The Double-Edged Sword of....

Rate this Entry
Having a head-cold.
On one hand, you feel miserable, and that sensation when you move your head and it feels like your balance-centers are 'lagging'...that's just weird.

On the other hand, for some reason, sometimes it revves up my creativity.
Downside is, it shreds my 'focus'...
I'm playing around with a new and completely experimental piece dealing with incest and BDSM. totally Consensual, and the youngest character is solidly 19 years old.
I dunno where the idea came from, but I'm just rolling with it while I fight this bug...and it's coming along pretty well.

I've also discovered something very NEW--well, to me anyways.
The early writings of William Gibson.
The BURNING CHROME anthology
NEUROMANCER
COUNT ZERO
MONA LISA OVERDRIVE

I looked up the copyright dates in the front of the anthology...I was like 3 when it came out and Cyberpunk came to the fore.
But, I have to ask...where did it go? Why did it just seemingly vanish??
Don't Care. I may not be W. Gibson, but I love this Cyberpunk stuff!!

So, maybe I'll give writing something Cyberpunk a try...maybe throw some Cyberpunk elements into THE RANCH as it's far enough in the future that I've got room to play. ;)

    Cyberpunk did sort of vanish. But what I know of it happened around the same time of the emergence of the internet. It was also met with a surge in movies of that same genre. As well as role playing games, some honoring Gibson others butchering his work. Some time when you're bored look up a game I used to be nearly addicted to. Cyberpunk 2020 and all of it's supplemental books .. I played that thing probably 3 times a week with my friends .. i was a GM I wrote stuff for it.

    then the nemesis .. Shadowrun .. a butchered hack of a game by TSR .. the guys that successfully rolled out D&D .. could not STAND that game.

    I'm gonna stick with what I've dug up regarding CPunk 2020, and what I did learn about Shadowrun...made my head hurt. I'll be using Gibson's works as 'springboards', as I really like the 'feel' of his writing style.
    Update the tech a bit, throw in some extrapolations off what's going on in the world today...and It Lives!!
    As far as I can see CPunk kinda got 'hijacked' by Dystopianism, and that went all Bad, but left out the Cool.
