Fiction becomes fact when you believe it.
Science Fiction as Futurism in film and fashion
Hence new BLADE RUNNER,AVATAR,TERMINATOR
Vision is a franchise sold on familiarity of icons
STAR WARS sold as year marketing bookends
much as LORD OF THE RINGS/HOBBIT to exhaustion
"Mama,We Are All Futurists Now!"Tomorrow shocks today
with Mall shootings,Airport Manchurian Candidates/conspiracy theories.
Whatever you market has a demographic.Whatever sells can be resold.
Poetry in advertising,and as subliminal marketing.Prophecies ,Numerologies-BUY!
Health tips and film fashions make New Celebrity Status.Young Rappers Know-
they imitate Jay Z and his baby Kanye-or Kim and Nicky.Headlines Gossip-
new baby/marriage/divorce/love/sex tape-whatever sells-recycles.
That riff you are hearing through this-belonged to Bruce Sterling&William Gibson
They stole it from headlines and movies and advertising
You can sell this line of merchandising again.
Just change the name at the head
Like corporate takeovers..
