Cyberpunk in 2016
So, when I say we living in a cyberpunk world right now, Perhaps I’m not mentioning Gibson’s sprawl trilogy. Perhaps I’m mentioning Max Headroom. The late 80s dark comedy/thriller which is a almost too close to home parody of consumer culture. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7GE0KKMU5I Well, here in 2016, the President has just pardoned a sadistic cartoon villain western sheriff soley for television ratings. The man who at one time was the host of a popular TV show, who ran as the anti-media candidate has pardoned a truley villainous man for ratings. At this point, I am not even shocked, but I fear for the future of this country.
