Grow – Koyamori Illustration Art Book Review

Grow is the first art book by the Asian-Canadian illustrator who goes by the pen name Koyamori. Utilizing primarily water-colors and equipped with an acute color sense, Koyamori creates stunning illustrations with her subject matters often inspired by natural elements like plants, creatures, water and stars. The artist hopes “to create a sense of peace and comfort for those who see her art work”, and it certainly works for me; I especially find her harmonious use of colors quite soothing to m...

The Story Behind: The Extraordinary History Behind Ordinary Objects

The Story Behind: The Extraordinary History Behind Ordinary Objects is a book compiling short stories of object origins, taken from the podcast of the same name by Emily Prokop. When I was a kid, before the internet became what it is and destroyed traditional publishing, I gobbled up books like these. It was so cool learning where things came from and bits of trivia around their creation. The Story Behind taps into that same appeal. Each chapter runs only 4-6 [...]

‘Aquaman’ Gets a Spoonful of Sugar from Julie Andrews

With Mary Poppins Returns heading to theaters next month, you might think that it’s a no-brainer that the original film’s star Julie Andrews would be making some kind of appearance in the Disney sequel. However, the actress has already confirmed she didn’t want to take away from Emily Blunt inheriting the role of the magical nanny, so she’s not popping up in Mary Poppins Returns. Instead, another major December release has been graced with the talents of Julie Andrews. Aquaman has been complete...

Keanu Reeves is Voicing a Character in ‘Toy Story 4’, and We Might Have Seen Him Already

Not too long ago, we got our first look at Toy Story 4, which included a glimpse at some new toys coming to the franchise. The first teaser trailer introduced us to Forky, a craft-like “toy” made out of a spork, pipe cleaner and googly eyes. Then a second teaser introduced us to some carnival stuffed animals voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. But those aren’t the only new characters we’ll be seeing in Toy Story 4. On Thanksgiving, a new episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fal...

A Mosquito-Man – review

Director: Michael Manasseri Release date: 2016 Contains spoilers Science goes mad and creates a mosquito human hybrid… its actually not an unheard of trope and the madness of the science is underlined by the fact that in every example (as well as this film we have also looked at Mansquito & Weresquito: Nazi Hunter) the mosquito human hybrid is male… and male mosquito’s don’t drink blood (they actually feed on tree sap, it’s the female mosquito that feeds on blood). Ok… perhaps that is thinking ...

This Week In Trailers: To Dust, Piercing, The Vanishing, Arctic, American Renegades

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get secluded on an island with Gerard Butler, try to get away with murder, watch as Ferris Beuller becomes a mensch, see what a p...

My SOTA Battery Journey

Batteries are a necessity for portable operation, including Summits On The Air (SOTA) activations. In situations where I’m using a handheld transceiver, it has its own battery. I might carry a spare battery or two, depending on how long I intend to operate. I also make use of my Yaesu FT-817 (mostly for 2m ssb/cw) and a small 2m/70cm FM transceiver (Yaesu FT-90). The FT-817 has an internal battery pack but I worry that it will run out of charge during the activation. The FT-90 needs a battery to...

Desktop Wallpaper Sites You Must Check Out

While computer make-overs aren’t really a thing, the quickest and cheapest way to give your system a new look is to spruce up your display with a snazzy new desktop wallpaper. I’m pretty selective when it comes to desktop wallpaper, only the very best high resolution, HD quality images will do for my setup. Below are four of my favorite desktop wallpaper sites. Unsplash: In my opinion, this is the grand daddy of all desktop wallpaper sites. Beautiful, high quality photos by some of the best p...

Generation Wealth, Consumerism, and the Decline of Civilization

Lauren Greenfield's Generation Wealth compiles all of the director/writer/photographer's work of the past 20 years into one extended meditation on the evil effects of our consumerist/materialist culture, and I found the movie compelling when I wasn't pleasantly bothered by its bleak implications.Greenfield likes to explore the story arcs of the lives of rappers, moguls, porn stars, Wall Street broker types, plastic surgery enthusiasts, and high level Las Vegas hostesses when she doesn't return ...

Partly-baked idea: Reorganize the ARRL Field Organization?

A couple of days ago, I got an email from a reader who was upset that his section manager (SM) had stated that he was not going to cooperate with one of the recently-elected division directors. Apparently, he was disappointed in the outcome of the election, and even though the director-elect extended an  olive branch, the SM said, “[I] will not support you” That got me to thinking about the section manager position and the ARRL Field Organization in general. The section manager (SM) is really ...
