STUPID and Contagious

Our holiday home from stupidd.blogspot.com !

lost in time, like tears in rain

Lovely work by Lady Vervaine

A futuristic looking London and a great snippet from the magnificent Blade Runner, an amazing piece of dialogue which was ad-lipped by Rutger Hauer.

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain ….

Time to die.”

Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty in ‘Blade Runner’

Directed by Ridley Scott; written by Hampton Fancher & David Peoples; based on the novel ‘Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?’ by Philip K Dick

Philip K. Dick, Curtis Mayfield & The Matrix

Very surprisingly, Dick in a Box is not the official name for that nasty XXX home movie made by supreme dick Colin Farrell with uber-hot and uber-slutty Nicole Nasty Narain! Actually that crappy tape should be called Dumb Dick in a Nasty Box !!

No, it’s actually a very good blog with a focus on the works of the great Philip K Dick.

Check it out here: Dick in a Box

I read a lot of PK Dick’s novels back in the day. He had a great writing style, rather uniquely so in that genre, and could tell a really strange tale really strangely well.

The content of some of his work has been amazingly prophetic! Maybe he should’ve been called Philip Nostradamus Dick!

Also, too, a lot of his work has very wrongly been ripped off since by other so called artists in various media. Still is, to this day.
Here’s an interesting piece on The Matrix and how it was influenced by Dick’s The Penultimate Truth.

Philip K. Dick, Curtis Mayfield & The Matrix

I’ve been reading The Penultimate Truth by Philip. K. Dick and I was struck by a number of things.
First of all, the book’s influence on the film The Matrix seems profound. Of course, I have read that PKD was an influence on the film before, but surprisingly, not one mention of PKD is found on the Wikipedia article about the film. What’s up with that!!? Clearly the Tom Mix is the literary precursor of the Nebuchadnezzar. And the whole plot of the Matrix, with machines living off the generated power of enslaved humans is taken directly from the Penultimate Truth. Except that in the movie, the Yance-men are replaced with robots. But given PKD’s M.O. one could argue that the Yance-men are robots. Indeed, Yancy is just a simulacrum through which the above-ground elite feed their lies to the people underground. I’m sure this has been noted before in blogland, and if so, someone point me in the direction.
On a side note, for Penultimate Truth lovers out there, check out Curtis Mayfield’s classic “Underground” from his album Roots. Here you’ll find PKD’s influence on Chicago Soul. I have no proof that Curtis Mayfield ever read PKD, but if I were to create the soundtrack for a Penultimate Truth film, it would open with “Underground.”
