Watched a documentary on 2 Tone last night, so today's Throwback Thursday tune is one of my favorites from The (English) Beat, from 1982's Special Beat Service -- "Sole Salvation."  #tbt

So it appears that my friends in the UK are experiencing what many of us here felt in 2004, with the unbelievable re-election of George W. Bush.

At the time, this quote from Aragorn offered me some solace, so I'm posting it here:

“We must do without hope. At least we may yet be avenged. Let us gird ourselves, and weep no more. We have a long road, and much to do.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, Book II, Chapter VI.

Watched this video over lunch, and now I'm itching to design some 3D-printed toys. Pulp stuff?   Far West?   Hmm...

In this video feature, learn how Avalanche fused the Disney Infinity art style with classic characters like Yoda, Han Solo, and more.

Visit with oldest daughter (for her law school graduation) comes to an end, and today will be spent wrestling with the U.S. air travel system.

Back at work tomorrow. The home stretch beckons.

All set to watch the NBC Upfront in about an hour, but heck if they're releasing all their show trailers beforehand, I might skip all the blah blah blah demographics BS.

The genius who came up with the Sea Lion strip that became a verb, now absolutely nails "Compassionate Conservatism."

People tend to focus on what they like, and ignore what they hate.
