Internet – 2021

2021/12/31

Reminder that this is the last day the Internet will look like this. 🙂

Man, I spend my days in the wrong areas of the World Wide Web...

Now do the same with underwear and socks.

The Road to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics…

2020/07/24

…seems to be paved with disaster no matter what reality you’re in.

In the real world, it was postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Akira (1988), it didn’t take place due to the destruction of the Olympic Stadium (and of Neo Tokyo).

“Tokyo Olympics – 147 Days Until the Opening Ceremonies”

In the opening chapter of Dance in the Vampire Bund II: Scarlet Order (2013), a terrorist attack interrupted the opening ceremonies that the vampire queen Mina Tepes was presiding over.

When it comes to explaining the latter discrepancy, I suggested in a social media post from April 18, 2020 that Mina’s special ops force, Beowulf, may have secretly contained the COVID-19 pandemic before it had a chance to spread and tagged series creator, Nozumu Tamaki, in it. Considering that he ended up liking the tweet, I guess that’s as close to official explanation as you’re ever going to get. 🙂

Farming the Oceans, the Moon, and Antarctica

2019/11/15

According to at least one prop replica, Rick Deckard‘s newspaper from Blade Runner (1982), is dated Friday, November 15, 2019. On the downside, we have no offworld colonies. On the upside, we haven’t driven most animal species to extinction yet. So I consider that a win. 🙂

“No fees will be charged for the service.” isn’t nearly as catchy as “Lorem ipsum”.

Surreal Estate – Part 2

2019/01/11

Superman has his Fortress of Solitude. Batman has the Batcave. Wonder Woman has…an old abandoned barn?

Does she at least have an old rusty padlock on the door to the Barn of Paradise?

The tour of these rather modest accommodations were arranged by Sensation Comics #24 (December 1943) by Evelyn Gaines, Frank Harry, William Moulton Marston, Stan Aschmeier, Sheldon Moldoff, Harry G. Peter, Howard Purcell, and Paul Reinman.
