Let’s start off this Friday with something that’s just fun. I had never seen this before, but it’s a total kick, and it’s amazing that this did this entire thing using just practical effects.
Slope of Hope Blog Posts

These are listed in reverse chronological order.

You never would have guessed I’d been busy traveling all weekend, but I made a ton of content on Friday when I had the time and have been publishing it bit by bit. Today, however, it’s going to be nuts for me, so you’ll just have to talk amongst yourselves or tolerate relatively meaningless posts. I’ll resume my normal absurdly bountiful content creation tonight on the plane.
Let’s take a music break with my favorite B-52s song of all time. There’s so much to love.
Whoa! How did I not know about this? As big a Beatles fan as I am (it’s pretty much all I play on the bass guitar), I had no idea Peter Jackson was coming out with a Beatles documentary this year (it releases August 27th). This looks absolutely amazing, and in sharp contrast to the grainy Let It Be (which seems to show a band that is constantly on the verge of breakup), this looks filled with joy (although personally I’d lose my mind having Yoko Ono no more than six inches away from John Lennon morning, noon, and night):
Hangin’ on, hangin’ out
There’s a place for me & you
Hangin’ round, hangin’ free
We got nothin’ else to do
Turn it up, fade it down
Yeah, that song it saved my life
Perfect teeth a perfect smile
Oh, she was a friend of mine
Let’s go out to the place
Where the hands of time are slowed
No one walks, no one dies
No more hassles anymore
