Vent: A blog, of sorts.
Kick names, take ass.
Looks like gelfling. Smells like Gelfling.

Loved Age of Resistance.

It’s hard to do a prequel when you know where it ends up, but this did it well. It also hints at a larger world than the one we knew. Jen and Kira might not have been the last gelflings after all.

Mandalorian Fan Service

The trailer for The Mandalorian is out. It looks like the Star Wars movie we should have gotten.
It isn’t about Skywalkers. It isn’t about a galaxy spanning war(although there is evidence of one). IG-88 makes an appearance.

Is this fan-service? If so, is that a bad thing?
On its own, I think it’s good, but Disney has a way of sprinkling fan service around to get us to eat shit.
I want to believe this will be good. This time will be better.
I feel like I’m in an abusive relationship.

Everybody is Faking It

The place I work for started developing websites. I’m on the web team.
We use wordpress. Everyone uses plugins for everything, even for simple things like a sticky menu.

I’m the only one on the team that even touches the FTP or the database.

I know that I don’t know enough. My JavaScript skills are basic. My PHP skills are a bit less than that. The only things I’m strong in are HTML and CSS.
Everyone else thinks we know plenty. In fact, my old boss left and started his own company building websites with zero coding knowledge.

I don’t think I could be that dishonest.

Holy Crap- Documentary Now
Archimago at 12-28-2016 4:55 am
I just discovered this. I love documentaries.
Apparently, so do Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers. They make parodies of famous documentaries that are straight up love letters to the originals. They are incredibly dry and unless you are familiar with the originals, most of the humor will be lost. Still, there isn't one that hasn't made me laugh out load at least once.
My must watch list so far:
Parker Gail's location is Everything. It's a spoof of Spaulding Gray's Swimming to Cambodia.
Juan Likes Rice and Chicken. A spoof of Hiro Dreams of Sushi.
Kanu Uncovered: A spoof of Nanook of the North.
