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.

StudioADI Amalgamated Dynamics Inc

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

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!

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.

Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt Made in California

Thing Thoughts: Taylor Stitch has Gone Global

There’s nothing I love more than small local homegrown businesses that put out exceptional quality stuff via local manufacturing. One of the businesses I love that does that is Taylor Stitch, although they aren’t so much anymore and that makes me sad.
