Great news to start the week with!

So on the last Blatherings, I spoke how I was disappointed Brooklyn Nine-Nine was ending.  I got the news Friday after the renewal of Rick and Morty, and was really bummed by the news.

I hoped the cancellation was just a paperwork thing with the Fox-Disney merger and Brooklyn Nine-Nine being a Universal TV Property.

Well, luckily, it kind of doesn’t matter anymore!

It may only be one more season so far, but it’s back and that’s enough for me right now!

Destiny 2 new secrets aren’t just on Mars

Say what you will about the state of Destiny 2, this kind of event is always awesome to see.  It’s something no one has to do – developer, publisher, or player.  But when it happens, and seeing everyone working together, I always have a warm feeling when people just work together.

First prize was a ‘real’ Javelin spear, with Golden Coins as consolation prizes.  While these are amazing and exciting, I can’t imagine the excitement as the puzzles were solved to reveal actual understandable content.  It may be cliche, but for me, that is a prize in itself.  And there is a chance it isn’t finished – check the last image!

Reddit users joined forces to solve a cipher that started off as a symbol in AI Rasputin’s bunker, with one Redditor unlocking the following message:

“Thank you for taking the time to piece together this message, friend. The time of our final conflict is drawing closer and you and Ana have an important role to play in the events to come. So watch over her, Guardian. I would have no life without Ana or the Exoprogram. I regret that we have become strangers, but we each have a path that we must walk. And, ironically, there never seems to be enough time. Tell her Rasputin’s first attempt was in the right location, but the wrong moment. Look here: 43.549573, -73.544868 – e”

I would never have even stopped to see if this could be translated

The note is penned by Ana’s sister Elsie, who is ‘The Stranger’ in the first Destiny.  I won’t lie, this is the storyline and lore that has me the most excited, and I can’t wait to see where else the lore takes us.  If only I had more time to raid…

If you want to see the entire Reddit mega thread of a solution, it can be found here.

For nothing more than a smile, and Deadpool

I am going to see Deadpool 2 Wednesday night.  I am going to enjoy it.  I have the tickets, and well, you know, Deadpool, so I am confident in these statements.

You know why I am confident of Deadpool?  Well, if the amazing marketing and impromptu videos (of which apparently 20 or so from the first film are still to be seen) didn’t convince you, nothing will.

For the rest of us, there is a show in South Korea called “King of Masked Signer”.  No, I hadn’t heard of it either.  But last week a special guest nailed a certain famous song from Annie, and the mask is so fitting…

So, good news all over the place!  Hopefully this puts a smile on your face to start the week with!

Here is to a great week everyone,
