Hey, remember at the end of the Incredibles? When that guy said “And when everyone’s super… no one will be.”? Is that what you’re getting at?
There’s a nostalgia in everything. Even the things we would find insupportable if they touched our lives today.
Plus it’s mostly about “The Blob.”
The trick is to be as outrageous as possible to stay ahead of the curve.
Except it’s more of a slope than a curve. So the real trick is to get everyone else to think that way and quietly live well and successfully.
Now i cant sleep either…
The Artic Circle thing may me think of ’58 “The Blob.” Good job on that!
But Girl saying, “Good night,” reminded me of alternate titles for Good Night Moon. Bad job on that?
Dorothy, how dare you not know what associations Rory’s psyche was capable of drawing?!?
Mainstream as an amorphous monster that destroys all it touches and gains strength from consuming individual things, thoughts, beings? Good job on that. In this story, however, the monster didn’t fall on us, we strove to create it and still tie much of society’s fate to it’s survival.
In cat’s reality, are internet comic authors the plucky highschool protagonists, speaking truth to the uninterested?
Rory, the 50’s movie you’re thinking of “The Thing” not “The Blob”. There weren’t no Blobs in the Arctic.
Unless you’re thinking of At The Mountains of Madness, by H.P. Lovecraft, which would be blobs (Shoggoths) in the Antarctic. In the 1920’s.
