  3. Disney announced in June 2019 that its Pixar film for next summer is Soul. The studio already had June 19 RSVP’ed on the 2020 calendar for an untitled Pixar movie, and this is it. Soul will be the second original Pixar film next year after Onward, which bows March 6. The tagline for Soul: Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams and your interests come from? What is it that makes you … you?” Directed by two-time Oscar winner Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out), the film takes place between New York City and the cosmic realms. Dana Murray, an Oscar nominee for her animated short film Lou, is producing. Before Disney’s D23 expo, we had only a ghost of a notion of just what was going on with their new animated feature, Soul. The brand new, original feature arriving in theaters on June 19, 2020 was described as tackling “life’s most important questions” on a journey that travels from New York City to the “cosmic realms.” Things have solidified a bit since then. We now know that the movie will follow Joe Gardner, a middle school band teacher and jazz aficionado who gets a big break to play at a high-class jazz club. The problem is, Joe apparently dies before he can get there and finds himself newly arrived in the “You Seminar.” And while that may sound decidedly dark, the core of the story is that Joe’s soul will get an opportunity to commune with a multitude of other souls that are awaiting a chance at consciousness. Thankfully, we have some concept art (and some casting details) to help wrap our heads around that. Joe will be played by Jamie Foxx (Ray) while Tina Fey (30 Rock) voices a spritely soul-in-training named 22 who has an unexpected encounter with Joe when he accidentally finds his way to the “You Seminar.” Together, the two are going to find a way to get Joe back to Earth, making him think again about what it truly means to have soul. But that’s not all! Ahmir Questlove Thompson (Detroit), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), and Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting) also star as a drummer, Joe’s mother, and Joe’s neighbor, respectively. And the musical hits keep on coming because Trent Reznor (The Social Network) and Atticus Ross (The Social Network) are composing the score while Jon Batiste (Red Hook Summer) is writing new music for the movie. Two-time Oscar-winner Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out) directs with co-director/writer Kemp Powers (Star Trek: Discovery), writer Mike Jones, and Oscar-nominee Dana Murray (Lou) producing. This is really shaping up to be something special.
  4. Disney revealed its Thanksgiving feature for 2020: “Raya and the Last Dragon.” The animated adventure film centers around Raya, a warrior in search of the last dragon in the fictional world of Kumandra. The production team pulled inspiration from South East Asia. However, when she finds this creature, it’s not quite as she had expected. Sisu is trapped in human form and needs help to reclaim her power and transform into her true form. Cassie Steele voices Raya while Awkwafina voices Sisu.

    The most fun a game has ever given you?

    Halo 3. I played so much that I lost track. The campaign was amazing, and it was great for split-screening with friends. However, the best part was forge and the custom games. The community was really active at the time and there was a never ending stream of great maps and modes. Halo Reach was good too, but I never got the same experience from it.

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - LED LIGHTS Did you know... that many people think of LEDs as expensive bulbs? What they do not know is it has many features on top of being a thrifty light source. For one, LEDs do less environmental harm than the common incandescent light bulb. According to research, this absence of mercury is one of the reasons why people need to support this product. It is not harmful to humans and it does not have harmful effects on the environment once thrown away. And as a bonus, about 95% of all LEDs are recyclable so nothing goes to waste. LEDs can last anywhere between 12 to 22 years. So can you imagine if you had a baby right now? He will be in high school or college before your LED goes off. In fact, LEDs last up to 25 times longer than the common light bulbs and CFLs. If you install an LED light in your baby’s room now, it will still be there by the time he is a grown up. LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes. These bulbs produce light but not in the same efficiency as a common light bulb. A common light bulb will eat electricity but only converts 10% of that electricity into light. The other 90% is wasted energy. An LED, however, converts 100% of the energy into light. Studies show that if LEDs were used enough, they can save 348 TWH of electrical power in 15 years. Just for some perspective, this amount of power is enough to power 44 large electrical power plants. In terms of money, this cost –savings amounts to a whopping $30 billion. There is this thing called thermal shock. When this happens, your typical light bulb can shatter to pieces without warning. So it is basically like an exploding grenade with shrapnel. An LED bulb cannot be so severely damaged so much as to burst like a light bulb. They do not shatter like CFL. If a CFL or incandescent bulb shatters and you get hit, you need to go to a hospital to get treated not only for physical wounds but for mercury contamination too.

