September was a slog, and quite possibly the worst month in many years. Family passed, friends lost their jobs and my fiancé was bitten by a dog and had a scary few days in the hospital. There were a few bright spots there, but I’m just glad to see October hit and fall weather start to roll in.
I’ve not been reading as much as I’d like, even though I have a good backlog of books. I’m hoping to get through The Peripheral before the movie hits. Shocking I’ve never read that book before, it’s right up my alley on topic. I’ve also started pre-reading a good friends unreleased book.
Here are some links I ran across recently. Enjoy!
This is a bonkers ride down a mountainside. I can’t tell in the video if the riders have any speed control or if it’s just a free fall. I wish I could say I’d be brave enough to ride this, but no way.
Amazing underwater photos, and the wave photo that won is just spectacular.
This is both heartbreaking and wonderful. I'm partial to dog stories as we have two dogs that we share a home with. Neither of which can ride a bus.
I have a Timbuk2 messenger bag, and it's great. It's just too big to be a good day bag. Ordered this today, and will be using it extensively on our upcoming Maui trip. Also, I LOVE how Timbuk2 shows a video clip of actual people wearing the bag.
I didn't upgrade my Apple Watch this season, but the new Ultra looks sexy as hell. A few good friend s picked this up and love it. This video is a bit long, but I love that it's in Scotland and how much detail he puts into the everything.
I don't recall how I ran across this link but I love the site, the themes and the mission. "We are a tri-monthly magazine that is open to submission from speculative fiction writers from across Africa and the African Diaspora." Much reading planned here.
One of the reasons I love reading Hacker News so much is the depth of intelligent discussions and feedback that come in the comments. The topics covered in this thread are often way outside my interest, but the way the books are covered here makes me want to rethink my reading habits a bit.
