Buuurrrp

Everybody loburpes Rick and Morty, and rightly so.
It ticks all the cynical boxes full of nihilistic meta-humor and what not, while satirizing pretty much everything.

Yay! tRakt is now on CRAN

Overanalyzing tv shows has kind of become my jam. So …

Solving problems nobody ever has

Remember that last post?
No?
Good. Then don’t scroll down. Or do. Idunno.

One thing I wanted for my more-or-less-automated TV show plots was appropriate colors to differentiate seasons.

I just wanted to rewatch Stargate

Stargate SG-1, while probably a mediocre show in the grand scheme of sci-fi shows, it’s the sci-fi show I grew up with, so I tend to enjoy rewatching parts of it occasionally.
