Today on the 5: I'm a little over a third of the way through Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods. So far, it's a good read, if not up to the levels of praise I usually read heaped on the book.

Today on the 5: There's nothing I see as a bigger indictment of the state of our democracy than the constant use of labels as a way to classify people. You see it everywhere, even from people who are otherwise fairly intelligent individuals. Rather than engage in real discussion or objective analysis, we end name calling and grouping people together under convenient umbrellas to prop up our viewpoints.

Today on the 5: I've been playing through the 2010 game Red Dead Redemption recently. As I've been playing I was reminded of an article I read around the time the game was released about killing the animals in the game. I was curious what my reaction to that aspect would be, and whether it's common to have your real world views on animals span over to a game.

Today on the 5: The new animated series Tron: Uprising premiered a few weeks ago, and I've been catching up on the episodes. There was a lot of question around how the series would handle being a prequel to the movie, and having seen it I think there's a lot of potential to add some narrative weight to the events in Legacy.

Today on the 5: The newest version of the MacBook Pro is going to be missing something previous versions had, the Ethernet port. While this is a small thing to remove, I wonder if it's a mistaken direction for Apple to move in.

Today on the 5: Several film sites are reporting that anywhere from 30-40 minutes of footage will be added to Prometheus for the DVD/Blu-Ray release. While I have no need to re-watch the theatrical cut again, I can't say that a longer 'extended cut' won't end up being a much better film.

Today on the 5: My wife and I recently spent some time in San Diego. One of the highlights of the trip was going to the San Diego Safari Park. While I don't like zoos, this was a much different, and ultimately better, experience.

Today on the 5: Apple is clearly backing the retina display in a big way. I wonder what that's going to mean once everyone starts jumping on board. There are some big implications that may come about once people start looking for content to exploit those beautiful pixels.
