“In the 1960s, the skies above the United States were patrolled by agents of the apocalypse. Air Force B-52 Stratofortresses circled the North American continent, 24 hours a day, cradling two megabombs in their bellies. Those B-53 bombs each weighed 10,000 pounds. Were one to drop on the White House, a nine-megaton yield would destroy all life out into suburban Maryland and Virginia.”

Looks like the — dare I say — “classic” 1980s weekend morning live-action kids series Captain Power is being released on DVD this December.

The Walking Dead: Do Zombies Go Forever?

I honestly can’t remember a time when there’s been as many interesting new sci-fi/horror TV series airing as there are now. Last summer, the first season of the great alien invasion drama Falling Skies debuted on TNT. A few weeks back the time travel epic about man vs. dinosaurs Terra Nova premiered on FOX. And as of late even MTV has gotten in on the fun with a comedy/drama about vampires, werewolves and zombies vs. cops in the new series Death Valley.

But the absolute “king” of the modern sci-fi/horror genera series has to The Walking Dead, the second season of which recently began airing on AMC.

I keep thinking that Terra Nova is going to start getting good, that in just one more episode things will turn for the better and the story of the show will kick in. But after three episodes this just hasn’t happened. Each show of Terra Nova feels like it’s a stand-alone episode without much story crossing over between them like I’ve come to expect with modern sci-fi (Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Fringe, Doctor Who…) series. 

In fact, Terra Nova “feels” like a mediocre 1980s sci-fi series, something in between the quality of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Andromeda

Hand-Drawn Homage to Classic Films

Somebody in this camp ain’t what he appears to be

I’ve been a big fan of the two sci-fi/horror films The Thing From Another World (1951) and the remake The Thing (1982) for many years now. Though both movies deal with the same subject matter, namely an alien invasion fought by the small crew of a far off base, each approaches the material very differently.

In The Thing From Another World, a group of scientists working at the North Pole record the crash of something from space into the ice.

Here’s a listing of every Apple computer I’ve ever owned. I can’t even remember all of the one’s I’ve used at work, but I’d guess that since I started working professionally in ‘98 there have been at least 10 different machines I’ve used at my jobs. And my list doesn’t include things I’ve bought like my iPods, four different ones, iPhones, three, Apple TV, one, iPad, one or the Cube which I bought used on a lark. 

I honestly believe I wouldn’t be where I am today as a professional web developer without these kinds of products and these products wouldn’t exist without a guy like Steve Jobs at the helm of Apple. 

So, thank you, Mr. Jobs, wherever you are.
