The costuming decisions for some of the Russian characters in Snuff Bottle Connection are baffling.

Annalee Newitz's "Autonomous" is pretty good so far! Some elements of it remind me of Bruce Sterling's late '90s/early '00s stuff.

Here's my 17-year-old cat happily nibbling on pizza crust. I love this old gal.

Pretty stoked about Joe Bob Briggs' upcoming Friday night double features on Shudder, going to New Mexico and maybe Taiwan later this year, new volunteers at the animal shelter, and the latest records I picked up at Vinal Edge.

I have improved my studying. That was not satisfying.

RIP Teotónio R. de Souza, a fine and influential scholar of Goa and its history.

Just had a fit of inspiration that led to me writing it all on a mirror, a la Cameron from Halt and Catch Fire. I used a dry erase marker instead of lipstick, though.

After a spirited sci-fi book club meeting about Zardoz (which I hadn't seen in 20 years, and liked more than I reckoned I would), it's time for a 中華香煙 and a dram of Ardbeg Uigeadail.

Viva sci-fi book club!

The riffage during the first few minutes of Wheels Within Wheels' "Your Body, Your Blood" is utterly perfect, and what it develops into is no less amazing for its sonic approximation of our coming collapse.

Huh. My SDF website is unreachable. Checking out the SDF bulletin board, it seems other freeshell.org pages are (or were) having the same problem, but no solution or explanation has been posted.

I really like Marc Kate's work on the "Scary Thoughts" podcast, and his conversation with the perennially excellent Erik Davis about his album Deface was fascinating, so I feel kinda bad I've only just now gotten around to listening to his music. It's even better than I expected.

My only cassette player these days is a shitty old boombox, but seeing as how Cathedral is one of my favorite bands ever, there was no way I was passing these up (especially since the Malignant Altar demo tapes were already sold out).

醉如泥, literally "drunk as mud", or dead drunk. Thanks for teaching me this, 李白.

Going to do some write-ups tonight for some some BBSes. Still a long way to go, and I'm still just on the 'A's!

I hope by doing this I can expose the wider world to BBSes once again and help Sysops to grow their communities(If they want it grown, that is).

I think BBSes are still a valid form of community. We should embrace them again. Tildes, BBSes, IRC, Matrix, Tox etc should pave the way towards a new future.
