1/10/01- 01/../01

1/10/01- 01/../01 dates look very strange to me. I thought 2001 would be all futuristic and shit. I remember when I was 20 back in 1984 (another stigmatic date) and I thought, "Damn, I'm gonna be 36 in the year 2000 and 37 in 2001. I wonder how cool and futuristic and trippy everything will be?" Well guess what...were still driving cars with wheels and nobody but Beck and the few real astronauts of the world, wear a space suit on a regular basis. Man...we don't even have a moon base. That was supposed to happen in 1999, remember Space:1999 where by the moon's radioactive storage facility blew up and sent the moon hurtling through space? That was supposed to be two years ago damnit! All we got was a millennium celebration one year before the millennium and Art Bell & Company freaking everyone out with doom and gloom predictions right up until midnight December 31st, 1999. The computers are gonna crash! The world now so dependent on the computer will crumble! Civilization as we know it will end! Store your food! Get a gun! Look...I just wanted the damn moon to blow up like it did on Space:1999! I wanted to go on an orbiting space station that looked like a big Hamster Wheel in space like in 2001: A Space Odyssey! I wanted to drive a flyin' Police Car like in Blade Runner...but wait...that's supposed to be in 2019. I can wait just a little longer.
