Upside's Down

Click the pic to see my latest column. They put my name on this one but the sketch is of the guy who used to write it. We're getting there:

An interesting thought. I see a lot of SF movies and shows tend to take this as the future in showing tall, tall buildings going up and through the clouds. I just watched the early episodes of the STar Wars saga and saw this illustrated on the civilized planets. For someone like me, though, who grew up in wide open spaces and still loves 'em, it's kind of scary.

interesting eh? that height is seen as a pinnacle of civilization. ever watch futurama? i love the first episode when they time lapse a thousand years and you see the city build up and up, get shot down by invading aliens, build up and up again, get shot down by invading aliens again, and get built up and up again.

Yes, I'm a big fan of Futurerama. I was even thinking of the Jetsons here.

You don't look anything like that guy.

This was an interesting article - building up instead of out. I think Dubai has the crown jewel on that one. I like the pile of buildings sketch too.

Toast: yeah, the artist at the coast is good, i like the things he comes up with.
