It’s hard to pick a favorite TV-series in the world of TV-series, but I have to say that Dexter is one of them for me.
I’ve been wanting to re-binge the series for quite some time, and now is a great time to do just that, since they’ve announced a new season. This’ll be the first season since the series ended in 2013, and if I ever wanted a reboot or continuation of something… this must be it! 😍
Some details from imdb.com:
Sidenote: Michael C. Hall, the actor who plays Dexter, was in a musical by David Bowie some years ago. The performance was close to how it would’ve been with David Bowie himself I think.
Yesterday, May 8th, was David Attenborough’s 95th birthday. Here’s to 95 more! 🥂
I’ve been listening more and more to London Grammar, which is in a genre (indie pop) I never really listen to unless it’s on the radio or in a movie/TV-show.
Their new album was released yesterday, and they had a release concert on YouTube with an after party for YouTube’s Premium members. I fell asleep so I missed the whole thing, but it’s still available.
I saw it a bit earlier, and it’s a well-oiled machinery behind this concert. Great musicians, production, and it looked really nice overall. The music was in focus of course, and the new album is amazing. The singles released prior to the album have all been damn fine.
Check out the concert here:
It’s impossible not to be impressed by what these people can do. Now they’ve, as expected, flown a small helicopter on Mars.
So. fucking. cool!
Here’s a really nice recap of the flying itself by Space.com:
I saw the live stream, and it was an amazing experience. The team’s reactions was pure happiness. 😊
Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space, and it’s (just) 60 years ago. It was an amazing feat, and will forever be written down in history books. A space race superhero!
BBC has a nice litt segment about this, with some really cool details. The monument to honor Gagarin looks amazing.
Update: When this is written there are now 4 fissures in total, and they are expecting more.
After my last post the volcano on Iceland has been puouring out lava, and two more fissures opened up. It has become a bit quiet after the last one opened, but it’s still activity, and there’s a chance it will increase activity again I guess.
There’s so much amazing video and photos out there, but this guy in particular got some seriously epic drone videos. I shared a video by hime earlier too. Check out his channel for more:
Ruv.is got a constant live feeds of the volcano, and here you can watch the one with a view from Meradalir:
Right now you can see the three fissuresm in the above live feed, which I shared in my previous post too. The fissure one on the right is the original one, the one on the left is the second, and the middle one is the latest (for now).
Here’s another live cam from Ruv.is. This is the one with a view from Geldingadalir, and it shows the main fissure which looks a bit like a classic volcano now:
As many of you probably know by now, there’s an active volcano on Iceland. It’s not a huge one (atm), which is good in many ways, but also for the fact that we get a lot of sublime photos and videos from there. Some drone footage is out of this world.
I’ve been paying attention to Iceland (and others) for quite some time now. The arthquake activity has been intense with tens of thousands of earthquakes leading up to the eruption itself.
Anyway, I want to share som videos and YouTube channels that are cool – so here they are.
Let’s start with the live video from ruv.is:
Here’s a timelapse from the first 3 days and it shows the more or less steady flow of lava:
This is a news broadcast with interviews and some spectacular footage. Check out the lava fried hotdogs at the end:
Amazing drone videos (check out his YouTube-channel for more videos):
Speaking of live video, here’s one that collects the video feed from several volcanos around the world:
As promised, there would be much more information on Monday, and here are some really cool stuff.
Descent and touchdown:
First 360° Panoramic view of mars from the rover where you can use to mouse to look around:
Here’s a more static video of the same thing:
Even more 360° goodness with more information:
First sounds (wind) from Mars:
Mission experts monday update (note: it’s almost 2 hours long):
A big day, Perseverance Rover is landing on Mars. Just a few minutes now and it’ll enter the Mars atmosphere.
The featured image for this post is Perseverance’s first low-res image taken just seconds after landing.
I have had some issues with WordPress, and it seems it was actually WordPress itself doing something weird. I will start adding stuff again.
New editor is finally in place, so I need to check that out first of all.
