It's almost all on Netflix, just added this year in 2 big chunks. Maddeningly, the final 2 hour episode is missing out of the bunch.

It's well worth the watch on Netflix, as you can binge big chunks. It really brings out how quickly the show changed and morphed, from the big changes after season 3, to the more mature subjects as the show went on.

I have two pairs of headphones, a pair of Harman Kardons and a pair of Grado headphones. I also use as pair of Sony studio monitors at work. The difference in each pair is incredibly different. Stepping up to a (much) nicer set of headphones is like going from 480p video to 4k video. The sound stage opens up and you can hear so much more that you didn't before. Once you get to the $500+ level of headphone though, as important as good headphones is a good headphone amplifier. The choices are numerous, but they all make a big difference in how music is presented.

That episode has forever burned itself into my brain. +1 for scarred for life fridge buddies.

My last favorite read was The Dog Stars by Peter Heller.

    Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life–something like his old life–exists beyond the airport. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return–not enough fuel to get him home–following the trail of the static-broken voice on the radio. But what he encounters and what he must face–in the people he meets, and in himself–is both better and worse than anything he could have hoped for.

I'm a sucker for post apocalypse fiction, and this was a hugely satisfying read.

The last book I read, The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber. A good read with a wholly unsatisfying ending in my opinion. The backstory to his writing it made the book more interesting for me though.

Hello fellow Kel'Thuzad US Alliance player! Been there since release, originally through The Goon Squad.

I haven't played much since around a month or so ago. Got into Diablo III for a bit and now GTA V, but I'm sure I'll rejoin the grind soon enough.
