My (one of my) D&D characters is a necromancer called Alchemy (her wealthy parents believed in nominative determinism; to their dismay, children do not work that way). Alchemy is currently on an escort mission reading ‘Through the Eye of the Tusk’, sequel to ‘Tusk Love’, and looking forward to the third instalment, ‘From Tusk to Beard’, and then ‘Fifty Shades of Ivory’. It’s a long long escort mission.

Elder Child is well into their journey into Dungeonmastering. Pics of them gleefully preparing for the session and comfortably telling us all what is what in our feywild adventuring. This is some generational shifting since the rest of the party is adults who’ve been playing for 30+ years and their IRL children, now 16-20yo o_O

On the final stretch of Stranger Things s4. Movie length finale here I come!

Hey, so my much smarter IT nerd mate Lucas just joined the tooter-verse over on @duckaroy. He’s an expat Aussie from Mackay living in London like some kind of revere coloniser so give him the respect he deserves :P

Haven’t been to a concert since the before times, so when this appeared in my inbox I had a roller coaster of emotions 😂

But yes, season 4 is really good and if you kind of tapped out halfway through s3 but don’t have the energy to watch that first, good news: you don’t really have to. Maybe just watch the finale of s3 then boop on into s4.

Finally caught up on all of Stranger Things (season 4 is just amazing) and I get to be the Gen-X hipster who always knew Kate Bush was cool before she apparently became cool again.

Mind you, the way they cut that song up was very annoying 😆

I can’t really say anything else without spoilers but [spoilers] just made me roll my eyes. This must be how Star Trek fans feel watching the drek of Picard s2: like your favourite band just decided to start phoning it in. Fuck off Star Wars, please just die already. O_o

Ok I’ve watched the first 3 episodes of Obi-Wan now and I’m done. It’s direct-to-tv quality rubbish with none of the stylishness of Mando. The acting is mostly average and tiresome (Ewan is ok I guess, and young Leia is cool enough), but it all feels sooooo dull. None of this is helped by telling a prequel story, of course, with all the associated narrative chains.

Gawd I fucking hate the new plex logo typeface. It’s just the worst and I thought I would just get used to it … but nope, every time I hate it anew. I don’t even know why.

I am trying to find a spare AirTag I have but since it’s a spare I never activated it and so I can’t use Find My to find it, which, though very annoying, is also deliciously ironic.

A bunch of tech podcasts I listen to are sponsored by Kolide (co-lide) and they keep pronouncing it Collide, but the English language doesn’t work that way and it makes me increasingly angry. Thanks for coming to my TED talk >_<

I’m catching up with Lego Masters finally and it continuous to be the bestest show on TV do not at me.

I guess it looks like the US government is going to need to send us another CIA coup-expert ambassador to do a coup like they did back in the 70s *coughs coughs*

This is also the first election in like … 15 years … that I’ve not been following on Twitter and I gotta say I don’t miss it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Aus Election 

Watching the ABC electoral coverage and just heard Leigh Sales read out a text about how my local Greens candidate has promised to do something about aircraft noise & then trying to justify the huge swing based on ‘local issues’. Let me assure you I have never heard about that local issue (yes airplane noise is fucking terrible here but a federal politician can’t do anything about that and I’ve never heard anything about that in the interminable election ads) so there’s my take.

Australian Politics 

All this election talk of a hung parliament is just teasing. Also the correct term is ‘hanged’.
