When I saw an early screening of “Gran Turismo,” the end credits had a format logo that I haven’t seen before. Most movies will have the format logo for Dolby Cinema and/or IMAX. “Gran Turismo” had a ScreenX format logo.
What is ScreenX?
ScreenX offers a panoramic viewing experience by projecting the movie on three screens. Since I enjoyed watching “Gran Turismo” on IMAX, I saw the movie on ScreenX.
I warned a friend that he needed to dust out the PC that I helped him build in 2020. If he doesn’t dust out his PC, the dust bunnies will torch a component that he can’t afford to replace. He ignored my advice for three years, as dusting out his PC would be a major chore.
The PC started having random crashes a few months ago. Since he was a member of the Windows 11 developer program, it was easy to blame Windows for the crashes.
As the random crashes became more frequent, the error messages pointed towards memory. I ran Memtest on the PC and found a ton of memory errors.
Every year I clean up my TrueNAS file server and figure out what I need to replace or upgrade. This year I wanted to replace a 1TB hard drive with a 2TB hard drive and expand my storage from 5TB to 6TB. I wasn’t able to find 2TB hard drives on sale at a price I wanted to pay for.
During the early months of the COVID-19 shutdown, I really needed a haircut. With the barbershops closed, I had to give myself a haircut. I used my electric trimmer to cut back my hair and my razor blade to shave my head bald.
That was three years ago.
I’m still shaving my head bald even though the world went back to normal and COVID-19 remains a lingering threat. Men who shaved off a full head of hair are confident, dominant and masculine. Otherwise known as the Bruce Willis effect.
The first episode of Marvel’s “Secret Invasion” premiered this week on Disney Plus. Nick Fury, played by Samuel Jackson, and Maria Hill, played by Cobie Smulders, take on the “bad” Skrulls. Alien shapeshifters who want to start World War III and claim Earth as their new home. The unexpected cliffhanger ended with the “fridging” of Maria Hill.
Last weekend I went to the FoodieLand Night Market at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds in San Jose. Over 170 vendors served food from around the world. Tickets were $7 per person (online only) and parking was $15 (credit card only). Vendors accepted cash and credit cards.
FoodieLand Night Market started at Berkeley in the summer of 2019. They rebounded from the COVID-19 shutdown and the pandemic restrictions of the last three years. Hosting 15+ annual events throughout California and Las Vegas.
As far as I know, this was their first time in San Jose.
According to Casey Neistat, New York City has the worst air quality on the planet. From my perspective in California, I’ve seen much worse from the annual wildfires. Or when Pacific Gas & Electric tries to burn down the state.
Wildfire smoke from Canada is blowing down into New York City and the East Coast. Many people there haven’t experienced that kind of air quality since the 1960s. One way to protect yourself while outside is to wear a face mask.
