I bet that one day we'll want to get a desktop super computer. I know that we'll figure out how to bring it to its knees within a week, but before that week we'll have lots of fun with it.
Right now our dual quad-core Mac is holding up nicely (knock on wood). It takes a while to render out the smooth-cam in Final Cut Pro, but it handles 720p HD footage fairly well and will even apply an effect or two before it needs to pre-render for playback.
I still have to use Samplitude version 8 rather than the latest version (10) to edit dialog and effects. Bleh.
I am sometimes accused of not having enough nudity on this blog. I am never accused of not having enough bunnies.
Upcoming sci-fi films list:
The Book of Eli with Denzel Washington (2010) Post-apocalyptic Western. Dude must rescue a book or some such thing.
Battle: Los Angeles (2010) Marine commander vs. aliens
The Days Before "aliens invading Earth by traveling backwards through time and wiping out humanity - yesterday by yesterday - while one man stays a yesterday ahead of them, trying to convince the world that the end is coming again."
Bioshock. Directed by Gore Verbinski. More gore, less verbinski.
