Today is May 1st, labor day in many countries around the world. Difficult to talk on this day when many workers risk their work due to the crisis for the Coronavirus. I will just hope that every state takes the right steps to deal with the epidemic.

 

Goodbye April

This could often have been very long for many people, forced not only to suffer the bad weather of the season but also to stay home because of the coronavirus. Finally May begins, which I consider the true month of spring and perhaps a few times even in early summer. But in this month in many countries there is also the (partial) end of the lockdown and some activities can be resumed, such as that of simply walking through the streets of the city, respecting the safety distances.

Readers’ wildlife photos — Why Evolution Is True

Evolutionary ecologist Bruce Lyon is back, and during the pandemic he’s managed to get some great hummingbird photos, along with a good dollop of natural history for your edification. The IDs and captions are his. Here in Santa Cruz County, California, we were under pretty strict shelter-in-place requirements a couple of weeks ago. All beaches […] […]

A musical track waiting for TOPGUN Maverick (2) in december 2020

 

While waiting for the film to come out, I will place this instrumental track that resurfaces the mythical topgun with Tom Cruise

Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled to be released on December 23, 2020, by Paramount Pictures. It was originally scheduled to be released on July 12, 2019, but was moved back a year in August 2018.

The autobiography of Val Kilmer, a book entitled “I’m your Huckleberry” was published in the United States in early April. It contains a series of interesting ideas and anecdotes. The actor, who turned 60 on December 31 and who recently had a difficult life due to throat cancer, talks about colleagues and films made, and among these there could not be Top Gun. But it doesn’t end there. Kilmer also tells about his participation in the sequel Top Gun: Maverick, where we will see him reprise the role of the fighter pilot Iceman.

In the autobiography Val Kilmer starts from the first film and talks about his initial skepticism towards the project: “I didn’t want the part” – he writes. “I didn’t care about the movie. I wasn’t interested in the story.” Then he goes on to tell of his audition: “I presented myself with the air of an idiot. I was wearing a pair of ridiculous oversize Australian shorts in vomit green. I read the lines as if I didn’t care. And yet, incredibly, they told me that I got the role, which made me feel disheartened rather than gassed. “
