I don’t know how much time I’ve sunk into Death Stranding so far but it’s a lot and I haven’t reached Port Knot City yet. I love the game so far. It’s absurd and mundane and brilliant.

It actually plays a lot like a drunk Final Fantasy XV, which I’ve been spending a lot of time on recently.

Can’t remember if I posted a photo of my costume here but I’m enjoying the cowboy look. Hey, if Fields of the Nephilim could run about as gothic cowboys why can’t I?

The kids’ school sent a note out saying costumes should not “display gratuitous violent images or be promiscuous”.

Promiscuous? I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

I didn’t know Gravis, who made joysticks and soundcards, were a local company.

Finally looked at the other side of the carton and realized eggnog is called “hen’s milk” in French.

I’d apparently forgotten why “rush hour” is called that. There are so many people when you leave work at the normal time.

On episode 15 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and only realized now that there was an English dub track too. There is no way an English dub of JoJo is as over-the-top as the Japanese.

In a not typically Canadian move, the top two party leaders skipped the line and are giving their speeches at the same time as the NDP leader.

The Canadian election is turning out to be surprising in possibly the least dramatic way.

On one hand I should support the kids’ joy of singing and music. On the other hand hearing out-of-tune renditions of “Creeper, Aw Man” loses its sheen after the first time, let alone the millionth.

Watching live TV like a Boomer, but on YouTube.

rugby man: this orb, this bollock, this cursèd ègg. no matter how i yeet it or holding bear it off the field it returns and returns to torment me ever. ten strongest lads of my country cannot help me be rid of it. and the language barrier prevents my opponents from coordinating with me in this goal.

They’ve made a few basic things a bit more more complicated in iOS and I don’t like it. Today’s example: rearranging apps.

I just saw a PPC supporter say they want to abolish the capital gains tax but expand the CPP and protect it from the government. If working class supporters of right-wing parties actually just talked to each other, their base would implode.

I like how Picard is going one step further than Vulcan space elves and making their Romulans look like this.

‪I wade knee deep through the dregs of Canadian political Twitter sometimes and know this: Canadian political discourse is every bit as deranged as the US. No difference. We could easily end up like Trump-era US or Brexit-era UK.
