 A Short in which we discuss Star Wars (particularly The Last Jedi) before heading into Episode IX.

With the last chapter in an epic cinema saga (almost five decades in the making) finally before us, we ask the tough questions:

How did Rian Johnson do at the helm of Star Wars? Did he destroy the character of Luke Skywalker? Or did he remain true to the essences of George Lucas' vision?

Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX. This ambitious project? (the brain child of Elon Musk) attemps to provide ubiquitous global satellite Internet access. This man-made constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit, working in combination with ground transceivers.

Ever pondered the "ultimate question of life, the universe and everything?” Have you ever wondered about the nature of existence or even the structure of reality itself? Or what exactly are the limitations of human consciousness?

If so, chances are that along your journey of spiritual discovery, you may have come across names like John Dee, Aleister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, or even Jack Parsons.  Usually followed with words like...

Was Richard Ramirez (the "Night Stalker" serial killer) connected to the Top Secret Army missions code-named "Operation Phoenix" of the Vietnam era?

In this off-the-cuff discussion, Drew rattles on about the spurious possibility that the infamous killer from the 80's was in some way connected to Michael Aquino's secret psychological operations divisions over a decade prior.

Apple famously held their own against the FBI, but they now face two of the biggest names in the tech game in very public disputes.  However, its greatest enemy may lie in the shadows.

Is Apple the vanguard of privacy in an invasive world? The hero we deserve but not the one we need right now? Or a wolf in overpriced sheep's clothing?

You decide.

The future is here.  And this intangible digital frontier we are building needs ways of ensuring that one's digital property is authentic.

But how? And what even is digital property?

A trifecta of blockchain, cryptocurrency,  and Non-Fungible Tokens come together to form the basic structure of this new digital community.

In this off the cuff conversation Markus and Drew discuss their love for a dying cinema technique: the One-Take. 

A  one-take occurs when the entire scene in a film is shot satisfactorily the first time, whether by necessity (as with certain expensive special effects) or by skill with a lot of luck.

Plus, their feeling on the infamous Zack Snyder cut ,  JJ Abrams' love of lens flair, and the strengths and weaknesses  of differen...

Here Markus picks Drew's brain about the complex issues of hate speech, censorship and the  role that the internet tech juggernauts like Facebook and Twitter may or may not have with it.

Will cancel culture consume American society? Will allowing free speech cause hate to grow? Or is the answer to bad ideas good ideas?

Turns out we had more to say about January 6th, its causes, and its possible repercussions.

With a bizarre new narrative of 'multi-racial whiteness'  being pushed by mainstream media in the wake of the Capitol Hill Riot, Drew pontificates with Markus if this division isn't being helped along with the use of Big Tech algorithmic rage engagement in combination with ambitious unscrupulous politicians.

By now, you've probably heard all kinds of things about what happened at Capitol Hill on January 6th, 2021. If you watched any of the footage from the "Insurrection" you probably have a few questions.

How did this happen ? Who's to blame? What's going to happen moving forward?
 
One would think that, in a post 9/11 world,  this kind of massive security failure, despite numerous warnings prior to the event, would b...

After a scathing expose' from the New York Times, and losing support from VISA and MasterCard, Pornhub made sweeping changes to its policies and deleted a massive swath of its videos.

It is a hotly debated issue that is emblematic of the very nature of user generated content platforms and perhaps even the internet itself.

Can behavior be moderated? If so, what is the best method?
