Awesome! I really want to get that G0TGv2 cassette as well. I've been tempted since I saw the movie and this might be motivation enough to get it. As for that jack on the bottom, it's an air outlet. I found the PDF manual for your Walkman https://docs.sony.com/release/WMSXF10.PDF

We saw it last night (Monday night). I really liked it a lot. And while I liked the humor, I felt there were a few parts where they could have scaled it back a notch or two (the Willy Wonka part was one, in the lead up to Jeff Goldblum's character). I didn't hate it, and I laughed pretty hard, but it could have been a bit less. Overall, I give it a rating of A- on scale of the Marvel Avenger themed movies.

I look forward to watching them. And as much as I've done in the past, I rarely have used iMovie (both Mac and iPhone versions). Some of the projects that I've done outside of Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro was been in iMovie 09, which I've had to do various updates to get to work on upgrades macOS versions. I've only used the latest iMove on the Mac once or twice for some small projects.

Nathan is super quick and putting together Clayface. Are you still using the LEGO video app on your iPhone for these videos?

This is one of my irritations. There's another blogger who used to post photos like this and called them parking tards. Not the most PC of names, but he found a lot. I think it was Brandon.

Paul would be second from the left, due to the placement of his head in the photo. Visually, he is more prominent than George even thought George might be sitting in a position where he is more left than Paul, sitting wise.

Nathan is a spot on for Balthazar Bratt. My friend was Raphael (TMNT) at a party on Sat night. It was more of a pajama outfit than anything, but he had fun with it.

I think my guess was Cheez-IT. No belly button guesses here, that's for sure. This week... I want to say it's a candy wrapper, but not sure which one. Will have to think more on this one.

When you say all 8, I'm assuming you are including the upcoming "The Last JedI" I never knew that scene was in EP1. Wasn't there a scene in one of the Indiana Jones movies that had C3PO and R2D2 in it? Was this kind of a "scratch my back" thing? Regardless, I see these Easter egg things in many movies, but it all depends on how it detracts from the real story and setting. To be honest, I don't think it detracts too much, so long as it's not too weird or out of place. The E.T. does border on being out of place.

That red lettering had me thinking it was Makers Mark. I'm going with clock hands for this week's guess.

The anger the racist freaks displayed was very evident of their overall message and intention. Night of the Comet.... I don't think I ever saw that movie. Sounds like I need to go out and find it.

Great song choice. I have great memories of hearing Plaster Caster on the FM rock radio when it first came out. For me, that's a hard one to pick a top favorite. I can tell you that I regularly have the song "Cold Gin" in my head and it's one that I've liked since it was first released on their debut album.

I remember those LEGO parts. The precursor to the fidget spinner. I ended up with a fidget spinner from one of the vendors I work with (it's branded with the Hitachi name). My goal is to see if the cats will play with it.

You know that I have mad admiration for your daily blogging. It's something that those of us that have sporadic blogging habits look up to.

That's a great eclipse capture. I like Nathan's costume, even though I haven't seen DM3 yet (but know that Trey Parker does the voice for that character). I like your work MacBook Pro. The "mom said" "dad said" playing means Nathan has reached that age of knowing how to get things.

That is very cool. Sucks Spotify had to go and mess with a great system for playing music.

I love it. And it brings back memories of my first bike. If I find a photo of it, I will post it on a Throwback Thursday.

As did I. And I was just in 3 Europe countries (I looked at the 2 Euro I brought back and it's different the one posted here) This week's guess: one of those gold-colored castles you put in a fish tank.

The last day of a long term job. All the best for the new job. Don't let the term "newbie" get to you. It wears thin after a while.

All the best on your new job. And private sector is not so bad. Although I say that never having worked for a branch of the government.
