It's a shame that Vita and Violet's romance never has gotten feature film focus. Violet was also a writer and also the two had a LONG and passionate affair ... I dunno ... it just feels like she gets erased from Vita's history in favor of Virginia.
I'll remember you, Violet ...

The most legendary comeback story probably in all of sports. What an absolutely epic day of - and for - #golf.
#TigerWoods has won #The2019Masters ... after all he has been through including back fusion and so many other surgeries. They said he might never play again and certainly no one expected him to win another major ... This is amazing for him and for the game of golf.
A "right-to-farm" law in most states protects farmers from being sued by neighbors for the routine smells and noise created by farming operations. But this year, the agriculture industry is pushing for laws that prevent neighbors from suing farms at all.
New monitor (Part 2) Show more
I looked up some pictures online and found that indeed it's a wonky piece of crap and even worse, used to be BLACK ... LOL. At least now it's white ... so ... it .... matches?? LOL whatever ...
I guess Samsung has a lot of these "afterthought VESA adaptors" for their monitors. They really need to just adopt VESA standards already ...
The monitor is epic though ... It's a beautiful curved gaming monitor and a nice upgrade from my old LG ...
New monitor (Part 1) Show more
My new monitor arrived yesterday and getting it mounted, unhooking the old one from a 5 year tangle of cord bundles and knots took me most of the afternoon ...
I love the monitor but the VESA mount on the back was an afterthought by Samsung - CLEARLY - because there is no way to actually screw it into the monitor. It clips into the existing NUB where their crap desk mount goes and FLOATS behind the back of the monitor ... it's ridiculous.
I really was like .... WTF?
Based on Norwegian author Jørn Lier Horst’s novels about police detective William Wisting, #Wisting is described as a character-driven thriller series of #NordicNoir with a strong, international appeal. The alone books have sold over 1.2 million copies in Norway alone and been translated into 30 languages.
Spring #anime season is upon us even though Spring itself seems a long way off.
I'm really only looking forward to #BungouStrayDogs S3 ... but I'm watching #FairyGone (first ep was ok), #CaroleandTuesday looks good, and I WANT #KimetsunoYaiba to be as good as it looks ... dunno yet since I haven't had time to watch ep 1. #ShoumetsuToshi also seems interesting but the animation style seemed farmed out ... we'll see on that too.

I HAVE NOTHING!!!!!!!
#CampNaNoWriMo Day 10 ...
Just FYI that's a gif I made from a short 3 minute film called "Miyako" by Erez Sitzer about a train attendant who works at a remote station in Japan ...
"She waved until there was no trace left of the distant train. no one witnessed her, except, well, me. in that short span, my love and wonder of life was renewed." -- Erez Sitzer
It's a beautiful film. A must watch.
Day 3 & 4 of #CampNaNoWriMo

RIP Vonda Show more
#VondaNMcIntyre has died of pancreatic cancer. She was 70.
McIntyre wrote novels, short stories and media tie-in books, edited a groundbreaking anthology of feminist SF, and founded the Clarion West #Writing Workshop. She won the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards for her 1979 novel Dreamsnake. She will probably be most remembered as the author who gave Ensign Sulu a first name (Hikaru) in her #StarTrek novel The Entropy Effect: that name was later written into one of the Star Trek films.

“What I wanted to do was an adaptation of the books, ’cos a lot of people are like, ‘Don’t touch that film!’ and I’m like, ‘I’m not remaking the film, I want to go back to the book.’ A lot of the people freaking out haven’t even read the books, and there are six gigantic books to go through. It’s so rich.” - Taika Waititi
He’s already said (back in 2017) that he will be casting Asian teenagers in the lead roles.

Day 2 of #CampNaNoWriMo
I thought I had something good for a couple of minutes and then I got hit with writer's block ...
The finale of Australia's most underestimated and genius show #GetKrackin was an absolutely BRUTAL and epic SLAYFEST brought by Nakkiah Lui and Miranda Tapsell. It was ... just ... incredible. Mindblowingly powerful and MUST SEE TV.
"There’s a lot to be said for witty, carefully barbed comedy. But there’s also a lot to be said for comedy that shreds normalcy to pieces — that cleaves right through the status quo, and calls for nothing less but revolution." -- JOSEPH EARP (Junkee)
Day 1 of #CampNaNoWriMo .... bad bad bad for me ...
Been obsessively playing Epic Games' #Satisfactory ............... I can't stop. Seriously. Early access is already a hell of a time ... ticks all of my automation boxes plus a few others.
