2013 Predictions

my predictions for 2013:

1.smartphones will continue to be larger(phablets) because very few people actually make calls anymore. Luddites/Hipsters continue looking for payphones and carry 50 cents in their pockets at all times.

2. Al Gore will try to sell his soul on ebay. No one bids on it.

3.The CBS network will finally cease to exist. All the old viewers will be confused and just watch CSPAN thinking it's a new episode of Matlock.

4. Fox will finally cancel all those damn sunday night cartoons and replace them with 2 hours of Howard Stern.

5. New alternative apartment art spaces will pop up and disappear.

6. Religious freaks will continue knocking on your door but Google will invent the star trek "tricorder" so they will be able to scan your place and see that people are home and ignoring the knock on the door.

7. Anonymous will finally be the TIME mag person of the year.

8. No one will care anymore about the Kardashians. TV shows canceled. They become the Vanilla Ice of reality TV. Kanye's music sales take a dive too. He goes nuts and just kills all of them. Bruce Jenner's face survives. Kanye gets life in prison.

9. Michelle Bachmann finally realizes her husband is gay and supports gay rights. No one cares.

10. Blackberry 10 is released and no one cares. RIM goes out of business but on their way out they release a youtube video of their executives singing  a Frankie Goes To Hollywood song. The web site REDDIT loves it and it becomes a MEME.

11. An artist installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art accidentally blows up the building.

dream 1-04-2013, 3:51am

Had a dream of walking to an outdoor one day art show in this decayed industrial area with destroyed buildings and walls leftover standing. This conceptual/graffiti female artist who went by the name "happy?" was showing installations using materials that blended with the raw industrial surroundings.

I was with a group of people, some of whom I recognized. The artist was explaining an installation in front of us which was a huge 300sq foot square made up of dirt, rocks and stuff sticking out which looked like metal hangers twisted into various shapes.

She invited the group to step into the installation and reshape the metal sculptures. So we did. I noticed as the crowd was stepping all over the dirt and rocks, that a few larger rocks looked like they were moved so I proceeded to move them back into place. The artist came by me and started yelling and saying, "Those are part of the installation and should not be moved voluntarily. You should only reshape the metal sculptures that I just explained!"

I apologized and after this ordeal the artist pointed to where we could get some drinks. It was an opening on the floor with a metal chute that lead down to a basement level. It did not look safe but most of us in the group slid down for drinks and further art chit chat.

After a while we walked back up to leave and there was a half demolished wall with an abstract mural with the name "happy?" spray painted below it. Next to it it said "next art opening: Barry McGee."
