Happy Monday

With the stress of the impending workweek upon us, the best reaction just may be a little comedic relief.

We all know those famous drama and comedy masks and how they go together so well with life’s various situations. And, with that, Jimmy’s Daily Planet presents Jerry Seinfeld’s take on people (ie- us) to kick-off this workweek.

Is Jerry Seinfeld the master of observing nothing or everything?

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

An Old School Story

Will Ferrell with a tiger face painted on is enough to get anyone’s attention.

But wait! If you keep watching and reading, there’s more!

Off the wall and goofy? Yes. Funny and entertaining? Yes.

But inspiring? Also yes.

I, like you, am still hoping that Will Ferrell will pull a similar prank at a Home Depot…on a Saturday, of course. And, if there’s time, he’d venture over to a nearby store.

Rest assured, if his professor friend is with him, then there would definitely be time for Bed, Bath & Beyond.

This Kingdom’s (Title) Has Come

Jurassic World 2 would not be a great title for the highly-anticipated sequel to Jurassic World.

Thankfully, that won’t be an issue.

Ladies and gentleman, the Jurassic World team is, unlike the viability of a real Jurassic Park, on the right path with the (literally!) just released movie title and poster shown above. The juxtaposition of “Fallen Kingdom” and “Life Finds a Way” sparks an undeniable sense of curiosity one year out from theatrical release into what this story entails and where this story will lead for the third film in this trilogy. The only issue I have (and it’s minor) is the somewhat bland color scheme for the iconic logo in the Jurassic World trilogy’s posters. Maybe the logo’s color, like the story, has a 3-film story arc that won’t bring its full vibrant color scheme to light until the third installment?

Maybe? Hopefully.

However, the slogan (“Life Finds a Way”), the brilliant phrase spoken by Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park back in 1993 (who is in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), is perfect on so many different levels. This brand new movie poster found a way to be modern, yet nostalgically awesome.

Extending Our Brief History in Time

“If humanity is to continue another million years, our future lies in boldly going where no one else has gone before,” Hawking said, BBC reported.

Stephen Hawking continued his remarks.

“To leave Earth demands a concerted global approach, everyone should join in,” he said. “We need to rekindle the excitement of the early days of space travel in the sixties.”

He added one more thing.

“It is time to explore other solar systems. Spreading out may be the only thing that saves us from ourselves. I am convinced that humans need to leave Earth.”

You have our attention, Mr. Hawking.

The famed scientist made this bold delcaration at a recent arts and science festival known as Starmus. This event took place in Norway. Whether or not people or nations rush to join this intergalactic effort (aside from Dubai and the United Arab Emirates, what countries can afford this challenge right now?), the premise of rededicating ourselves to exploring the unknown of outer space is an exciting point to make in remembering America’s historically inspiring recent past. There are countless policies, specifically concerning the economy, entitlement reform and foreign policy/defense, that need to be crafted and enacted. Absolutely. Having said that, exploring space should jump back to being a national priority.

Instantly after reading Mr. Hawking’s eye-opening remarks, a specific film came to mind.

Christopher Nolan’s movies are always an experience and about something more than just the initial story and characters. And it seems that one of the leaders of the scientific community had more to say (knowingly or unknowingly) about the seemingly prescient cinematic event of 2014.

That cinematic event being Interstellar.

The Lesson: Watch more movies.
