It’s a shame that Apple doubles down on the ”Thunderbolt 3 (and mini-jack” are the only connectors needed on a laptop” stupidity.

My dream laptop would be left half current gen MBP (TB3), right half from the old style (USB-A, HDMI and SD card).

I can’t believe that Vangelis’ soundtrack for Blade Runner wasn’t picked.

Iris is certainly a child of her time. Today she was playing with an old Roku remote. She was pretending that it was her phone and while she did press some of its buttons she mostly spoke to Siri on her phone, giving Siri instructions how to drive the imaginary car that she was sitting in.

I had already listened to this episode when it was first released but at that time I hadn’t watched Solo: A Star Wars Story so I skipped that part of the episode. Now that I have watched the movie I went back and listened to the episode.

I enjoyed Grey and Brady’s discussion about it and I’m glad they more or less liked the movie. I agree with them that it probably is the second best new Star Wars movie.

🎞 Watched: Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Since this is a Star Wars movie and today was the first time I watched it I’m probably contractually obligated to write something long but that’ll have to wait for another day. For now, suffice to say it was a really enjoyable movie and I’m looking forward to seeing it again. Alden Ehrenreich – the guy that plays Han – is just perfect for the role!

Snoozefest.

🎞 Watched: Thor: The Dark World

Yet another Marvel movie. This one was definitely or the sillier side and parts of it felt really bad but as a whole still quite entertaining.

Just started watching Thor: The Dark World and I must say, the Thor movies are surprisingly entertaining.

🎞 Watched: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Another highly entertaining movie. The spy thriller elements are more interesting than the action scenes.

🎞 Watched: The Avengers

Now this was a movie that absolutely benefited from me watching a bunch of other MCU movies prior to it. I originally watched The Avengers a few years ago, having only watched the first Iron Man beforehand. I was mildly entertained by The Avengers then, but nothing more. At times it seemed really silly and I didn’t feel engaged.

Fast-forward to yesterday when I was supposed to watch this for a few minutes during my lunch break. Since I had watched most of the preceding MCU movies, I suddenly felt myself caring about the characters and even understanding them. I cared about Captain America, a character that I’d never given a damn about before. I cared about Coulson because I’d seen him in multiple movies. I even understood where Thor came from. And I really cared about Erik Selveig, for more reasons that simply him being played by Stellan Skarsgård.

The result of this was that I blew off work for more than two hours and actually watched the entire movie in one sitting and I had a blast. Two and a half hours of solid entertainment!
