I don't know...

2012 is getting to be so...Science-fictional a date!   :o :o


And in five years hence??


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L.A._2017

L.A. 2017
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
"L.A. 2017", written by Philip Wylie and directed by Steven Spielberg, is a 1971 episode of the television series The Name of the Game. Sometimes referred to as "Los Angeles: AD 2017" (the name of Wylie's subsequent novel based on his script) or "Los Angeles 2017", this was a science fiction piece, shot for only $375,000, about a publisher, Glenn Howard (Gene Barry), who finds himself suddenly plunged 46 years into the future only to learn that the people of Los Angeles are living underground to escape the pollution and under the thumb of a fascist government run by psychiatrists. The 24-year-old Spielberg used imaginative camera angles to drive his first movie-length television episode across and remarked in later years that the show "opened a lot of doors for me."
 
At the end, Howard wakes up to discover it was all a dream—although there is a chilling final image of dead birds that hint at a troubled future ahead. Presenting the story as a dream was the only way that Wylie's science fiction tale could be fitted into the peculiar format of The Name of the Game,  a show about the magazine business set in the present and rotating between Gene Barry, Tony Franciosa, and Robert Stack (and in the third season also Peter Falk, Robert Wagner, and Robert Culp).
 
This was the sixteenth episode of the third season, and the cast included Barry Sullivan, Edmond O'Brien, and (in a brief cameo) Spielberg's friend Joan Crawford. The episode is 76 minutes long (90 minutes including commercials).
 


Look at the old "rock band" in the
future--that's me only it's now,
the present--scary!!

My grandma would have been 100 years old on November 28, 2011.

I miss her, though we "lost" her to Alzheimer's some time before her body died.

Happy New Year!

I hope 2018 brings happiness, fulfillment and love into your life. Or, if you’re already happy, fulfilled and loved, make sure to continue that pattern.
