, a fast-paced space opera by Alastair Reynolds with strong women as protagonists and few surprises certainly took my mind off things for a bit. Worldbuilding galore takes place in Revenger's galaxy, a place littered with the detritus of humanity and other species.

As anyone that's been kicking around here for the past few years knows, I love the Nintendo Switch—not so much for its new games, although I do . For me, the Switch is the ultimate port machine. As I do the majority of my work on a slowly dying early 2015 13" MacBook Pro Retina laptop, it's reasonable to say that I haven't been set up to play the majority of PC, PS4 and Xbox titles that have come down the pike, these past five years. Happily, My Switch is allowing me to catch up. I'm in the middle of The Witcher III right now. I've been playing a bit of the Metro series (which is great in handheld mode) on and off and, Good lord: Mario Kart. Yes, it's a Nintendo original, but I never had a pal who owned a Nintendo U to play it with. Now's m.

I'm not a huge fan of the way that a number of networks have been splitting the seasons of their most popular shows, right down the middle. It's one thing to be thrilled and frustrated by an end-of-season cliffhanger, Knowing that there's another good chunk of episodes that you'll have to wait six months to see before that cliffhanger is even on the horizon. That's a depressing level of bullshit. That said, I can't stay mad at Rick & Morty. With the final five episodes of the show's fourth season getting ready to pop in May, I'm preparing myself to forgive its show-runners for the long, painful wait.

I just read and are shaking hands and such to stick it to the libs. Then I saw this video of an angry man licking a window because he was annoyed by a coronavirus-related restriction. "Fuck you, cunt!". Word and image, complementing one another perfectly.

is reporting that Adam Schlesinger, co-founder of Fountains of Wayne, and a prolific songwriter for film, television, and theater, has died of COVID-10. He was 52-years-old. Schlesinger had one of the most unique and busiest careers in pop. With Fountains of Wayne — a group that blended power-pop delight with indie and alt-rock sensibilities — he released five albums between 1996 and 2011. During the same period, he released six albums with his other group, Ivy, all the while building a portfolio of TV and film music. His first hit came in 1996, but it was a song engineered to sound like it was actually from the Sixties: “That Thing You Do.” The track served as the sole hit for the Wonders, the fake band at the center of Tom Hanks’ film Tha.

When I started seeing all of the posts on social media (and ) about "pandemic baking," it made instant and perfect sense to me. But then, I started seeing people asking "why?" on Facebook and Twitter . My first thought was "this is clearly a question from non-bakers." If you've baked bread with any regularity, I bet you know why. The next thing I thought of was this piece I wrote for my 2014 book, . In it, I talk about my time as a baker, living in a commune in my youth, and another apocalyptic event, a massive snow-in in 2010, that left me trapped alone in my house with dwindling food stocks. So, I decided to share this story here. TL;DR: Bake some bread. It's hands-on, can be grounding, therapeutic, and fresh-baked bread is one of life's

And today the second book, Ghostly Thief of Time, is also available for download. Free.

$5,179 was earned last week at the United States box office. Not $5.179m, not $51.79k, but just over five thousand dollars . It's the worst week in history for the American theater industry, due to coronavirus restrictions and company policies that all but ended public movie attendance. Okay, did some math. A movie ticket was ~35¢ in the 40s, which means collectively all theatres in America would only need to sell 14.5k tickets in a week to clear $5100. So now I'm thinking probably the box office hasn't been this low since the late 20s. — Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman). A silver lining, perhaps: most movies on general release were shunted immediately to television-on-demand, and gave .

If you’ve ever had any musical aspirations -- or even if your talent extends no further than turning on the radio -- you’ve probably dreamed the “impossible” dream. You dream that maybe you could record some of your songs at home, post them online, build an armada of fan support, attract major label attention and ultimately become a global music powerhouse all in one fell swoop. Look, it’s an unlikely dream, but it isn’t impossible. That’s the career arc that now 17-year-old Billie Eilish just rode to pop megastardom last year. And what program did she (and her brother-slash-producer Finneas O’Connell) use to capture and edit Billie’s now chart-topping tracks? The Mac-based app is just one of the programs that has taken music production fro.

You've probably received spam emails inviting you to join class action lawsuits against the makers of over-the-counter heartburn medicine Zantac (ranitidine) as it contains a likely carcinogen. Today, the US Food and Drug Administration requested that all ranitidine products be pulled from store shelves and that consumers properly dispose of any they've already purchased. You should expect even more Zantac class action spam. From :. The FDA noted that an ongoing investigation has determined that levels of a contaminant in the heartburn medications increase over time and when stored at higher-than-normal temperatures, poses a risk to public health. The contaminant, N-nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA, is a probable human carcinogen and the FDA has.
