Andy Weir Does it again. I’m really Enjoying Artemis

I wanted to take a minute to tell you, if you haven’t grabbed a copy of Artemis, Andy Weir’s latest book, do it, right now. I’m a little over halfway through and it’s hard to put it down. It’s a very different book than The Martian, but also very similar. I’m really enjoying it and can’t wait to finish it to find out how it ends, but also kind of dreading it because then it’ll be over. I really dig his choices for the characters, it’s pretty awesome how he’s created a world that’s diverse and interesting. No one feels cardboard or caricature.   Anyhow, short post just to say, Artemis is most definitely worth the money.

The Orville is so close

I’ve been watching The Orville since it launched, and I’ve been mostly loving it. Mostly. I’ve never been a Seth Macfarlane fan, like ever. I wasn’t sure I’d like the Orville entirely because I was afraid it’d be ‘Family Guy’ with all its over the top idiot humor, but in space. Sometimes it is, sometimes it’s incredible Sci-Fi.

Case in point, green slime guy, who seems to exist for no other purpose than to say disgusting things like…

I’ll Always Vote Optimism

I’ll never stop voting for hope and optimism. There’s been a lot of discussion around the recent vote on Initiative 300 (feel free to read the initiative here and a great Denverite article, here). It passed by a narrow margin and immediately the hand-wringing commenced. The Mayor opposed it, saying it went “too far too fast” That feels like Mayor Hancock’s motto as most of his efforts seem to be closer to “Do little, talk a lot.” Here’s why I voted for it. It’s not an amendment to our state constitution, so while some argue it’s wording isn’t great, it can be revised and adjusted as we collect data on its implementation. It’s the result of builders and the city giving no fucks about Denver’s future. When the government and “The…
