"Star Wars: Episode II" at 15



Article: 15 Things I Like About Star Wars: Attack of the Clones - DorkSideOfTheForce

Trailer: Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi - StarWars.com



"Star Wars: Episode II" is perhaps the most vilified "Star Wars" film of all time! Regardless, it celebrated its 15th Anniversary yesterday. So, it's time to look back on it.

Even if others hate it, I like it! And, I would much rather watch "Episode II" again than "Force Awakens."

2015's "Episode VII" was basically a rehash of the original "Star Wars." But, "Episode II" had George Lucas behind it, and while the dialogue was troubled, and the acting too stiff, I still think the movie has tons of great stuff! The epic light-saber duel between Anakin, Darth and Yoda. The arena battle, the crazy monsters, all of it! To me, easily better, and much more watchable than Abrams' warmed-over recent installment.

"Star Trek: Discovery" New Trailer



Article: 'Star Trek: Discovery' Official Trailer Unveiled - The Hollywood Reporter

Video: Star Trek: Discovery First Look Trailer - CBS



Just out is the "First Look Trailer" for "Star Trek: Discovery." Since this show will be behind CBS' pay wall (CBS All Access), predictably, the trailer premiered only on CBS, and you needed to run Adobe Flash for it.

This evening, StarTrek.com did get it on YouTube, which is good.

"Star Trek: Discovery" will premiere its first episode on CBS broadcast, then move to CBS All Access at an undisclosed future date.

Raspberry Pi Initial Wiring



This details the initial wiring of my Raspberry Pi's GPIO Pins to my breadboard:

I started by using an Adafruit T-Cobbler. This board extends the pins of your GPIO to your breadboard. Once you have plugged the T-Cobbler into your breadboard, you need to establish power to the Bus Strips of your breadboard.

I have wired the 3V3 (3.3 Volt) pin to the corresponding Bus Strip's negative hole using an orange wire, the GND (Ground) pin to the corresponding Bus Strip's positive hole using a black wire, the 5.0V (5.0 Volt) pin to the corresponding Bus Strip's negative hole using a red wire, and the GND (Ground) pin to the corresponding Bus Strip's positive hole using a black wire.

Using these color wires follows electrical conventions. I used these 8-inch wires for now because that's all I had available! :-)

Tribeca Film Festival - Best Films



Article: Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Buzziest Titles From Jenny Slate to Jeffrey Dahmer - Variety

Festival Page: Tribeca Film Festival 2017 - TribecaFilm.com

Variety states, "Tribeca has become the Duane Reade of film festivals." For those who live in New York City, or visit there often, that's pretty funny! For those unfamiliar with the NYC drug store chain, maybe not as much!

But, Variety has a good list of nine films to watch out for at this year's festival.

Tribeca Film Festival starts today and runs April 19-30, 2017
