This Australian guy has a series of videos where he restores old Matchbox cars - I've had many of the models he's restored (a lot of us probably did).  It's intriguing and oddly calming to watch them and he's got a subtle sense of humor.  There's usually some sort of joke or gag in each one; this one has a pretty funny (if not predictable) gag starting around 11:40 or so.

But I did learn that it got more dramatic and broody in the 50s, but the sound got more commercial and Hollywoodish. Then the revolution happened and people weren't allowed out past a certain time. And then rock-n-roll got introduced and Argentinians wanted to dance to that instead.

I'm officially a tango geek now.

I took a weekend intensive workshop on the musicality of Argentine Tango - the elements that make up the song, the tempos, the style, the melodies, the counter-melodies....and how it changed from the 20s to the 30s to the 40s and then 50s before it sort of died for a while. 

I'm quizzing myself with my Argentine Tango pandora station on the decade - and so far, I've gotten them all right! #geek

There is nothing in the pipeline to replace 4k in the foreseeable future.  It's not like 720p, where 1080p was lurking right around the corner.  4k prices are great right now — not likely to go any lower. Buy & enjoy.

 
We'll probably upgrade in the spring. Looks as if we'll be able to buy a 60" 4k for the same money our current 46"/1080 display went for.

Question for the technogeeks: Is 4k worth investing in, or is a new technology going to make it old hat in a few months?

Apparently today is Nerd Christmas, because this photo is getting passed around the Geekosphere with remarkable alacrity. It’s Dirk Benedict and Katee Sackhoff having a cup of coffee in a cafe together. Or, in “Battlestar Galactica” fanboy parlance: Starbuck and Starbuck drinking Starbucks in Starbucks. You’ll notice that Benedict is drinking the original hot coffee, while Sackhoff opted for the newer, sexier iced coffee. I like to think that their entire conversation was “Malkovich? Malkovich. MALKOVICH!”
