Friday Fun Link – Mark Hamill Goes Undercover As A Stormtrooper

Obi-Wan Has Risen (Happy Easter!)

And here’s an interview with a United Church Minister who’s also a vocal atheist.

Friday Fun Link – Inside Out (Without the “Inside” Parts)

Recent Academy Award “Best Animated Feature” winner, Pixar’s “Inside Out” was one of the best movies released last year.  Part of the appeal was how it used cartoonish illustrations to show the interplay of emotions within a person’s head. But what happens if you take away the “inside” parts?  You still end up with a pretty […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Star Wars Christmas (sometime in the early 1980’s) & Friday Fun Link – “The Force Awakens” Random Thoughts

Not often I get to combine my Throwback Thursday and Friday Fun Link but after making a fairly spontaneous decision to go to a midnight showing of the new Star Wars movie last night, I thought posting this picture was a bit of both categories. I’ll try to keep it spoiler-free as I give a […]

You Can’t Defend Public Libraries and Oppose File Sharing

Libraries and file-sharing do not differ in principle. The purpose of libraries was – is – to make culture and knowledge available to as many as possible, as efficiently as possible, for free – simply because of the greater socioeconomic benefit of an educated and cultural populace. How is this not file-sharing? Great article that […]

Music Monday – “When the night has come/And the land is dark/And the moon is the only light we’ll see” (RIP Ben E. King)

Is there a better coming-of-age movie than “Stand By Me”?  And the title song of that movie is part of the reason it had such an impact on me. I remember seeing “Stand By Me” in the theatre in Indian Head when I was about 13 years old then walking out into the street and […]
