    You’ll find it rather fascinating, if a bit long. It has its “wacky baccy” moments when you might be tempted to zone out, but the work that went 2001: A Space Odyssey is absolutely amazing.

    The shots on the Discovery Spacecraft blew my mind. The attention to detail was astonishing and still holds up to scrutiny today.

    I just watched it in the middle of the night last week, and I found it surprisingly enjoyable

    I see what you did there .

    Incidentally, I recall reading a copy of Mad Magazine in my youth, which exquisitely sent up “2001: A Space Odyssey”, with the black monolith being discovered by the proto-humans, and promptly called....;

    “A Dawn of Man Tape Deck”.....!!!

    It sounded much funnier back then.
    And yes, I DID roll on the floor laughing at that gag!

    We had to evacuate, but returned and things are still there:).

    Air quality is bad right now :eek:.

    Just hoping the lightning that had a small percentage of happening does not;).

    That's what got this all started and if it passes, allows the firefighters to focus on containment of what is already occurring (y).

    That's terrible. Glad you came out unscathed. Very scary.

    When we are leaving we saw the smoke plumes rolling over the next ridge:oops:.

    And it took us 45 minutes to get the 3/4 mile from our development to the freeway:eek:.

    Thankfully no structures destroyed in the city I live in, but others aren't so lucky:(.

    My thoughts are with them(y).

    We are at a wine event in Napa this morning and the air quality here is much better than the other side of the mountains where we live:cool:: 8922B7A0-D222-4F6C-926B-2B02A627167B.jpeg

    So a nice break for a bit(y).

    I've been on the Napa Wine train. Hope you're not driving yourself home. . . .

    PS, Napa was on fire the last time we were there.

    Considering Kubrick's attention to all things gravitational, he really dropped the ball in the on-the-moon conference room scene. Maybe just took some license? It looks nothing like 1/6 gravity.

    It was likely something they couldn't do on screen at the time.

    Yeah I think they just said screw it, take license for the moon scenes. Too: the various zero-gravity cues that are shown, start to get tiresome.
