I like Jude Law, he’s sadly not appreciated as much as he should be.  I also like Nazis, so when I saw this trailer, I was admittedly excited.  Afterall, what could go wrong?  Well, alot of things, but I’m not going to worry too much about that, I’m going to be excited and hopefully go … Continued

PBS ruins Sci-Fi

0

PBS has done the regular “science as we currently understand it” take on popular Science Fiction battles.  Easily glossing over the 2nd word of the genera’s title, fiction.  Sure, if you take what we currently know of physics, and the current levels of technology that we have, space battles would largely be uneventful, boring, and … Continued

I love me a good air show.  I’ve traveled the country to go to some, none of the “best ones” but one out at Nellis AFB, and one in Chicago.  If you’ve never been to an air show you have to go.  Try to go to one that’s at a U.S. Air Base if you … Continued
