The Incomparable

The Incomparable #431: Overture and Apes

Pick up a femur, order a moon sandwich, and always remember to bring your space helmet with you! On its 50th anniversary, Jason is joined by John Gruber, John Siracusa, Dr. Drang, Moises Chiullan, and Philip Michaels to discuss Stanley Kubrick’s classic “2001: A Space Odyssey.” What is the Monolith’s purpose? When and why does HAL become murderous? And why is there so much solarized stock footage of landscapes? Watch out for cheetahs!
