I installed the new legs on Lt. Dan, (my desk.) I also broke down and got some speaker stands. I like the extra desktop space it created. I’ll do a studio photo update soon. I love the new computer I built for music production. It’s so fast it makes me giggle.
I’m ripping DVD’s and Blu-ray’s for the Plex server I built over the weekend. I have several complete series of animated TV shows stacked up and ready to rip. They finish faster than I’m able to get that damn cellophane wrapper off the set.
I plan on continuing until my entire collection is on an SSD hard drive. This way I’ll be able to watch everything I own on my iPad Pro, iPhone, Android phone, Macs, and PCs, and all my TVs. When I travel, I can watch it using the hotel wifi. Yay.
I’m re-reading the Game of Thrones series, by George R. R. Martin. I watched the HBO series up until The Mountain crushed Prince Oberlyn’s head. It disturbed me so much I bailed. It was only a matter of time with this series. I can handle the books, though.
It’s been years since I read them, and now the HBO actors are who I visualize. I recognize how faithful to the novels they were initially. I appreciate it, even more, this time around, as it’s more apparent.
As a writer, I’m focusing on several specific aspects of the story during this reading. This change of perspective makes nearly everything I’ve read re-readable. Yay. Not that I was worried I’d run out of books. Heh. I love revisiting old familiar worlds. I’m off to rip another series. 💜
