Last night I watched the 2nd episode from the 3rd season of another show that really excites and engages me – TNT’s Perception. I wrote about it a year ago as well (in a post that also went almost completely unnoticed) and its longevity has surprised me even more that of Continuum. And yet here I am, writing about it again. Hell, maybe you do have to be crazy to get it, but there’s apparently crazy enough to go around!
The collection of thought-provoking images below have been reblogged from posts on HuffPost Arts & Culture and the Twisted Sifter blog, which, in turn, reblogged them from the massive archive of The What I Be Project.

Breakdown is one of many great songs on the I Robot album by The Alan Parsons Project. For those who don’t know, Isaac Asimov has been a favorite author of mine since my days as a teenager ditching school to sit in the public library all day. His writings have had such a huge impact on my life that, nearly 40 years later, when I was deciding on a name for my online presence, I chose “IzaakMak” partly in acknowledgement of his influence. Which is also why I just couldn’t resist grabbing a copy of this album as soon as it came out!
