Blade Runner 2049 delivered on expectations as an extended remix of a classic. Kind of like what Trainspotting 2 did.
Visually and sonically it feels like an apt successor to the original - only bigger, more imposing. I can't remember the last soundtrack I heard with that...
I think there are certainly man-made contributors to the devastation there. Have friends in Houston whose homes were destroyed by the city / Army Corps of Engineers deciding to open certain reservoirs / dams that resulted in flooding of entire neighbourhoods. That was done to avert worse...

That said I got some Sony 7506's on a lark given...
So look's like Suntory's purchase of Jim Beam now means improved distribution in NA - the LCBO has a limited run of Suntory's Hibiki Harmony. Have bought a few bottles as gifts and think it's fine, although reviews seem more polarized than for the rest of the Hibiki lineup.
