What am I doing?


  • I've been working on updates to this site. The new version will be a combination of the resume site I planned to build, blog, and this site.
  • I'm working on a rebuild of my Turtle Boy Brew site. The site is an old WordPress site and needs some updating to catch up to all the new stuff. It's time.
  • I'll be re-launching my photography blog and my other site. More on that soon.

Changed my mind

I like the idea of having a dedicated online resume but decided Drupal was not the right tool for me for this project.

I've archived that project and redirected the URL to drupal.claudiasnell.com. That new site will be there as a sample. I know it's a little confusing but I changed the URL to avoid having 2 sites called "resume". That would be more confusing over time.

Next step: I'm building my resume in Eleventy and will be launching as soon as I can. I'll also be making changes to this site as part of that project.

We watch a lot of films and other stuff in my house

Current Obsessions

I got into watching all the Marvel movies and series during the pandemic and I love them. I've also been watching some of the work of Guy Maddin.

I like biographical documentaries. Some I've enjoyed this year are: Louise Brooks: Looking for Lulu, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, and Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blache.

Answers to the important questions

Star Trek AND Star Wars. Yes, LOTR too. I will always watch a Twilight Zone marathon. Same goes for X-Files. I prefer subtitles to dubbed. Letterboxed is better than pan and scan. I enjoy Rifftrax, MST3K, horror movies, and cult films. I also love art films and the intellectual stuff.

My Playlists

I'm always listening to something and I have playlists for everything. I find most of my music through suggestions from friends or from films. Here are some current favorites.

  • Awesome Mix 1 & 2: Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2 Soundtracks. Great for listening in the car, while working or working out. Excellent mood lifter.
  • Get To Work: Orbital, Aphex Twin, The Prodigy, The Crystal Method One of my workout playlists.
  • Work Mix 2: Neotropic, Flanger, Amon Tobin This is a playlist of music suggested by my son and a friend. It's great for working or relaxing.
