This is the latest installment in a very sporadic series of posts known as Random Thought Thursday. How sporadic? The last one was from May 26, 2016.
So apparently, although the Matrix appears capable of generating a seemingly infinite supply of dead chicken meat (which I've talked about before in this post), it is unable to produce an equally infinite supply of fresh, pre-cut-and-bagged broccoli florets.
If you've been reading this blog for a while, then you know that I'm a big fan of The Magicians on SyFy as well as its original source material novels by Lev Grossman. Well, Season 4 is underway and I must say, the show has reached the point - especially now that it's completely off-book - where I don't understand what is going on half the time. But I still love it anyway.
Speaking of loving stuff, have you seen the new powder blue Spring Training uniforms the Seattle Mariners are wearing? They are super-duper-awesome. Most of the expectations for the team this year are very low, but I have a feeling they're going to surprise some people, not only because of these cool ST unis (as well as the fact that they ditched the bad-luck upside-down-trident logo) but also because of the spec screenplay I wrote that involves baseball and magic (and anime and philosophy). Which, if it ever gets made into a movie, I'll tell you more about. Much more.
Speaking of have-you-seen-stuff, did any of you see the episode of The Orville a couple of months ago (wow, I can't believe it's been that long already) called "Home"? You know, the one where - spoiler alert - Alara leaves the show, I mean, the ship? There was a scene in it where one of the characters was making what was obviously meant to be an allegorical comment on the whole vaccination/autism debate, and the term they used to stand in for autism was "Torin's Syndrome." Now, as some of you may know, my son - who is on the autism spectrum and was the original inspiration for the Joel Suzuki series - is named Torin. Coincidence? You decide...
