    OK, I launched that but promptly discovered that I have no idea what the ATM code is NOR any idea how to get the hell back out of the ATM code screen, lol.

    I'm on 8 of 10 of The Umbrella Academy and loving it so far! Like X-Men meets The Royal Tanenbaums, lol.

    What are YOU playin' ? (game thread)

    Hey I only left the track twice! And that was like the 4th time I'd driven it, lol!

    What are YOU playin' ? (game thread)

    Do it! 👍 Meanwhile, I am preparing for Dirt Rally 2.0 by totally ignoring DR 1.0 and playing a bunch of RBR, which was originally made in 2004 but still better than all the other ones combined. I downloaded the 2019 course pack for RBRTM and have been messing with the 100+ tracks in there recently.

    The Gone World by Thomas Sweterlitsch — Incredibly over-the-top grisly time travel novel. It basically makes sense from a time loop perspective and it had some interesting ideas but it took me forever to read since a) I wasn't really enjoying the lovingly crafted descriptions of multiple, multiple murders and b) I didn't want to read myself to sleep with it as is my usual modus operandi (see a). Basically, our hero investigates crimes that may be related to national security using time travel into the future to foresee what happens after the murder and what becomes of the suspects down the line. She then goes back and prevents it in "base time" or whatever they call the "real" thread that is spawning all the many-worlds time lines that she is visiting in the future. At the start of the book, she is called in to investigate a triple homicide that takes place in what used to be the home of her best friend in high school (who was also murdered). Hijinks ensue. Honestly, it's not badly written but it sure wasn't my cup of tea.

    I am with Remote on this one. Malka Older's trilogy is the most groundbreaking stuff I've read recently by far.

    ^ To be faaaaaairrrr, LetterKenny is on Hulu not Netflix. But I get your drift, @Boogerhead! This happened Thursday, but I failed to write it up in a timely manner. Had a lovely meatup with @db and @s.smigiel. Really nice to finally meet you both, guys!

    Yeah, I saw that. It's not as good as John Wick, but in some ways has a similar feel since it's about a hit being put out on a hitman, I guess.

    More Human Than Human, Stories of Androids, Robots, and Manufactured Humanity — Pretty decent short story compilation involving androids. I especially liked Bitrot by Stross and I, Robot by Doctorow. Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames — Cute little swords and sorcery adventure novel. The catch is everyone is now old and barely even wants to go adventuring, but one of their former band really needs their help so they set out to do so. Inhabits grounds somewhere between Xena, Princess Warrior, Discworld and Spinal Tap, although not as funny as the last two and including Xena on the list is a knock against it, imho.

    The Exercise Thread

    Did 40 miles yesterday, including riding over Gates Pass, which I haven't done in ages. Pretty sore today though. But the 2500 calorie burn was good!

    The Poppy War by R F Kuang — Fairly fast-reading adventure of an orphan girl who is attempting to survive and insure her future employment by getting trained at an elite military academy in a place that reads very similarly to a dynastic China with magic. I mostly enjoyed it although I could tell as I neared the end that it was part one of a series and that we were being set up to need to read that too. Pretty fun read though, overall.
