I’ve become crazy in love with Carla Azar. Love her voice and her distinctive drumming style.
My boy Brent is a part of Felicia Day’s Geek and Sundry vlog collective. He’s(and by extension as am I) pimping out his Thumbwarrior documentary Kickstarter. Check it out, and here’s a great image from the vid (watch it and you’ll get it.)
Sleek metal architecture, armed guards at regularly interspersed checkpoints, faceless merchants selling every manner of goods that can be sold in a tightly packed stall format. Desolate eyes among those passing through and rows and rows of young people with scant belongings jacked into a worldwide cybernetic network. They sit in clusters on the floor and in corners, surrounded by their packs and bags wherever forgotten electrical outlets still function or have been left unprotected. Their bemused faces are washed over in the pale blue light from their screens. Well, those that still have screens.
Little by little, without even trying, airports are becoming the perfect snapshot of cyberpunk Americana.
I bet you thought I was talking about Shadowrun.
