"Faith" by The Cure is the perfect Spooky Season tune, as it has wrecked my day on so many occasions. That hopeless bass, the desperate vocals and the unconvincing closure--"I went away alone with nothing left but faith"...

Consider me wrecked.


My next nominee for Spooky Season Movie Marathon shall be Vampire Hunter D. I can't claim to be a true fan of anime, but D has always been one of my favorite characters.

One day I will accept that I keep coming back to Fedora and GNOME because we were meant to be, we three. Hopefully today is that day.

I was not feeling Joker when the first teaser trailer dropped. But I loved it. It was obviously inspired by Taxi Driver which was fitting since it also featured DeNiro.

Most of the movies I've requested from the library for my Spooky Season Movie Marathon are currently checked out. Spooky Season is in the air.

Facebook: I'm in a promising local band.

Twitter: I'm developing an idea for a startup.

Instagram: I'm building an audience to become an influencer.

Mastodon: I use Linux distros you've never even heard of.

I've been making a point of embracing simplicity in order to focus on content. My new personal website (jakelacaze.com/) is no exception. Shoutout to Bryan Lunduke (lunduke.com) for the inspiration.

I have no idea how to make sense of Sturgill Simpson's new album, and that's exactly what I'm loving about it.

Why do we call it "environment protection", when really it's more like "human protection". I feel like the environment will survive a lot more and longer than those pesky humans will.

I enjoy saying "Spooky Season" way more than I actually enjoy Spooky Season itself. This morning when my wife suggested we watch a Spooky Season movie tonight, I was reminded of why I fell in love with her in the first place.

Altered my methods so that I could work on blog posts in the morning and personal journaling throughout the remainder of the day. Finally got Joplin synced between my laptop and phone via Webdev. Set a deadline of one post every week, preferably on Sundays. No excuses. Let's do this ish.

Procrastination is a real problem we need to talk about... later.

Fun fact: I can never play "Scream" by the Misfits without hitting repeat at least eleventy times.


Is The Nightmare Before Christmas a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie?

I was making a list of movies to watch for Halloween when I hit this dilemma. No taking the east way out with "both".

It looks as if it's time to find a new podcast app on Android since Pocket Casts has gone with a freemium/subscription model even though I previously purchased the app. They may think that 3 years of service is generous, but it's not when I already paid once for lifetime service. I'm not a fan of paying twice for things.

Someone in my neighborhood is getting a head start on the Spooky Season pranks. I wonder what else we'll find in our back yard.
