What to do aside from worry...



Dark, two seasons, on Netflix. In German with subtitles, but so worth the extra attention. The best elaborately plotted scifi series I've seen since Fringe.

Really enjoyed Dark. I just binged Giri/Haji last weekend, highly recommended. Nice blend of East meets West with a great ending.

My 15 year old daughter did some practice driving in a large cemetery today, so I had them drop me
off to geek out on dates. Too many folks were gathered in the real old grave stones, so i just wandered around the the edge of the 1800's ones. I know 1800's isn't that old when it comes
to graveyards- but this is Southern California.

After the practice drive, we took the kids up to Holy Jim canyon-
Some other folks had the same idea.

Think I recognize the place. If I'm right it's where Jelly Roll Morton is buried.

I had to look up jelly roll Morton- I was right down the street from the Orange circle- Fairhaven cemetery.
Jelly roll is buried in LA according to what I read.

I shouldn't have jumped to that conclusion, Samsome. Apparently the style of grave marker seen in your photos is more common that I assumed.

Out to Land's End in the afternoon- pretty busy, but mosyty people observed Social Distancing, and only a few face masks.








In the evening, Tiger King! Highly recommend.

Now whisky and Fallout 4.

Man, Fallout 4 just didn't do it for me the way 3 and New Vegas did. I don't think I ever ended up finishing the main story because it didn't really grab my attention like the 3 and NV.
To me New Vegas is one of the best games of all time. The story, characters, complete blank slate giving you free rein to take the plot in whatever direction you want topped with solid fun gameplay.
I've probably played through that campaign 3 times for the different endings.

 Broark- I’ve heard that a lot, seems to be a common critique of 4 that it is more rigid than NV and 3, and I agree, your choices don’t seem to make tons of difference to your play though plot wise except where the radioactive hole ends up on the map.
 For me the graphics of 4 and the addictive build function make 4 a classic and one of my most played through games of all time, after resident evils 1-4.
 But the shelter in place is long, so maybe it’s a good time to stack it up against the previous 2 and see how they compare again...

speaking of resident evil, the RE3 remake is set to launch April 4- still inside the shelter in place, probably well inside it, could it be the best selling RE game of all time, with that unforeseen help?
