Lucifer's Technologies: The Original Series Returns

By far the most popular series in the history of The Secret Sun was 2016's Lucifer's Technologies series, which looked at the explosive growth of computer technology following World War Two and argued that its birth may be a little weirder and more troubling than what you may have been told in school.

The things I found about the creation of the transistor and microprocessor - and the men behind their creation - not only changed the way I saw high technology but eventually led me to realize that this world is powered by sorcerers and not scientists.

Meme Joe Greeme

Soulless vessels are going to be BIG next year, even more so than this year. But since viral agents and virulent phages are now just shooting out of our every orifice, follicle and pore like a perpetual volcanic explosion, Kim's new look is fashionable and functional.

Regression Toward the Meme

Pretty much exactly how it happened. If you look closely, you can see George HW Bush hiding behind one of those trees.

"What More Do You Need?"

One of my favorite 90s films is The Rapture, written and directed by Michael Tolkin, and starring Mimi Rogers and David Duchovny. Instead of the usual Hollywood sneer-fest, the film treats the topic and its subjects with the utmost seriousness and then goes whole-hog in the climax, which I have to admit I was definitely not expecting.

I love this scene in particular, seeing how it has a fellow freed prisoner ask a petulant Mimi Rogers, "What more do you need," as Gabriel blows his horn and the big show begins. See, I often think the same thing when it comes to the endless signs and wonders connected to another apocalyptic herald, one you may have heard a thing or two about around these parts.

No One's Going Anywhere

The latest Melt-A-Thon rant session is now up on The Melt. Two and a half hours of tilting at electronic windmills and screaming into the NatSecState's technocratic void, all leavened with generous dollops of gallows humor.

I Don't Meme to Be Labor Day the Point, But...

Just a few random memes for a lazy Labor Day weekend. Take 'em or leave 'em, you don't even need to believe 'em.
