Cowboy Bebop Opening Credits

Cowboy Bebop is one of my favorite anime series. I was worried about Netflix’s live-action adaptation (especially given what they did with Death Note), but they just released the open credits. Let me say this: it looks spot on. They used the same opening score music from the anime (called...

Wheel of Time Trailer!

“The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend.” Such is the opening poem to the epic Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (and later Brandon Sanderson). Amazon Prime is bringing the much beloved fantasy series to life this November, and they have...

Beautiful Panorama on Mars

NASA’s Curiosity rover, which has been on Mars for nine years now, has just taken a great, full-color panorama of the Gale crater. You can see a the panorama video released by JPL below, and it is even narrated to explain everything you are seeing. The resolution is stunning, and...

Foundation Series

The latest trailer for the adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy has just come out. It looks pretty good, but I’m bummed that this series will be on Apple TV. I don’t have Apple TV and have no plan to get it. Even so, I’m sure it will be available...

Vader / Obi-Wan Battle Reimagined

Some very creative and talented people have recreated the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi, from A New Hope. Obviously, technical limitations in 1977 made an epic lightsaber duel impractical in the first Star Wars movie, but this scene brings the battle inline with what we saw of...

1 For All D&D Musical

The “1 For All” D&D gamers web series by Deerstalker Production is always great, but this time they have truly outdone themselves with this hilarious D&D musical adventure. It is absolutely fantastic. If you haven’t seen any of their episodes before, it’s fine to watch this. Most of the episodes...

J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin

I know it’s a few years old, but I just stumbled upon the “J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin epic rap battle” and it is truly a gem (perhaps even an arkenstone?) among the many excellent epic rap battles that have been made. Go ahead and give...

Weird Musical Mashups

I just recently stumbled upon the weird and wonderful musical mashups by two Italian brothers call the Melodicka Bros. They do covers for famous songs and bands, but with a twist: they play the song way out of genre. So, for example, they have a cyberpunk/synthwave cover of Toto’s “Africa.”...

Mars Perseverance Rover Has Landed!

NASA’s and JPL’s latest Mars rover, Perseverance, has successfully touched down on the Red Planet! This rover is similar to the last rover, Curiosity (which is still operating by the way), but has significant advances over is predecessor. The main difference is that Perseverance is carrying an experimental Mars helicopter...

Star Wars on Disney+

Disney just dumped an absolutely massive list of new shows coming soon to Disney+ streaming service, and it’s absolutely mind-blowing! Among many other shows, the super-stars of the announcement were those for Star Wars and the Marvel MCU. In the Marvel MCU there is WandaVision, Hawkeye, What If?, Loki, Ms....
