Alternate History Thursday – Max Headroom


This isn’t exactly very creepy, but it is pretty interesting.  I like unsolved mysteries like this.  It’s not too creepy, no one was murdered, and it’s an overall fun event.  That being said, it wasn’t completely harmless.  One of the key theories as to how this happened can be traced to an alternate time line. … Continued

11/11 – Halo Day


Usually I mark 11/11 as a day of independence, or remembrance.  Well, today we have something to mark both of those things.  The release of Halo The Master Chief Collection.  It contains all 4 of the Halo games that revolve around the Master Chief.  It has been 10 years since Halo 2 was released on … Continued

PBS ruins Sci-Fi


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

Messages in a Bottle


Finding a message in a bottle is a fantasy of many little kids I bet.  Well, reddit user hgbleackley got the surprise of a lifetime when they were younger.  They hastley wrote a note and stuck it in a bottle and threw it over the side of a ferry into the Pacific Ocean.  Well, eventually, … Continued

Jurassic Park IV; Jeff Goldblum


Did You that there’s a 4th Jurassic Park in the works?  It’s called Jurassic World, it’s scheduled to come out next summer.  It’s even got a cast, and director and everything. It’s not directed by Steven Spielberg, so it’s got a so-so chance of being a great addition to the Jurassic Park franchise, but I’ll … Continued

The Singularity


Well, not really, but a pretty good story nonetheless. 365 Tomorrow’s Mind Over Matter is worth the read.  There’s alot of morality in it, but I for one know where I would stand.  If you need any help guessing, just read the byline of this blog – “the robots are coming” That should be more … Continued

Star Wars Music


After a full fledged orchestra, this is how the Star Wars theme should be played, on an old school Church Organ.  On this day in 1977 the first Star Wars film was released to audiences, and it’s safe to say that history was made. Also, I have way more respect for organists now, there’s way … Continued

The Expanse


It’s not very often that a great book series gets turned into a great Television Show, or great Movie series.  Lately, (thanks to the success of Harry Potter), more and more beloved books have made the jump.  The latest series is one I only just started reading a last summer, and one I’m eagerly awaiting … Continued

The Answer


Well the answer to the question of what do the strange unexplained Google Doodles mean has finally been given by Google themselves.  Turns out it was all a celebration of H.G. Well’s birthday, which is today.  He is 143 years old.  That’s old, older the Hitler. And he wrote one of my favorite sci-fi books … Continued

LHC is on! Oh no!


Today is D-Day, Judgment day, the beginning of the end of the world if you want.  The Large Hadron Collider is switched on.  Should be we afraid.  No.  Unless of course it opens a portal to one of those other dimensions.  But it wont, so don’t worry. To celebrate this day, two of my favorite … Continued
