friday random (pandora) ten: “liberty and justice for all” edition

29 Mar

Settling in before starting what I hope will be a quiet workday from home.

neon hypercolored memories

28 Mar

I started “reading” (well, listening to Wil Wheaton performing the text of) Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One this week. I’m only a handful of discs in, but I’m really enjoying it.

01 Mar
