Snowflake

While snowflake has a negative connotation in modern American vernacular, snowflakes are actually pretty heckin cool! Check out this snowflake generator by Vivian Wu. It comes pretty close to capturing the real thing. Also, please teach your children that ALL snowflakes have three axises (six sides).

Some snowflakes I’ve been able to capture in my lifetime. Extremely lucky shots as they are hard to catch!

Video Game Ornaments

The holiday season and video games are intrinsically tied together in my memories. It was always when the games to play were released. I had always wanted to have a video game focused tree, and fortunately we’ve had one the past few years. My wife was a huge supporter of this idea (and wants me to get a larger one) and has helped procured a lot of these ornaments. Also, kudos to Hallmark for tapping that nostalgia market and making some incredibly high quality ornaments.

My Top Music 2020

Man, a lot of people use Spotify. Until they allow me to upload my own music (like Apple Music does) it’s never meant to be. You can’t play the Donkey Kong Land soundtrack on Spotify.

(And before someone busts in here telling me about the local files option… yeah I know, it’s dumb. I’m talkin’ cloud music library baby.)

My top albums/artists/songs for 2020 include:

  • Zelda and Chill II – Mikel
  • Zelda Dark Side of the Triforce – Epic Game Music
  • The Donkey Kong Land OST
  • Playing With The Boys – Kenny Loggins
  • Carrisa – Desert Star
  • River City Girls OST
  • ZeroRanger OST
  • Blinding Lights – The Weeknd
  • Tetris Effect OST
  • Hamilton

You guys are sleeping on that Donkey Kong Land soundtrack… just sayin’

Fall Colors

Autumn is generally not one of my favorite seasons. But I’ll have to say with everything going on in 2020, I am welcoming it with open arms with it’s cool nights, and beautiful colors. I should probably go somewhere this weekend to capture the peak colors before they are gone.
