My favorite Kickstarter
I know I have ranted over the frustration on space, but this is worth fighting for. It really is frustrating how broken our space exploration system is in terms of leadership (lack there of), budgetary instability (congressional jobs program) and lack of sound project management (orion takes ~15 years from contract to first crewed test flight). will a Chinese space race really be the kick in the pants we need or will those in power continue with the mantra "when China gets to the moon they will see 6 american flags already there"

for those that missed previous rants:
shoot for the Moon short -

Now this is the mission impossible I would pay to see.
Reminding us Chris Farley left us far too soon.

I couldn't help but think a year or so ago during the whole Toronto Mayor's on crack thing that the man to play Rob Ford on SNL would have been Farley... he missed the role he was born for.

Might have to catch this documentary.
 
Wow could you imagine Yaphet Kotto as the captain.
Former Star Trek star William Shatner has made a slew of Trek documentaries in recent years, so when I saw he had a new one about the first few years of Star Trek: The Next Generation, I wasn’t sure if it was worth watching. But it totally was.

Tron has turned in his Identity Disc and left the Grid for good :(
 
Looks like it is End of Line for Bruce. Granted +Disney​ did sort of yank him around and let the fans down with how they handled Tron Uprising.
Bruce Boxleitner was at the Hallmark Channel’s Television Critics Association summer press tour party for his TV series Cedar Cove. I interviewed him about the current season, and then brought up the cancellation of TRON 3 by Disney. Now, even though the recent version of the film is dead, things can always come back around. …

Looks like it is up to James Bond, Dracula and r.l. Stine to help +Sony Pictures Entertainment​ out at the box office the rest of the year.

Did anyone waste money on Pixels?
In November, as she attempted to revive Sony Pictures' fading fortunes, studio co-chair Amy Pascal emailed a note to her chief lieutenant Doug Belgrad. Assessing Sony's lineup for 2015, she wrote, in all caps, "THERE ARE TOO MANY DRAMAS/NOT ENOUGH TENTPOLES/NO OBVIOUS BREAKOUT HITS."

I did. It was far from the worst Sandler movie, and quite funny. The CG was pretty good. 

That said, the rampant misogyny and the fact that Peter Dinklage got into this is mistifying. I'm about 35% ashamed of giving money to this one. The rest of me was too busy laughing.

Our photo shoot with the vehicles and props at +Space City Comic Con this past weekend. unfortunately the landspeeder, snowspeeder and delorean dropped out which was initially why I jumped on the early bird photo offer.
