Ant-Man!

Caught this last night, and it was a LOT of fun! It reminds me a whole lot of when I first saw Iron Man, which is a better movie (no doubt), but also focused very much on the origin of the hero, and a very specific story / plot line.

And without spoilers, there are things that happen in the movie that are definitely NOT in the trailer, so don't worry that you've seen the "best parts", because you ain't seen nothing yet!

(Also, there are two post-credits sequences, so be sure to stick around until the very end...)
Critics Consensus: Led by a charming performance from Paul Rudd, Ant-Man offers Marvel thrills on an appropriately smaller scale -- albeit not as smoothly as its most successf...

Here we go again...

I almost hate drawing attention to this, but I happen to like Google Plus, damn it! What irks me most is that the lack of enthusiasm for Google Plus from YouTube users is seen as the nail in the coffin. Personally, I use each app quite a bit, but I very rarely comment on YouTube, and I post something on G+ about once or twice a week.

I will absolutely not be going back to Facebook, which I've been off for years now. Whatever else Google does, long live the +!
Google is finally going to stop trying to make Plus happen. The company announced in a blog post Monday that it will no longer force people to use a Google Plus account to log in to other, more popular Google services. That includes YouTube, whose users have been howling for...

I think most of what Google is doing in this instance is right. Divorcing Youtube from G+ is a blessing. Having youtube comments appearing on G+ was never wanted and people complained. Separating your photos from G+ also good. Make is easy to share to G+, but stop suggesting or automatically assuming they should be shared.
People on Google+ do not use it the same way Facebook is used. I like Google+ the way I use it.
What I would like to see, is the ability to share a specific Google Drive directory with a circle. That would be an awesome feature.

This has been a good year for music! Ben and I took in the last day of the Dragon Boat Festival to check out Hollerado and Tokyo Police Club, then spent a couple of nights at BluesFest to see Chance the Rapper, Marianas Trench, Kanye West and Arkells. Still one more night of BluesFest on the agenda, when we'll be catching Interpol, G-Eazy and Logic.
(and no, there are no shots of the Kanye night in the album... didn't pull out my phone the whole damned time!)

Big change a comin'

After 8 years of doing the same job (with a few side projects), I'm about to jump with both feet into a new endeavour. I'm not leaving my employer, but my responsibilities will most likely be very different starting on the 29th. I'm definitely looking forward to the new job, but I'm understandably nervous as well. It's a wild new frontier for me.

Change is almost never easy, but if we don't take a risk every now and then, how can we possibly know what we're truly capable of?

Bring on the "tasteful porn"?

TL;DR, but I think we can all agree we'll all be seeing a lot more bewbs on our screens. Or maybe wangs, equal opportunity being what it is these days...
 
Google changes social Terms to target harassment, make room for art

Songs to check out...

I'm really liking the radio station I'm tuned to in the car. I think it's CBC Radio-2, but it could be Radio-3 (I'll have to check tonight). Here are some songs that show up on the playlog for this morning:

Renegades - X Ambassadors
Untouchable - Mo Kenney
Hunger of the Pine - Alt-J
Girl Shaped Love Drug - Gomez

Windows 10 - It's coming...


So, if you're a Windows user, are you willing / ready to receive your FREE Windows 10 upgrade? It's only about one week away.


I use openSUSE on a laptop (when I use an actual PC), and very sparingly access the desktop PC that currently runs Windows 7. Mostly for gaming, truth be told. I'm always keen to try new things, and this might be something I would like, similar to moving from Lollipop from Kit Kat on my cell phone.


So... what's your decision?

I've got a cloud you can shake your fist at, if you're interested.

Offline-ish

I recently changed to a new job (jorb?), and as part of this move, the powers-that-be physically moved me as well. I'm back in the building I used to work in, which is nice (familiarity), but I never had a data plan while working here, and am finding that coverage is spotty, to say the least. Scanning between 3G and LTE has been smoking my battery, so for the time being, I've been turning off data while at the office.

So what, you're asking yourself. And here's what: sometimes, I get flashes of inspiration that might be made into tweets, but I'm pretty sure Twitter kinda needs to be online in order to work. What I'm looking for now is an asynchronous Twitter client, one that I can tweet into, to my cold dead heart's content, and that will sync up when I step out of the building and take in that juicy data goodness.

Does such a Twitter client exist? Oh, and please note that it needs to be Android. Thanks all-a-y'all!

Kitty Party!

So we welcomed a couple of new arrivals into our home recently, and we're in the trial period phase, just making sure they're a good fit for us. Based on our last experience / waking nightmare, we've become a little ore cautious.

That being said, he and she seem to have adjusted quite well after being barn / golf course cats, and we're doing our best to make them feel welcome.

One thing we did differently this time: two cats! We introduced Croûton (not how we spelled it, but change approved!) to the house while we still had Willow (RIP), and the cohabitation was strenuous at best. Then the Marshmallow debacle (PTSD, ADD, WTF) had us considering getting a little friend for her, but we brought her back to the OHS before we went any further.

These two are siblings, so they may fight, scrap and spar, but so far they seem to keep each other entertained for the most part. Win! We'll have to see how long that lasts...

Looking for...

Many, many years ago, I had a copy of a book about the drug trade, and the ripple effect that surrounded it. It was very in-depth, and the author (authors?) seemed to have an almost supernatural amount of access to law enforcement and criminal sources. There was even a chapter devoted to a hit man who had such powerful hands, the flesh between his thumbs and index fingers "were the size of lemons" (I'm paraphrasing, but the passage really struck me).

Somewhere along the line, I lost the book, but would love to read it again. Problem is, I can't for the life of me seem to track it down. It was probably published back in the mid to late eighties or early nineties, but no amount of Googling has turned it up.

If you're reading this, and you think you know what the novel is called, or who wrote it, please let me know. I would be a very happy reader again!
