William Gibson


Pages: 1 2
Well, what shall I say. Neuromancer is one of my favorite books. I'm a cyberpunk since then.

I did not read any of the other ones. Are they equally good ?

Gibson is the H.G. Wells of our generation......

I think that william gibson's play write of the miracle worker was very good, i had to read a play for drama and i am glad i chose it.

William Gibson the cyberpunk novelist and William Gibson the playwright are different individuals.

learn something new every day, huh?

pattern recognition was great. pick it up.

i've read a little gibson. he actually kinda scares me. i mean really! the future is all encompassing and everything is automated and everyone is out to get you. that freaks me out. killer robots are enough to give anyone nightmares. but i swear i'll finish burning chrome. eventually.

burning chrome, anyone?

i like the idea- sleek, going places. i'd like to see a Gibson-oriented tattoo movement, like with geiger's art.

>>By mad dog   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 02:56)

tattoos on bald heads and barcodes on the backs of necks and that sort of thing? it should be now, but i guess you should check back in 1000 years or so.

>>By queenie   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:01)

bio-mechanics was the word for it, a gibsonian tattoo would be more intergrated, like scales on a fish.

>>By mad dog   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:02)

scary scary scary. i like control of my mind thank you very much, and i don't really fancy fish scale tattoos.

>>By queenie   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:05)

and yes i know you didn't mean it litteraly.

>>By queenie   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:06)

tattoos on everything except the head. and ID chips on the back of necks. phones are getting smarter every day, who's to say where tech will be in even 5 years, to say nothing of fashion and music. Read virtual light.

i'm thinking we may already be there and i'm just missing it. wireless everything, tiny phones and laptops. soon everything will be in yr head. just blink yr left eye to dial out and yr right to log on.

>>By queenie   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:11)

it's a matter of implanting a driver's liscence, not mind control. trimming down and intergrating, like a circuit. Don't you appreciate Bauhaus? the movement.

>>By mad dog   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:14)

just pop a microsoft in the slot behind yr ear or din't you read Neuromancer?

>>By mad dog   (Friday, 14 Mar 2003 03:16)

i'm all for this "gibsonian" movement, but i'd like to be anything but an ant when it happens. can at least dictate a tiny country or something? i'd look good in the boots. [and are you gonna download a messanger service or do i have to keep hitting refresh?]

ha ha- yr funny. but you still can't squeal like a little girl scout getting poked in the ribs. all this william gibson has reminded me to take my dose. i saw one of those hybrid cars on the road today. made me think of A.I. and Blade Runner and the Japanese.

>>By queenie   (Sunday, 16 Mar 2003 05:54)

oh yeah- you need to let me borrow Neuromancer. i can't sit here and read, my carpal tunnel is acting up.

>>By queenie   (Sunday, 16 Mar 2003 05:57)

why can't you be on tonight? i need something to do until my dose kicks in. something besides smoking and doing jigsaws of kylie minogue. <insert titter here> argh. i'm tired enough to say things i'll regret in an hour. like- i drove by best buy today when i was out photgraphing mailboxes. calulating break times in my head. it would be nice not to be alone, but i guess 4 isn't really a lucky number is it? now i'm gonna lay there in bed obsessing over this. why yes santa claus- i am pathetic. i write better than i talk anyway. i can't slip 'like' in between every few words. so there i said it- the big white elephant that has been standing in the room can now leave. wow this went horribly wrong fast. i went from a really strong intelligent woman to "um, can you like, open this jar for me?" <insert gum snap here> and i was worried about the things i said on my webpage! now i'm babbling in a place that you actually visit! whatever. i've had a long hard day and now i need sleep. i'll worry about this when i wake up in a cold sweat.

>>By queenie   (Sunday, 16 Mar 2003 06:08)

argh- let's just invite that elephant back ok?

>>By queenie   (Monday, 17 Mar 2003 05:45)

i'm attempting to read 'close to the machine' by ullman. its boring. just pages of some chick talking about code. if i don't understand something i at least want it to be entertaining (like gibson). i can't imagine making a movie out of that book, i can imagine william gibson movies. i wish they would make a movie out of hinterlands from burning chrome. maybe some visuals will help me out.

>>By queenie   (Monday, 17 Mar 2003 17:15)

there have been movies made of johnny mnemonic and new rose hotel both of which i have.

>>By mr. lee   (Tuesday, 18 Mar 2003 04:14)

and i wouldn't worry. only you know what you mean, mostly. what a salad that was. kerouac would be pleased.

>>By mr. lee   (Tuesday, 18 Mar 2003 04:19)

i wanted to pick you up tom. affy, but turns out she doesn't have off. thursday is looking stormy, so friday is prolly it. instead of paying library fines i should just borrow from library lee. i know you have neuromancer, but how about on the road?
