A Guide to Binging Star Trek: The Next Generation Season One

For a long time, I’ve wanted to write an episode-by-episode guide to every Star Trek series out there, with the exception of Discovery, because I haven’t seen that one yet. (And at this point, I don’t plan to, although that could change.) Then I read Max Temkin’s article on how to watch Star Trek: Deep Space Nine …read more…

today is Sunday, January 12, 2020

This was my second Sunday waking up in the new apartment, but it was the first when I didn’t have to get up and finish moving stuff out of the old apartment. I wanted a bit of a lie-in, but I was awake at five in the morning. I did what any normal person would …read more…

Beans have ensued. Lots and lots of beans.

My life…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more accurate depiction of my life right now.

Recipe Journals

I’m not quite sure how to describe this… A while back, I used to spend a lot of time visiting my parents on the weekends. My mother mostly spent the weekend either gardening or watching television, depending on the weather. I love working in a garden, but television bores me. So on rainy weekends, I …read more…

Getting things done…

I’m surrounded by paper, because I’m a writer who happens to prefer writing first drafts longhand (and with a pencil, at that!). I’m also a bit of a scribbler. I’ve become aware lately that I’ve started more projects than I’ve finished. I need to re-establish my habit of completion. I’ve also wanted to pare down …read more…

A few thoughts on the dumpster fire that is capitalism…

Just got some things I’m going to leave right here. Enjoy your Saturday!  

A New CDN Server (Also, How Not to Run a Business)

Wait, that’s not quite the story I want to tell. The story I want to tell is that a long time ago, I decided to have my own website, and not long thereafter, I decided to do a podcast or two, mainly to see if I could. (It turned out that I could.) Uh-oh. The …read more…

I Will Always Love You

One of my favorite songs, written by Dolly Parton. Here’s her version: I apologize for the poor sound quality, but that’s an old television clip. Most people are aware of Whitney Houston’s version, which is one of the first times I’ve ever preferred a cover to the original, but what I did not know is …read more…

Notes for Young Pioneers

Because of $reasons, I have a lot of young people in my life right now who are taking their first steps into the bigger, adult world. A handful of them have asked me for various bits of advice, and because I like to write and also because I hate repeating myself (there are more efficient …read more…
