Matthew Sweet @ Paste Studio

This live performance by Matthew Sweet at Paste Studio highlights some of his wonderful newer songs that don't get the attention that his classic hits do.

Run 2019.07.13

I've been enjoying rerunning the third season of Zombies, Run! It's still surprising the team behind the app was able to put out 60 missions in that season.

The Blood Queen's Defiance aims to provide a DMless 5e adventure that can be played just by a group of players without having a ton of prep time.

Summer is fully here in Halifax and I've been enjoying runs through wonderful weather.

The Revolution Will Be Cooked

A couple months back in Splinter, Natalie Shure, published a primer on the relationship between food and labour, introduced through an account of the Black Panthers' food programs. "The Revolution Will Be Cooked" is a good introduction to thinking about food and the work that surrounds it with more clarity.

Run 2019.07.05

Today I ran the latest Zombies, Run! new adventure, Track the Ripper, an alternative history story. I've been enjoying running stories free from zombies and the Victorian police drama worked well.

Ian Penn – A Love Like Yours

Ahead of a new album, From The Rear View Mirror, Ian Penn has a beautiful video for "A Love Like Yours" ready.

Run 2019.07.03

The last mission before the mid-season break of this season of Zombies, Run! continued to be a compelling story. I'm happier with this season overall than the previous one.

A Street Obscured

At the Halifax Central Library there is a series of windows that are covered in a dotted pattern. At different distances they obscure the view of the street in interesting ways.

Big Wreck – Too Far Gone

Their new video for the song "Too Far Gone" is an odd match for track, but a nice change from typical performance-focused videos. The riff in this one is a beast.

Run 2019.06.30

Running through the rain isn't so bad in the summer. I was in my Xeroshoes Genesis sandals, mostly to avoid having my other footwear become wet, and was very happy with the pace they foster.

Run 2019.06.29

I was out running through the fog early today. It was a refreshing experience to cross the MacDonald Bridge in a cloud and then to loop around before getting on with grocery shopping.

Run 2019.06.28

I become very aware of traffic light patterns when I run routes with a lot of traffic lights. Today's run felt especially sluggish at the start, and lights added nearly 2 minutes to my first km. As much as I love some of the scenery I pass, more and more I am looking for paths with less traffic and fewer lights.

I took Celestine around the library for the first time and we found a good book.

The Winnipeg General Strike

Earlier this week Stuff You Missed in History Class released an episode on The Winnipeg General Strike of 1919. It's a fair introduction to the strike and its context. The racism and xenophobia leveled against strikers is all too familiar as tactics of the right today and the events have much to tell us about struggles today.

Run 2019.06.27

Today was the third in a row running the same route. I'm happy to have been speeding up my pace day over day as I get back into a daily running habit.

Run 2019.06.26

This week I'm back to a familiar running route, passing the tourists visiting Titanic grave sites.

Run 2019.06.24

Sometimes I construct a run around an errand I have to do, and today I had to drop by a grocery store to check for lemon grass. It matches the feel of the missions in Zombies, Run! quite well. It might not be as important as preventing zombie blood from getting into a water supply, but what is?
