Joyous new arbitrary orbital period around our nearest stellar body! And, hey, I actually did a podcast only a week after the previous one! Shocking, I know! I was not surprised at all to hear that ISP abuses of customers due to the revoking of Net Neutrality were happening. I was surprised to learn that Comcast wasn’t the first! 

Oh, don’t worry. They’re working on it, but Comcast tends to be more devious, like giving you something great now (say, an increase in speed) before screwing you later on and hoping that you don’t notice it.

  1. I saw Phantom Tread @ Arclight Hollywood. Both 70mm prints. The print in aud. 3 is better than the one in
    aud. 6. Both look biochemically produced. Great movie too, you should go and see it in 1080p video at your local cinema. I talked to an employee and He said it’s been their most popular film ever. I don’t know if He meant movies in general or ones made available on film.
