  • What I'm Watching: Undercover, L4yer Cake, Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

    What I'm Watching: Undercover, L4yer Cake, Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

    Undercover S1: A Belgian/Dutch crime drama, based very loosely on a real case, with Anna Drijver as a Dutch woman cop (and rather sexy when she cleans up, or if you like dirty biker chicks), and Tom Waes as a Belgian asshole man cop, setting up an undercover observation of a drug kingpin. Except the … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Undercover, L4yer Cake, Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse"Read More »

    What I'm Watching: Mindhunter S2

    Based on the book by FBI agent John E. Douglas — the character Holden Ford is based on him — S1 set up a format of serial killer interviews interspersed with a little too much personal drama in Holden's love life. Their portrayal of Ed Kemper, the Co-Ed Killer, was especially impressive. Sympathetic sociopath. S2 … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Mindhunter S2"Read More »

    Mercurial No More

    From the Worst of All Possible Timelines news department: Bitbucket dropping Mercurial Well, FUCK. The worst of all possible RCS has won, everything better has been abandoned because shit-eating Lingits gobble up their lord and master's garbage. I don't have any more hg repos, because dev tools standardized on shit, but I'm actually nauseated by … Continue reading "Mercurial No More"Read More »

    NetNewsWire is Back!

    NetNewsWire public beta I've been running it for the last day, and it's stable and fast. Syncing to my Feedbin account works great; the Feedbin web UI is usable, but especially the last redesign leaves me somewhat annoyed, and it has very limited keybindings. NNW also has local OPML subscriptions, if you don't need to … Continue reading "NetNewsWire is Back!"Read More »

    World of Warcraft Classic Naming Day

    previously Finally decided on the server, Mankrik. It's PVE, EST, 60%+ Horde. Not happy with the EST, but according to the reddit surveys the PST options were low-population and almost totally Alliance. I won't play PVP servers: Levelling in PVP-only zones is a tedious nightmare of some asshole 20 levels above you killing you over … Continue reading "World of Warcraft Classic Naming Day"Read More »

    What I'm Not Watching: Another Life

    New Netflix UFO first contact series. It's rare that a show flunks out with me as fast as this one has. Maybe I'm unfair, maybe I have impossible standards of mediocre TV. Certainly my tolerance for bullshit like FTL, non-functional starships, and implausible human social structures in SF decreases asymptotically with the newness of the … Continue reading "What I'm Not Watching: Another Life"Read More »
