Dragon Prince: Enjoyed

Newbie found this series for us after having watched it on her own on Netflix. She strongly recommended it to the family.

I try to watch a show with them. Just a couple episodes a night. We pause and talk about expectations for the story, where it might go, laugh, cheer, or share in the surprise as things go in ways we don’t expect.

I believe the tradition started with Netflix’s rerelease of Voltron and continued from there.

While I’m not going to really say anything more about the show itself, a certain scene from late in the series as it’s currently available made everyone laugh and rewind so I turned it into a GIF.

Seems like a perfect future reaction GIF for things.

I’m not sure what we’re going to go to next yet. There’s a vote for the Pacific Rim series and a vote for one called “Wakfu?” Maybe we’ll just do a few more episodes of Floor is Lava until we find a new story to enjoy together.

Scheduling Thoughts

So something I’m going to do this time around is not plan to post every day after this initial rush of posts. One, I have a big family and I’m just darn busy, the other is well, no, that’s it really. :p

So yes, there are going to be a flurry of posts as the days go on this month but after that things will probably slow down again as I figure out when I am actually going to post things, especially since I have twitter and facebook as well. Those kinds of sites pull a lot from the need for a “daily update” kind of situation.

I’m back, but not in the same way as I was. Still working through some videos to edit and upload too on Monk of Mists to get that back up and running but that’s going to take a little bit too. I haven’t abandoned that project though.

The Illustrious Return?

So one thing I’m still figuring out is how to use the new wordpress format. They seem to have butchered everything I really liked about it (blocks? What the crap are you?)

They also seem to want to make it more difficult for me to host my pictures on my own domain and instead want to try and insist I upload all my images to their site, probably so they can then force us to buy more space once we run out of the free space. Sorry guys, you’re already posting ads and I already pay for hosting elsewhere, so you’re going to have to deal with it me editing the html to get things exactly how I want it.

PS5 and the Rule of Three: Item 1: Final Fantasy XVI

I’ve been watching the PS5 reveal news going “meh, I have a PC, a backlog, and a Switch.”

Well, I finally have game one of my rule of three: Final Fantasy XVI.

What is the rule of three? I don’t invest in a new console platform until there are three games on the platform that I’m interested in actually playing.

So Sony, you now have my attention.

Five Games, Five Generations

So before I get started, where the crap have I been? Well, after that last post on 11/16/18 I ran out of pictures and time to post anything more. The joys of helping run a family during the holidays. It’s been a rough couple of months.

I mean, it’s taking me almost a month to get to looking at this tweet we’ll get to into a moment.

Now, if you don’t follow this guy’s blog about gaming yet, I’d highly recommend heading his way. You can find him over at Adventure Rules.

So this challenge was to pull five games from five different generations (and challenge five people, which I’ll leave alone).

A tweet wouldn’t do my response justice, hence why I’m here.

You want generations of gaming? I’ve got generations of gaming.

Let’s get started!

Mowing

Something really neat about modern cameras is that they capture the time pictures are taken. So while Redflare was enjoying mountains, I was recording moments at home that she was missing, like mowing the lawn.

I don’t think I’ve ever taken a picture of the camera that I use for these time lapse videos before. As I was setting up to mow I took a selfie with the camera standing in as Redflare who is usually out doing random yardwork at my side.

So here we go!

Don’t forget you can change the angle of view. If you’re not interested in me mowing there are always the clouds to watch float by.

At the end you can see me doing some of the stuff Redflare would do: tending to the apple trees (there was a darn vine trying to climb one) and then snapping some pictures of the growing apples.
