RIP John McCain
John McCain died this past Saturday at the towering age of 81. He was an American hero in war, a noble role model in politics and, most importantly, in life.
RIP John McCain: An American Maverick.
A Change-Up for Friday
The following song and video just feel like Friday night.
But I can change my mind on that.
Big Bang Theory…Big Bang Theory…Big Bang Theory…Are You There?
‘The Big Bang Theory’ has only one season of fresh “Bazinga!” surprises courtesy of Sheldon Cooper left as the popular CBS sitcom will end after its forthcoming 12th season.
I remember going to the taping of the pilot episode for ‘The Big Bang Theory’ with my dad many moons ago. His hunch about this show that would feature super intelligent yet entertainingly awkward scientists who struggle to deal with the real world as portrayed by the girl next door, Penny, was as spot on as the science boards on the set.
I have so many great memories of that show, which includes seeing a second live taping years later. While I don’t want to confront this show ending with a lengthy article quite yet, I will mention one fun teasing tidbit about the pilot episode:
The original first scene of the series has been cut from reruns on TBS. Not really sure why? Anyways–
I’m gonna save the details of the pilot’s first scene for ‘The Big Bang Theory’ series finale post next year.
That seems fitting, like something Sheldon would do.
When Will Player 2 Be Ready?
‘Ready Player One’ was an awesome movie experience–in 2D and 3D–visualized for the silver screen by legendary director Steven Spielberg from the literary imagination of Spielbergian author Ernest Cline. And the critical success, as well as the box office success, naturally sparks the question:
Will there be a ‘Ready Player Two’ film?
The comprehensive success of the film supports the notion of a sequel. Yes. But it’s the Oasis and what this wildly imaginative virtual world has become since the events of the first film or book (insert your storytelling preference here) that really justifies the necessity for an IMAX-sized sequel.
‘Ready Player Two’ with a bonanza of nineties pop-culture references?
The virtual world needs the Carlton dance and Kelly Kapowski.
