Charles snippy: TRANSFER

Sat Feb 11, 2012, 5:33 PM



ENTRY: 377:

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.

Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.
Everyone was happily, playfully, and joyfully ignoring the world outside of the protectorate city Domes and Directorate Cubes. Why bother with the environmental damage reports when the latest celebrity trends are so exciting?
Mercury in the atmosphere?
Pff, Fred Mercuro X just released his latest album available for download straight into your brain!
Satisfied and spoon-fed by ANNET 24-7 people begun to forget what the outside looked like.

The Directorate sold the Dead Zone as "Entertainment" and great fun was had by all, exploring ruined landscapes and documenting "strange beasts of the wastelands" on your mind-pad.


ENTRY: 398:

My transfer is finally approved! Such Joy.
Ironically, my only relief from my daydreams and nightmares is the Dead Zone. There are no ANNET transmitter towers in the Zone, except for the mobile transmitter in the All Terrain Vehicle, but it works like ass and the tourists whine about how they can't constantly mind-text to each other and have to resort to the "outdated" methods of "moving your lip muscles to communicate".

I will show you the World.
Scorched earth, shattered splendor.
Tell me, tourists, now when did
You last let your hearts decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
From the mountains of garbage,
To the glowing green seas.

A whole new world
Where the dead cities sleep.
We shall visit them now,
On an all terrain vehicle ride.

I love this week's episode. :D Oh, it's ironic that the wastelands later become torture for Snippy, what with the end of the world and Captain and such. :D

These logs are interesting/exciting in their ability to provide back story, and yet disturbing in how much they relate to our current time and life styles...

Everyone has to act. No one else but US has the chance to change the world.
Sign petitions, don't buy certain products, inform yourself, demonstrate, donate money to tried and proven to be beneficial NGOs. It ain't gonna be easy, but if we do NOTHING, the world won't have ANY chance to begin with.

Am i the only one who doesn't know why Snippy was strangling his sandwich? And i think i am also missing a disney reference in the last "rhyme".. can someone refresh my mind please?

As far as why Snippy strangling his sandwich... Remember when he was trying to strangle Pilot? He said, in the description underneath, "Make me into fish food will you?" Sound familiar? The Cancer is integrating his memory of that so when it goes into the next memory it feels like he was waking up from a dream of strangling Pilot, which he was, in a sense. He has also said on Facebook that he used to have nightmares about the future, which makes you wonder, was he dreaming about the Cancer, or is that just how his memory makes it seem? Or is it both? This is all a big f***ed up web of dreams and memories.

So I've been writing a fanfic for this and I'm surprised that these journals are almost matching the notes I've been making for the past month. I feel like a freaking psychic, that or I've way too perceptive on the little details for my own good.

In my environmental science class I'm currently learning about "Superfund Sites" or abandon toxic/hazardous waste areas.
The more I learn about the world around me, the more real your comic becomes...
It's rather freaky...

Ok, what I've been trying to understand is, is ANNET like something that can hook up to your actual brain frequency or would a person have to actually get some kind of like I dunno, appliance so it could do that?... I dunno, it kind of sounds like a stupid question when I think about it but yeah...

Well, I would assume that ANNET would need some sort of facilitator in order to be able to decipher the brainwaves between stray thoughts and actual purpouseful thoughts that people send to ANNET rather than private thoughts (if there would be those any more at that point)...possibly some sort of implant or patch on the back of the neck...
