Speak, Nerd, and Enter!

So, everyone, what’s up?

Apologies for slow posting last week, things have been wacky! Still excited it’s October, not excited the heat is already blasting in our apartment building!

I finally was able to watch some Westworld and am enjoying it even though it’s seeming like a really slow burn so far. Hoping, like I said in this video, that doesn’t turn viewers off. Also, rented Taika Waititi’s (Thor: Ragnarok director) Hunt for the Wilderpeople last night. I highly recommend it. And not just because I visited New Zealand this year. :)

    I blame you, Jillian Hepsiba Pantozzi. After your whole “the Jerry Lewis telethon doesn’t exist anymore!!!” I make *one* small donation in memory of a late friend who had MD, and I’m still on the mailing list over a year later. Thanks a ton… ;-P

    I’m liking Westworld a lot– it’s diving into some ideas more deeply than Crichton ever did with the movie, and I think it’s the perfect Abrams concept, in terms of the main question I find myself asking about the show, which is who is/isn’t a “host” in the park or control facility (this last episode really made me question that second part more closely). Why it’s perfect for Abrams is the whole conceit of the show is in the main question in the pilot: if you can’t tell, does it matter? It’s a twisty kinda question, because it comes into play with regard to the brutality from Ed Harris’s character, the indifference from the guests, if the awareness of the hosts is even something that should be “allowed”, etc.

    Also, Supergirl did Superman better than the last four Superman movies. And the fact that Clark has charm with women strangely didn’t bother me as much as I thought it might have.
