J.G. Ballard and the Future


James Graham Ballard died a few days ago, one of the greats of the New Wave of Science Fiction, and a great dystopian writer.

Here’s a quote that pretty much sums up the only thing to fear about the Future:


I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: boring. And that’s my one fear: that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again… the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul.

I think about that vast, conforming suburb of the soul, and it chills me to the bone..

New kind of Aliens, or?..

Two separate videos have surfaced by way of Whitley Strieber showing what appear to be stick-figure-like humanoid forms, and I am using the word humanoid in a liberal sense.
The first one shows footage from Fresno, California, and the other one from Santa Rosa de Quives in Peru.

No that’s weird. If this isn’t some traffic inducing – meme generating hoax, then.. WTF?
