  7. (Do you see this show surviving and being a presence 50-100 years in pop culture?)

    Yes. Because we were right. The thing we made was right. The network was wrong. We were right, the universe was fully realized and very cool.

  13. The latest film from Brick director Rian Johnson is a brain-bendingly awesome take on organized crime and time travel. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis are the leads in this long-anticipated tale of what would happen if the mob had a time machine.

  21. Now you’ve got theme park rides as the source material of movies. The only things left are breakfast cereal mascots. In our lifetime, we will see Johnny Depp playing Captain Crunch.

  25. John Gruber asks “Not sure how they’re going to justify that later this year if iPad-esque Windows 8 tablets hit the market on schedule”. I think they’ll justify it quite easily: Windows 8 tablets will count as PCs because they run Windows, a PC OS, but iPad still won’t because they run a smartphone OS. Similarly they won’t count Android tablets as PCs.

    I predict the industry will put Windows 8 tablets into their own category, ultra-tablets or some such, and continue to avoid direct marketshare comparisons to the iPad or to ebook readers even though the functions of all these devices will overlap more and more.
