Utopian Interlude

With all the talk of zombies and armageddon lately, I thought it would be nice to have a utopian interlude. I pulled this Westinghouse ad from the amazing Paleo-Future blog, a daily chronicle of the future that never happened. Elektro is awesome! He sells appliances and sings and smokes! I don't know about Sparko though. Rags the robotic dog from Woody Allen's Sleeper is a much more pleasing artificial companion.

Interestingly, I just bought Dylan's album Bringing It All Back Home, and was just listening to "Gates of Eden" while writing this, which seems to be about paradise lost, kinda. I guess we can't help but return to zombies and armageddon, eventually.
