Dark Arts: Meet the architects of Tumblr’s cyberpunk renaissance
We’re in a weird time for the way the future looks; somehow House of Cards can slyly introduce a floating text-message interface to their present-day political drama without so much as blinking, but most of our iconic near- and far-future worlds run on tracks laid down well before the ’90s. And it’s not just the recycling of every franchise from Star Trek to RoboCop: Avatar’s and Prometheus’ huge budgets couldn’t hide their indebtedness to the grandiose sci-fi storyboards of the ’70s. Which isn’t even to mention Oblivion.

The Verge wrote about the cyberpunk renaissance on Tumblr and the Robotic Network got mentioned!
The Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion incident.
Back in ‘87 some wackadoo hijacked a Chicago TV station’s signal while wearing a Max Headroom mask, spouting various nonsense. It’s pretty bizarre.
I know I’ve reblogged this before, but I don’t care.
Did you like Marty McFly?
Kroll Show Season 2 - Episode 1: “Cake Train”
I don’t know what this is, but I’d like to.
Good ol’ Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot.
or, the original Giant Robo if you rather.
Thanks for the info!
I will be playing Kamen Rider, Takeshi Hongo, one more time.
Being able to play Takeshi Hongo, who will have been fighting somewhere around the world to this day, fills me with joy and gratitude to all my seniors who built the base on which Kamen rider stands and the staff that made it all possible.
Bringing back a national, worldwide known hero created by the effort of so many people, Mr. Shotaro Ishinomori being the first, I feel again the duty and responsibility of living up to the hopes and the admiration that people from inside and outside the country have felt for the hero.
Why does a Rider keep fighting? What for?
He is a hero that fights for peace and happiness, keeping himself unknown and disregarding his own sadness and suffering.
I wish to convey this mythology through a hero movie to younger generations.
I have visited nearly a hundred countries, and members of different peoples welcomed me as the “Masked Rider”.
I’m proud and grateful to be a part of something that communicates an undying spirit of justice and the unwillingness to give up, and that this work has been welcomed around the world.
And finally, the memory most deeply rooted in my mind will be that motorcycle incident during filming*, in which I fought for my life and was able to rise again from fear and uncertainty. The memory of that experience and the emotions I felt are something I will never forget.
There will be no higher happiness for me than to be able, through this movie, to let someone feel the real hero of love and bravery and the image of a true man.
I look forward to meeting you all through the silver screen.
I just want to say that this is why minority representation in the media matters. Mae Jemison was inspired to become an astronaut after watching Nichelle Nichols as Uhura on Star Trek.
Media is NEVER “just” media.
She also appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that LeVar Burton directed, and Nichelle Nichols visited her on set. :)
Uh, wolven, I know you apparently couldn’t negotiate Lucy Liu as per your last reblog, but… uh… well. I can’t help but ask. Is THIS what you needed those sigils charged the other night for? And how much is this going to cost us.
This is a…welcome side effect.
The full effect is much more important and remains to be seen.
I’ve made like 8 CDs, wrote a symphony, write for a TV show, paint classical portraits, made many films, had a soundtrack at the Cannes film festival, art directed a magazine, a black belt in two martial arts, was a frame carver, and did god knows what else… And my fucking hair is what I am known for? I wish I could be flattered by that… But I can’t.
Have you any idea how successful censorship is on TV? Don’t know the answer? Hmm. Successful, isn’t it?
