Increase the good, and then decrease the bad. In that order.
Been working on joining my WordPress site up to the Indieweb, and it’s rekindling my enthusiasm for the web. http://indieweb.org/wordpress
If you want to experience the state of the art in loud guitar music, go see Mastodon live.
There’s something you can learn from everyone when you pay attention. Watch not only what someone says, but also how they say it. If you disagree with someone’s point of view, there’s even more to learn.
Very quick update… After Bangkok we spent a couple of nights in Chiang Mai where we rode some elephants. It was tourist craziness but still fun.
After Chiang Mai we headed to the beach of Phuket and then Ko Phi Phi. We’re now rejuvenated for our trek to the jungle of Khao Sok.
I’ve always been a sucker for those ‘end of the world as we know it, everyone has to work together against all odds’ movies. I’ll never forgot how I felt the first time I saw Red Dawn, and Stephen King’s The Stand was one of the first not-just-for-kids books I read outside of what I was assigned to read in school. The Day After Tomorrow takes place in a world where the Earth has been suddenly thrown into a second ice age and a few small groups of people have to survive in the harsh arctic environment. That pretty much sums it up plot-wise so if that doesn’t grab you, don’t bother seeing it. If that does interest you, it also has some very nice cinematography and special effects (probably mostly the latter) and you can’t beat seeing Los Angeles destroyed in just a few minutes.
