2015's Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of BlackBerry is more-or-less what it says on the tin. I began reading this book months ago and had various diversions. It's not badly written, it's more that the authors made a choice about how to present the narrative that I … Continue reading Dyke Media Reads: Losing the Signal
What a long, strange trip it's been. Honestly, found it a good and compelling story of being a teenager who is pretty much from the wrong side of the tracks. It's definitely worth the watch though. It has a curious history. It started out as a UPN show in its first two seasons becoming one … Continue reading Dyke Media Watch: Veronica Mars
Story time! Y'all know I had a Kawasaki Ninja 1000. Some of you know I bought it in the early months of my divorce in 2017. None of you know that I considered another vehicle, one with four wheels. It literally came down to a coin toss…if that silver dollar had landed on the other … Continue reading The road not taken.
Rise! Rise my yeasties and multiply! Praise Poppin' Fresh! This goes under "sometimes life hands you material." I live on a cul-de-sac where there are no driveways at the very end so someone setup a portable basketball goal there. I'm in the last house on one side and happened to look toward the end when … Continue reading Tasty false prophets!
This was our go-to for when we wanted to watch something before bed but there wasn't enough time for something with longer episodes.

A couple long exposure shots from my campsite. It wasn't a great time for star gazing as it was the week of the full moon. A 5 minute exposure. The tree is illuminated by our campfire. 20 minute exposure. It was a little cloudy and you can see the cloud glow from the moon.
Loved the show, disappointed in the series finale. Since the final season only went up this month I won't post much. I kind of feel about this like I did about Star Trek: Enterprise - the finale felt phoned-in, though for vastly different reasons. Regardless, I would suggest checking it out. It's on Netflix; was … Continue reading Dyke Media Watch: Lucifer
I'm on vacation in west Texas and will send updates later. For now enjoy this photo from my campsite while I was making coffee yesterday morning.
Heading for a week of camping in west Texas. Currently at a waypoint in Junction. Sign inside Junction Burger Texas liquor store.
Friday was the one year anniversary of my second marriage, at least as we observe it. I don't know if I posted about this: we had wanted to get married in a small ceremony in conjunction with a weekly event that It was a major part of our life from our third date until everything … Continue reading Scrapple (random bits & pieces)
