Topher on needs to be taken care of by Alpha. This Topher guy is annoying AF.

The FBI agent in needs to get a briefcase or even a backpack so that he stops carrying files around flashing them for everyone to see.

Apple TV Plus us going to be a hard sell at $9.99/mo and only having a launch lineup of five shows. Especially when it's going up against Disney+.

Well that was quick. Elbow scrapped. 

Nintendo has some work to do to make their consoles less like they came out of the 90s. This transfer process is inefficient.

When I got a a new Xbox One, it was basically signing into my Xbox account and all setting were ready. When I installed a game, the saves were synced from the cloud. No fuss at all. I could even move the USB harddrrive from the other Xbox over and not have to download games again.

The good news is that scientists agree AQ is not fixed – it can be developed...three elements can help provide a framework: keeping an open mind, so you see the world with fresh eyes and remain open to possibilities; keeping an open heart, so you can try to see any situation through another person’s eyes; and keeping an open will, letting go of identity and ego to sit with the discomfort of the unknown.

Tonight's movie was Overlord (2018). I don't know what to make of this film, but there's one thing that I know, it was surprisingly entertaining. The story feels like it came out of a videogame -- Wolfenstein anyone? The mashup of two genres that I usually don't watch, WWII plus Horror, was what got me curious about the movie. It turns out the mashup was enough to let the filmmakers go wild with the premise -- which led to such an entertaining film.

We still have a Barnes and Noble for our area -- two actually. I like to visit them, but they need help. Their pricing is ridiculously high and the stores feel old. I don't want them to go away though since there are no other bookstores left (thanks Amazon).

So, here is hoping the new owners can breath some new life into Barnes and Noble and turn the place around.
