The actor that played Godzilla in the first 12 of his movies has died at the age of 88.
Haruo Nakajima played the world's favorite amphibian with anger issues in the monster's first dozen film outings. It was Nakajima's fourth film. He had previously had a small role in Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.
In preparation, he went to a zoo to study lizards. They didn't do much, so he based Godzilla's movements on elephants & bears. The original Godzilla suit weighed about 220 pounds.
Nakajima recounted that he got the attention of Godzilla director Ishiro Honda on the set of a WWII film. "There was a scene where an airplane was on fire and an actor had to jump out of it. That was my role," he said. "Mr. Honda saw this scene and thought, 'This guy is full of energy.' They came to see me as someone who had guts, and I think that's why they wanted me for the role of Godzilla."

A town near where I live has conducted an experiment using Uber as public transit. It doesn't make sense for a town of 35,000 to buy buses, yet not everyone can own a car or pay taxi rates either. City hall subsidizes Uber, so it costs $5 to get to common destinations. The costs to the tax payer is about a third of what the cost of a bus system would be.
Damnit, I'm used to hating Uber https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2017/08/04/ubers-search-for-a-female-ceo-has-been-narrowed-down-to-3-men/, but this can solve some very real problems!

This has been popping up on the internet over the last few days. For those who don't know Democrat US Senator Al Franken, he is one of the harshest critics of Trump's administration and probably responsible for the Special Investigation into Russian interference in the last election.
Formerly he was a writer/performer on Saturday Night Live and during that time had this remarkable act where he absolutely nailed Mick Jagger in a comedy sketch/impression. Makes it hard to watch him in a news report without bringing a smirk to your face.

Good news for our many Fisichella fans. Fisi will return to the IMSA WeatherTech Championship starting with the nest race. Giuseppe Risi announced that his team, Risi Competizione, will return starting with the 27 August round at Virginia International Raceway.
The Ferrari backed team sat out the last four rounds. They had suffered major shunt in each of the three races prior to that. It has taken them this long to recover from that streak.
"We will back at Virginia International Raceway with our No. 62 Risi Competizione 488 Ferrari with Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander," Risi said in a press release. "We have taken a hiatus since the 24 Hours of Le Mans but now plan to complete the season at VIR, Laguna Seca and the season finale at Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta."
The races may be live streamed world wide at https://www.imsa.com/
