There's going to be a total solar eclipse on August 21st, the first one in the US in 26 years! Unfortunately, California is not in the path of totality, but that just provides a good reason for a road trip! Are any of you going to see it?

Very cool. Includes actual imagery of the Huygens probe landing on Titan!

This game looks pretty cool. You construct your own sailboat out of junk and then sail it.

I don't have the words to describe how impressed I am with this game's technology. You can travel from deep space into a planet's atmosphere, land, get out of your ship, and walk around the entire planet, all without any load screens or discontinuities. Everything is rendered in high detail, and these aren't generic planets that all look the same. There is hand-placed content, characters, and missions. I've wanted to make a game like this for years. They beat me to it.

It's Maker Faire weekend, and I made something. I started working on a game in my spare time a month ago. This is the first alpha release.

Right now it's just a walking simulator. Go for a hike in the mountains. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and the sunrises and sunsets. I'll add gameplay over the next year to turn it into a survival fantasy RPG city builder, kind of like Minecraft but with towns you can grow and manage.

Right now the game is only available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. I haven't tested it on anything other than my Mac, but it probably requires a pretty decent system. Give it a try, if you're curious.

I really enjoyed Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It's a very imaginative fantasy with several strong performances brought to the screen with a more restrained hand than Tim Burton is usually known for. I loved the world the film is set in. It's magical, fanciful, and adventurous. Also, the 3D is among the best I've ever seen. It's very smooth and clear.

However, the antagonist is more comical than threatening, and I was expecting a grander and more exciting third act. These flaws did not compromise my enjoyment of the film, but they could be a problem for people who don't love fantasy. If you like Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, or Dr. Who, you'll probably enjoy this film. I hope there's a sequel.

Note that although this film is young adult / children's story, leave the young kids who still believe in monsters home. It will be too scary for them.

50 years ago tonight my mother put me on her lap, and we watched the premiere of Star Trek together. I was 13 months old, and I've been a science fiction fan ever since. When I was a bit older, I didn't want to be a fireman or a police officer; I wanted to be a starship captain. I still want to explore the galaxy, but now I'd be happy to fly a Firefly class ship.
