Maximizing the Connection, Profit

” With enough time and enough money, you could spend the rest of your life following the Summer around the world. " -- Narrator, “The Endless Summer,” Bruce Brown Films, 1965

Okay, Top Gun was good, so was Avatar … as were a number of other big screen events.

Some even got mentioned at the Oscars, but that doesn’t impress us much!

No, we psyched ourselves up and prepped for the return to the theater of John Wick: Chapter 4.  

We’re not a “must see it on the giant screen with a few dozen strangers” guy but good gawd, it’s John Wick and there has to be some payback to Winston for shooting him.  

Besides, he gets a new puppy!

Rewatched the first three chapters a couple of times just to get our mind back in the groove.

We already know it will pack theaters everywhere it is shown, despite the jacked-up ticket prices, tiered seating pricing and ridiculous concession/food pricing.

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment (distributors), Reeves and the production crew have done a killer job of telling you what to expect - how it was done - without really telling you.  

Knowing everything and nothing is great film marketing.  It feeds the flames of peoples’ “need” to see a film or show.

When the film is released by Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, it will suck new subscribers into the services.

Then … into the pirate realm


Why Worry about Technology Doing Us In ... We'll Do It Ourselves

“You're saying nobody's supposed to eat this food three times a day. No wonder all this stuff happened to you. But the scary part is: there are people who eat this food regularly. Some people even eat it every day.” – Morgan Spurlock, “Super Size Me,” Con, 2004

I like doing things for my family … my friends … myself.

Don’t really like “things” doing stuff for me.

Don’t get me wrong; I like technology. But will it really help or just be “damn that would be cool?”

The Metaverse Emerges Slowly at CES 06-Feb-23

 “The thing about perfection is that it's unknowable. It's impossible, but it's also right in front of us all the time.” – Kevin Flynn, Tron: Legacy, Disney, 2010


Covering the Metaverse at this year’s CES is difficult.

The Metaverse is really like a giant iceberg.

The stuff you see on the show floor – headgear, glasses, apparel, toy guns – is the 10 percent folks see, smell, feel, talk about, brag about at the show.


But the truth is ninety percent of the Metaverse is totally out of the view of the consumer – below the waterline.
