OMG, what? No. Why would anyone want that? I'm a fan of many of Tarantino's movies, and loved Deadpool, but this is just not a good mix. It would be like getting Tim Burton to direct a Big Trouble in Little China remake or something. Just wrong on every level.

No. Just no. Stop it. No.
If there was ever a chance to see Tarantino do a project almost guaranteed to make a billion dollars, this is it. We got a great taste of what this could be like in Kill Bill, but imagine having a guy like Tarantino write dialogue for The Merc with the Mouth! It would be so glorious. Join me! . ***UPDATE***...

Good questions, and ones I don't have answers to without a lot better insight into their respective personalities and what broke down between them.

Had someone randomly add me on Bleep ( the other day (via email I assume? not sure who they are yet, so dunno) and just noticed.

Outside of that one rando, and a couple of uber paranoid old friends, I was not expecting anyone to actually be using it (though it is pretty nice on the security/privacy side of things, it's a bit clunky at times).

If you're one of the 8 people on the internet that seems to care enough about that stuff to use a separate messaging app, and for some reason want to add me, here's my public key in qr code form, because what better way to seem mainstream than to use qr codes, right?

So the new Jack Reacher flick was pretty good, imo.

Pretty much if you enjoyed the first one, you'd probably enjoy the new one. Story is a bit meh, but the little bits of comedy were well placed, and the action is mostly pretty fun.

Kinda predictable, but it's the sort of thing where you're thinking "oh, is he gonna do what I think?" and then he does it, and you still cheer him on because it was fun to watch... so it mostly works out ok.

Ain't breaking any molds or anything, but it was a fun watch.

Plus, Robin Sparkles gets to kick some ass, so that's always nice.

+Shannon Roy I'm slightly surprised there aren't more "I thought you'd be taller" jokes, just for the book readers to enjoy, but I'm guessing Cruise wouldn't like that too much haha

Nothing like some tunes to round out a peaceful Friday night of sitting around like a lazyass.

As soon as my 128GB version comes in, I'm returning my original Note 7 AND it's replacement that arrived the day they recalled them all.

I'm, conflicted. I loved my Note 7. But, the Pixel XL looks good too.

Been using Wealthsimple for a little while now and it's been pretty great, especially since I'm an investment noob. They've done a great job explaining all the little bits I had questions about and it's crazy easy to manage things. Still a bit early to give a long term recommendation, but so far I'm really happy with them. Here's hoping that trend continues!

Working on some writing, and getting into the mindset of the character is making me overly paranoid. I THINK that's a good sign that it will feel at least somewhat authentic or whatever, but sheesh. Brains are weird.

Generally these days my energy is mostly focused on being a dad.

I also occasionally do some freelance writing, photography, and any number of random geeky things when opportunities arise. Such as the hangout podcast I'm a part of,

I enjoy very short walks far away from the beach, and tend to spend large chunks of the day in front of computers. Though I do try to find time to read science and/or philosophy related books when I'm not trapped in cyberspace.
