Chasing Contentment by Erik Reymond, Free for CAPC Members
In Chasing Contentment, Erik Reymond identifies the lie that satisfaction and contentment come through consumption.
It’s nerd heaven on this week’s episode of the show! First up is Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s wildly popular nerd-service novel, Ready Player One. Spielberg himself is responsible for a lot of geek nostalgia for his own earlier films; can he deliver the goods when making a movie specifically about geek nostalgia? Then the guys turn their attention to another nerd-adjacent blockbuster: Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s hit movie about giant robots protecting Earth’s coastal cities from giant monsters.
Music interlude by Alan Silvestri, “Ready Player One – Main Theme,” from the Ready Player One official soundtrack.
