Jesus in the Sky with Diamonds

Well it's 2008. Yep. And you know what? I still don't have a jetpack. Nope. I take the fucking bus to work.....In 2008.

Not THIS:



But THIS:



Mother fucking bus.

However, I do often ride the subway, and if I wear a space helmet during the ride it's pretty interstellar. Also, according to Oh Gizmo!, jetpacks are "old news" as "rocket belts" have been around since the 1960's. They're just really impractical and dangerous. So that's cool.

But enough about the lies of modernity, here's some music to help wrap up the holiday season. All of these songs keep the Christ in Christ-Mass, and show that Jesus, never far from the lips of pop musicians, still makes a good song title or band namesake after all these millennia.

Rebel Jew - Silver Jews

Frequency - The Jesus & Mary Chain

Jesus - The Velvet Underground

They Hung Him on a Cross (Demo) - Nirvana

Spiritual - Johnny Cash

I remember when you talked about this at Bunky's on January 1st waay back in 2005. You were completely baffled by the lack of flying cars that day my friend. The future/present is a strange time to be alive. OR, hah, "The future ain't what it used to be"...as Yogi Berra once said.( Who am I kidding I totally thought the Doors said it.How should I know who Yogi Berra is, I'm a FOREIGNER!)

Today has been incredible though, because I am officially done with my thesis. Life is beautiful again.

I kind of lament that my life isn't more like the Jetsons, but this page convinced me that future forms of transport might not be all that great after all. WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF TOMORROW!!!!
