The series is incredible, not least for simply being watchable. When I finished the film I thought it was great but had had enough of it. A few masterful tweaks, and I can't get enough of it. Not fixing faults, just adapting to the medium.

See you, space cowboy.

Dream team right there.

Apparently they wrote a full script beforehand, but didn’t show it to any of the actors.

That’s good to hear about the tv show.

I loved Just City but was a bit skeptical about trilogising it. Now, will I get another paperback or split the series across paper and kindle ...

On Leckie, am reading Ancillary Mercy now, and it seems to have turned from Space Roman Empire into Space Girls Boarding School With Guns. Which is not all bad, but the she said she said she thinks she really likes you is starting to tell.

My previous MP (before I moved), while being a right-winger, Brexiter wanker, seems very keen on decriminalisation - nay even legalisation/regulation. I've forgotten what my point was.

Holy crap, good for you. Are you following a particular training program? No wonder you are running daily to work with kit.

Not following a specific training plan by TheophileEscargot (4.00 / 1) #9 Wed Aug 07, 2019 at 07:15:09 AM EST
Just a long run at the weekend, and a mixture of easy runs and interval sessions in the week. I was gradually increasing the long run every week and got up to 39km... then my wife started needing to go away and had to give up on the long runs for a while. Just hoping I can up the distance in the remaining time fast enough to get back to long distances, but without injuring myself.

Bullshit Jobs by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #10 Wed Aug 07, 2019 at 05:10:09 PM EST
my current role as an IT financial portfolio manager is the definition of a bullshit job.
