Skywatch Friday : Moon and Sun

More posts here.

This was part of the shots I took previous of our celestial neighbor. I guess that even my not-so high tech camera managed to pull some features and it was kind of cool to get one for my own. :D

The sun's disk

I was taking another test of the sun and somehow, posting here and viewing it separately in a pic viewer didn't come out as expected. The barely there disk of the sun was a little visible in the pic viewer. It was fascinating that a morning shot came out like it was nearing dusk. I thought the electrical post was giving some sentinel vibe.  :D

[Review] Voltron Force 2011 "The New School Defenders" Part 1

Voltron Force 2011

IMDB link

I'm sure if anyone still remembers the 1980s cartoon show Voltron,  but in this new series, eight years have passed since the events transpired from the first show. The gist, King Zarkon was defeated and Lotor was killed. Voltron was hailed triumphant until Sky Marshall Wade, a corrupt, Galaxy Alliance officer made sure the lions went rogue thus decommissioned. This begins the springboard of the first of the three-parter starting with

The New School Defenders 
Written by Todd Garfield
Directed by John Delaney
Story by Todd Garfield and Jeremy Corray
Supervising Director Steven E. Gordon

Flight academy cadets, Daniel and Vince gets a chance meet one of their Voltron heroes, Cmdr. Lance McClain after he singled them out for speaking out of turn in class in wanting to know about Voltron and the members. It was all Daniel spouting about Voltron and Vince was in for the ride for being guilty "by association" as Lance puts it. 

It was  a long standing order by Sky Marshall Wade that any mention of Voltron was grounds for a summary expulsion. When the two cadets finally learn the whole covert nature of Lance, Pidge and Hunk while maintaining to be the epitome of great soldiers, Vince and Daniel were immediately tasked to switch the keys found on Wade's uniform. Soon, half the mission was underway and Keith broke Black Lion out from Wade's military complex.

Me? What did I do? [Vince]
Guilt by association. [Lance]
When I first show the episode, I was quite excited and was really glad the premise of the show was set eight years after the events where the 1980's show left off. I really wasn't looking forward for a re-make.
