Who is Mr. Robot?

In you haven’t heard about it yet, Mr. Robot is a new TV series created by Sam Esmail that follows Elliot, a programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. Season 1 premiered on USA this summer and quickly became one of my favorite television shows.

In fact, I liked the show so much that I decided to dress up as Mr. Robot for Halloween this year. I actually meant to write this blog post shortly after Halloween, but I’m glad that I didn’t have the time back then to write it.

During a trip to New York City this past weekend, I met a couple of fans of the show while I was on location at Elliot’s apartment taking some photos. I was dressed up in my Mr. Robot costume and they were thrilled to see me. I think that my Mr. Robot costume was a success!

Frozen Movie Chandelier Christmas Lights - Coventry, RI

A De-“light”-ful Christmas Tradition

Holiday movies, Christmas music, and freshly baked sugar cookies are just some of the tell tale signs the holiday season has arrived. Maybe one, or all of these, are a routine part of how one chooses to celebrate the season. For me, one tradition I always look forward to is the pursuit of Christmas lights.
