    Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day.

    So far my February break has been remodeling. Either physically remodeling, as in painting my downstairs or digital remodeling as in updating my websites. Now that I have my business site just like I want it, I decided to play around with my personal blog. My new current theme is set up to mimic a social media platform. I can even post updates right from the website, no need to open WordPress. Not 100% sold on this, but I want to play around with the post types for a few days to see what I think.

    Snowy start to February break. Started the day shoveling in the predawn hours so my wife could get to work. Rest of today will be occupied with painting a ceiling and obsessively checking my new newsletter stats. If you’re curious here’s this week’s subject line –

    Full disclosure, I am a pretty big Marvel fan, so I am already predisposed to be interested in the new Captain Marvel. But still. Have you guys seen the official website? This is pure 90s interwebs gold! #MustSee https://www.marvel.com/captainmarvel

    I know a lot of people complained when Flickr announced it’s reboot, but that is what ironically got me interested in the site. Companies need to be profitable and I want a site where I can pay to use it rather than having my data mined and sold off. https://www.flickr.com/people/38988545@N06/

    Watching back-to-back guilty pleasures this afternoon while sipping whiskey and recovering from a nasty head cold. First, I saw Constantine, and now the original John Wick. I’m not a huge Keanu Reeves fan, but I’ll watch these two films just about anytime I see them on.

    Snow day reading: American Gods, the graphic novel edition. Story is holding up exceedingly we’ll, and the artwork is amazing.

    I know I am late to the party, but I finally watched ANNIHILATION this afternoon. Like INTERSTELLAR and ARRIVAL, this one will be floating around in my head for a while. Excellent film with a few really good scares thrown in for good measure.

    Tonight’s viewing: The House that Dripped Blood, 1971 from Amicus, staring Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing. Solid horror anthology. Lots of atmosphere.
