The Risa summer event is back on Star Trek Online! I think that the event goes until July, at which point Agents of Yesterday drops. Risa and the Winter Wonderland are both seasonal favorites of mine :-) As much as people look down upon playing "space barbie" (i.e. focusing on how your character and ship look instead of DPS), I am looking forward to rounding out the summer outfits for

A little something from a while back. I was introduced to this song almost 20 years ago this time of year..

Nice! There is a follow up...of some sort, for the game Watchdogs. It seems that this game is not following the story of Aidan Pierce, the protagonist of the first Watchdogs. It also isn't taking place in Chicago, but rather it takes place in San Fransisco. I think I'll have a ton of games to play once I am done dissertating if this keeps up ;-)

In my quest to stay current with music, world music, I am looking at top 40 from around the world and randomly picking songs to sample.From the Italian Charts: Maître Gims - Est-ce que tu m'aimes ?Verdict: not bad. Don't quite get the French (need the lyrics to get acclimated to sung French). I'd listen to this again.From the US charts: Drake - One Dance (feat. Wizkid & Kyla)Verdict:
Jurassic Trek files: sibbling rivalry?
Hmmmm....(original archive here)
I know that this is meant to be a humorous news show, but this just is capitalist douchebaggery at its finest. If a company is writing off their debt, that should be it. It should not be resold (with personal identifying information) to just anyone who can create a debt buying company.
Stargate Atlantis comic out!
A while back, on Kickstarter, I had seen a campaign to fund a continuation of Stargate: Atlantis. I was intrigued, but the campaign had already ended. The other day, while browsing the sci-fi section of my local comic book store, I saw the first issue of this comic out. I don't generally buy comics in their "floppy" form, and I opt instead of buying collections that are more in book

It's been an interesting experiment using the Motorola Razr as my daily driver, however with the lack of being able to just search the internet the phone didn't really do it for me (despite the satisfying "clack" you hear when you flip it closed). I was looking on the web and I decided to buy a refurbished Nokia N8 to keep me going a bit until I find an android phone which I like.The N8 was
이정현 - 아리아리 (Lee Jung Huyn - Ari Ari)
I think to start my #musicrewind tag I'll go with the theme of KPOP. Back when I was working for Media Services (1999ish) many of my co-workers (and later employees) were Vietnamese. Music that they played came from Vietnam, and a lot of the music they listened to was Vietnamese ballad-y type of music. However, some of them did listed to music that I tended to listen to (dance,
