Next on the roster to watch is The Colony on Netflix. Haven’t heard much about it, but I was served the banner last night when I launched the app. Seemed right up my alley. Review to follow.
The new series gave breath of life to an older classic. Not many were fans of the previous ending. I fit that criteria. This new mini-series was a fun adventure with new problems to face with returning and new characters to chase each other around a tree. All in all, it took some time (a few episodes) to get off the ground, and begin to instill fear and anxiety. I’d say by episode five you are fully vested into the characters and the suspension of disbelief is set. With that said, you are already halfway through the season, so it would be foolish to give up now that you have dedicated that much time into it. Needless to say, by the end, I’m not certain this was the wrap up that was supposed to cure the abysmal ending of the original show. It still left plenty of unanswered questions, and frankly desiring more. I will say if they are attempting to leave it open ended for additional spin-offs, even that was sloppy. It was overall a good experience, but not sure I would pose it as a memorable one.

From infancy to present day, you are running. What is the end goal, and when you achieve it, where then now? Are our minds so infinitesimal we as a species can be simplified to spikes in dopamine when we get to minute finish lines. Drawing new lines further and further into the future. When we cease to be, where is the line then?
I have decided to finally teach myself more about infosec and whitehat hacking. I have always been involved and passionate about technology. Now, it feels as though I need to focus on what is making me happy as a person in work and providing for my family. In all regard, this reminds me of David and Goliath or becoming Atlas. The subject matter is so diverse and expansive, it is an extremely intimidating subject. With the right tools, and tenacity, anything is possible.
P.S. Based on previous post “Procrastinator,” I did not follow through on my promise. The remainder of the month of September, and the entire month of October, no writing. For shame.
I had promised myself revitalizing this blog would not turn out like all the other attempts. Yet, here we are. Posts are taking longer and longer to reach the interwebs and eyeballs. Brain-tickling banter falling to the wayside. Yes, I typed ‘Brian’ first and had to correct. Seems like that is something that happens to a lot of people? Maybe? Bueller?
Well, this is me making an effort to at least type something out, so I at least feel somewhat accomplished in a goal I had set back in May. Summer is ending, need to close the pool for our first Midwest winter. Technically mine, my wife grew up here. In the interim, let these words ease your mind and I hope to be much more proactive in this venture. Only time will tell.
Outside of our home office, the previous homeowner must have planted this bulb and the entire time we have lived here (given, it’s only been a couple months), nothing was sprouting from the soil…until this week. Some completely random stem grew and developed a flowering body and then bloomed. After using Google lens, we found out it is often called a “Surprise Lily.” The naming couldn’t have been more serendipitous.
The bump has receded, back to normal satisfactory bumpless standards. Mind control nor parasite appears to be affecting me. At least that is what the voice in my head is telling me to say.
It started with a bump. At the back of the neck, at the lower part of the cranium. Mosquito season was in full effect and on high supply. After days of the bump not receding back into the flush skin contour, I began to get nervous. New environment, new flora and fauna. I’ve read stories about hobo spiders. What if I was host to a dwelling of a foreign creature? Laying it’s larva inside my neck so close to my brainstem, potentially taking control of my mind and actions. Then I started thinking about the tracker in the Matrix. What if the bump was growing, developing tentacles that would wrap around my brainstem, furthering my subconscious mind into the elaborate ruse that is the matrix? Only time will tell.
We had this grand idea the other day. Our kids say some outlandish things, in which with my background in English, we can easily turn this into an almost organic Flarf movement. Instead of using search engines to predetermine or populate our stanzas, using nonsensical thoughts our kids have to paint the picture. So, logically, we made a Twitter account solely for this purpose. If you are interested, please check it out!
With moving across country, moving into the new house, we hit the ground running. Upgrading the most important key factors of our new “forever home” without sacrificing the ability to live comfortably. Yet, for a blog with the name daily(ish), I should really keep more focus on actually updating somewhat frequently.
I don’t have a readership, I have a few people who seem to like the content, but it could just be crawlers and bots. The recognition does feel nice, even if it was from programmed 0’s and 1’s. With all of that said, the house is coming along. We are turning it into what it was to ours. There are plenty more opportunities for customization and upgrading, but all in due time. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and I have to keep reminding myself.
We have discussed creating a new blog that is more family-centric, versus my thoughts on page. If that comes to fruition, it will be exciting to see what we develop! I suppose this is where I open up the comments for anyone that has first hand experience with a family blog. The do’s, the don’ts, pros and cons…etc.. We will see what this crazy ride has for in store for us. Whatever the outcome, I’m excited for the journey.
