Out of the Blue

There were a couple of odd elements in the series finale of The Night Of, but it was still a satisfying conclusion to the story. I would be surprised if the show doesn't earn John Turturro a second Emmy. The other great thing about the broadcast was the debut of a new Westworld Trailer. This show looks so fantastic it's making me all squirmy in anticipation of its October debut. I realize I'm letting my expectations spiral out-of-control, but I feel confident this won't disappoint.

Yeah, every time I see it advertised I get pumped. The original movie doesn't hold up all that well, but I hope the series doesn't disappoint.


Anthony Hopkins has so much gravitas that the entire show is threatened with impending gravitational collapse into a single point smaller than a single celled organism.

No, but it is SETI using any chance possible to remind people they exist and always require more money for their useless hobby.

On the other hand, answering the question of whether we're alone in the universe is the most important question man can answer. It would be the most important scientific discovery in our history as a species. Even more important that the invention of Pop Rocks, IMO.

Aww, was always a fan of his. Actually just watched Young Frankenstein and The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother not that long ago. Still 83 is a good run.

The Price of Solar Is Declining to Unprecedented Lows.

Good news. We're still burning a ton of coal, so this news should allow us to accelerate replacement with solar. A few hundred square miles of solar in the AZ desert could provide all the electricity for the USA. The right mix of photovoltaic, concentrated solar power, and wind could provide full coverage of our electric needs vastly reducing the need for fossil fuel back up and eventually eliminating it.

Hadn't paid much attention to Westworld, but that trailer has me very excited for October. Looks fantastic, and HBO rarely puts out a stinker.

The Thor bit was great, Hemsworth should look into doing more comedy. I heard he's the best part of the new Ghostbusters. Bit of a surprise, but before 21 Jump Street, who'd have thought Channing Tatum would have been the best part of that movie?

Also, the Elders React to Cloudlands Minigolf...that game is one of only a couple Vive games that can truly be called a "full game". It has multiplayer, which works flawlessly, several gonzo holes, and a surprisingly great level editor that they're constantly adding new pieces to. They're even considering allowing user submissions that they'll then add sockets to so they'll snap in along with others. Glad to see it getting some attention, it should be on every Vive owner's playlist, along with RecRoom. I could go on for pages about RecRoom, but this is already too long.
