Run 2019.05.22

I ran today in my running sandals, face-first into a cold wind. I dashed past a bus of tourists visiting Titanic grave sites. By the end I was drenched in sweat, all save my toes. My toes were numb from the cold.

Zelda & Chill

Zelda & Chill is a perfectly relaxed assortment of tracks that would be at home in the best Hylian cafe. This is firmly in my rainy day rotation.

Trees Getting Leaves

Spring has been slow to arrive here in Halifax, but maple leaves are finally amassing.

Affordable Vegan Filipino Dishes

In this video RG Enriquez tries to dispel the notion that vegan food has to be expensive and presents 10 dishes that can be made with ingredients that cost less than P100 (about $2.50 Canadian). Some of my favourites are in the list, including laing, ginataang langka, and ginataang kalabasa at sitaw.

Affordable Vegan Filipino Dishes

Since spending time in the Philippines and being introduced to Filipino dishes by Tonet and her family, I’ve been trying vegan versions of Filipino foods. I’ve relied on Astig Vegan for recipes and ideas. In this video RG Enriquez tries to dispel the notion that vegan food has to be expensiv

Mario & Chill

Mario & Chill by Helynt is a brilliant synth-drenched album that infuses tracks from the Super Mario games with vitality and makes for great laid-back music to work to.

Celestine at 3 Weeks

Saturday my daughter Celestine was three weeks old. She has had little milestones, like her first bus trip today and her first bath the Sunday before.

Run 2019.05.18

The eighth season of Zombies, Run! continues to be solid. I'm curious to see where the story heads this time, and it promises to be a departure from previous seasons, at least in setting.

Run 2019.05.16

Today I ran the first mission of Zombies, Run!'s eighth season. The run was what I've come to expect from the game; the voice acting is solid and the story is generally strong.

Prometheus Brown’s Tagsibol

I haven't heard anything new from Prometheus Brown for too long, so when the three songs on Tagsibol dropped today I rushed over to listen. "Seen It (Coming)" is a great track and the others are strong. It's so good to hear something fresh.

Blooms in the Rain

It's a rainy day, but the beautiful flowers on this tree I passed on my walk home brightened it.

LIGHTS – Lost Girls

I've been a bit out of the loop on LIGHTS' projects, with her comics in my to read pile, but the great acoustic "Lost Girls" and its video have me excited for the new album, Skin&Earth Acoustic, and to finally read the Skin&Earth comics.

Dum Dum Girls – Rimbaud Eyes

Dum Dum Girls' Too True is an album I return to time after time to enjoy in full. It's brimming with wonderful gems, but Rimbaud Eyes is the standout for me.

Pokémon Ruby II

My time for games has been limited lately, but I did manage to continue Pokémon Ruby and finish by playing as I walked to and from work or in those few times I was able to sit and game.

Hoenn was a bit less intuitive to navigate than Kanto and Johto, but that might just be from playing games set in those regions more often. One of the best parts was explorin

Run 2019.05.12

I went for another run over to Dartmouth today. Dashing across the bridge is always the most satisfying portion of the path I take, but I also enjoyed a meandering route for the end of the run.

Run 2019.05.11

My run today in the Zombies, Run! app had an interesting change. In the latest beta of the app there are two new missions that are unrelated to the Zombies, Run! story and are instead time travel stories that follow the Lewis & Clark Expedition. I enjoyed the different style of run and the facts inserted into the run. It's more like the content of Six to Start's other major running project

Gusta Vegan Seitan Stick

This morning I tried Gusta's Vegan Seitan Stick Pizzaroni simply fried in a pan. It was close enough to what I remember real pepperoni tasting and just delicious on its own. It's great to see items like this popping up at local grocery stores, but hopefully prices will come down in time.

Celestine Emerald Recap

I've been holding back on posting every day with new photos of Celestine, not wanting to be one of those over-zealous parents who shares nothing else. But she's terribly cute so I'll do big drops of adorable photos now and then.

One of the most on-the-nose shower gifts we received has Celestine dressed as "baby lemon".
