    In other news...

    The picture shows roughly a quarter of the Vegas Valley. To put it to some sort of scale, major streets are generally about a mile apart, so each of those boxes of yellow lights would be about a mile on a side.

    I'm firmly in the city dweller camp. Oh, I've lived in small towns, but I just like the variety of stuff that's available in a city. (My house would be fairly close to the middle of this picture).

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    The Running Man - Set in the dystopian future of 2017, the authoritarian government engages in "fake news" and "reality" entertainment to control the population. The most popular show, "The Running Man", is a reality show where those accused of crimes by the state can play for their lives, and the possibility of a trial by jury, or even an acquittal. Stars two future state governors, and features dance choreography by Paula Abdul. --streamed on Amazon Prime. Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker - pretty much what it says on the tin, features Mark Hamill as the voice of the Joker, in addition to the normal cast of the TV series. --streamed on Amazon Prime.
  4. My biggest problem is that I'm not really exercising enough. I already watch my intake of pasta, rice, and breads, and too much fat in my diet creates problems with some of my medications.

    The "Nice Happy" Thread

    Jury duty was today. After waiting in the hallway for a longish time, we were brought into the court room for the Judge to thank us for our service, and that the (criminal) case had ended in a plea bargain, so we were being released. In theory, I shouldn't be called again for at least the next 18 months, but I firmly expect to be called sometime around the 2 year mark.
  6. My place of employment provides meals in the Employee Dining Room, which I would count as eating out, and I may have either take-out or restaurant (sit down or fast food) a few more times in a typical week. Take-out like pizza or Asian food generally lasts for several meals over several days. I don't cook like I used to, mainly because there's no one else here to eat it*. Many meals are either pre-prepared, or simple preparation. I don't really have any dietary restrictions (beyond watching my fat and sugar intake). *My late house-mate was an extremely big eater. My normal amounts of cooking used to last us a couple of days, but the same amount now would require me to freeze most of it to eat later. I've mentioned a pasta recipe that ended up taking me a month to eat, pulling one frozen container out each week for several meals.

    Today's Dumb Criminal Story ...

    It comes in different forms now, like polar fleece, and is the primary material in plastic soda bottles.

    Are we too hard on Wil Wheaton?

    When I was very young, my parents and I traveled around the US in a Volkswagen camper. We had spent about 2 weeks making our way through Texas, when one of the locals mentioned to my Mom, "When you die, you can either go to Texas, or to hell." After a moment's pause, my Mom replied, "Well, I've already seen Texas."

    I made it through about 15 minutes of Netflix's new version of Lost in Space, before deciding that I wanted to watch something else. There's very little tension in the Robinsons being in a life or death situation 10 minutes in, when you know that there's 9 more full episodes after this one.
  11. Abbey Road, followed by Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017 5.1 mix).

    Are we too hard on Wil Wheaton?

    I was on the main casino floor one day, when a power chair went by. There was a plank between the footrests, and a chihuahua was riding it as if it was the figurehead on a ship's prow. Since we technically only allow service animals in the building, I've often wondered if it was acting as some kind of navigator for the chair. A different time, I saw a mobility scooter whip by at high speed, and then another came around the corner and tried to pass it. All I could think of was Mario Cart.
  14. Back in 2011, Yes released Fly From Here, an album based upon a 23 minute work that actually predated Horn and Downes joining Yes. Horn produced the album, but didn't sing on it for various personal reasons. In 2016, drummer Alan White suggested to Horn that he should re-record the vocals, as it would then be the second Yes album with the same lineup as Drama. The result was recently released as Fly From Here-Return Trip, and it features Horn's vocals, with very slightly altered arrangements. My copy arrived today, and I'm really enjoying it.
