Fitness Running

Number 9

This past weekend I finished my 9th (closing in on those double digits!) marathon and first one in 2 years. Lemme tell you, it felt like my first one in 2 years. It was grueling and I’m still so glad I was able to manage it after the wreckage that has been this pandemic. Ever week that got closer I was racked with self-doubt if I was still trained up enough to run it. My time was not was what it was before, and I will happily accept that as I gain a footing again. Ready for more punishment in New York (NYC BABYEEE) in a few weeks.

Minneapolis remains one of my absolute favorite races and cities. Hands down the prettiest race I’ve done to date.

A thing I did

Hey, I haven’t been just ignoring this page, looking at the long list of things I have to do and not writing anything.

No, no. Perish the thought.

What I *have* been doing though is working on this presentation I gave to some people on behalf of Greater Lafayette Indivisible. I developed this first (and maybe not last) to give an intro to, but wide ranging, view of dis/misinformation, conspiracy theory, and media.

It was hard to chop it down to the length I did if only because each part feeds upon itself. It’s really hard to talk about any individual part of that and not talk about the systems which influence and govern its trajectory.

That’s all to say, it would be cool if you checked it out. I’m proud of what came of it, and I’m already thinking about how part two might look.

Video Games


First one!

While I finish writing up a couple longer form entries, let’s talk about what I am doing recently. I am attempting to step into a newish realm. Solo-streaming. I’ve had some fits and starts, but I think I have everything in place to make it happen this time.

In that effort, I’ve started all the subsequent channels and whatnot. I’ve done two(!) streams thus far with minimal technical issues (there will always be technical problems).

Firstly, go shoot me a follow at and sub to the new channel where I’ll post the VODs

I’m working on coming up with a schedule for streams that focus on three pillars that cover the parts of gaming I’m interested in. A day for newish games. This covers anything that’s been released in the past decade or so, but mostly newer stuff. A day to play fighting games. This past year or so I’ve delved deeper into the FGC and I just really enjoy playing them and highlighting cool stuff from the community. And finally my first love, retro games. My stream setup is basically devoted to making these look amazing on modern displays and captures. This will cover basically any old console, or PC (this might actually be the first retro play). Honestly, this could probably be the whole channel, but I rarely sit down and play through old titles. This is my chance.

So, with that tenative outline, check my social media stuff for when I am going to stream as I hammer out a more definite schedule. Tim and Matt Play is still going to be going on, so join us for that, too!
