Emo universe slowly creating less energy, wearing more black holes (Tomorrow Daily 223)
On today's show, Keanu Reeves in VR.
Is there anything better?
Also, astronauts eat space-grown food for the first time, and the universe is dying.
So we got that going for us.
It's Tomorrow Daily!
Greetings citizens of the internet.
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best themed talk show in the universe.
I'm Ashley Esqueda.
That's Khail Anonymous.
We've got a big update as far as this contest that we've set up
That we had on Thursday.
I'm very interested to see who wins this.
Campbell's' crew challenge.
Yeah, it was photo challenge, so I guess that's gonna be, what?
Later in the show?
Yeah, at the end of the show, instead of phonetographer of the day we'll do Campbell's
That's the update.
I even got.
I think I did okay.
I don't think.
I think at least second place.
Did you see our cartoonist friend Dave Abson sent in a, posted a picture to his Facebook page, Campbell's Facebook page.
It was like a [INAUDIBLE] somebody with a band on it.
It was really cool.
It was a great cartoon.
It was really fun, anyway.
I'll think about it.
Okay guys enough of this.
We know we didn't have a show yesterday, so let's hit the headlines.
People who didn't watch Thursday's show are were very upset yesterday.
They were like, where's my show, I can't find it.
We told them on Thursday, listen Nicholas, we already told you on Thursday.
But you know, it doesn't matter.
Because the universe is going to die.
So let's solve it and let's just put on our nihilism hats.
Anyway guys, thanks for joining us on Today's, Tommorow Daily.
The universe is dying.
Don't forget to follow us on Twitter but what does it matter?
Well nothing matters.
So sort of.
The Universe is dying.
Of course it's slowly dying.
Everything's slowly dying.
Everything all around us all the time is slowly dying or decaying.
But I'll explain.
So scientists and people in general will not ever really know what's going to happen in trillions of years cuz we'll all be dead.
But there's this new study that is part of the Galaxy and Mass Assembly survey.
And they have some interesting ideas about what's going to happen to the universe.
So if you're not aware, the universe is always expanding and it's expanding at an accelerating rate, which means all of our galaxies, which you're seeing right here that we're flying though, are getting farther and farther apart over time.
Very slowly, but farther Then burn apart over time.
So, researchers studied the energy output of over 200 thousand galaxies, so this is not a small number.
It's a lot of galaxies that they studied.
And they found that the energy output.
Now, it's about half what it was 2 billion years ago.
Little by little, these galaxies are putting out less and less energy, like and so, at some point, the idea is that they would just not put out anymore.
They would not create anymore energy.
So, In the Big Bang, the idea is that most of the energy in the universe was created in the Big Bang, and then There are also smaller generations of energy when different particles run into each other or stuff in space.
So, we have a little more energy being created, but overall half the amount of energy that these galaxies are making two billion years ago.
They used a huge variety of telescopes here on Earth to help collect data, measure energy output.
And basically these galaxies are making less stars over time and the additional energy that we mentioned earlier is decreasing so this additional energy that's being generated is not as good, it's about half of what it was two billion years ago.
Well that's stupid.
Yeah, it's like a.
You suck universe
So it says it'll take trillions of years but eventually, all of the galaxies in our sky will be so far away we won't be able to see them.
So the sky will be black and then we'll decay and then there'll be black holes and that'll be it.
Where you going?
Come on back, Netflix and chill.
You don't want to go anywhere.
Come on, yeah, we've got Netflix, it's great.
I do love this.
One of the scientists, Driver, his last name's Driver, says, the universe is fated to decline from here on in like an old age that lasts forever.
The universe has basically plunked itself down on the sofa, pulled up a blanket, and is about to nod off for an eternal doze.
Yeah, that's sad.
I like that he makes it sound like the universe had Taco Bell and is falling into a food coma.
It's like, well, I'm done now.
Like hadn't had rest in hot sauce.
Had a gordita, now I'm ready to sleep.
I want to move on to the TD of the day so we can get out of this depressing story.
Well, it's interesting.
It's not so depressing because we won't be here and it won't matter, but TDRIP, and I thought it would be fun if we made up little tombstone things for the universe.
like maybe, you remember the old ones in the 1880's where it was like, you know Slim Jim like had this and then it's like a little poem?
