Destiny 2 S10: Season of the Worthy Initial Impressions

I started playing Destiny 2 again last week and just managed to complete all of the missions that I had to do. It was a close thing. In between server issues, and not being able to matchmake with players good enough to simply run a forge, it was getting tedious. So the end of the season came as a bit of a relief, because there will be more players flocking to the game.

Star Trek Picard S01E05-06 Stardust City Rag & The Impossible Box

Well, now I guess we get to find out how 7 of 9 made her way into the narrative. There’s no denying that she was going to appear, since the Romulans are “excavating” an old Borg Cube. They’re searching for Bruce Maddox, the so-called creator of the new androids.

Star Trek: Picard S01E03-04

I’m not sure exactly why, but I kinda saved ep 3 so that I could watch two episodes at the same time. Was it a shock that Picard is no longer welcome to the top brass of Starfleet? I guess it’s part of the premise of the show.

His Dark Materials (HBO, BBC)

I’m not sure why, but I’ve never really been a fan of the HDM movies. They felt kind of bad. I know that I’ve watched them but I actually don’t remember much of the story. I remember daemons and that kids were involved in some fashion.

The Expanse S04

I was pretty happy that Amazon Prime had picked up The Expanse for a 4th season. It’s quite a compelling show, and one of the few science fiction shows still on TV. To be honest, it had been so long since I had watched the show or read the books that I needed a recap before diving in.

Game of Thrones S08E03 The Long Night Is The Worst GOT EP Ever

When I watched this episode, I thought it was OK. But the more I thought about it, the worse it got. It’s probably the worst GOT episode ever. It’s so far off the source material that it’s completely something else.

Warning: spoilers ahead!

2015 AGV Pista GP & Corsa Review

When AGV released the Pista GP, it was pretty spectacular as it’s the only motorcycle helmet that I know that was designed with Finite Element Analysis. This is a technique to optimize and approximate missing data from known quantities. It’s pretty cutting age and processor intensive, but it does give good results. The Pista GP was made of 100% carbon fiber, while the Corsa used a blend of carbon fiber, fiberglass, and aramid.
