It must be bad out there economically--here's a story about a guy who is selling the original starship model used in the movie Forbidden Planet. Before I'd get rid of this item I'd really have to be hurting---http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_11180380
Here are acouple of just plain strange items that i ran across...first a Mexican beauty queen--Miss Mexico or something like that was arrested with 7 guys, machine guns and dope in an SUV---sounds like a party going somewhere to happen----http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/americas/12/23/mexico.beauty.queen/index.html

Well, it's official---the future's turned out to be crap---the Nakagin building, (one of my favorite "buildings of the future") in Tokyo is in danger of being torn down--i can't stand it---to me this concept was wondrous. A building that could grow as necessary by merely attaching additional cube habitat's---i cannot believe that they are going to demolish this building!So many of the visions of the future from the 1960's and 70's were too hopeful, our future is actually going to be poor and lacking in vision i guess--what a bummer. http://gizmodo.com/5117473/nakagin-capsule-tower-looks-to-be-from-the-future-but-probably-wont-make-it-there
I so want one of these---Toyota's finally going to display their electric vehicle prototype...the photo's show a very collio--small--urban vehicle--i have mentally waiting for toyota to save the western world---vehicle wise---i hope this does not become the standard crap of ---this vehicle will not available in north america----Gawd i hate that----
Go out and eat dinner with friends and talk of the future--make a wind chime out of stuff that is lying around the house--pick a day and sleep in not by accident but because you've decided to---listen to NPR on saturday mornings it will make you happy!