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - PUFFERFISH Did you know... that pufferfish are some of the more recognized species in the sea, known for their ability to inflate into a thorny balloon that all but screams, “Get away!”? When not agitated, these creatures are rather curious about divers, swimming closely with what appears to be a permanent grin, watching your every move. Most of the 120 species of pufferfish are poisonous. These fish are found in tropical freshwater and saltwater habitats across the globe. Unfortunately for anything threatening them, most carry the extremely dangerous tetrodotoxin, which can be over 1,000 times stronger than cyanide. In addition to altering their texture, pufferfish can also change colors. Much like a chameleon, pufferfish can adjust the pigment of their skin depending on the immediate environment. Thanks to their excellent eyesight, they can quickly adjust in response to potential predators if they’d rather blend in than puff up. One of the stranger facts about pufferfish is that they only have four teeth. Their family name, Tetraodontidae, is derived from the Greek words for ‘four’ and ‘tooth’, and the teeth sit at the foremost top and bottom of their mouths. Pufferfish prefer crunchy foods, including coral, shellfish, and other hard substances to keep their teeth trimmed. In Japan, pufferfish are treasured not for their quirky behaviors, but for their flavor. A dish called fugu consists of paper-thin fillets of pufferfish meat, with great care taken to avoid the glands that harbor tetrodotoxin. For this reason, it is a delicacy prepared only by highly trained chefs, who must train for three years before being allowed to serve fugu. Even with these precautions, some have still died from consuming pufferfish, which is said to be part of the thrill in ordering it to begin with. You might think pufferfish move easily in water since they’re fish, but they’re actually very poor swimmers. This is part of the reason scientists believe pufferfish use camouflage and inflation as primary defense mechanisms, as sharks are the only species that are immune to tetrodotoxin.

    So it turns out the sword thief was actually one of the forms that a fox friend that kappa guy knew took on. And if Zoro gives Shusui back to Wano, he'll be given another grade sword that actually hurt Kaido. This'll be interesting.

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - ORIGAMI Did you know... that Yoshizawa Akira is regarded as the grandmaster of origami? Origami, as probably everyone knows, is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. The name origami is derived from the Japanese words 'oru '(to fold) and 'kami '(paper). The name 'origami' was coined in 1880. Before that, the art was called 'orikata' (folded shapes). Origami is equally popular in China and other parts of Asia. Initially, the art of paper folding was restricted only to ceremonial occasions, because paper was scarce and expensive. In ancient times, the designs were transmitted via oral communication. Traditionally, the recreational designs were passed from mother to daughter. As no written material was available, only the simplest designs were popular. The old origami figures mainly included animals, costumed people, and typical ceremonial designs. When paper and origami were first introduced into Japanese culture, certain origami models were incorporated into religious (Shinto) ceremonies. There are hundreds of such interesting origami facts that have left enthusiasts stunned. In Japan, people usually acquire origami skills quite early during childhood. As origami requires 'following precise directions', it has gained a widespread following as a hobby among adults too. The folding process often involves a number of concepts that are relevant to the study of mathematics. It is not only a craft designed for children's amusement, but it is also intended for adults. Many of the origami forms involve complicated steps, and are difficult to make.

    I've recently started playing Rimworld. It's probably one of the most enjoyable games I've played over the past 2 years. If you are into colony management style games (think Dwarf Fortress) then I highly recommend it!

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - CANADA'S ABORIGINAL PEOPLE Did you know... that there are 1,172,790 First Nations, Metis and Inuit people in Canada, collectively called aboriginal, making up to 3.8 percent of Canada’s total population? Between 1996 and 2006, the aboriginal population grew by 45 percent, compared with 8 percent for the non-aboriginal population. There are over 50 aboriginal languages spoken in Canada, of these, only Cree, Inuktitut and Ojibway have a large enough population of fluent speakers to be considered viable to survive in the long term. There are 78,855 fluent speakers of Cree. Ontario has the largest concentration of aboriginal people at 242,495. Six Nations is the largest reserve in Canada, with over 21,000 members. The Iroquois Confederacy, or Six Nations, was originally made up of only five tribes: the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca. The Tuscarora joined later, becoming the sixth nation. First Nations – also known as Natives and Native Canadians – are an Aboriginal group in Canada and one of the country’s original inhabitants. Today, their history lives on through cultural centers, museums, and festivals. Here are nine things you may not know about Canada’s First Nations. In Canada, the term Aboriginal peoples refers to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, which was determined in Section 35 of the Constitution Act of 1983. Each of these groups were the country’s original inhabitants, and they all have very different histories. The First Nations have been in Canada for at least 12,000 years, but it could be for much longer.

  25. I'm unsure if this is a good idea or not. Sure Reeves has 'revived' his career recently but didn't the Matrix franchise cause his career to tank in the first place?
  26. Hi. Well it's my second post but maybe to avoid all spam and necroposting mentioned in greetings it would be better to add this thread to guidelines?
  27. May be interesting. Is there any more info about it? With that kind of ending it would be hard to have continuation with Neo & co.
  28. Im very stock about this, glad the same actor is in this one
