jdbrew linked to this video explaining an insane (what I’m calling Fan) theory regarding The Matrix.
I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I understand that it’s 15 minutes long which include an unnecessary minute long intro, and (on my watch 2 (two)) pre-roll ads.
Anyway, read the title of the post, then think what Neo is supposed to be, then switch them up. That’s the gist of this theory. Yes it was posted 5 years ago, yes I am just seeing it today. Deal with it.
Survivor is 20 years old! In 40 seasons of reality television that’s the equivalent of being elected President.
I remember watching Survivor back in the day when it was on Thursday Nights, I watched up until All Stars, then I graduated High School and fell out of the weekly TV rotation. Apparently I missed some of the more iconic moments in the show’s history. When I came back into it a few years ago there were these things called Hidden Immunity Idols. WTF?
For it’s iconic season, Survivor is bringing back 20 previous winners and pitting them against each other to try and win a $2 million prize. Like me, there will be a few players who never played with a hidden immunity idol before, but I’m sure they will know about it.
This is pretty intense, it looks cool, but I also bet that it has a tacky feeling to it. You know, from afar it looks pretty cool, but when you get up close, it’s kinda blah, kinda not worth it. You know kinda just “why”.
I had no idea today is National Penguin Awareness Day. I had no idea that was a thing. But apparently it is, it’s a holiday, though not for the reasons above.
One of the key reasons we choose New Zealand for our Honeymoon was the chance to see Penguins. We got to see 3 or 4 of them while we were at Lake Moeraki Lodge, it took a few hours to wait for them, but it was worth it to see the ocean deposit those dumbs to the shore.
Last week it snowed in Joshua Tree National Park. That’s rare because it’s a desert, but it’s also pretty frekin awesome looking as attested by this 360 video:
This was shot on the new GoPro Max. I remember that GoPro was trying to get into the 360 camera business for awhile but when I was going to Alaska they weren’t ready. I think it’s safe to say that this camera is pretty good and might be worth the upgrade eventually.
I wish I could get to a National Park right after or during a snowfall. I was in Yosemite a few years ago and there was snow on the ground, but nothing fresh. I was also in Sequoia and Kings Canyon the same time, and similarly there was snow on the ground. The closest would probably be the trip to Mount Rainier last year, it did snow on us for a bit, but only up in the elevation. That was pretty cool.
