This is too cool.
I have this series on DVD, but from the sound of it, it may be interesting to watch it in the format it was first aired in. Not worth the money it would cost for me to buy it again, but someday?…
The last Expanse novel’s title & cover was released and the book’s release date kind of announced. It is sadly still a ways off. Right now they’re just saying will release 2021. Cool cover and call back to the first novel’s title. I’m guessing the Levithan in this case will be the Laconian Empire.Continue reading Leviathan Falls Next Year
Want signed copies of The Expanse books? Well minus the last (book 9) which has yet to be released, and the in between novellas.Continue reading Want signed copies of The Expanse books?
This soon to be released game looks intense and has already won a bunch of awards.
I only heard about this upcoming flick awhile back. A new trailer just came out, and needless to say I want to see it, preferably in a movie theater now that Covid nonsense allows, and not a year later on DVD.
Geeky Thought of the Day #242: “How the hell could you possibly remember any Stargate Atlantis address.”
I watch a lot of sci-fi TV shows. I’ll turn on shows I’ve watched a hundred times just for background while I do something else. They’re shows I love, but having seen them so many times I don’t have to really watch and can do something else while still enjoying the company of “an old friend”.
So it was that I had an early episode of Stargate Atlantis on the boob-tube recently while doing some house work. The day before it had been Stargate SG-1. Having seen them both so close together, despite the tons of times I have set them both, something dawned on me that never really “clicked” before…
“Damn, are the symbols on the Stargate Atlantis ‘Pegasus Galaxy’ gates complex, or what?!” To my eye those symbols are just a bunch of unrelated dots that could have been changed from show to show and I would never be able to tell the difference. Continue reading The Ultimate Rotary Phone
A number of videos keep coming out showing more and more details of “No Man’s Sky“. This is the first time I have seriously considered buying a console strictly for one game. It’s hard to admit, but I am strongly tempted to make the jump. I keep finding myself rationalizing that it might be time to get a new desktop PC, that just happens to have a really good video & sound card. But then it may just be easier and cheaper to get a PS4 if all I really want it for is this game?…
And so the chain of logic and lame rationalizations grows longer as I find myself “jonesing” for a game that is not even out yet. We’ll see as the June 21st release date comes closer. Will I resist the temptation or take the plunge, update my antiquated hardware, and explore The Universe?

“It’s easy to find something worth dying for. Do you have anything worth living for?” — Lorien
This quote is from Babylon 5, Season 4 Episode 2 ‘Whatever Happened To Mr. Garibaldi?’. The series as a whole has some great quotes, but this episode alone had a bunch of powerful lines, most coming from the enigmatic character of Lorien, ‘The First One’.
The quote above comes from the beginning of an exchange between the character of Sheridan and Lorien, which ends a few lines later with these two lines: Continue reading Worth Living For…