Write a little tombstone at the tab.
For the universe, because res in peace universe.
Someday we're gonna need it so maybe one of you will get the right one?
Mine would be like "Here lies the universe, we deserved it because of the whole Kardashian's thing"
[LAUGH] Sorry about the Kardashian's
No, not even sorry, it's like we deserved it so
Mine would say here lies our universe, we couldn't travel...
Who is very bad, rest in peace, please go away.
Just please go away.
Also don't touch me.
Don't grave rob.
P.S. Don't grave rob.
Speaking of robbing.
Oooh okay, good, good one.
Well if you've seen
If you see John Wick you'll know that's good.
John Wick is fantastic movie and I'll tell you why that's important because John Wick is going to be turned into a virtual reality experience.
If you haven't seen If you haven't seen John Wick, it stars Keanu Reeves and it's basically just an incredible action film.
Where spoiler, someone kills his dog and then he goes on this rampage.
Goes on a killing spree.
killing a bunch of people.
I did the math.
He kills someone every like Like four and a half seconds.
On an average.
But it's a fantastic movie.
It's getting a sequel.
But it's also getting a VR experience.
This is by developer Starbreeze.
I think they did the Walking Dead one as well.
But whether or not this is to promote the second one, we don't know.
But they are working closely with the producers, who are saying they're gonna work closely with them to make the best experience.
This is going to be based on the John Wick universe and revolve around the Continental Hotel featured in the film.
The Continental Hotels got like, yeah, there it is.
And all the assassins lived in the Continental.
Yeah, everything's real fishy in there.
We don't really know what the contents going to be if Keanu Reeves is going to be in it.
But I'd like to think that he would do the voice.
Would be pretty great.
And after everyone kills, he'd be like-
Maybe a cameo.
So there will, this is gonna be coming out in 2016.
Okay next year, got it.
So it's not yet.
There's gonna be a teaser for the game that will be available on the HTC Vive which is coming out this year when it launches as well as the Oculus Rift retail, which will come out in 2016.
So we'll get a preview pretty soon.
But hey, you can look forward to this.
I mean we are seeing a lot of people do like movie VR crossovers.
Yeah, also, I mean first-person shooter video game on a major property, and cross-platform VR.
That's a big deal.
That is a big deal, yeah.
To have somebody saying hey, we're going to make for multiple consoles, like that's.
I like that they are giving people choices.
They are not going to say ooh I have to buy the Vibe because there is a portal game on that.
like this cross platform stuff because then it's like.
That's money, the best way to get money too.
And you're right.
Basing it off an IP is like the great way to start.
It's a good entry point to get people in to it but.
Yeah, very smart.
It's weird they picked John Wick, like I'm super excited, I'm a huge fan of John Wick.
John Wick's Australian so like, okay.
It is a weird choice considering, I don't know.
Considering it was kind of really just sort a bit more indie movie.
It's Lions Gate, right.
Like Lions Gate was the one who kind of developed it.
So it's not a huge, tentpole, summer blockbuster like the Avengers or you know, but still, obviously a sleeper hit.
I think most people weren't expecting it to do the numbers it did.
And so, why not?
It's like excited, but when dogs crook their head when they're a little confused.
But anyway, so yeah, there you go!
Look forward to that.
I like that.
Well lets talk about very quickly before we go to break.
Let's talk about lettuce in space.
This is pretty amazing.
This is a first.
A first for humanity.
We grew some food in space, and astronauts ate it yesterday.
That was a pretty big deal.
It's pretty awesome.
Three astronauts Achieved the Earth's first, or I guess the space first, we can't say that for sure because we don't know what is going on in space.
That looks gross.
So it's like red romaine lettuce.
It's under this pinkish light in this kind of incubator so don't judge it by its color until they actually pull it out.
It looks like normal red lettuce.
These are NASA astronauts.
Scott Kelly, Kjell Lindgren and a Japanese astronaut named Kimiya Yui, first, they got the first taste of space lettuce, which has been growing inside the ISS for about a month.
They planted it, I think Scott Kelly planted it on the 8th of July.
There was another batch that was grown before that but it was flown back down to earth for safety testing.
