Week Notes - Week 45

I was back playing basketball this week! Admittedly, I was very rusty and didn't shoot the ball well. I had some kinesiology tape wrapped round the index finger of my right hand which didn't help trying to grip the ball and it needed replacing a couple of times, but it added some support to the tendon that I damaged a few weeks ago. Eventually I just took the tape off which made quite a big difference and my shot improved. My basketball season starts next week so it was good to have a practice after not playing for a while.

On Saturday, I took a trip to the cinema to see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. I was sceptical about watching this film and how a sequel can be made without the main actor from the first film, but I really enjoyed the film in the end.

On Sunday, I was at the Amex to watch Brighton lose 2-1 against Aston Villa. Not a great performance in the end but we're still 7th in the table. We looked lost at times and didn't exactly create a lot of chances. Some players looked like they were just trying to survive the 90 minutes so they didn't risk their chances of appearing at a World Cup. I hope Brighton's players do well but I can't really say I'm excited for the World Cup next week.

Most of my gaming this week has been NBA 2K23 on the PS5. This week I discovered that the My NBA mode in NBA 2K23 lets you choose which era you want to start your career mode in. I chose the Kobe era which starts in 2002 and lets you play through to the present day. The reason I got excited about this is that some of the first games I played on the GameCube were NBA Courtside 2002 and NBA Live 2005 so I was able to play with those same players but in a much higher resolution. Pure nostalgia.

What has changed on this site:

  • I now have some real webmentions on this site, so I was able to make some improvements to how they are shown at the end of my writings.
  • In light theme, some of the inline code statements had very low colour contrast. I fixed this.
