    this is pretty awesome :dj:

    could be kinda the new way to create music/songs although it is from 2009 ...

    This is really interesting. I was left wondering if it was really an instrument, responding to the objects or if it was staged to appear so. So I looked up ReacTable. I am really interested in the technology behind this.

    Both sons are here for the holiday, and we went to see The Rise of Skywalker. We were not able to see it Sunday because of work.

    I enjoyed it. They enjoyed. There was a scene with young Mon Calamari and another with an Ithorian in the background. I think they did a nice job with the footage of Carrie Fisher. If I had not worked today, I would have watched The Last Jedi before hand.

    So, I was thinking about how Vet Rewards would work in terms of how they are unlocked and gained. I’m sure there might be another post similar to this, but I’ll reiterate. Perhaps there could be a counter that clicks once every time you log in and immediately goes into a 24 cooldown so to speak. You could play for however amount of time, but the cooldown would still continue until it’s up or past the time you logged in. Then afterwards you could get another click on the counter that eventually accumulates towards a reward. Not sure if it’s possible to code in a global clock cooldown per day, but it could be an incentive to log in and check things out.

    I have always liked the idea of Vet Rewards being "spoon fed" to us as oppose to "here they are, all of them, enjoy." It gives one something to look forward to. I say "spoon fed" only because my brain is not providing me with a better word or phrase though I am certain one exists. I realize "spoon fed" could be read as something derogatory. That is not my intention.

    I have been thinking about this today. Note the date is for next Friday. I will see it maybe Sunday. The theater has 12 screens. All but five are for Star Wars.

    Today's rills have no respect for the Jedi.

    If this were old school Disney, the rill would have danced around you, singing a happy rill-song, and possibly help you get dressed.

    Now they beat you up, kill you, laugh, and I bet spit on you after you lost consciousness.

    ... I just can't imagine Rey falling to the dark side and them showing us in the trailer, ...


    Exactly. I eagerly wait for that plot point to unfold.

    My eyesight is really bad, but that looks like Rey wearing the cloak and holding a red light saber associated with the dark side. Intriguing. Will there be a flip flop where Kylo Ren goes to the light side and Ray to the dark? Maybe she becomes the balance in the force, dark and light? Or maybe it is just an image to make our brains go into panic overdrive? ("NO! Rey cannot join the dark side!") To be clear, my brain is not in panic overdrive. I just find it intriguing. Could be her twin sister or a doppelganger.


    I have always liked how red it a lower color on the frequency spectrum while blue is a higher frequency. Age old color symbolism, blue the color of heaven and red the color of hell.

    The YouTube posting seems like ages ago, but August 26 was only a few weeks ago. I have been very preoccupied.

    The second official trailer of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.


    I found an article on COMET TV's web page about a new series. I think it is called The Mandelorian. I say "think" because vision issues have sometimes made reading web pages very difficult. I found a total of three articles about new Star Wars series. Television or big screen? Not sure yet. Problems with cataracts.

    The ProjectSWG server shows it is offline.

    Either Saturday or Sunday it was offline as well. At the time I figured there might be maintenance going on.

    I had some time this morning and found it was still offline or offline again. If work is being done, that's fine. It is not a rush.


    Thanks
