Monday Morning Commute: We’re all riding shotgun with Entropy

we're here until we're not

We’re all riding shotgun with Entropy.

That’s the long of it, the short of it. Celebrated the Fourth of July twice this weekend. Once at a friend’s apartment, who I consider to be family. Once at my family’s house, who I consider to be friends.

Me, my friends, my family?

We’re all riding shotgun with entropy.

The Universe wasn’t paying much attention to our celebrations. Too busy housing Everything. Too busy searching for that sweet, sugary Heat Death at the end of it all. Expanding endlessly until it won’t.

Me, my friends, my family, the Universe?

We’re all riding shotgun with entropy.

The wife I married, the dog I love, the friends I cherish, the family I belong to, the Universe that carries me.

We’re all here until we’re not.

We’re all riding shotgun with entropy.

I don’t know what to make of this, other than to appreciate my wife, walk my dog, hang out with my friends, and stare lovingly at the stars when the nights permit. This isn’t profundity and it isn’t resignation.

It’s a shrug and a smile in the face of the Absurd. What else can I do?

We’re all riding shotgun with entropy.

This is Monday Morning Commute. The column where I slather onto this particular digispace all the items, all the miscellany, all the bullshit that I’m interfacing with on a given week. You know, when I’m not staring into the raging chasm of Void and Stars, condemning the tragic mistake that is self-awareness, while simultaneously praising the Cosmic Joke for stumbling into giving us clowns self-awareness.

It is my optimistic encouragement that you’ll share what you’re up to this week in the comments section.




Finished Nemesis Games. Now I’m tapping my foot until Babylon’s Ashes drops this Winter.


The Last of Us.


The Last of Us. I don’t really know how far into the game Bateman and I are, but it’s shaping up to be one of the most wonderful gaming experiences I’ve ever had the privilege of partaking in.


Ultima Lucha.


The second season of Lucha Underground is winding down, staring this week. The final three episodes are going to be dedicated to Ultima Lucha, the show’s equivalent of Wrestlemania.

Can’t wait.


‘DOOM’ Campaign Trailer: Game drops May 13!

Slowly Ingesting:

DOOM. Fuck! The game is good. Fuck! The game is also intense. Can only play so much of it in one sitting.




FM-84! I’m not sure the genre, but I enjoy them.


Borderlands 2.


Borderlands 2. This time on PC. Jesus Christ, it’s pretty on my rig. 4K, 120 FPS, ridiculous lighting. Bought it on Steam for $5. More than worth it.


ufc 200


UFC 200. Holy shit, what a packed card.




Zootopia. Caught it last night with my wife. V. enjoyable. 10/10, will show to my future child.




Saga, volume 6. Tomorrow. I need to catch up. I need to catch up!


That’s it for me, friends. What are you up to this week?
