I made one of those big mistakes today. I tried to have an actual discussion about an issue on Facebook. With someone I disagreed with. It went about as well as you can expect. I joined a thread in progress. Within two responses I was called pee drinker. Shortly after that the thread originator essentially … More Thoughts on Trans People and Bathrooms
Continuing my habit of being timely with my reviews, here is one for a movie from 2014! Living abroad makes is really hard to keep up with movies. I didn’t even know this existed until it came out on video here. I started watching it because of J. K. Simmons. It wasn’t until it started … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Whiplash

After a full day of teaching and trying to move on some of my other hobbies, I am beat. All I’ve really got the energy for is to open up a Superman comic and do some reading. I’m about four issues in to my 1991 read and I’m having fun. There have been a few … More Day’s End with Superman
I spent a large part of the day playing with my little guy. We sang, danced, read some books and watching some videos. In the afternoon the Mrs. took over and I did a little bit of work (sadly not on my writing). I also prepped something I’ve been wanting to do for a while … More Reading Superman
Leo’s grandparents made it into town today. They live just far enough so it isn’t so easy for them to make it over here very often, so we wanted to make a day of it. There was still a bit of chill in the air, so we couldn’t go out for too long, but we … More Family Outing
I’m still fighting with my sinus/ear infection. I’ve been told it isn’t really that contagious, so that’s good. Every now and then there is a touch of dizziness or a stab of pain. But that kind of feels like a ‘such is life’ statement. Despite not feeling my best, there is still a little guy … More Fathering in Sickness
I’m home sick today, so I thought I’d watch one of the movies on my list of things to see. I’d been putting this one off for a while because probably the best praise I’d heard was “It isn’t as bad as most people saw.” With such encouraging reviews, what could go wrong? Fantastic Four … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Fantastic Four (2015)
I’ve been battling with some sinus congestion for the past week. The timing had me wondering if it was a sickness or some kind of allergies. I’ve never really had allergies, but they are a bug thing over here in Japan, especially in the spring time. I have also heard that they can come on … More Ear, Nose, and Throat
