Queen Mu

Long time no post.
A huge wave of nostalgia just washed over me as I visited Boing Boing and saw that Bart Nagel was selling a whole crapload of Mondo 2000 paraphernalia. I used to worship Mondo2k as the be all and end all of... well, just about anything. Part of me still does. Why did I never get around to becoming an overt cyberpunk? Though that's not really the right word for it.
"Next year, when I've got more time," I'd always tell myself. It's a sad thing when you can feel yourself bursting with a culture that you're never openly part of. Or even privately part of, for that matter. I've been in love with the ethos embodied by Mondo2k for over a decade. When do I get to act on that? When can I convince myself that it's finally OK?

Now's the time, Jacob! Now! How does a cyberpunk look? Can I knit you something?
