    IN REMEMBRANCE--2021 AD

    Walter Gretzky, father of "The Great One", dead at 82. https://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/walter-gretzky-obituary-1.5937764?fbclid=IwAR1V_xh7-Gkm_xzffh1H47rCaMB-eIFjjz2OfsgFiaGIaJ-GPz-IntMlSeY

    Needing a new avatar...

    Yup, as a Windows PC based photographer, that information definitely would have been helpful for making recommendations. Email it to a friend who has a computer and give the size specs needed?

    Needing a new avatar...

    If you have Windows 10 then Microsoft Paint 3D can resize.

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    Or vanity of a ruler (Louis VII, I believe).

    Super hero tone and changing times

    Just watched this video and immediately thought of the "Superman killing Zod" in the 1980 film "Superman II." The bit at roughly 3 minutes 50 seconds might explain it, at least somewhat. It doesn't seem to have been the original story, as Donner envisioned.

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    Any or all. If you're consuming media by file, you've got at least 2 of them.

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    RAID, multiple drives, Cloud backup ;) I have about hundred GB of video, mostly from Kickstarters ;)

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    Or the DVD/Blu-Ray disks. Or, as is far more common these days, the digital files that you can actually own in perpetuity, and store on media that becomes ever more dense in storage capacity, virtually by the day.

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    There's also the fact that you own that game book and can come back to it 20 years later, if you like, whereas that streaming content is something that can be withdrawn at any moment. is it something that you want effectively in perpetuity, or is it just a thing of the fleeting moment? (Someone...

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    I always loved Andreas Katsulas' over the top style. He would occasionally show up in other SciFi productions like "Max Headroom" and "Alien Nation." And seeing Bill Mumy, all grown up from the kid "Lost in Space", from my childhood, was a treat, as was his cameo in the new "Lost in Space."

    Medieval Toilets: The awful truth!

    Back when I was first learning how to make gunpowder, I came across directions that indicated the powder should be mixed with the 'urine of a man who had much wine to drink' and then pressed into cakes for drying. And as to living in cities, there's a reason why men had wide brimmed hats and...

    Is this the year that theaters die?

    I fully expect that offices in downtown Toronto will continue at relatively low occupancy well after everything is largely sorted. Even I, who do hands-on technical work, will be doing at least one day a week as work-from-home. Right now I'm going in for one day a week, every two weeks, with one...

    Is this the year that theaters die?

    Back in 2018 over 5000 people backed the campaign to save the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, BC. It's a live theatre and single screen movie theatre, that was built in 1938, and was going to be sold. It would likely have turned into condos like the one I mentioned above, in Toronto. I'll probably...

    Is this the year that theaters die?

    I sure hope that it won't be the case. I also fear that it'll be so. We've already lost the magic of going to a tiny 1, 2. or 3 screen theatre to the megaplexes and now it certainly seems like everything will be moving into the home. I saw "Return of the Jedi" in a beautiful, large, 1920s style...

    Superman & Lois

    That involved more than one show. Have a character from another show appear in a different show an that's fine. Tie things into a show that I'm not watching, because I don't like it (or have given up on it), and that doesn't entice me to watch it again. It puts me off the show that I have been...
