I think I'm in love.

And I don't even like guitars.

Don't miss that Ballard book if you're anything even like a fan of his.

Leave it to mefi to line up with what i'm reading, thinking, or curious about 7 times out of 10.

I had dragged out the ol Mondo 2000 'guide to the new edge' a few weeks ago, and while alot of it (especially the bits on virtual reality and cyberspace) have aged worse than a halloween pumpkin in the bahamas, much of the stuff R.U. Sirius wrote holds more than nostalgic value. Glad to see he, and Mondo, live on.

Is there a Cliff's Notes version of this FPP?

Where's Queen Mu? (As a high schooler, Mondo 2000 was, like, the coolest thing EVAH).

Oh, and by the way... Great post.

Oh good lord, be careful. If you invoke her three times, she appears...

Also check out Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything and hell, even the SETI podcast for some way out there counterculture radio.

Ah, Mondo 2000...the most irregularly-published magazine in the Western Hemisphere. Whither now your musings on teledildonics? Halcyon days, indeed.
