The Matrix’ Agent Smith vs. Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan and Agent Smith

I stumbled on an interesting youtube video Christmas day. I had always thought the voice of Agent Smith (played by Hugo Weaving) in the Matrix sounded familiar, now I know why.

One enterprising geek spliced the narration of a documentary by Carl Sagan into a lengthy scene in the Matrix.

I must say, it’s a brilliant job with that video, getting the audio to sync nicely with Agent Smith’s interrogation of Morpheus! But my poor man’s photoshop of Sagan and Agent Smith leaves a lot to be desired, eh? ;)

Britain And Japan Turning Up The Heat On Discussions Of ‘UFO Threat’

UFO Swarm

The UPI is reporting that the British gov’t will release previously classified details on hundreds of UFO sightings. It appears that these will represent the sightings that the Defense Ministry failed to find any rational explanation in their investigation. In other words, those worthy of the X-files.

In other news this past week the Japanese Defense Chief is mulling actions to take in the event of a UFO attack.

Yes, preparedness is a good thing. :)
