As a small child, I thought it was an ocean.
Chicago. Sand dunes. A ferry crossing. A voyage reveals striking topography, time-worn communities and the reassuring permanence of an unchanging lake amid it all.

Still running across Iwata eulogies. This one from +Jon Irwin​​ is great.

"We interact with these movable worlds and we feel new, or young, or challenged, or confused, or angry, or elated. When the father-figure of that fun is cut down, we react in kind. I never shook his hand. But it doesn’t matter, because he’s held out his own to us so many times, those two static limbs, a gesture forged in formality but pulled off with a mischievous wink: We were both in on the game."
Nintendo's fourth-ever president has died. ;

Anthony Adams might be the best thing about being a Chicago Bears fan.

Brilliant.

Overheard at the library: "That guy who played Thor's brother, Mookie. What's his name? The guy who played Mookie."

Finally beat Star Fox 64 3D and all I've got to show for it is this lousy photo. Took me a month+ to figure out how to beat the Andross brain; I'd never even made it to Venom as a kid. The solo piano over the end credits is classic and completely +Nintendo​​​, love the final send-off pictured here. +Dylan Cuthbert​​​ absolutely wonderful re-imagining, now I want to get the DS out and play Command again. Maybe next time I wake up at 4AM and can't sleep.

So there was almost a William Stout-designed Jurassic Park cartoon in 1993. Mind blown.
Back in 1993 Universal almost pulled the trigger on an animated Jurassic Park TV show. It never happened, but thanks to legendary artist William Stout we can see what it would have looked like!

+Google Photos​​​ is now this close to reaching a Picasa level of utility for me. On desktop, album titles now populate the search menu like in the mobile app, and the previously-absent Scrapbook Pictures album is now totally present. Hooray. You can even find the Profile Photos album via the search box, though it doesn't yet appear in the display of albums. Once we get a "Move to" option for photos, we'll be there. Thx +Bradley Horowitz​​​ et al.

*Also, for the first couple months I was under the mistaken assumption that some previously-set album cover images were not recognized/respected by the new product. I was wrong; they were indeed recognized if they had been set in Picasa or G+, but in the case that the cover image in an album had simply been auto-set by default as a result of being the first image in the album, Photos changed it up via auto-choice by algorithm. Turns out way back I had simply made many of my desired cover images the first in their respective albums. Anyway, problem solved.

Photos is now my go-to for all my photo storage and sharing. It's exactly what I want. I liked Picasa, but its integration into Googe+ was a failure, imo. The separate Photos product somehow plays much nicer.

JANUARY 07003 - Bell Studies for The Clock of The Long Now remains one of Eno's most intriguing works. This is one of its more accessible tracks.
