Everything You Need to Know About Elon Musk

Talk about superheroes making the likes of the Man of Steel blush and Mr. Tony Stark mad with jealousy along with his Avengers buddies. The auto industry really is an empire filled with superpowers and dare-to-dream initiatives ripe for the taking like Lexus’s hoverboard and the advent of 3D printing a real-life automobile (we’re not kidding). At the forefront of this automotive advancement and technology — which already exists in ways we can’t even comprehend, really — is just one man. One man who may arguably sit at the top of a very important list of influences in the auto industry. His name is….

Elon Musk: Our Very Own “Iron Man” of the Automotive IndustryElon Musk

He’s actually been called that before, believe it or not. This is a man not only pioneering the very possible idea of colonizing Mars with SpaceX and even proposing a concept called Hyperloop (a high-speed transportation system you’d have to see to believe, and even then you might not believe it along with the likes of Uber’s Travis Kalanick)…. But potentially revolutionizing the auto selection market with Tesla Motors, a major player in the green manufacturing regime of electric vehicles.

We don’t have to be in the know when it comes to electric cars. We’re seeing them already. Gasoline-powered automobiles may be going the way of the Dodo, and that’s fine. But when you’ve got a man like Elon Musk delivering the very first electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster, and a slew of other revolutionary prototypes paving the way to a new auto industry, plus remarkable electric powertrain systems sold to Daimler, Mercedes, and Toyota, it’s pretty clear — this is the man, Elon Musk, ushering in the new era of automotive manufacturing and transportation in a big way. No question.

He Also Is a Co-Owner of PayPal

You know, that online payment service. Yep, that’s Elon Musk for you. Can you imagine Iron Man managing payment accounts with a smartphone (a smartphone that can also drive, perhaps)? The future’s coming, and Elon Musk leads the way.

Letting the Force Flow Through the New Star Wars Trailer

Any droid, Jedi, clone, Sith Lord, rebel soldier or stormtrooper would cheer at the call of the “first transport is away,” faithfuls hopping into their Snowspeeders to tackle them some hefty AT-ATs with harpoons as another metaphorical Death Star looms in the distance about to cream the latest Avengers and “Superman V Batman” set trailers with a passion — and it’s all because of this new Star Wars trailer just released by Mr. J.J. Abrams, whetting our appetites for more galaxies far, far away, investing in some John Williams to bleed into our souls the way the dark side could only do so.

Why the New Star Wars Trailer Increases Your Midichlorian Count

 

I have to say this: I was a little kid again. All of it came back for me in ways I can’t even describe.

When the new trilogy came out with a boyish Vader, Liam Neeson, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a weird talking Gungan, I was hyped up on this cosmic sugar, and that’s all well and good. This, though, took satisfaction to a whole new level. No toothaches, no candy coma — just a full belly, and perhaps a good beer to go with it. That’s what this trailer brought for me with the philosophy of Skywalker.

And here’s the best part: this new Star Wars trailer wasn’t even the official trailer! That means there most likely will be more to come!

If you notice, in this new Star Wars trailer “teaser,” we really don’t get to see anything as far as a plot at all, nothing to get us asking questions about “what’s going to happen,” gauging us and luring us like meat to Chewbacca on the forest moon of Endor. That’s what trailers typically do.

This, however, is not a trailer, per se. It’s a teaser. But for all intents and purposes, it’s a damn wicked teaser evoking those hairs standing on end and an X-wing flying up your nose with blasters blazing. Just from those few images, I can say this….

Based on the New Star Wars Trailer, This Won’t Disappoint at All

The same timeless quality. The gritty realism. What made Star Wars so eternal, but just with that flair Abrams is so well known for, kicking up the high-octane space opera action to the “nth” degree a million times over, without super-cheesing the CGI to death (although I don’t dislike breathtaking visuals at all)….

This will bring us all back to our roots. To our beginnings. And ironically enough, this new trilogy we’re going to see is not a ‘beginning’ of the entire mythos, but a continuation. And, yet, it’s the beginning of a new saga. The combination is divine. And we’re all in for a treat. It’s like Han Solo says — “Chewie…. We’re home.”
