I get that I’m years late to this party, but last week I started playing BioShock and OMG it’s amazing. And it scares the crap out of me.

Oh yeah, this year I also read ”House of X”/”Powers of X”. Thanks The Incomparable.

On reading and (not) being a reader (anymore)

I still have a hard time to reconcile the fact that reading fiction, that was such a large part of my identity as a child and a teen, is something that I do so rarely these days. Part of that is how slowly I get through even books I really love from authors that are among my favourites.

Case in point, William Gibson and his ”Blue Ant Trilogy”. According to my Reading page I read Pattern Recognition in 2013 and now, in august 2020, I finished Zero History. I really like Gibson and this trilogy has been a blast but still it’s taking my seven years to get through.

I wonder how much time I’ve spent browsing timelines and listening to people going on and on about the same things in podcasts during those same seven years.

That being said, this year might be a bit different. As I said, I’ve just finished Pattern Recognition but I’m also half-way through a bunch of books, some audio books some paper/Kindle books. I occasionally actually manages to convince myself to read a bit for pure pleasure. That makes me happy.

The quality of Westworld season 3 episodes vary a lot. The other day I watched episode 4 (”The Mother of Exiles”) which was a really good one. Tonight #5 (”Genre”) which might have been the first truly bad episode of Westworld.

I need to stop blogging now, take a shower and go to bed.

Replied to An Instagram bug showed a ‘camera on’ indicator for iOS 14 devices even when users weren’t taking photos by an author (The Verge)

An Instagram spokesperson said the company is fixing the bug. The app’s Create Mode is accessible from the Instagram camera which could set off the camera indicator, and a user swiping into the camera from their Feed may also trip it up.

This is bad Instagram. Really bad.
