I am reading a bunch of stuff right now, with several dozen things bookmarked and at least 45 items on one of my library cards.
I am reading chapter 3 of Junction Landlord, by Toronto activist and fellow York U alum Jessie Zimmerman.
I should be in chapter 2 of Dune Messiah but I haven’t checked in a while.
I started Noble House last month.
I’m trying to quickly start and finish Daisy Miller.
I believe I’m done reading the parts of Friedrich Nietzsche: A Philosophical Biography that I was interested in, specifically those about his university years and later professorship in Basel.
I have purchased the final available copy of Janice Kim’s To Live to Work: Factory Women in Colonial Korea, 1910-1945 that was on Amazon and I will read it once I receive it. Janice was my first professor at York University and has been a friend for over a decade.
I am reading Ontario labour law for one of my jobs.
I am always enticed to borrow a Toni Morrison novel from work, as we have a stylishly designed set. However, I always forget that I have a copy of Song of Solomon in a to read pile next to my desktop.
Bought a copy of The New Yorker after speaking to an associate at Chapters. Should’ve asked for her name.
>40 other books and movies in my room to read or to watch. I need another IKEA Billy shelf for these.
Michael Burnham and Cadet Tilly enjoyed one of my favourite dishes, breakfast burritos, just the way I like them—with extra salsa.
Lots of original Star Trek references, from the USS Enterprise, to the Constitution-class heavy cruiser, along with Sarek, Amanda Grayson, and Spock.
Admiral Katrina Cornwell’s ship was not shown, just mentioned.
The series is being more ambiguous with regards to the food slots… is it a replicator, a protein resequencer or a high-speed elevator?
A lot of the episode was filmed at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto… and on a day that I wasn’t there!
Stamets was pretty weird this episode. Probably some reference to “The Enemy Within,” except that his evil/aggressive/snarky self is trapped in his washroom’s mirror.
During a rewatch of the previous episode, “Choose Your Pain,” I have doubts about the fan theory that Ash Tyler is just Voq in disguise because, if so, then Ash’s/Voq’s fight with L’Rell would have been unnecessary… unless he was also brainwashed to believe that he was human as a sleeper agent. But given the traitor is still a traitor rule, e.g. Dune‘s Dr. Yueh, how can Voq believe that he can lead a unified Klingon Empire if he dishonours himself by becoming a human, as the Klingon augments were also dishonoured?
Also, didn’t Voq suck with weapons? Ash Tyler is a pilot/rifle-god.
Ash also has no problem with eating un-fresh human food, unlike Kurn.
Klingons under Kol are spreading the use of cloaking devices.
As lots of online commentators have mentioned, the story arc versus episodic format of the series has left a lot to be desired with regards to character development. It’s episode six and we’re just starting to get a glimpse of Saru, but still know nothing about Keyla Detmer. Rmr. “The Naked Now” was TNG’s third episode.
I briefly thought that the idea of showing Lorca with a Phaser on him, after hearing that he had effectively set up his former friend/lover Kat Cornwell, was to show that he was considering suicide. He was probably just that paranoid.
Should’ve mentioned it earlier, probably spoken of by now, but why wasn’t “Garth of Izar” mentioned among Starfleet’s best captains? Kirk supposedly studied his exploits at Starfleet Academy so I guess was he retconned. Maybe, in the brief period between Kirk’s studies and the time of Discovery, Garth has already fallen into disgrace.
While replaying my very first Morrowind character, but with all of the latest patches and add-ons, I encountered this beneficial but ultimately immersion-breaking negative weight or negative encumbrance bug. While the Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages (UESP) wiki had no info on the bug, Google found me several archived threads at Tom’s Hardware, including a solution by user “CJ.”
