Having Seen Iron Man 3

After hurrying back the night before on very late a train from Los Angeles (arriving back in San Diego around 1:00 am), I awoke early in the morning to drive down to Chula Vista to watch a matinee of the number one movie in the world, the recently released “Iron Man 3” with my best …

Night Skies

Stunning new time-lapse video with some really cool ways of displaying segments and detail information. T-RECS – Night Skies from T-Recs (Timelapse Recordings) on Vimeo.

House No More

Watched the House retrospective as well as the series finale with some sadness because of how much I really enjoyed this show. I will absolutely miss this series. With the retrospective, it’s always cool to see the natural interaction between the actors when they’re not performing on camera. I’m glad they interviewed as many cast …

The Avengers – The Best

Went to see The Avengers today (opening day) with Sylvia and Rodrigo. Came away convinced that this was absolutely, hands down, the best superhero movie ever made. Joss Whedon has proven his big-budget movie-making genius. Action, drama, dialogue, humor, pathos…this movie had it correct in spades. Wonder Woman, schmunder woman. He should be extremely proud …

Star Wars on the Organ

Finally edited and uploaded to YouTube the video I captured on my cell phone of the closing credits theme to Star Wars: A New Hope performed at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park here in San Diego. It was recorded during the Earth Fair festival on Earth Day, April 22. It sounded much better …

The Beauty Of Pollination

Absolutely stunning slow-motion photography. The barrel-rolling hummingbird is my favorite part, but the massive number of Monarch butterflies is mesmerizing.

Réflexion

I love both the idea behind this as well as the way it was animated. Very creative.

Booty Swing

Ever since I heard this song on a Las Vegas Cosmopolitan commercial, Electro Swing has become one of my new favorite genres.

On The Water

Wonderfully hypnotic video I found on Vimeo. Very well done.

Health Fair At Seaport Village

Met Sylvia and Rodrigo over at Seaport Village as they were out walking their fur-kids, Lilo and Stitch. We ended walking through a Health Fair that was going on at the same time and were given free samples of O.N.E. Coconut Water (which I surprisingly found kind of disgusting) as well as bottles of Solar Rain drinking water, …

Dinosaur Lecture By Jack Horner

Was fortunate enough to attend an evening lecture and book-signing by world-renowned paleontologist Dr. Jack Horner at the San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park. The event had sold out within a couple of days. The presentation lasted a little over an hour and covered mainly infant and juvenile dinosaurs and the mislabeling of …

The Most Astounding Fact

Wonderful video put to a TIME magazine interview answer by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, who was asked the question, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?”

Fun And Frustration

To the delight of all us Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie fans, here is the first of five segments of a reunion documentary which aired in 2010. The two friends were brought back together on camera for the first time fifteen years after their final taping of “A Bit of Fry and Laurie.” The fun …

Hungarian Phrase Book

On days when not much happens, I can always count on Monty Python to help me post something worth watching.

8: A Play About The Fight For Marriage Equality

Tonight, by pure happenstance, I came across a play called “8” that was performed and streamed live on YouTube and presented by the American Foundation for Equal Rights. From their website: “George Clooney, Martin Sheen and Jane Lynch join an all-star cast for a one-night-only benefit reading of “8,” the new play by Academy-award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black …
