Quixotic Iconoclast

Remember, kids: Safety first, danger second!

why am I watching so much Warehouse 13?

it’s not a bad show by any means, don’t get me wrong. but i’m half-marathoning it especially all day today and i don’t think it’s quite good enough to warrant it. definitely decent for a syfy original series of course.

i guess the house dynamics over in SD are just a bit weird. my housemate’s mom (who lives in his house—she rents her house to other relatives, it’s complicated) reminds me a little too much of my mom in a number of specific ways and it compels me to avoid contact with her as much as possible

amongst other things she’s encouraged me to go to her church and once asked me to pray out loud when her son and I were about to drive up to LA. she does all the same passive-aggressive religious crap. watches televangelistic series at a high enough volume for us to hear, basically tells her grown son to go to church but it’d be too awkward for him to call her out on giving him orders about something one is supposed to do of their own volition, etc. etc.

and that implicit spiritual superiority that makes any sort of dialogue absolutely impossible. i REALLY don’t want to have to deal with that.

but hey, i also really enjoy living in SD at $400 a month, including utilities.

The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
