Spielberg Time

Posted on Friday, August 19th, 2022

Dave!Last night I was in a movie chat room where the topic of discussion was Spielberg films. Not something I'm incredibly passionate about, even though he's made a dozen films I've really enjoyed.

Eventually talk turned to which of his films were our favorites, at which point I was mentally ranking them in my head. But them I decided to rank them in my computer when I couldn't think of more than a dozen.

Luckily I have a blog where I can dump things like this...

  1. Raiders of the Lost Ark
  2. Minority Report
  3. Jurassic Park
  4. Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  5. Schindler’s List
  6. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  7. Saving Private Ryan
  8. Jaws
  9. Catch Me if You Can
  10. Always
  11. The Terminal
  12. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
  13. Munich
  14. Lincoln
  15. The Color Purple
  16. A.I. Artificial Intelligence
  17. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
  18. War of the Worlds
  19. Bridge of Spies
  20. The Post
  21. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
  22. The Sugarland Express
  23. Amistad
  24. War Horse
  25. Empire of the Sun
  26. The BFG
  27. Hook
  28. 1941
  29. West Side Story
  30. The Adventures of TinTin
  31. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
  32. Ready Player One

Caturday 276

Posted on Saturday, September 17th, 2022

Dave!I have got to remember to wake Jake up if he's sleeping before I go to bed. If I don't, he wakes up and sees that everybody is gone, then starts crying and crying. Eventually he calms down after I yell down a few times... but it still makes me feel bad.

And speaking of feeling bad...

This is what I do when I walk into a room where one of the cats are sleeping and unintentionally wake them up. But then I'm all "Why do I feel bad? All they DO is sleep!" Plus the fact that they can fall asleep again almost immediately. A talent I sure wish that I had.

Lately when I've awakened in the morning and am heading down to feed the cats, my bedroom, the hallway, and all the way down the stairs is littered with toys...

Toys everywhere!

When I get home from work I put them back in the toybox... only to find them dragged back out the next morning.

When I look at the security cameras, I see that it's Jake. He spends hours pulling toys out. Not all at the same time... sometimes he takes breaks between trips... but still. That's a lot of time...

Jake hauling toys.

No idea what's going through that furry little head of his.

Not this is anything new.

When is a Desk Not a Desk?

Posted on Monday, September 19th, 2022

Dave!There was a meme floating through Facebook this past week asking "What company or service that has closed would you bring back?" And I was like "Wow... so many." But if I was forced to pick just one, it would probably be Anthro.

This is a copany that made industrial furniture. And I bought a lot of it. Their stuff was built like a tank, looked great, and had a lot of thought behind it. My two desks at work (along with my scanner stand) is Anthro. My desk at home used to be Anthro until I used a built-in nook desk for my computer and put it into storage. But I still have Anthro shelving at home.

You've probably seen Anthro products before even if the name isn't ringing any bells... it's pretty iconic-looking...

An Anthro Desk.

The reason I'd like to bring Anthro back (other than they made such great stuff) is that I need some replacements for the plastic shelf brackets. They're beefy, but plastic gets brittle after 30 years and they're starting to split on me.

Right now I'm essentially canibalizing parts from various Anthro stuff to keep the pieces I'm still using operational.

I wonder if somebody out there is 3D printing the pieces I'm looking for? Seems like there's a demand for it given how many thousands upon thousands of furniture pieces that Anthro make for the decades they were running.

Dave!   
At some point the wildfires have to end, right? I just want to breath again.
