The Glue Factory

I get a little tired of all the talk about the next generation. They are going to be world changers. They matter more than the rest of us. They will fix what is unfixable. The adoption of this language, primarily heard in religious communities, shows we have given up and put our very present reality… Continue reading The Glue Factory

After The Peak

TotalFilm.com posted an article about George Lucas hinting at Indiana Jones 5, specifically how he is currently searching for the film’s MacGuffin (think Ark of the Covenant, magic rocks, the holy grail, and crystal skulls).
