Assorted Articles VI

I'm continuing to sift through political articles to find gems. I have some older ones, but there's an article from last week that I think is important.

Squirrel Girl

Marvel's Squirrel Girl is one of the most fun and lovable characters in comics. Ryan North and Erica Henderson redefined Squirrel Girl and injected a playful spin on comics that was desperately needed at Marvel in their The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl run. Squirrel Girl now serves as a great way to jump into Marvel stories in many different media.

Run 2019.10.16

It was nice to get back to running after a few days away from it. The season 4 story with zombie vikings and the early hints at season 8's big events was fun to be rerunning.

Beabadoobee – I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus

Beabadoobee is creating wonderful pop songs that would have been at home on 90s music video channels. The new EP Space Cadet is brimming with vibrant earworms. "I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus" is a highlight from among those songs.

I've continued on taking a photo each day for a Project 365. The photos are shared each day on my FrozenTruth.com account at apollo.

Train Cruise

Train Cruise is a television series from NHK that celebrates trains and train culture in Japan. As a fan of trains in general, it has been a treat to watch the beautiful shots of moving trains and to see how a country can embrace travel by train.

Now and then I go through a backlog of political articles I tucked away to read again and find some I want to share.

Mario Kart Tour

The release of Mario Kart Tour received decidedly mixed reviews, but I have been enjoying it and playing a bit each day. The game looks great and has very good touch controls, and it does feel like a Mario Kart game.

Music 2019.10.04-2019.10.10

My listening this week was clustered around a few artists, and mostly quite subdued. Must be autumn's influence.

Run 2019.10.10

I enjoyed the first training mission for the Halloween 2019 Virtual Race for Zombies, Run! The story wasn't as directly tied to the carnival the race will feature, but it did have a new-agey capitalist as a great foil.

Run 2019.10.09

Much of my running has been focused around a destination lately rather than roughly toward home after work. Trying to shape my path to get to the place I'm heading in a determined amount of time (usually the length of a Zombies, Run! mission) can be an interesting puzzle to work out.

Run 2019.10.08

Having to rescue a baby in the zombie apocalypse will never fail to tug at my heartstrings.

Run 2019.10.07

One of the little annoyances in running is when I try to fit a run into an errand. Today I ended up cycling around a store I needed to visit when I finished.

This afternoon we took some photos of Celestine to mark her 5 month birthday, which was at the end of last week.
