I Can’t Stand Hype Culture

Something that I’ve been wanting to discuss for quite some time is the phenomena of hype being built up around seemingly anything and everything new.  Whenever you have something new coming up, you hear about it nonstop, and often times, in retrospect, you have to ask: why did anyone care in the first place? It …

The First Black Friday I Didn’t Have To Work In Years

Today was the day after Thanksgiving, a day well known here in the States, as well as other countries, as “Black Friday”, traditionally the day that the holiday season properly begins. While this traditional identity is a complete load, with seasonal items and music being present as early as late October in some situations, this …

Spin Street Is Closing

I think it’s safe to say most people in Memphis at least know of Spin Street – even if they haven’t shopped there before, it’s impossible to travel past the Poplar and Highland intersection and not notice the giant signs advertising the store, the posters along the windows, the giant Elvis standee above the entrance …

I Ain’t Dead Yet – An Update

The past 2 days have been quite inactive for a good reason – I’ve been quite ill! I don’t say this to alarm anyone, but for the sake of clarity and giving readers a slice into my life. This is a personal website, right? To keep a long story short, from early Thursday until late …

2 Weeks With The SNES Classic Edition

As the title suggest, I’ve had the SNES Classic Edition for about 2 weeks. That’s been enough time, along with my work schedule and Xadara stuff, to manage to complete everything on Super Mario World and to play all the way through Earthbound. Sure, I’ve touched on a few things – unlocked Star Fox 2 …

The Graphene Theme 2.0 Killed My Website!

Seems like every few months I have something happen with this site that makes me have to either nuke a feature, or go into some kind of emergency “find an old version and throw it on the server” moment. Previously, an update to my podcast management software of choice wound up no longer working with …

How Terrible Fans Ruined Space For Me

Ever since I was a child, I absolute adored space, both the idea of the place, the planets, moons, stars, and other things out there, and the exploration of it – rockets, missiles, men on the Moon, I couldn’t get enough of it! I’ve been learning what I can about these subjects for literally as …

We Have Burnout – Hostility In The Space And Rocketry Online Community

Cutting straight to the point, I’m somewhat burnt out right now – namely, with regards to SpaceX, space subjects in general, and a few other things. Reading comment after comment on the SpaceX front has certainly been a chore, having to see them mentioned in every single space related subject ever is itself quite annoying, …

One Year Ago I Discovered The Cult Of SpaceX

If you had asked my opinion of SpaceX on Septmeber 26th, 2016, I would have told you that I loved them, and that I was excited and happy to see posts relating to their projects, launches, and the like. If you ask me today, I’ll tell you I still like the company, and some of …

How To Survive The Apocalypse Without Really Trying

In case you missed it, Saturday, September 23rd was the end of the world! Not that you could tell by the fact that not a single thing has changed at all. Oh, wait, I’m sorry, it looks like the nut job who predicted doomsday has gone back on it, instead now saying that Saturday was …
