I get that Trump is a dullard, but not because he won't start every war Bolton wants him to start. 

I then read Woodward's book on Trump. It was fine. It has the same problems of proportion that the last bajillion Woodward books have had. 

I finished all that up with Mary Trump's book, and boooy howdy is that a depressing read -- it lays out a structure of emotional and verbal abuse that both led to Donald Trump being who he is and the demise of his older brother, who the Trump family essentially neglected to death. It is both informative and also deeply unpleasant. 

Man, that must have been brutal to read all of those back to back.

Re-watched Californication, loved Immigration Nation and Stateless on Neftlix, and now re-watching Handmaids Tale on Hulu. HBO and Frontline recently had a series about fake news,

Also re-listened to It Could Happen Here by Robert Evans, and now listening to his new podcast the Worst Year Ever.

Not reading anything worthwhile.

I did break out my old miniatures and did some things :




Tried my hand at scratch building. Only the turret but was quite happy with how it turned out.


We got some old school Necromunda going. Just some basic 4v4 but she's pretty good at it.


Still original "2nd Edition" Necromunda, I haven't ..... found a copy of the updated one yet.

Whale, I can dig that song.

This Bob Dylan song has been stuck in my head for some time. I had no idea it was from 2012. I thought he was dead.

I was listening to a lot of Hank Williams at the beginning of the long stretch of isolation and working from home. 

Then last week I stumbled into this great playlist of obscure vinyl singles from that weird stretch between 50's western hillbilly music, just as the genre was going electric, and very early Memphis rockabilly. 

Songs like this have been stuck in my head ever since.

Finished out Shameless and Ozark.

Homeland, Better Call Saul, and watched the The Report. Everyone involved in the CIA's torture program need to burn in hell.

Binged this on your recommendation . . . it was awesome. 

Currently binging some older shows that I wanted to see again.  (Stargate SG1, Chuck, The Mentalist and just finished Justified.)

That new Watchmen series on HBO is quite good.

Jelly on the Knopfler front. I'd love to see him live.

Been playing a lot of Destiny 2 on PC, but that's been sitting on the back burner for a bit until the new expansion releases. So I've been doing some tinkering on the car, instead. Haven't really watched any TV/netflix/whatever other than when eating, so I don't have any good recommendations there. Haven't even finished Rick and Morty S3.

It's so good. 

I laugh every time that dude yells BAT! while transforming, and it's not at all explained why he does that and none of the others do.

Also I am playing a lot of Mario Maker 2. If anyone has any levels, share them and I will play them.

I'm reading a history book about the Revolutionary War, because I realized over the summer that other than "There was a battle at Yorktown and Cornwallis surrendered" and "George Washington crossed the Delaware river I think on Christmas?" I know absolutely nothing about it.
