This is a quick 'n' dirty placeholder for a personal homepage, which syndicates the most recent posts from my Google+ feed Posterous blog and shared articles from Google Reader. Real homepage coming when I get around to it.

Sleepy Hollow has gone from must-see TV in its first season, to jumping a bigger shark every fifth episode in its second. Pity.

I'm not really into video game streaming or the so-called "esports" culture, but it seems to me that if League of Legends allows players to disable Spectator Mode for their games, then choosing to prevent people from spectating except through Azubu, his endorsed streaming service, is 100% on the player, Faker. If LoL does NOT allow players to disable spectator mode, then all LoL players have to accept the fact that all LoL games they play are public, which means Faker licensed exclusive rights to Azubu that he didn't have exclusive ownership of in the first place. I mean, these guys are throwing a hissy fit about someone publicly broadcasting something that is already public due to Spectator Mode. Either way, the entire thing seems absurd to me.
