Hyperlight

A short film about a classic sci-fi problem. It’s another Friday, and, as usual, my poor, little brain has been cooked pretty well this week. If you’re feeling the same way, we’re both in luck because I have the perfect 20 minute distraction from your week. I don’t want to spoil anything, but this very […]

Prospect

A brilliant sci-fi short film. You all know how I love free stuff and that I love science-fiction. This is both. And, it’s a film which debuted just recently at South by Southwest in Austin. It’s about prospectors on an alien planet, though exactly what they’re prospecting for is somewhat questionable. The risks they’re taking, […]

A Little Fantasy

No, not the naughty kind! Ugh, you perverts who immediately thought of something naughty should be ashamed of yourselves! Also? You are my people. Seriously, though, this is the totally safe for work kind of fantasy. And by “little”, what I mean is “miniature”, as in small dioramas. Because, that’s what I have for you […]

SXSW 2018 Music Stars

As picked by National Public Radio. When I was in college, a good friend of mine who happened to be a jazz musician and a dual English and History major, told me I was “tragically unhip”. Sadly, he was not wrong. I’ve spent no small amount of time since then trying to shake that reputation, […]

A Game of Flowers

This game is a little existential, but not in too challenging a way. I’ll be honest, I’m a bit beaten down this week. There’s been a lot. A lot of problems, a lot of work, a lot of everything. And, as a result, I’m just beat. Still, I have a link to share. It’s another […]

Universal Paperclips

An existentialist game about artificial intelligence and, yes, paperclips. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine who read my post about the web-based game, Seedship told me about this fascinating and strangely compelling game, Universal Paperclips. If you follow that link, click on the box in the center to start. There’s no on-site […]

Horribly Beautiful Nature

Nature is filled with creatures both terrible and beautiful. I love macro photography. Getting close to small animals and insects and seeing them in a totally new way and on a scale we don’t normally perceive them is something I love to both do and see. And, while I have to admit my skills are […]

Improve Your Photography This Year

Challenge yourself, one week at a time! This Christmas, I got an LED ring flash can also be used as a continuous ring-light. It’s something I’ve been wanting, but reluctant to buy for myself, because I haven’t been making time for photography the past couple of years. I love macro photography, as well as portraiture, […]

Star Wars Day

While you read this, I’ll be seeing The Last Jedi, in 3D on IMAX. But, since it’s Friday, I still want to share something great for you. Something fun. Still, I also want to keep with the theme of rubbing your noses in the fact that I’m seeing the newest Star Wars movie while you’re […]

Short Film Entertainment

So, it’s the day after Thanksgiving and you should be at least three-quarters done with your NaNoWriMo novel. But, instead of writing you’re here. That means one of two things; either you’re so far ahead that you can take a break, or you’re so far behind that you’ve decided to cut yourself some slack. Either […]
