My researches into the dark side of the Cube are taking their toll on my soul. I used to be a good person, but looking over the last posting it seems I have made fun of religion in the very first paragraph, not to mention sending that old couple from the future to the Video Mines of Central Ohio, there to dig for old Betamax format cassettes (which, it turns out, can be melted down to form a sort of hallucinogenic lotion that bestows cinematic visions on the user).
On the plus side, the heightened mental powers I've gained from spending hours unlocking Rubic's mysteries have given me new insight into an oddly named skateboard movie from 1989, Gleaming the Cube.
Slater stand-in busts a one-wheeler
I remember there was quite a bit of speculation when the film came out as to the meaning of the title--it seemed to bear no relation to the plot of the movie whatsoever. I now know that Christian Slater's character gains his seemingly miraculous skateboarding abilities through clandestine manipulations of the Rubic's Cube.
