The Future Now: What 1988 Thought 2013 Would Be Like

future la

I distinctly remember watching The Jetsons and being blown away by the concept of the video phone. No way could it ever happen, I just couldn’t conceive of that possibility. Boom. The future is here. It’s always fun to think about the future and what kind of utopia/distopia it’ll bring and that’s just what the Los Angeles Times Magazine did in 1988, they created an issue that was all about what the world would be like in 2013. TheAtlanticWire.com takes a good look at that issue and breaks down where they hit the mark and where they were just writing science fiction.

Check out the the whole thing here.

(I should also add I had a good friend who wrote in his college entrance essay about how he needed to get a degree so he could get a good job so he could afford a flying car cuz in the future we’ll have flying cars and…)


Writer Highlight Special: R.I.P. To Nekst

The graffiti world has lost another king, another too young king. I saw something on the internet a couple days ago but waited to believe anything until I talked to someone who actually knew. I didn’t know him personally but it also seemed like there would always be newer and more epic Nekst pieces popping up. He will always be remembered not only as a prolific bomber but for his fair share of pieces and freights and trackside rollers as well. Everything got hit. And got hit BIG.

All I can say is that hopefully in his life and death, there’s a lesson for all. Go big while you got it and live to keep getting it.

This first pic is from a piece done when I was working across the street on the Bowery and the first time I really opened up to him being a major player in doing big things, and doing them in very insanely high profile spots.
