Awesome Blade Runner polaroids

If you’ve never seen Blade Runner, I can’t recommend it highly enough. I consider it the best science fiction movie I’ve ever seen.┬áMary Sean Young, the actress who played the replicant-who-didn’t-know-it secretary in the movie apparently shot a bunch of polaroids behind the scenes. If you’ve never seen the movie, you probably won’t get as big a kick out of it, but you still get neat old candids of Harrison Ford and others.

  1. Nick,

    While you and I are on opposite sides of the political spectrum, it is SCARY how similar our nerd consumption habits are. By the way, I started reading the Rothfuss book you recommended. It rocks!

    Since your sense of humor seems similar to mine as well, I’d hate to learn that you’ve never seen this website:

      Oh yes, RUP has long been on my radar, but a refresher visit is always worth the time.

      I’m glad you liked the Rothfuss. I finished the second book, then I finished “The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet” (which was a heavier read, but a much better book in the end), so I really need something light to read next. Sadly, it’s Infinite Jest for three months. My hope is to get a week ahead of schedule at some point so I can have a week off to burn through an old Dragonlance novel or something. Yeah, I said it.

      As for how similar the nerd habits are, I have several really good friends from my days back in Pullman, and we all loved (mostly) the same nerd porn; I remember the phase where we were all reading Orson Scott Card, etc. But all of us developed very distinct philosophical/political views. I think this stuff just appeals to people who are fine with enjoying the hypothetical without endorsing it. I’ve always wanted to read Starship Troopers, which supposedly has heavy fascist undertones, to see if I’d enjoy it or not.

      • Ah, D&D. It looks like you, me and pino all have that in common.

        Pino and I joke that we actually learned a lot from that game when all our parents were thinking that we would off ourselves after playing it.

        It taught me Algebra when I was ten and I didn’t even realize it.

        BTW. Read Starship Troopers. It is the complete opposite of the movie. You will like it. The one part I appreciate is that people must earn their citizenship through militay service.

          I actually loved the movie, though I think there was no message there at all. I did like the concept of mandatory public service back in the day, and I think there are definite positives to discuss, but that’s not American, and we’re a long way from incorporating it. Can you imagine how the libertarians would react if we required working for the government before you got to vote? :)
