So, my problem recently is that every now and then I get it into my head, “Hey, I should write a Whatever entry about something,” and then I go through the list of things out there to write about, and by and large the emotion I feel about them is “oh, Jesus, like I give a single shit about that right now.”
And it feels great! I am bathed in enjoyable lassitude about pretty much everything right about now. I don’t imagine it will last — it never does, I’m a cranky bastard — but for the moment? It’s kind of lovely. I think I will appreciate it while it lasts.
Interstellar in IMAX was definitely worth the price of admission for me. I can’t say too much without spoilers, but the story was the most ambitious space movie I’ve seen in a good long time. Visually and aurally impressive, Interstellar felt like it succeeded in reaching for something cosmic while tying it to a very human story.
There were only a few moments where I questioned some of the decisions made by Christopher Nolan in constructing the movie; a few Hollywood-ish moments. But I’d recommend seeing it at a movie theatre.
John Mierau is creating a cool, new SF universe. Give it a listen for free (but start with episode 1). Hopefully it leads you to some of wide variety of his other works. I like his creations enough that I’m supporting him on Patreon.
