NO!

I want to fly on the Pan-Am Space Clipper to the wheel shaped space station where I can make a video-phone call before I catch the shuttle to the Moon-base!

Still.  My Dad did point something out to me a while back.

Y'know how in lots of old-school science fiction flicks or TV shows, there'd be the Holy MacGuffin of plot devices... Data Chips.  A tiny, easy-to-lose handful of plasticy metal thingies that held the secrets that could save the entire country / world / galaxy / universe / multiverse.  The heroes would spend the entire movie chasing these things down because of the precious data held on them, and the secrets they'd reveal, and how important it all was.  And then they'd finally get them, and plug them into something, and this gigantic screen would show the recording of the precious Data and it would have such a big important influence on the plot.  Remember that?

USB thumb drive and widescreen projector.

Not only does this fancy technology exist, it's so common that we find it mundane.  I'm sorry, but that officially makes it the future.

Yeah, but that was just an acknowledgement of where the tech was already going.  The plot's just a rehash of a "book of secrets" plotline, where there's something in this one copy of an old book that's hidden away, or lost, or maybe it's the one person with the knowledge that needs to be rescued or found...

I'm NOT going to TVtropes this, but I know it's in there, somewhere.  I've got grading to do. 

I know we live in the future of our pasts, but I really wish it had that "gee whiz" sheen to it, ya know?

I dunno. In the early nineties, when Hayes, one of the really big modem companies, damn near went belly up (I can't remember why), I asked a cutting edge networking guy why we didn't have wireless communications yet. He told me it was impossible, and then proceeded to list all the reasons why it would never be feasible.

You can now buy a web-browsing hand-held computer that you can carry, if not anywhere, than a rather lot of places and pull massive amounts of data onto the teeny screen (by the standards of the early 90's, when a comp-sci major told me that if I wanted unlimited storage for  a PC my department was ordering, I needed a one Gigabyte drive [I think, may have been four], because I'd never fill that sucker up) without really thinking about it and with nary a wire in sight. You don't have to be Lt. Uhura or Spock, either; it's so easy absolute morons can do it.

If that's not gee-whiz enough for you, Carl, you've got higher standards than we'll probably ever live up to. If that's the case, I think you, to satisfy your lust for novelty, may need to be the one who volunteers to get teleported the first time.

The real problem with flying cars is that very few people seriously want them. If they did, we'd have them. Ditto for space exploration. But we love to yak mindlessly, lookit each other's images, and let one another know the instant we get married, get drunk, fall down, or fart, depending on our priorities. Thus, behold the smart cell-phone.

And with farts, I think I've almost got us back to the thread topic (only fair, since I derailed it quoting "The Electro Gypsy"). How many farts can the QC movie have and remain semi-tasteful, and how many can it not have and still be QC?

One of the James Bond movies has the doomsday missiles' launch codes on a CASSETTE TAPE! which (Blofeld?) runs around with on an open-sea oil platform, I kept imagining the tape falling into the ocean or being roasted by the explosions or just getting dirt in it...

Very amusing.   :lol:

2.)  The real problem with flying cars is that very few people seriously want them. If they did, we'd have them.

1.  I wanted to write a book full of those way off-base quotes by industry leaders, trend-predictors, etc, but I think it's been done... I forget the title, though.

2.  I want one! Really!  But I don't matter, I don't have $100,000 or whatever it would cost.  
And I think there's probly other issues, like all the morons who'd crash em (drunk fliers!!) buzz their friends, etc etc.  You think road accidents & traffic jams are destructive, disruptive??  Wait til millions of dolts are late for work (rush hour would have new worlds of pain) or cutting each other off, trying to get into (or out of) sports stadia, ... boggling.

Yes. When I think about it with any degree of seriousness, I imagine that someone, somewhere, had an epiphany for a $10k flying car, then tried to drive into a medium-size city at 8 or so in the morning to do some legal work, translated what he saw into the hurtling horror his invention would make it, then turned around to go home and burn the plans as fast as he could.

As is, the idea they let John Travolta fly a jet is enough to terrify me in and of itself. Getting the crazy old bat elderly lady down the road from me up there, too, is the stuff of nightmares.

Then where's my damned jet pack, already?  

In the GTA game San Andreas!   :-D  Seriously, after you get to the 3rd city (Las Vegas) there's a mission where your reward is your very own jet pack, and it's just about as cool as you'd think - put it on in the game, and you rise up and fly around the already cool SA sandbox-world.   :joy:

I was disappointed by not being able to carry my favorite heavy weapons up with me, to deal with those damned annoying police helicopters, but I bow to realism - the heaviest it lets you use up there are pistols.

I get your point, Carl -(see below)- I grew up on a farm in the middle of the last century - our water pipes froze in winter, we had like the last rotary phones in the US that you picked up and told a live operator the number you were calling, traveling salesman came around with things local stores didn't have, and when I went to college for computers, we had some old UNIVAC stuff with punched cards...   So when I wax effusive about flying my own GTA jet pack around, I'm seriously enthralled by the great tech advances.   :-D

And it's one of my favorite speculations - what people of one era would think of a future era's STUFF...    [The 1938 World's Fair made a film, "The World Of 1960" (I think was the title), and it's weirdly fascinating, public dirigible transportation, grooved highways, & more!]

[sigh]

My point was again, missed.  Don't worry, I'm used to it...

It's the sheen that's not there.  All the new whizbang tech we have is cool, and amazing.  but it all developed naturally, nearly evolving before our eyes.  Those old "vision of the future" things were leaps and bounds past what we could do - dreamer's stuff.  What we have now is at that level, but taken completely for granted, because we wathced it evolve.  There's been no "quantum" leap forward! 