You gotta make sure you don't have any space disease on the food before you eat it because that would be terrible.
But they snipped off some of the samples, they harvested a little bit of it.
The put some in baggies for testing.
They're going to, I'm sure, bring some back to earth but also keep some up there for testing.
And then they added a little bit of olive oil, a little bit of balsamic vinegar to give it a little bit of flavor, and then they were able to try it.
They ate it.
There they are.
That's a world first.
Space grown food.
We ate a salad in space.
It seems so trivial.
But the cool thing is.
No I get it.
If we need, wanna send a manned mission to Mars, gotta be able to grow food on the ship.
We can't just pack a ship with four years worth of food.
It'll never get off the ground.
We're gonna need so much rocket fuel will be too heavy.
So we have to be able to grow food and be able to sustain ourselves at least food wise in the ship, so this is pretty awesome that they're able to grow food up there and eat it.
You guys are gonna be really thin if all you're eating up there is salad, but you can't really.
By the time we go, I think it's 2030.
Maybe we'll be able to have a 3D printer and they could 3D print meat for them.
Like they have 3D printed cheeseburgers.
That's the only thing they can hope for if they want any kind of protein, because no farm, no 4H club on the spaceship.
Sorry everybody, not going to be raising a piglet.
I don't think he's fit in a space suit.
I mean he could have a custom one made, but it would be weird.
Super awesome, really cool that they grew some food.
Grew some food in space.
And it wasn't all weird and deformed.
It looked like normal food.
Also very Very exciting.
So that's what they're doing and kudos to NASA and the whole team up at the ISS, and I'm glad it was delicious.
I'm glad it didn't taste like garbage.
Do you think they were lying?
Do you think they tasted it and just to make everyone feel good they were like "oh this is so fresh and delicious" but really they were like Like, this is disgusting.
I think that we're happy to have real food.
Instead of astronaut food?
Instead of Tang?
Astronaut ice cream in a packet?
All right, guys.
We're going to take a quick break.
We'll be right back with new releases, but before we go, check out the fisherman who perfectly hooked a drone.
Welcome back to the show.
When are we doing the pictures?
We have to talk about, it's Tuesday, we gotta talk about all the cool stuff that's coming either today or later this week.
It's new releases.
You a big Dr. Dre fan?
I like the new album, yes, is that a trick question.
Not the album.
I wasn't ready for you to ask that question.
So yeah, yeah.
Straight out of Compton.
I forgot about it.
Well, straight out of Compton, you forgot about Dre how dare you.
Anyways so, Oh the movie.
Yeah Straight out of Compton comes out this weekend.
This is a movie on NWA.
A whole new cast though.
They're not playing themselves cuz they're old.
What does the NWA stand for?
Something we can't say on the show.
That's what it stands for.
This movie looks so great.
The first trailer was fantastic.
Again, it's the re-telling of NWA and all their struggles of writing.
The trailers are kind of ridiculous because it's Every one minute in the trailer, someone goes, "Wait you can't do that." And they're like, "We're gonna do it anyway." And someone be like, "Wait, you can't do that!" And they be like, "We're gonna do it anyway." So it looks really good and it's gonna have all the music and they got Ice Cube's cousin.
It's his son.
Yeah, it's his son.
Isn't that crazy?
He's got to play, I think he's gotta play myself.
My son's gonna play me, it's gonna be amazing.
This is a nice little wrap up to the summer movies for sure.
I mean, I've lived in L.A.
my whole life, so.
Yeah, in Compton.
Yeah I grew up in Englewood, it's right next door.
No, but I love 90s West, I love West Coast rap, so the pharmacy on Apple music is like, my jam.
But yeah, no, this is, I'm really excited.
I am not a fan.
Also coming out this week is The Man from U.N.C.
What do you think about this?
I don't give a crap.
You don't care?
I don't care, and the advertisements for it look stupid.
See, the advertisements for this-
Well, it's Guy Ritchie, right?
Yeah, it's Guy Ritchie and then it's Superman and the Lone Ranger are in this movie.
I'm just gonna assume they're playing those characters in this movie, cuz that makes it way more interesting to me.
Like, if I see them as spies who are also Superman and the Lone Ranger, that makes it exciting.
