throbadelic: (announcement)
Earlier I let loose on this page that I might have something to say about my medical future in regards to my current condition. Well here's the current low down: Shortly after the holidays, I'll be letting Dr. V reattach my tailpipe so I'll be able to get rid of *The Bag*. It seems that Dr.s V&M met up with each other recently at SWGHC and I was mentioned, and Dr. M said my progress was going splendidly. When I saw Dr. M on Monday, he told me of this and advised for me to make an appointment with Dr. V asap. I had scheduled it for about 2:30 this afternoon, but got out of Ireland CC about an hour and a half before my scheduled visit, so I went to the Sunrise Deli in the main lobby and grabbed a V8 and surfed the net a little more.

Arriving at Dr. V's office at 2pm, I pretty much starred at her aquarium for about 45 minutes while in the waiting room. I really don't know what she has in there for sure, but I know that there are three angel fish, two mini catfish, a black and orange fish that looks like a salt-water clown fish, and three others that I have not a notion as to what they are.

Anyway, after being called in by one of the assistants and shown the room I was to go in; blood pressure taken and a remark that I look different (I regained weight I had lost because of the NPO restriction I was on during my initial stay last year,) I must have waited about another 30~45 minutes for Dr. V herself to come in. Before a very TMI-type of exam I had to endure, we agreed that the procedure would be better if it was done after the holidays, but I'll know better after a follow-up on December 15th.
throbadelic: (Test Pattern)
I'm done (as of Sunday[8/15]) of watching "Max Headroom"; all I have are memories of spiced rum coolers and ranch chip dip. /obtuse

(LJ/DW extra): I'm going to watch the extra features just because I can, and I want to know more. I may search to see if anyone shipped any Edison Carter/ Theora Jones stories. I don't want to know about Murry/Bryce/Grossburg/Cheviot slash though... [shudders] Or perhaps a crossover or two.

It got me thinking of all the movies that were played out in a dystopic settings (yes, especially "Blade Runner") similar in a way to MH: the outcasts, the corporate control of society in general, and whatever tech the creative types who were dreaming nightmareing up these potential futures. (I'm referring them as potential as they haven't happened... yet.)

Max Headroom's society is based on the possibility that the future will have ten thousand channels/networks that everyone will get for free, yet there is really nothing on,let alone a computer network scheme that doesn't take the Infotubenethingamajig that we enojoy today into concideration, until Edison Carter's mind and memories are copied to computer files after getting into an "accident" when he discovers a dangerous TV advertisement technology (30 second ads compressed to 3 seconds a.k.a. "Blipverts") that causes fatal side effects to the lazy. Those files, plus Bryce's (Mr. Whiz-kid of the show) ability to make a digital avatar of those files,creates a simulation of Edison who in turn becomes a sentient program that bears the MH moniker.

The real difference between MH and all the rest, aside from the witty one liners from The Governator's that sometimes he said, is that the series can actually be funny and smart at times to buffer the depressing scenery.

To those who didn't get the food ref, Seagrams had a spiced rum cooler and Frito-Lay had a dip that was ranch flavored. I liked them too much before they got ganked just like Max did. Oddly enough, I consumed these products during during the show.

You know that brand-new 669", HD TV with internet you just got? You know, the one that's as inexpensive as LCD but better than plasma?
It may already be obsolete!
