Some interesting links for this month:

I’m not saying that many of these tools, apps, and other technologies are not hugely convenient. But in a sense, they run counter to who we are as human beings.

Monthly recap (August 2017)

Some train tracks from Ikea

Highlight:

Went for a 5K run. Very slow, and a sore afterwards, but the first run of any sort after a year.

Minor updates:

  • Tara’s daycare was closed for three days, and we went to Happy Hollows and the Children’s Discovery Museum on a non-weekend

Watched/read:

  • Had a movie date with my wife and saw “Baby Driver”, one of the most amazing movies in a long time.
  • Saw “Kong, Skull Island”, which I initially thought would be just another B-grade “monster movie”, but turned out to be surprisingly better.
  • Finished the Hobbit trilogy (not bad!)
  • Finally watched Jodorowsky’s Dune (had been putting it off for about five years)
