My new favorite place in San Jose is Excess Solutions where they sell used surplus electronics.
I broke a terminal on my receiver and this is my crude attempt at a repair.
Looking for recommendations on where to stay in Portland for a couple of days in September. Also, if there is anything I should checkout while I’m there.

🍿 Black Widow (2021) directed by Cate Shortland
★★★★ – It might be because I’ve missed going to the movies so much, but this could be the best Marvel movie I’ve seen in a while. Scarlett and Florence were so great together!
I visited Point Bonita for the first time last weekend. The lighthouse wasn’t accessible so I’ll have to go back when that’s open again.
🎥 Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) directed by Céline Sciamma
★★★★½ – I know I’m late to the party on this one, but wow. That was incredible.
It’s been a rough 24 hours due to an unexpected power outage at home. Oh, the joys of self-hosting…
I turned Taylor Swift’s era stickers into miniature cardboard cutouts for my desk. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.

92. Goodfellas (1990) directed by Martin Scorsese
★★★★½ — I’ll never watch Home Alone the same way again. Joe Pesci is absolutely terrifying. 🎥
93. The French Connection (1971) directed by William Friedkin
★★★★ — My favorite fact about it is that Popeyes Chicken is named after Gene Hackman’s character from the film. 🎥
On Friday I drove up to the Lick Observatory located on Mount Hamilton. Most of it was closed to the public so I’ll definitely be going back once things are opened up again.
94. Pulp Fiction (1994) directed by Quentin Tarantino
★★★★½ — Easily my favorite Tarantino. It also has one of my all-time favorites lines: “Aww man, I shot Marvin in the face.” 🎥
95. The Last Picture Show (1981) directed by Peter Bogdanovich
★★★★ — The performances made it worth it, especially by Leachman and Johnson. 🎥🍿
Saturday in the Park with Kyle. 📷
Are we still using Keybase now that it is owned by Zoom?
I can’t get over this photo from the Perseverance landing. They literally dropped a car onto a foreign planet using a rocket powered crane. 📷 by NASA
One my favorite spacecrafts is the Mars Pathfinder rover that landed on Mars in 1997. Today, I will be excitedly watching NASA and JPL attempt to land Perseverance onto our closest neighbor. I love space!
