In typical fashion, I'm a game behind everyone else. While the world has gone crazy over Pokemon GO, I've finally gotten into Miitomo. This game/app/thing is brilliant and completely Yoshio Sakamoto. I've grown to love it, and the kicker is that I've never even interacted with anyone in it yet. Until Nintendo adds a Google friending option, it's unlikely that I will. But I'm having fun and buying pirate hats on my own, so I'm good.

Finally beat SFZ the other night. Ridiculous and a total blast. The ending (pictured) w/ Iwata tribute is perfect. Someday people will appreciate this one.

Rings of Saturn



Saturn's rings in false color
Voyager 2 (1977-)
NASA

"Possible variations in chemical composition from one part of Saturn's ring system to another are visible in this Voyager 2 picture as subtle color variations that can be recorded with special computer-processing techniques. This highly enhanced color view was assembled from clear, orange and ultraviolet frames obtained Aug. 17 from a distance of 8.9 million kilometers (5.5 million miles). In addition to the previously known blue color of the C-ring and the Cassini Division, the picture shows additional color differences between the inner B-ring and outer region (where the spokes form) and between these and the A-ring. The Voyager project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif."