Like, go see it that way.
But yeah, they're What's the guy who plays super man?
Henry Cavill plays the American spy and Army Hammer plays the Russian spy.
They've got to work together.
Take down some nefarious organization of people who are trying to destroy the world.
Yeah, I'm just gonna watch this on DVD or stream it or something.
I like how stylized it is, though, but I kind of like, I like it, it's an interesting story, it's not a superhero movie.
I feel like I'm getting a little superhero fatigue right now.
Oh, you absolutely should.
So this is interesting to me because it's not that.
I'm just like okay, like this is fun and interesting.
It seems like kind of like a stylized flick.
Yeah, but after Kingsman, I'm just like [CROSSTALK] and Mission: Impossible just came out.
We don't need anymore spy stuff.
So sorry Man from UNCLE, you came too early or you came too late.
Fair enough, fair enough.
Okay and then lastly, I'm gonna get on my game hipsterness and tell you that Everybody's Gone to the Rapture comes out on Playstation 4 today.
Which Which is a very interesting little indie game.
It's deliberate sort of mystery where you have to find out what happened to all of the people inside this little British town who disappear very randomly.
So it looks gorgeous.
The music is very contemplative and beautiful.
So you'll appreciate this.
It's been getting kind of so-so reviews because everybody says that You literally walk at that pace.
It is so slow.
Oh, kill me.
But here's the thing.
The developers said we feel really bad because we didn't actually tell anybody, it's in the online manual but we didn't actually say to anybody there's a sprint button, it's R2.
And so everybody is like, oh I guess I got to go back and revisit Maybe redo the review, like if it's a different gameplay experience with the jogging.
What video game reviewers aren't trying all the buttons?
What is this?
I don't know.
I don't know.
This is Babytown Frolics.
Most reviews I've seen have just been like this game is so slow, so deliberate, it's like so, it's great, it's really good, it's interesting, but you move so slowly, like, they really gate you on the pacing of the story, and then but the developer's like [INAUDIBLE] button.
Did you try all the buttons?
I just tried hitting triangle and forward and it didn't work.
It didn't work so I gave up.
All right, whatever.
But yeah, so Everybody's Gone to the Rapture if you're so inclined.
I preordered it.
It's already downloaded on my PS4.
I'm going to play it today.
Is it only on Playstation?
Only on PS4 for now.
Then I don't care about it.
Yep, Cale doesn't care.
All right, guys.
On that note, let's talk about your user feedback.
Are we doing the pictures yet?
It's like sitting with a toddler, an impatient toddler.
He's like picture, picture [SOUND].
But I enjoy it.
You know we asked everybody a million years ago to do TD hypersonic and tell us where they would go for lunch and then come back.
You created the rule and then broke it.
I went for brunch.
I went for brunch in Paris.
Will wrote in
He said, I'd either fly to NY to stuff myself to death with pizza or Italy for anything Italian.
I like that.
Stuff yourself with pizza.
Stuff yourself with pizza.
You'll be stuff [UNKNOWN].
Mitchell Ellero said, Bring back the concord!
Also bring back flight simulator!
What it that?
I don't know what that has to do with anything.
But bring back the concord, okay.
This is gonna be a better concord.
OilTube wrote in and said I would fly to pat and oscars it's a really really really good breadsticks place the best food ever but it's 8 hours away.
So yeah that's a good choice.
It'd probably take you five minutes go rocket power.
Pat and Oscar's.
Yeah Oscar's, they have the best bread sticks.
You're absolutely right.
Good choice, also cheap.
So that's great.
Eight hours away!
You're gonna need to go get cheap food after you pay for that flight, cuz that flight ain't gonna be cheap at all.
Good choice, though.
James emailed this in, I would fly to Japan for sake and sushi.
like how he included alcohol.
Kirk wrote in and said, tweak the engines
He put all the wicked politicians and set a one-way destination to Earth 2.0.
Well here's the thing though, you don't want that.
Because then they start their own race of people on Earth 2.0.
And then in a thousand years they're gonna come at us with weapons.
They're gonna be alien invaders in a 1,000 years.
You don't want that.
He said politics, right?
Like a political planet?
They'd all talk each other to death.
