and they won't let me live it down
that was william gibson's line in "wild palms".

it's been 10 years since it first came out. hella ahead of its time. the internet took off, our rights are being eroded, the beginnings of a secret police force are present, and it's getting to the point where you can't tell what's real or fake in the movies anymore.

anyway, i recommend people watch it. i think. i just started rewatching it. i'll let you know whether or not you should definately watch it once i'm finished.

i never watched it. it was broadcast during the time when i had to write my research paper for 9th grade honors english. i taped it, but the tape came out so horribly that i didn't watch it.

is it out on DVD? i should rent it, if so.

hmm, i dunno. i kinda doubt it, considering it was kind of a failure. i'm watching it on VHS.

hrm. since it's cult/cyberpunky i thought maybe it had a chance.

then again, since i'm still waiting for max headroom DVDs, i guess not. sigh.
