A few weeks ago I took Instagram off my phone. The number of ads playing had become unbearable to the point where it wasn’t worth keeping around. I still check out the website because I can use an adblocker but I feel that there’s no reason to use the mobile application. But at this stage the only two remaining social network applications I have retained on my phone are Snapchat and Twitter. And I never use Snapchat anymore. But what happened? Why am I going through social media withdrawal?
Jessica Jones season 2 was released on March 8th. I caught just the first episode the night it premiered and finished last night. Many people gave praise to the first season, especially the villain Kilgrave. How did season 2 hold up?
I don’t really hate PHP. Yes, I do. Maybe not. It pays the bills. Either way, for me PHP has been a decade long enduring (endearing?) period of the abusive girlfriend syndrome for me. All the places that I have worked where PHP was employed at some level had major issues. But why is that?
As someone who has worked in LA for quite a while, I’ve come to the general conclusion that the tech scene for the most part is god awful for engineers. At least developers who want to accomplish something meaningful and allow to do something where they feel their soul is being sucked dry. But why is that? What in particular is it that creates such a horrid vacuum for the average developer just trying to get by out here?
Right now, most of the Alien series has been gathered over on HBO and up for a bit in preparation for Alien: Covenant. I had been re-watching the original Alien movie and tonight I finally got to see Alien: Covenant in it’s entirety. Ridley Scott have you gone senile?
This post will delve into my recent upgrades in the game, including discussing the post I read from reddit as well as a certain Boom Beach YouTuber. Rather than respond on the threads myself, I preferred keeping the content here where I could speak my thoughts on certain subject matter, namely the Boom Beach community and Supercell as a company.
Today was the last day I’ll most likely ever be forced to upgrade a landing craft. It felt like a massive relief as the majority of my offenses on my secondary account have finally been maxed out in terms of non-gold using resources. That leaves just heroes, abilities and defensive structures as my last remaining bits. In addition to this, I want to give some thoughts on recent updates to Boom Beach.
A friend from work recently invited me into his guild for Path of Exile. I had been meaning to get back into the game for some time so that gave me a little more motivation in playing, especially with the various content patches that I had missed. But I never did a proper review nor truly went in depth about my feelings for the game for a variety of reasons. Since I have some spare time, I decided to write up some thoughts on the game.
It was announced that Netflix has suspended (fired) Kevin Spacey from House of Cards (whom I believe he may have produced to an extent) after the allegations of sexual abuse came to light. Part of the situation might have been further exacerbated with him “coming out of the closet” at the same time, which was not ironically rejected by the LBGT community in poor taste and timing. In view of these matters, I wanted to provide some personal thoughts on the situation.
The hot topic in Hollywood is the aftermath of Harvey Weinstein getting removed from his own company as a result of sexual harassment charges covering over a decade (maybe even more). From this incident, much more of Hollywood’s dirty laundry has slowly been uncovered where other stars, directors, producers, etc. connected with Weinstein are either fessing up or becoming connected and complicit as part of these charges. Many women in Hollywood (as well as the more supportive men) are advocating changes within the industry specifically for this conduct but I feel that the issues are far deeper.
