I assume you've never watched Koyaanisqatsi, it compares cities to circuit boards. (And if you haven't watched it, you really need to. Despite being thirty years old, it blew my mind.)

YES! YES YES YES YES YES!!!! I've been wanting some actual fiction from you for ages. Personally, I'd like a paper edition. I'm old fashioned like that.

I noticed a couple of typos, but I think other people have them covered already. Anyway, I wrote something on my blog about MOTF: http://smellslikegeekstink.blogspot.com/2009/11/memories-of-future-by-wil-wheaton.html

This is an extra special episode of Memories of the Futurecast...because now I can follow along with the book! W00t!

Wil, I would love to hear an audio version of Memories of the Future. Even before the book was common knowledge, I loved listening to the original TV Squad versions on YouTube from various conventions and such. The written stuff is great, but hearing you read it has added energy and passion and sometimes sadness too. Please move it to the awesome file post haste.

I've just recently discovered Jonathan Coulton and he's awesome.

Sorry to hear this, Wil. I had never cried so much in my life the night my dog died. Loosing a pet really is like loosing a member of your family.

After which, you should check out TOMB OF THE CYBERMEN. thats a patrick troughton one from '67, i think. there aren't a lot from the late sixties that have survived intact because the bbc trashed a lot of the films. a shame really, what little i've seen suggests troughton was a fantastic doctor.

genesis of the daleks is cool and all, but seriously, you should check out THE DALEK INVASION OF EARTH. it was done in 1964, i believe, and takes place in future london when the daleks have...err, invaded earth. It old, the special effects are non-existant and sets are wobbly at best but it kicks all manner of arse. the shot of the dalek emerging from the water gets me every time. plus also they cleaned it up for the dvd release and it looks pretty good for something from the mid sixties.

Court Martial is CRAP. It's surrounded by so many quality episodes in season one, which doesn't help really, but it's so silly it makes ally mcbeal look credible. court dramas are hard to do in 45 mins, so everything is usually rushed. (Mesure of a Man rocks, though) That's really cool that you explain to your son what the big deal is with star trek and that the ideas inthe show were pretty radical at the time and that the stories had double meanings. i remember my dad doing the same thing with me as i watched TNG as a young child in the early ninties and telling me that a certain character or a story was really a metaphore for something deeper. Arean was wicked cool, though it is kind of lame now that the guy is in a rubber suit that he can hardly move in. It's pretty cool that Kirk is wrong about the Gorn. They do this in Devil in the Dark to, the way Kirk wants to destroy the Horta and Spock wants to study it, but it turns out that the creature is just protecting it's eggs.
