Mr. Chair Man

“”I am”… I said
To no one there
And no one heard at all
Not even the chair”

– Neil Diamond, “I Am… I Said”

Mr. Horrible is upset that someone keeps taking his chair. Someone who isn’t even there –

Happy New Year!

2020. Wow! It’s really here.

Back in 1980, Superman comics depicted the future world of 2020…

Superman 2020 comic

So no, we are not living in floating cities with flying cars and controlled weather. Much less having a superhero around.

That’s the downside. On the upside, we’re not living in this either…

…yet.

Ya know, if DC Comics had any smarts at all, they would be selling a Superman 2020 collection right now, maybe with a new story or two included. Not just to coincide with the arrival of the year 2020, but the concept was perfectly suited to our Current Year in its wokeness.

See for yourself…

It’s got nazis! And a sop to concerns about overpopulation as well.

The nazis even have their own cool salute…

…and predicted the soyboy epidemic.

And best of all…

…even though these “Purists” are totally racist, they’re also not racist at all. Now that’s a hell of a trick.

Seriously, DC could make sales from a high-concept series and score virtue-signaling points all at once. They accidentally stumbled across a form of wokeness that might actually make a profit.

Then again, they might get in trouble for this…

Even in the imaginary future, some things never change.

Happy New Year!

 

2019

2019 has been….. quite a year. To close out quite a decade!

Only Class At This Joint

 

And that is how you maintain civilizational standards.

1/9/19

Double 19 requires two “19” songs.

That song was all over MTV in the mid-80’s. I believe it got a fair amount of radio play as well.

Interesting story behind the making of the song –

You probably knew this one was coming. Another big radio hit –

Happy New Year

I can’t believe it’s 2019 already. Where did so much of the future go?

Have a great year!

2018

End of another year. Hope everyone has a terrific New Year!

Added more songs to the list, including a new Steely Dan performance from this year.

 

 

Is It NYE Already?

The future is very soon indeed.

Will the New Year bring self-aware Ratlicants? As if the original isn’t bad enough…

 

Goat must have a rosy view of the future with those beer-colored glasses.

$2400 + 420 = LAZERS!

If there is a God and he is indeed omniscient, it is also true that he foresaw the human race’s ability to create a great many things that would change the world, improve the overall quality of life here on Earth, and maybe even one day move beyond it. I can’t help but wonder what the hell he would make of this $2,400 laser bong.

More Power, More High!

The B-LAZE Laserbong, made by Silicon Cali, uses a 2W, 445Nm frequency laser. And you have to wear protective eyewear.

Protective eyewear. To smoke weed. Seriously.

The company founder, Justin Zelaya, described potential customers as ranging from “Bitcoin core developer” to “mad scientist, like myself.” Yeah, I can see that.

I really, truly, honestly do not know whether this is better or worse than this other use of lasers.

Perhaps an enterprising snack company can appeal to the secondary market among cyberpunk laserstoners with products displaying the integration of corn chips and high technology. Frito-Layzer, if you will.
