I remember when...

First, this goes into the "some people have too much free time" category-- it's a timeline of world events as presented in the movies. Starting with:

A long time ago... Luke Skywalker and Han Solo lead a rebellion against the evil empire(Star Wars) 26,000,000,000BC Los Angeles (and everywhere else) - The Earth's crust begins to harden (Adaptation)

and going to:

30,000,000 Earth frozen by an eclipse, intelligent life wiped out, day and night now the same (The Time Machine) 865,427,810 Alexander Hartdegen briefly arrives from 802,701 (The Time Machine)

Second, a subversive campaign that places empty speech balloon stickers on ads in the public environment -- which practically beg people to fill them in with whatever they feel is appropriate. For instance, a speech bubble on a male model holding a laptop in an IBM ad says, "I use it to download porn!" Ha! I saw these when I was living in NYC.

I SO want a bunch of those speech balloons to stick on the ads on MARTA... esp. the ones that are 18 months or more out of date.

(My verification word is elvsrx... the elves know what to prescribe for our problems.)

This also kinda reminds me of Implied Regurgitation, by Michael Pilmer, one of the friends/employees of DEVO. Apparently Mark Mothersbaugh has one of those stickers on a piece of artwork in his bathroom. (I seem to think it's his Freedom Of Choice gold record, but I could be misremembering.)
