Futuristic adj. 1.
denoting or relating to design etc. that is thought likely to be current or fashionable at some future time.
Life has an insistent inability to live up to the aspirations of the imagination: visions of the future stale quickly: the future arrives: appears just off the past: the off-white of the future: not silver: not fully automated. (The aspirations of an imagination whose only outlet was quasi-operatic spasmic tics: histrionically built up and broken down: higher up and further in.) What then of a futurism that isn't the mech-robot fetishism of Linkin Park or the Flaming Lips (though theirs is actually possibly retro-futurist chic, like Playstation 2)? A quiet futurism of return? A futurism which looks to the future rather than imagines it? A consciousness who knows there is. no. future. not one he could ever live in, just like he never found a present he could fully embrace: Billy Mackenzie. This is written in anticipation of Jonathon Dale's Associates epic: I have never heard the Associates and my only contact with Billy Mackenzie is one downloaded song: "When the World was Young": a cruel title: drenched in reflection: reflexiveness. I have never heard the Associates is a lie: I have heard one song: violently built-up urban pop-opera: sheer existential disco drama: pure release and flex: frightening, almost, in its lack of regard, it's lack of… reverence.
"Do-do-do-do, do-do-dooo-do-do-do, do-do-do-do" hardly complex or original: a doo-wop lead: such simplicity or sonic univentiveness can't hardly be futuristic, now, can it. Why must our futures be more complex and original? General trend? These are questions I hardly have answers for. I could probably further explanations for the various future-fictions that are common (robots, silver,Laptops etc) but that would be a felicity to far: stick to the song at hand: sweep up your room.