My first computer work was done with punchcards.  I used teletype terminals (with the 2 foot wide punch paper), and my thesis was written using a VT100 and a 1200 baud modem to hook up to the mainframe.  My first computer at work had a 10 MB hard drive, the biggest you could get.  I don't even want to talk about my first laptop...

Yes, iPads and smartphones are amazing.  But there are touchscreens everywhere, they're already mundane. 

I dunno, it's just the GOM in me, I guess!

I think I don't get you because the sheen is there for me. Example: I just started using Skype today, and it's astounding I can do that, and on a 5 year old machine, too. I'll add 'naturally' is a bit of a stretch, to me. 'Natural' development, my studies tell me, is 'ARGGGHH! It's different! Break it, burn him. Stick to the old, holy ways." A few people don't do this, however, and the thing passes around in secret for a few decades to a few centuries, and then it is quietly accepted because the people who have the matches are using it by then. But every once in a while you get these times where nearly every advance is accepted. We're living in one at the moment (although it may soon pass.)

I think the "Sheen" isn't as obvious because, well, at the risk of being slapped for saying so... the "Sheen" has become a market issue.  Everything is being sold as The Wave Of The Furute.  Every single Apple product is given a furutistic name with the i- suffix, and made of smooth white or black casing with touchscreens.  Everything is wireless.  Everything is supposed to be so neat and futuristic that nothing stands out.  If it's all got a sheen, then after a while you... just stop noticing it's there.

And as far as looking for that "Quantum Leap Forward", well, I think that's just part of the sheen effect you're looking for.  Everything claims to be revolutionary new technology, but realistically, that almost never works.  I think the best example is the SmartCard (to give it one of the many names it's had).  Y'know, the card that functions as an ID toshow who you are, a keycard to enter locked doors, mini-credit card to use public transport or whatever... I can think of half a dozen times that tried to get off the ground, and how it was guaranteed we'd all be using them soon!  And they never did.
People genuinely don't like bold, new, out-of-nowhere technologies.  We like evolutionary steps from one existing thing to the next.  All the proof you need is in every single Brand New Idea that was dripping with sheen, and which failed dismally.

Which is why I think a QC movie would work so well.  AnthroPCs are just the natural evolution of an iPhone and one of those little robot dog things.  And you know they're coated with a thick, greasy layer of sheen.
Well, a thick greasy layer of... something.

Lets hope it's not this...

Don't mind me, though.  I like living in the future, I really do.  Sometimes I have the same Gee Whiz moments Raoullefere speaks of, and sometimes I really do see the sheen again. 

I think the holiday just has me down.  Another summer gone, and all the projects I had lined up (and have had lined up for several years) are still un-begun. 

Oh, and I totalled my car Friday.  Hit a bear.  I now have no way to get to work. 

Fucker ran off into the woods, too.  Didn't even have the decency to be seriously injured...

Bleah.

On the plus side you can now introduce yourself as a Bear Fighter.  And since it ran, that's a forfeit, so you win.

You are a VICTORIOUS Bear Fighter.

He ran out in front of me first.  Across two (empty) lanes.  I had plenty of time to watch the ungainly gate and contemplate what was about to happen.  I even hit the brakes.  hard.  Or it would've been a lot worse (it wasn't quite airbag force).  He (she?  I didn't get the chance to ask...) got knocked down, tumbled over a few times, got up, shook off, and kept right on running. 

Not even a dirty look or acknowledgement.  No scream, no growl, nothing.  I was a piece of furniture he bumped into. 

A friend said he must've been running from something else.  I'm glad whatever scared a full grown (~400 lb) black bear didn't follow it out onto the road...

And no, it's not bear season here yet.  That starts in November.

I'm in Australia, so I can't help with the car.  But, may I suggest that you simply solve this problem by riding the bear?  It's clearly tougher than your car was, so it's a superior choice.  And since you've already bested it in combat, it has to do what you say.

While that idea has a certain appeal, and I'm sure it would impress the hell out of my students, winter's coming on soon.  Waking the bear out of hibernation just to get to work would be damn near impossible. 

And the mileage isn't that great.  They eat a lot...

Student: "Ah, no, I don't have my portfolio…I kind of forgot…I was really busy with the float this weekend…well, yeah, you did assign that three weeks ago, but time kind of slips away, you know?"

There was a fake movie poster for a QC movie, but I can't find it.

I think it was the Scott Pilgrim-esque one over on Jeph's Tumblr account.

There was a really horrible one with Christina Ricci (I think) in it a while back.  I mean, it was technically pretty well done, but all the casting choices were horrible.

However, to reverese the trend Akima has brought up aout using non-Asian actors to play clearly Asian characters we need to cast Akima in the role of Faye.

Carl - you can take on Marten and Raoul, you've got Steve

I started to object, then realized Steve is probably one of the most fun roles to play in the entire cast. So send me a script!

I can't think of indie busty girl with glasses without immediately going for Thora Birch. So I guess she'd be my Faye..
I like the idea of Nora Zehetner for Dora, but she's pretty tiny so that'd be a change. Carey Mulligan would be cool too.
For some reason I like Alona Tal or Angela Bettis as Hanners. The former is used to prettier roles but I like her, worse comes to worse Alona is Penelope.

Emile Hirsch as Steve.
I have no idea for Sven.
And maybe Joesph Gordon-Levitt for Marten. Mayyybe.

Storyline wouldn't need to be too farfetched, maybe a roadtrip??

Someone said first 600 comics and I think that works, just sub Tai for old boss and Penelope for Sara.

Nah, I want to be the key grip.

How hard can it be to hold onto the keys?

Besikdes, we're casting Carl-E as Marten.  Haven't you been following the thread?
