Gin is my golden apple.

It seems far more valuable than it actually is and can be abused to start wars that ultimately collapse civilization for several hundred years? Sounds about right.

I have no memory of writing the above post. Damn gin.

I can imagine a sci-fi genre (which probably already exists) in which the world is ending, but not uniformly, and not in a big dramatic crescendo. The world doesn't end due to wars or bombs or aliens or a big comet or anything... it's ending slowly, slowly being strangled by bureaucracy and reliance on systems that no longer function, or have long stoppages.

Like, picture Mad Max, but 7-11 is still open.

There's raiders and slavers... but also, there are still normal police...?

The Government is still there, it's just completely ineffective, if not actively malicious.

TV still exists, but no new shows are coming out, and nothing is filmed live anymore. All re-runs.

If you need medical attention, you have to barter with some shaman.. but you're at a mall kiosk.



One day, when I lived in Yonkers, a bunch of big-box stores in the same mall all went out of buisness in the same 4 months. The smaller businesses followed - it was like the mall was dying a slow death. I went to a bunch of GOING OUT OF BUISNESS  sales, and it eventually started to feel surreal... empty parking garages, dark store fronts, one lone light somewhere.



what are some other mid-apoc images?

The very first Mad Max movie seemed to exist within that world. It was post apocalyptic, sort of, but society still kind of existed.

Show me your belt of shrunken heads, then
How barbaric!  I would hope Hoopla does no such thing.

A proper gentleman keeps his shrunken heads on a shelf in a place of respect, and consults them when in need of wisdom.

Sounds like the kind of lame thing Hoops would do, yes.

I keep them in a shrine to Schlitzie the pinhead, nothing special.

Iím on team ďdrink ginĒ here. Iím also a fucking sewer beast, so maybe thatís a bad thing for Hoopla.

We have already established what sort of beast Hoopla is.  He's a pornography adjuster.

Former. Iím a head hunter now.

Hoopla has the code. I generally stay open until 11 or midnight. All spags invited.

I will be on in a little over an hour from now, when my shift is over.

My name is Hoopla and I make a mean box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, although we donít call it that where I live. Also, I like gin, which I am told makes me evil.

On further consideration, Richter is the Knight of Wands and Faust is the King of Coins.

Kindly ignore my last post, along with the bulk of my other posts
