The Japanese may be a bit odd ...

But they do some amazing stuff.

Remember the William Gibson novel Idoru?  The title referred to a computer-generated pop idol named Rei Toei, who would manifest as a hologram.  So much for that concept being mere fiction.  Check these out:

Yes, that is a live band, and a live crowd, with a hologram lead singer.  Incredible.

RIP Dino De Laurentiis

Dino De Laurentiis died today at the age of 91.  The man was a film and TV industry giant, with a truly incredible CV.  Yes, a lot of his stuff was schlock, but he never pretended to be something he wasn't.  He was just a hard-working producer of mass entertainment.

The best movie he produced, in my opinion:  Three Days of the Condor.

Godspeed.