That sounds terrible.
That sounds really Stupid.
Politica, we'll name it politica.
But I almost, like, I'm gonna let that simmer and come up with what that would look like, so.
Good for you, thank you.
Are you ready to do the photo challenge?
What photo challenge?
Time for phonetographer of the day, which is us.
Reset it up for everyone.
So last week we got a letter in the mail, a physical, actual, real, live letter in the mail from Carson, who's a viewer of the show, who introduced us to his brother, Campbell has a few different diseases, some medical issues, and he sent us some really lovely bracelets that say Campbell's Crew.
So Cale, the genius that he is, last Thursday, said we should make Campbell's Crew Challenge.
We should have Campbell's Challenge, where me and Cale and Logan take pictures with our bracelets on and whoever has the best picture wins.
So just to help support Campbell.
Yeah, to drive awareness and also get those bracelets out there.
Right and if you wanna go over to his Facebook, it's facebook.com/Campbell.
So you can.
Oh, it's Kru with a K.
K-R-U, yeah, K-R-U, Kru.
So all right.
Okay, who's image are we starting out with?
I don't know.
Producer Logan, throw up the first image.
Let's see what we got here.
Oh, there's me, it's my image.
Okay, so this is Ashley.
Oh, wait, are we doing voting?
Is that why there's a hashtag?
Yeah, we're gonna do some voting.
Okay, so it's up to you who's gonna win this.
So here's Ashley's, okay.
I don't think you get to explain it too much.
I won't explain it too much but okay, I'll explain in one sentence.
Can we do one sentence.
Yeah, one sentence, yeah.
One sentence explanation is this is the view from our new studio building.
Oh very cool.
And I was doing my thumbs up.
Alright, right on.
How high is that?
Ten stories high, ten stories high.
Alright who do we have next?
Who's the next one?
One sentence, you get one sentence.
That is going to be hard to explain in one sentence.
There is a lot going on there.
This is from a crazy hippy art party.
I really like that mustachioed lady right there.
She is very attractive.
I like the face paint.
[UNKNOWN] Everything that's happening in that picture.
Ok, so to vote for that TDKHAIL, [UNKNOWN] Ashley, TDKHAIL.
Let's see producer Logan's picture.
Yeah, I think that's the black keys, producer Logan who is that in the background?
All right, tell us, one sentence.
The second is the wrist band heard a lot of great music this past weekend.
Perfect wrist band went to outside land.
The wrist band went to outside lands and had a great time.
Okay so to place your votes when are we going to do the vote?
Is it tomorrow?
Let's say by, let's say Thursday.
Let's do Thursday, give them a week, because some people watch the show a couple days later.
So let's give them until the end of the week.
And we'll mention it for the rest of the week.
So we'll count YouTube comments as well as Twitter comments.
You gotta count YouTube.
I'll get them, but TDLogan, TDAshley, TDKale.
You can spell Kale however you want, we'll
As long as you add tags.
And please also tdashley tdkalelogan and also try if you can to @tommorowdaily or me or Kale, then that way it's a little easier to see when you're searching for tdashley.
Because sometimes people have weird hashtags.
Sometimes I found italian tweets about td something and it's just some other name for something.
And I'm like oh, that's my bad.
So yeah, that's the Campbell's Crew challenge.
And you can head over to facebook.com/campbellskru with K-R-U.
You can look that up online.
It'll be real easy.
Yeah, that's why we did it.
So go check it out.
And so that's the phone tire for today cuz we did three.
We promise we'll have something good tomorrow.
I already picked out fisher for tomorrow.
It's amazing, super fun.
That's it for the show.
If you want to email us your phonetograpy, give us your permission to use it, tell us what device you took it with, and also tell us a little story because we like that and we get to tell everybody else your story.
Send it firstname.lastname@example.org.
But really you can find us on social media if you want @tommorowdaily but you can get to know us personally Personally, and that's better.
Very, very, very not mysterious.
And we will be back tomorrow with a brand new docket of weird science fact, science fiction, gaming, geek pop-culture all mashing up together
Together like a giant ball of awesome.
But until then, be good humans.
We'll see you guys next time.
We say goodbye to the show by toasting the future (Tomorrow Daily...
