Doctor and therapist say I’m still “sane” for early 2022!

A good double whammy for the Spring! Especially since personal matters are going well, work is…work, that’s why it isn’t called fun, especially with the pandemic. The bigger, ongoing concern was in the last session with my therapist, she wants … Continue reading

Seeing Red: Must See

Rather bummed that Disney didn’t have the confidence to release this semi-original idea in theaters exclusively as they do with the MCU stuff. It was stronger than Luca (the Little Italian Mermaid) and about on par with Inside/Out or Soul, the last two near-perfect movies … Continue reading

Found a way to tally up the comments!

Last night, my ol’ WMUR and Marquette friend Stephen D posted three comments on the Picayune. It’s always great to see any kind of feedback! As always, my count for the upcoming contest to award whoever lands the coveted 600th post got … Continue reading

Black Widow: Worth Seeing (MCU Recap 2)

I wanted to see this movie not to just be an MCU completist (I’ve only missed one MCU movie in a theater) but as a show of support to Scarlett. The actress was a trooper in a male-dominated genre and … Continue reading

RIP Taylor Hawkins

Sad to hear about him passing but all the substances in his blood should never come as a surprise. Touring is hard. With any incarnation of show business, the public expects you to always be “on.” What I’m mostly surprised … Continue reading

I’m on the verge of quitting my credit union in the North

I will always stand by credit unions to the end since they are living proof that Socialism works! However, today was the last straw with them handling my primary credit card. Practically every damned year, they get hit by a … Continue reading

Goalie with a funny name in Quebec

Hockey returns tonight but I have other plans (comedy club with a friend). Fear not! I’ll be going tomorrow since I never turn away a chance to see the Milwaukee Admirals (my old team when I was there). I just … Continue reading

1987: Austin’s tug-of-war battle

It originally started in 1986 but fizzled out after the 1988, the third and last. Too bad. This silly content would’ve been nice to keep. However, losing fun and amusing stuff is the story of Austin since the Aughts as … Continue reading

RIP Steve Wilhite (belated)

Mr. Wilhite is mostly known by those who really, really know their History of Computer Science or the Internet but he was the person responsible for creating the .GIF. Sadly, he passed away on March 14th from CV-19-related complications. Such … Continue reading

Blades of Steel flashback!

All the time we wasted in 1988-89 playing this instead of studying! This passed for a hockey videogame then too. Well, Blades of Steel by Konami was superior to Nintendo’s offering, which was cartoony. The version above had permission to use … Continue reading

Aftermath of the tornado from last night

The blue line is where the government is sending drones to inspect the damage but the tornado(es) didn’t necessarily touch down. I’ll probably see some of it tomorrow when I got drive north to Round Rock to get my weekly … Continue reading

Meet my Mission Hill avatar or self?

I know what you’re thinking! You’re thinking, “What? How exactly is that you? You also look like a dirty Hippie! Is this some kind of fantasy?” The short answer is, NO. I despise Hippies since the majority were Boomers and … Continue reading

So much for concrete being a heat sink against tornadoes

I was going to write about some trivial bullshit which can wait until tomorrow or later because we just had an F2 touch down about two miles north of my house, around 6:30 PM CDT US. Pretty frightening as you … Continue reading

1922: USS Langley commissioned, the first US aircraft carrier

It’s a good thing the US finally got rolling on the shape of things to come even though other parts of the War Department, White House and Congress were getting pissed off at General Billy Mitchell (father of the US … Continue reading

My arguments about DST got partial traction!

Well…if you read the article from the most trusted publication these days, The Guardian, it seems the US Senate is oddly in agreement to making DST permanent, which I think it should be. As depressing as it is getting up and … Continue reading
