X-Wing Tribute Video

Have a look at this absolutely stunning X-Wing tribute video, set to Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone.” The song turns out to be a perfect fit for x-wing pilots. The video has footage from Star Wars Episodes IV through IX, as well as Rogue One. I really wish Disney would make...

All 9 Star Wars Films, all at once

Before YouTube takes it down, you can watch all 9 Star Wars movies at the same time (in nine little boxes). I guess it does violate copyright, but the main point of this video is to demonstrate the timing of the pacing and plotting elements of Star Wars. Maybe that...

Final Fantasy VII Remake Released

The Final Fantasy VII Remake has been released! Alas, it’s only for PS4, and I don’t have a PS4. Oh well… There’s a lot of nostalgia with a game like this, and the original Final Fantasy VII was one of the most beloved games of all time. It was one...

Chris Mann’s “My Corona”

This is a real gem of a song — a parody of “My Sharona” called “My Corona” by independent artist Chris Mann. The song highlights the many social inconveniences caused by the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus, with special emphasis on the ridiculous run on toilet paper across the nation.

The Strange Aliens of Abiogenisis

It has often been said that no human being can conceive of creatures that are truly alien to our world and to our experience. That is why so many aliens in science fiction basically just look like humans with prosthetics or, at best, humans in creature suits. That may be...

DIY Vintage PC

Some people (like myself) prefer to modify their PC cases to suit their aesthetic. But for this fellow, that’s small potatoes. Matt of DIY Perks knows how to build a steampunk PC. A real steampunk PC. From scratch. That’s right, using leather, brass pieces from eBay, and a welding torch,...

New “Picard” Series Starts This Week!

The new Star Trek mini-series “Picard” starts this week! I don’t really have much more to say about it, other than to state the fact that I’m excited! I’ve been watching “Star Trek: Discovery,” and while I don’t think it’s terrible, it just doesn’t have the magic that Next Generation,...

Accurate Science in “The Expanse”

“The Expanse” is among my favorite sci-fi shows, and probably my favorite that is currently on going. One thing I really love about “The Expanse” is how accurate they try to keep the science. It’s not perfect, of course–there is still a lot of rule-bending–but “The Expanse” does not outright...

All New PC for an All New Year

I just finished building my new desktop PC! Building computers has been a hobby of mine since the early 1990s. Apart from a brief stint as a paperboy (which I won’t count), my first job in high school was building computers for a small custom PC business in ’91 or...
