Wow, this Boing Boing post brings back fond memories. Mondo 2000, a cult-of-technology-culture magazine like no other. I read each new issue religiously when it came out, mostly because they didn't make much sense when read as secular prose. They proudly quoted outrageously negative reviews on the pull-out subscription cards. "Unreadable salad!"



Aaaagh! Help! I'm nostalgic for Post-Postmodernism! Kill meeeee!

...Recurses, foiled again.

Somehow, the future came and went without really happening.

-Trip

I'll see if I still have them. And, if I do, whether I can part with them. ==> probably, to both.

This post, especially the line 'the future came and went' really reminded me of this comic.

I have all but the last one. They were like a lifeline thrown out to me in College Station: my people were out there, somewhere.

I was here, drinking straight from the Kool-Aid firehose, and consequently feeling all the more inadequate. One might even say I was "in charge" of some important bits of computer-mediated culture ... but I still wasn't invited to those parties.

I remember reading the first issues of this and getting my mind blown. I remember thinking: "I better hurry up and get cool so I have some idea of what these crazy people are talking about."

Ooo, I forgot all about Mondo 2000. Thanks for this trip down amnesia lane.

BTW, I found your journal because I'm looking at the journals of the other 35 crazy people who have both 'sarcasm' and 'time travel' as interests.

Howdy.

"Sarcastic Time Travelers" - That would make a nice title for an anthology. hm...
