    • He opened with Gandalf - with the section with the Balrog "Fly, you fools!". Then he hauled Glamdring out of a massive box on the stage - and the pointy hat - he was given both at the end of the shooting. He then got a young person from the audience up on stage to draw the sword, and signed a program for her. No Magneto though.... He did make a comment about Dumbledore though. Apparently Michael Gambon (who played Dumbledore) was frequently mistaken for McKellen, and asked for an autograph - so he didn't disappoint the fan and signed it "Ian McKellen". We're lucky enough to have seen him on stage quite a few times, most recently (2017) in King Lear in the 250 seat Minerva theatre in Chichester. Also Richard III in Bradford (1991), Waiting for Godot (in London with Patrick Stewart, 2009), No Man's Land (in London with Patrick Stewart, 2016), and a Godfather type of play translated from the Spanish called The Syndicate, again in the tiny Chichester Minerva (2011). He flew back from New Zealand during a break in shooting Gandalf in The Hobbit to do that. We've also seen Stewart, again in the tiny Chichester Minerva. The best Macbeth (2007) I've ever seen by a mile, that then went to the West End, then to Broadway, and then was made into a movie. And a not so good Twelfth Night as Malvolio (2007). In fairness he was miscast as Malvolio. And in a rather weird play called Bingo that Stewart is obsessed with (2012), about the late life, and death of Shakespeare, and the family squabbles around his death bed about the will. This is an outtake from the superb Macbeth movie. Follows the stage play perfectly, including the goods lift you can see in the background that Banquo's ghost uses to arrive. Get the DVD. If you like Shakespeare you won't be disappointed.  
    • I didn’t realize he wrote that! Unrelated: best episode ever!  
    • https://lwlies.com/articles/david-lynch-tv-commercials/ The commercials of David Lynch. Even the wholesome pasta one feels disturbing. 
    • built a tap of sorts to see what my STX build draws just to make sure the transformer I have is adequately sized.  The max it pulled was 2.1 amps at 19Vdc durring a CPU stress test.  Salas says make sure you have 2x the capacity. Pars built the Dynalo Mini in the picture  
    • I'll drop Tidal in the next few weeks.  Amazon Music HD for 12.99/mo for prime members is hard to beat.  No difference in quality that I can hear so far
