Mashable: The exact moment the 1-year crew arrived at the International Space Station.

The Instagram vid is sped up, making it look quite ... nerve-wracking ... when it’s not.  The guidance computers seem to be rock-solid. Totally cool.

OK. The animations are just childish ... did we really need them? Why not use real video, if you feel the article needs that kind of embellishment?

Audio’s turrible, but Jeff Beck and ZZ Top doing “Rough Boy”.

May 2, 2015. If you’re a Beck fan, you know the song - according to Jeff himself - pulled him out of one of his ‘disappearing act’ periods and restored his faith that guitar still had a place in music. Thank goodness Billy whipped this one out when he did.  Also - a slew of current tour videos are appearing on YT. I want to hear a decent recording of “A Change is Gonna Come”!!

OpenCulture: Carl Sagan Issues a Chilling Warning to America in His Last Interview (1996).

We’ve arranged a society on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces.” You tell ‘em, Carl.

Telegraph.UK: Why do so many liberal parents hate Thomas the Tank Engine?

Are Thomas shows indoctrinating your children in Stalinist propoganda? A bit overwrought, to my ears ... but I haven’t watched an episode in many years.

Do we know how to replace the benefits offered by religion?” The similarities between internet social media and religion come strongly to mind.

Apple Support: Pro Video Format 2.0.1 asks me to update it repeatedly ...

One of those days. I downloaded the Apple software update after reapplying the blasted update twice in the App Store, made sure it installed properly, and then just chose to ‘Hide this Update’ in the App Store, rather than purchase Pacifist. Posted this for others suffering this particular malady.

The new Star Wars trailer dominates the ‘net today.

The first original film caught my imagination while I was graduating high school. My college buds and I, later that year, sat through like twelve consecutive showings. The two followups left me cold; similar to The Matrix trilogy, they never approached the promise of the first film (IMHO). [Going against the prevailing currents - I hear The Empire Strikes Back is now considered the best of the three.] I’ve not seen the second trilogy, nor have I ever heard an abiding reason to do so.

However, for those about ten years my junior, and even younger - wow, man. The level of enthusiasm is incredible for such basic little trailers. More power to you. Harrison Ford always stole the scenes, as far as I’m concerned ... and looks like he’ll be doing so again. Of course I’ll go watch these as they come out. This first one better knock our socks off.
