Latest projects- Update

You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t written a blog in almost two months. That wasn’t really by design, it just happened. The reason why isn’t at all interesting: Life happens and it just takes you away from things. This doesn’t mean that I am gone forever, not at all, as I… Read more »

This is what it sounds like, when Tek’s cry: Subsurface Circular

How not to make coffee

If there is one thing I cannot stand, it’s a bad cup of coffee.

Blade Runner 2049 trailer #2

Hoarding and zombie beer: How big beer is trying to strong-arm its way to victory

Beer is probably one of the most refreshing drinks to have on a hot night. Cold, crisp, it’s ancient recipe perfected through the generations as each round of humanity takes a shot at making the nectar of the gods.

Was the drought really that bad?

Winter was wonderful as water fell from the sky in California.

    What is this? Well, to be literal, it’s a tracking of R-robot’s journey though a world. This world isn’t ours, but another place full of adventure and bizzaro locals and people.

  • Why Doughnuts Are Awesome

    I had this very clever article and I wrote it three times and I said, “You know what, this sucks, and I am going to talk about doughnuts instead because I am an adult and I fucking love doughnuts.” Is there anything that is more precisely perfect than a well made doughnut? The answer is… Read more »
