alternative to my usual run

I finally took some time to get outside, and exercise for the first time in about a week. I was going to do my usual run (it’s effective but I don’t particularly like it) when my daughter asked me to take her to the park. I was about to say “No”, and that I wouldn’t […]

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the best movies I’ve seen

We finally watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and it’s comfortably one of the best movies I’ve seen. The story is compelling, the animation is brilliantly done. It’s just an incredible movie. If you haven’t seen it, and you’re curious, it’s well worth watching. This movie was the first of two movies we have planned for […]
