While picking up a copy of the Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency comic I noticed this absolutely fantastic poster for an upcoming DC comic featuring characters from Hanna Barbera. I’m excited to see what they do with this. [Pictured Here: The Herculoids, The Impossibles, Frankenstien Jr, Birdman, Space Ghost (and company), The Galaxy Trio, Johny Quest, and the Mighty Mightor]
The Jetson’s promised us flying cars. Henry Ford was convinced we’d see them in his lifetime. Where are they? Well, they’re here. They’ve been here since the 40s. They’re not even spectacularly dangerous or unreliable. Ready to learn more? (You know you are.)
Two months ago, I became obssessed with the Japanese exclusive Gameboy Lite. I set off on a quest to find one, but what I did instead is a little less conventional. If you’re interested, you can get a Gameboy light from Amazon for about $100. The gameboy light is a neat little piece of hardware, released just before the launch of the gameboy color. It’s about the size of a gameboy pocket (that is, about 4/5 the size of the gameboy color) and features an indiglow/backlit screen. It’s probably the coolest gameboy ever officially released.
I have been working on a couple of really interesting, but fairly incomplete projects for the past few weeks. Nothing is at a point where I can sing its praises publically. As a result, I haven’t been writing much, beyond my own personal notes and journaling. I want to change that. Here are a number of ideas that I could turn in to novels or short stories.
There is this idea that, in the near future all the bits and bobs we own will be connected to the internet at some capcity. They’ll all share data back and forth, and everything will be great and no one will get spied on.
