A Blade Runner Kind of Sounds Like a Snow Plow

The expression goes “when it rains, it pours.” Currently, in Columbus, Ohio, that expression can be amended to “when it snows, it’s your chore, there’s always more and where’s my shovel from Thor.”

Yeah, it’s snowing a lot here in the midwest. And the single-digit temperatures coupled with layers of ice sadly don’t encourage snow fights and building a snowman outside. So, with that in mind, maybe it’s best if we imagine the snow is actually rain for a moment. There’s an inherent tranquility in the rain. For even more imaginative fun, let’s coincide this soothing day-dreaming with today’s Blu-ray release of the visually stunning science-fiction sequel Blade Runner 2049. 

“Rain” + Blade Runner 2049 =

Rain in the future (according to Hans Zimmer) sounds nice.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. changed the way generations of Americans dream. And as millions of us honor Dr. King’s powerful legacy of peace today, his civil rights message defined by the words “I have a dream…” will continue to inspire the many generations to come. When faced with troubles, personal and societal, Dr. King is a popular reference in finding the motivation to succeed.

Exhibit A I Have a Dream:

Martin Luther King Jr.’s life tragically ended far too soon at age 39. However, we can take solace in knowing his legacy lives on.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

From AC to DC

There’s only one way to enter this weekend, especially with a winter storm hitting:

On a train.

More specifically, a train that’s (trust me) rocking and rolling…

Lucky for us, Friday’s party train arrives every week.

Tales from the Krypt

Coming to your favorite blog near you (as fast as a speeding bullet) is the first trailer for the new TV series Krypton.

One of the leading creative minds behind Christopher Nolan’s highly-acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy, writer David S. Goyer, is the executive producer on Krypton. This pre-Superman planetary vision looks intriguing and surprisingly impressive, particularly for TV. Recall that SYFY is the network that has given the world the admittedly and proudly campy Sharknado movie series. Moreover, Krypton will have the added challenge of keeping audiences happy with and interested in the evolving Superman story in relation to the major motion pictures. The Man of Steel sequel continues to be pushed further into the unknown future, but Krypton success could help move the needle for a release date to sooner rather than later. We will keep our fingers crossed.

After all, the “S” stands for hope, right?

Krypton will premiere on SYFY on March 21.
