Keeping things alive on the blog with some things, until I get back around to actually writing my backlog of posts. Enjoy :)
Equilibrium ArmageddonSo, here I am, minding my own business and getting ready to do a little kitchen cleaning. I pop open Google Play Music, and I'm informed that Equilibrium has a new album. If you know them, you know them. Technical, oddly upbeat German folk death metal. So far, the album is pretty damn good. I'll have to give it a few more rounds, though, to really get a feel for what's going on here. Check it out.

This is turning out to be a harder post than I thought. First, I started the post. Then I edited it on my phone. Then I completed it on my Chromebook. Then I opened blogger on my phone which happened to have a previous incomplete version which fucking overwrote the completed one. Then a partial page load stuck the content of the partial post in to this post, and just totally slaughtered everything. Oh, well. Back to the drawing board. I’ll try to reproduce this as close to the original as possible. Lesson learned. Blogger app and Blogger site do not play nicely together.

Then, one day last month (stop me if you've heard the story before) I was out shopping for helmets and my wife convinced me to try on an extremely brightly colored yellow jacket. It was light, it was comfy, she liked it, and I decided to go for it. I figured I'd like it well enough, but I didn't expect liking it quite so much. I'm completely hooked on this thing, and I'm missing my black leather a little less by the day.
