Adam continues to tour WETA's Ghost In The Shell labs.  I have to agree with him on this one: NERDGASM!


now lets just hope the presence of ScarJo doesnt royally fuck up the movie any more than necessary.

 

 

okay ive seen Ghost In The Shell now and ScarJo (who in recent years ive really soured on) wasnt a problem at all.

 

and i was very pleasantly surprised. 

 

its been a long time since i watched the original anime, but i almost cannot believe how faithful they were to it.  they gave it the respect it deserves.  and whilst there are aspects to the original narrative and its pacing that i always thought couldve been improved upon, i am glad they didnt try to mess with it too much.

 

I watched the "Standalone Complex" before going to see the movie, but I've been unable to find the original movie (well, for impulse purchase anyway)

 

I recently bought the new movie on 3D Blu ray and watched it on my PSVR, which is much more immersive, but you do have to wear the huge honking headset and headphones and sit in a particular place in front of the camera. and be able to operate the controller or remote blind.

I saw it hit facebook and the place went wild, there was no way I could even dent the madness that got whipped up.

I found the easiest way was to point out that a random AusPost worker would not be internet famous enough to have a verified twitter account.  'Oh,  yeah....'

There was an image going around on twitter - that one, I believe - with someone saying he worked at AusPost and was going to get rid of all the no votes. 

 

Which was unfortunate, because it's from an online shitstirrer and not an AusPost employee.  It sure got people riled up, tho'.

I had a teacher (who should be bright) walk into a computer lab, and completely fail to understand how to turn on a projector.

 

When the Projector was installed, the installer wired into an existing circuit to power it, and labeled it on the switchboard (which at the time, was a box on the wall)

 

Bright teacher thought it was the on-off switch for the projector, and flipped the breaker, which also happened to be connected to half the computers in the room.

 

Sorta at a loss, she took her class back to their room and told me that the projector wasn't working and could I go have a look at it.
