[UPDATED] Thing Thoughts: The OneWheel Is For Social Media Influencers

[UPDATED] Thing Thoughts: The OneWheel Is For Social Media Influencers onewheel

…and if there’s one thing I never was or will be, it’s a social media influencer, ergo, the OneWheel was a mistake for me. I also value my knees, and my overall physical health and wellbeing, and the OneWheel does not really take any of those things into account as a means of personal short range transportation…very short range transportation that’s a pain to carry when it’s time to do that.

Rover Thoughts: So Far, Bertram’s Doing Okay…

Rover Thoughts: So Far, Bertram’s Doing Okay… rover

Well, if I’m being completely honest, Bertram the Range Rover Sport L320 doing only okay in terms of reliability and cost. If you want to look at the RoverLog Spreadsheet, you can see that since purchasing Bertram in March of 2018, I’ve spent a $5,500 on it (in round numbers). But that total doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story.

Geek Thoughts: San Diego Comic-Con 2018

You know how there are things nearby you that you never do because they’re nearby you and so you figure you can do them any time but then one day you’re on your deathbed and realized you never did those things, well, for me that was San Diego Comic-Con, almost.

[UPDATED] Movie Thoughts: Touring the Creature Effects Shop StudioADI

[UPDATED] Movie Thoughts: Touring the Creature Effects Shop StudioADI StudioADI Amalgamated Dynamics Inc

When I was 12, I attended a showbiz expo in LA where one of the exhibitors was Cinefex Magazine. Their current issue showcased the work of two incredibly talented effects artists, Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr. and their company Amalgamated Dynamics Inc.’s work on David Fincher’s Alien3. I still have that issue of Cinefex and have been fans of their exceptional practical effects work since. In 2018, they opened their facility for a small tour and I got to see firsthand the scope of their incredible work in person, including pieces that figured prominently in Alien3. It was a pilgrimage to say the least and an experience I’ll never forget.

Rover Thoughts: The RoverLog is Live!

Rover Thoughts: The RoverLog is Live!

The RoverLog will be the central repository of all relevant data I can think of with regards to maintaining, servicing, and repairing the 2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport L320 I bought in 2018 with 126,000 miles on the odometer. I hope this log serves to entertain, inform and educate on just what a high mileage vehicle like this needs to stay running. I fully recognize that this Rover is going to need work. It’s no spring chicken, but I love it. This is an objective log of the TLC it will get from here on out. For further info, an explanation of the spreadsheet is included in the spreadsheet as well.
