I’ve got a few odds and ends to share from this past weekend.
Just in case you haven’t heard, Whitney Houston has died, a sad but sadly unsurprising event. Considering her drug usage in recent years, it was only a matter of time. Rest in peace, Whitney.
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace was re-released in a 3-D edition, and overall the experience wasn’t too bad. Most of the time, I could tell which objects were in front of or behind other objects. However, there were some parts where I wondered if they had forgotten to apply 3-D rendering (as it was originally filmed in 2-D). It seemed to happen where there were scenes with a large number of characters or objects. Aside from a new, digital Yoda, I didn’t notice any other major changes to the movie. Jar-Jar is still there. Whatever feelings you had about Phantom Menace when it first came out probably won’t be any different now. I know most people are waiting for Episode IV to be re-released in 2015.
Last, but not least, I gave the Long Island Radio Dial a bit of a facelift. It has a cleaner appearance and seems to match my blog theme better. I’ve also been poking through the radio station entries in Wikipedia, and noticing how some of them need updates. I started making updates to the WEHM article, and may update others as time permits. Feel free to join me in my efforts.
