Wanderers ... the most heart-soaring thing you will see today

Wanderers, by Erik Wernquist, brought to everyone's attention by io9.com is an amazing short film. This is why I love science fiction. Beautiful. Worth every second of the four minutes it will take to watch.

New Star Wars trailer...and the even better Special Edition

There was much anticipation Friday with the release of the first trailer for next Christmas's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Apparently being "Episode VII" just isn't cool. Grumble.)

Overall...meh. I have high hopes that the new Star Wars movie will be awesome. JJ Abrams, Disney...yeah, they have a good-to-great track record. I mean this could be really cool, Star Trek: Into Darkness not withstanding.

The trailer had some "gee, maybe this will be cool" stuff in it, but nothing that made me squee with joy.

And I could really do without the cutesy beachball droid.

But now, we already have Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Special Edition, with all kinds of special enhancements.

Nods, smiles. I approve.
