  1.  The Thermals
  2. Cheap girls
  3. The Dresden Files book series. I’m currently on book 8, Proven Guilty.
  4. WWE NXT.  I mean, seriously. Best roster anywhere.  Nakamura, Aries, Samoa Joe, Balor. Great all around, and so much damn fun.
  5.  Dr. Who.  I’m currently watching the main series and all of the side series on Amazon Prime, using this guide.
  6.  Sex Criminals – It’s awesome, trust me.
  7. Anything involving Jon Snodgrass.

So below the fold I’m going to explain the Laundry Files time line, and give a running order for the series—including short stories as well as novels.

One of my favorite series. I recommend everyone read them.

Reports of priests and pastors sexually assaulting their underage charges are, of course, truly adimeadozen. By contrast, we’re still waiting for the first confirmed report of a transgender person who sexually attacked someone in a restroom.

Although I’ve been registered to vote for pretty much exactly half of my life (18 years), tomorrow will be my first time voting in a primary.  For probably the first 8 years that I was registered, I was registered as “No Affiliation”, and as a Libertarian for the last 10.  Over the last couple of years though, my views have been slowly moving to the left, which I believe was predicated by the birth of my son.

So, in the fall, I changed my registration to Democrat, and I’ll be voting for Bernie Sanders and John Fetterman tomorrow in the Pennsylvania primary. I do not go into this lightly.  This is the way my vote is going to attempt to assure a brighter future for my son.

  • I do not want my son’s future to be filled with endless wars in sandy hellscapes over fossil fuels.
  • I don’t want my son to have the crippling anxiety of how he’s going to afford food when medical bills or student loan payments come due.
  • I want the planet to continue to live and thrive.
  • I want my son to be able to be himself, no matter who that is without fear of attack or discrimination.
  • I want my son to live in a nation that is not slowly creeping toward a backwards theocracy, where people do not use their belief in fairy tales and ancient myths to attempt to treat other people like shit.

While Bernie is my first choice, I will vote for whoever is the Democratic nominee in the general election. I can not in good conscience allow a Republican to appoint any supreme court justices. Do I think Hillary is corrupt?  Yes. Do I think she is tainted by Wall Street money?  Very much so.  Will I vote for her over a megalomaniac business-man and a frightening religious demagogue?  Every damn day.

I do this for my son, and the baby in my wife’s womb.

I do it for all of us.

We can do better.

We have to do better.
