Seasonal greetings

Recommended Posts

A summer season winds down, as the chill of fall has made it's appearance in the mornings, before the sun kicks into mode. Also of the event nature is the Pope doing his east coast tour. Philadelphia planning, is withholding details on main line subway closures. I chuckle because I see 'safety' as a justification for poor planning, since the infrastructure is already pretty overburdened on daily events, let alone a giant religious event. Tomorrow starts the festivities and quite a bit of center city is already closed off, or has the barricades ready to install.

 

On the upside, in the madness of bad logistics, I have some extra days off for a long weekend. I should get a bike ride in before everything else starts up this week. Circling back to the weather, it is nice to not sweat profusely when enjoying a ride.

 

City life is busy, but goes well. After a year here, I feel I have adapted pretty well. Last night I made some rice in a new cooker I picked up. It makes chimes like 'twinkle twinkle little star'. I chucked and about an hour later, enjoyed some rice. As usual, I am reading security news as it comes up. While reading articles, cutting through the fluff shock articles and the ones that detail valid exploit disclosure details, as to better protect against the practical vectors. Nerd life :)

I have been reading various books and working on my coding skills. I am taking my time, as to keep the concepts in my head in a workable manner.

 

Thanks for reading this journal-like entry. Granted that is nothing too new for this site. Be well, stay out of trouble, enjoy yourselves and never stop imagining what you can do.

And now you are on my Wifi. :)

 

Halloween horror movie season is upon us. Enjoy as I started up some movies this weekend. Dagon, Trick R Treat, and A girl walks alone at night, are my recently watched items.

I'm on a dystopian horror vibe currently. I am enjoying The Wire from 2002. Most gripping are the pen registers and surveillance technology used in the show, against a drug lord empire.

 

Randomly, in video games I was playing Bayonetta. Then I realized I can just watch all the cutscenes online, since the game is an interactive movie. God of War clones are a little played out for me to sink time into. I can also blame Darksiders 2 for that. That damn game was waaaay too long and padded exploration for my interests.

 

Movie wise, I may sneak in another George Romero / Dead film series watch. It has also been some time since I watched Bad Taste. The same holds true for watching the Evil Dead trilogy.

I just watched all the evil deads last weekend. Also watched the new 2013 one for the first time. Won't need to watch that again, but was alright to watch once I guess.

 

Haven't watched Bad Taste I don't believe. Will look that up.

 

Oct is already half over. Shit.
