sgeorge picked up a used Xbox One and Halo 5 yesterday. Just got past the first mission.

This game has more ham than a Christmas dinner!

- The dumpster fire burns bright, nationally and at work.

- I'm recovering from losing my voice.

- 3D printer is on hold until shipping madness settles down.

    Your argument is against that particular breed of liberal, the sheltered college undergrad.

If I had a dollar for every "general strike" poster I saw plastered in our downtown district...

Sgeorge and I have played minecraft games where I host on my linux box and she played on her windows 'puter. It's a tradition when work gets snowed out.

    I cared about which faction I chose in NV. I made a POINT to embrace the NCR, even with it's faults, over the Legion. In FO4, I don't really give a damn who I'm fighting, or why.

I threw away a 20 hour save because I'd made some wrong choices near the start of NV. I gave up on FO4 when the main plot point resolved itself before the factions hashed things out.

In NV, it's an option to be a faction unto yourself. In FO4, I was more or less limited to amassing a buttload of power armor and pretending.

I actually really appreciate that Poweramor isn't everywhere in this game. Seemed like FO4 wouldn't let you visit three locations without tripping over a set.

I'm playing Fallout New Vegas. Which is good. The environment isn't as great as FO4, but the game itself? Way way better. I'm actually planning on playing all of the DLC for this one. I haven't done that since Skyrim.

I'm also struggling with wine to get FO4 to launch so I can play that after I beat NV.

The landscape is definitely changing. It's quiet, but something does seem to be happening. At the very least, Red shaming stopped being an effective firewall while no one was paying attention.

Lee Carter sang Solidarity Forever to celebrate victory. The Democrats are still busy rending themselves apart, and that opens the door to the left hijacking more of their ballot lines.

election night

Locally, two of the three city council candidates I supported won. The one I was most excited about managed to net herself a four year term. Went from being the fourth place vote getter in the primary to second in the general.

Less locally?

    I say all of this to say that while I have not identified as a democratic socialist in the past, I would be honored to have the support of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. To me, being a socialist means acknowledging, confronting, and demanding reparations for social inequalities in no uncertain terms.

The district judge candidate who wrote that?

Fucking won.

Lee Carter, one of the people politico used for their "Could America’s Socialists Become the Tea Party of the Left?" bit?

Fucking won.

It's not all riding coat tails of the Democratic party either. Ginger Jentzen straight up ran on the Socialist Alternative ballot line and did pretty damn well.

I don't run, but I do venture into the local running shops from time to time.

They are aggressively nice people. I'd absolutely join their group runs if that was my thing.

I confess, I tend to check up on all ya'll's profile pages whenever I notice that string.
