What have you done, Joe?

joeI was wrong. After every horrible thing I’ve said about him for over two decades, I’ve been put in my place. All that merciless bashing of his on-screen abilities just to have it thrown back into my face. Thinking his only positive contribution to the silver screen was going to be Raising Arizona and now I have to eat crow. I just finished watching Joe and I was wrong. Nicolas Cage is a good actor. Clearly, this is one of the best movies I’ve seen so far this year and, doubtlessly, the strongest performance as well.

Please Mr. Cage, don’t do another Ghost Rider movie or go losing your shit again. It’s now acutely obvious that you’re better than that.

Dammit, Safari! Work with me here!

Apple, I’m happily entwined in your ecosystem, but I can’t, for the life of me, move completely over to Safari on all platforms. Every time I try, you just give me reasons to back off. Give me a snappier response, pinned tabs, a better download manager, and an ad-blocking plugin that actually works. Then we’ll talk.

Wafer vs Waffle vs Sugar Cone

I’ve spent 35 years on this planet and I’m finally ready to give everyone the answer as to which cone is the best for ice cream. It is the wafer cone and the wafer cone alone. If you say the waffle or sugar cone, so help me, I will murder you. They don’t inherit the property of the ice cream inside of it. You can’t stand either of them flat on a table when you need an extra hand. They can’t reliably hold ice cream the way the wafer cone can without dripping. I mean put some soft serve in a waffle or sugar cone and tell me your hands aren’t sticky in a matter of minutes. They’re also cheaper of the two solutions. Seriously, get on wafer train because any other answer and you’re just flat out wrong.

The First Step

Best part of my night was hearing a quote that I probably should have ran into in the past, but was new for me.

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’m having a very difficult time moving even the slightest bit past paralysis without seeing that whole stair case right now.
