Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void – Collector’s Edition

It’s been a short while since I have played Starcraft II. This new expansion breathes new life into the game and definitely makes me want to get back into it. If you like strategy games, I would definitely give it a try. This new expansion includes all versions of the game, so you don’t have to buy each expansion.

Dream Log – November 7, 2015 8:46AM

I wanted to start keeping a log of my dreams, so I thought that this would be a fun place to log them permanently.

I keep a composition book by my bed so I can write them down while they are fresh.

In this particular dream, I was in the future. I couldn’t remember a year or anything, I just know it wasn’t current day.

I was attempting to consume this new drink, but I had difficulty figuring out how to open it up. I eventually opened it, but I remembered it being very strange in comparison to how we open drinks today.

It was basically sparkling water with only 1 added ingredient. It was a new type of sweetener. Don’t ask me if it was artificial or not. I remember reading the name of the ingredient listed, but I couldn’t remember it when I woke up. I know it used 5% of this ingredient and it tasted amazing.

I also remember it being a product of Louisiana.

I think this dream could have been triggered from a craving for a soda pop while I was sleeping. Who knows, but I was in the future! 🙂




Hubble 25th Anniversary

One of my favorite images from the Hubble telescope has to the “Pillars of Creation” in the Eagle Nebula. It is only 7,000 light years away. I know that may sound far away with current technology, but traveling to distant places will one day be available. 🙂

Pillars of Creation

The Hubble telescope was launched 25 years ago on April 24, 1990.

I found this video highlighting some amazing photos taken by the Hubble telescope. Sadly, it is predicted that the telescope will no longer be functional by the year 2040. Perhaps our kids will launch Hubble 2 in the near future. 🙂

The Wizard (1989)

Yes, I loved this movie and was just thinking about it. They finally released it on DVD a few years ago.

It would be amazing to see it released in full high definition, but I think we were lucky enough to just get it on DVD.

I thought about collecting the LaserDisc version to just have it, and maybe frame it on the wall. I absolutely loved this movie as a child. You had to watch it in 1989 as a child to really enjoy it.

Today, it’s just not the same as an adult to watch it.

The future has finally arrived!

Great Scott!

It has finally arrived! We are now in the future. If you are a kid of the 80’s like me, then you know the future has finally arrived today.

I remember as a kid daydreaming of what it would be like when the day arrived when Doc and Marty traveled to the future.

If you somehow have forgotten over the years, I am referencing the movie Back to the Future II. Doc and Marty arrive in the future on the date October 21, 2015.

Let me make this clear, I do not want to see a “reboot” of the movie in any way whatsoever. It’s a classic and should be left alone.

Pizza!

Perhaps, there could be a part IV where Doc’s kids are grown up and have some sort of crazy adventure through time in that awesome time train Doc created.

After the DeLorean was destroyed. 🙁

DeLorean destroyed

I am not a screenwriter in any way, but I think this could work. I know I am just dreaming.

I know this is not Star Wars, but I never wanted Back to the Future to end.

I was very sad when I saw the words “The End” at the end of part III. I wanted it to keep going and going.

Let’s just relish in the fact that we have finally arrived in the future!

Sadly, I don’t see flying cars around, yet.

Back to the Future II

On a side note, I would love to own this car so freaking bad.

Sleep is a precious commodity…

I came home from work today at about 5:15pm and booted up my computer like usual and then looked at the bed. I was like, screw this, I’m taking a nap. My girlfriend calls me at 8pm and wakes me up wondering why I haven’t texted her back. I didn’t mean to sleep that long, but it was nice. I don’t have much time to play on the computer tonight but that’s okay, my body must have needed the rest. At least her phone call woke me up. I would have been rather sad if I didn’t talk to her at all this evening. We are rather close and I love that woman with all of my heart. <3
