Baba yaga ghanoush

This week I watched a heap more television than I usually do. Highlights include (and, tbh, are limited to):

  • A bunch of Adventure Time,” because sleep, FTW!
  • Netflix’s IO.” It was interesting. More of a meditation than a narrative. Not as sci-fi as I had hoped. Indie AF.
  • Watched episode 2, season 2 of Star Trek Discovery.” It was very good. Its vibe was heaps Start Trek-y. Perhaps even peak Star Trek-y! It was as heady as the best episodes of TNG, while maintaining a modern sensibility (e.g. it was wicked watchable).

Beside rotting my brain on beautiful moving images, I also got to host the first meeting for the D&D group I’ve been invited to GM! I’m wicked excited…mostly because I’m a giant dork and love tabletop roleplaying games a lot, also because it is a weird honor to be invited to GM by a group of mostly strangers.

The big” non-work related task of the week has been migrating my website off of WebFaction (grrr) and onto blot.im (HOORAY!). Blot…still wicked good.

This week we also welcomed a 12.9″ iPad Pro into our family. It is gorgeous. It replaces Tova’s 5ish year old MacBook Air. She is very proud of it and very pleased.

Now I will eat. I made Baba ghanoush. I love Baba ghanoush. Aubergine is a more fitting name than Eggplant.” What is eggy about this plant? Surely its most striking feature is its color and not its eggyness. 🍆

Here is a song called Aubergine that I think is v. good.

I just saw that the series finale to Adventure Time is airing this evening (or perhaps already has aired). I’m a few seasons behind at this point, but am sad to see the show come to a close, but also glad it had such a great run. Watching the show was weirdly transformative for me while in school. I’m excited to be able to share it with my son one day, and wicked inspired by the sea-change the show helped prompt in animation.
