Taking the Mickey

Once more I have been blessed with a mail from the great Supershadow himself.

–oOo–

Grandad sitting here in my villa overlooking downtown LA I have had a vision of the future.
I spoke to you about the miraders. those off world entities (possibly our creaters) and the predicament of their search for their maker.
We look up for paradise but we will never reach it. unless it falls. I want to travel to the stars.sadly this will not happen in the near future.  Sometimes I wish gravity was just a good idea rather than the law.
However I will never apologize for having high standards. Its not your fault that you could never rise up to meet them.
I believe in one world government. I look at national  governments but I only see court jesters behind the throne.
I pay for water. In fact I have written to my congressman demanding that I be charged more carbon tax.
What do you want? future generations in your country dying on the streets because they have not clean water.
If it was me over there I would be thanking ‘Irish water’ for encouraging me to conserve a precious resource.
This is the problem grandad. you can never see beyond your front garden. But I am not like you. I am a passionate star wars fan. I want to travel to the stars and meet other races. We cannot have this without world unity. People like you get in the way of people like me with your resistance.
Mirader continually searches for the supernatural maker. It is the jedi lead one world government that will appease these overlords anger which will grow as they realize the fruitlessness of their quest .
The regional shaaba will protect the public from themselves.
and  yes Grandad  I hear voices in my head, but when what I hear is absolutely awesome  I realize that I am one of the chosen ones.
people like you have no idea how to run a planet. The ideal Human does not smoke or drink, obeys laws and does not get angry. It is up to a future jedi council l to make the people ideal. If you make it to the age of  singularity you may thank us for it grandad.
Everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die. With the miraders knowlege we will make our own immortal heaven
for the majority it is negative to be unique. If we all think alike there will never be need for argument. constraint over choice.That is heaven for the masses. It will be a better world. A new calender back dated to 1977 (Year 1). The future will be 100 PER CENT predictable. The stock markets will be banned along with weather forecasts.

Get used to me grandad. This is a face you are going to see more of in the future.

We seemed to have changed gear?  No longer am I being slapped on the bottom for being a naughty boy, but rather we are getting a vision of the future as seen by SS, and quite frankly I would rather my wrists be slashed with rusty barbed wire than face into that future.

I believe in one world government. I look at national  governments but I only see court jesters behind the throne

We finally agree in something.  Not the one world shit, but the crack about the court jesters is spot on.

I pay for water. In fact I have written to my congressman demanding that I be charged more carbon tax.

Whoa there! Carbon tax on water?  For someone who has such an incredible intellect you have played a real dumb card here.  Water has fuck all to do with carbon and vice versa, and you really should know that.   An why write to your congressman anyway?  If you really seriously want to pay more tax then just pay it.  I’m sure your tax man will be delighted.  Or you can pay your extra tax to me.  I could do with an extra few bob from time to time.

What do you want? future generations in your country dying on the streets because they have not clean water.

Sweet sufferin’ Jayzus but you really are being dense now.  Water is not manufactured so not paying for it does not mean it will cease to exist.  It is the most recyclable renewable resource there is.  It is all around us and always will be all around us, particularly here in Ireland.  As I write, it is pissing down out of the heavens and I have to go out shortly so just at the moment I could do with a little less of it.  The only way the world can ever run out of water is to heat the entire planet to over 100 degrees, and even then the water will exist in the atmosphere in the form of vapour. 

The ideal Human does not smoke or drink, obeys laws and does not get angry.

Indeed, I can see how this is precisely what our gubmints want – nice meek non-thinking little idiot robots to do their bidding. 

If we all think alike there will never be need for argument.

What an incredibly dull and dreary vision that conjures.  No argument; no debate; indeed no conversation.  All discourse will be reduced to bland platitudes.

Actually, SS, you can achieve this perfect state of non-thinking, law abiding servitude right here and now.  All you need is a frontal lobotomy.  Maybe you’d like to try it?

That is heaven for the masses. It will be a better world. A new calender back dated to 1977 (Year 1).

1977?  I know that’s the year that damned Star Wars thing hit the screens, but where does that place me?  What age will I be?  37?  I suppose I could live with that.  And incidentally, if the calendar starts in 1997, then that’s year zero.  Just thought you should know.

The future will be 100 PER CENT predictable. The stock markets will be banned along with weather forecasts.

So what happens to anticipation and pleasant surprise?  How really fucking tedious and boring that would be.  It would put all clairvoyants out of a job too?  I could happily live without the stock markets [and the world probably would be better off without them] but weather forecasts?  What would they broadcast after the news?

This time around he actually signed off with a name – Mickey Suttle and even graced me with a photograph –

Not Supershadow

Unfortunately I think he may have made a mistake though and sent me an image of Ray Park.

Maybe he really meant to send me one of Mickey Suttle?

 Mickey Suttle

Somehow not quite the same charisma?

Quite a let-down in fact.

  1. a message to supeshadow we see you…

    We are borg…Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

    • Now stop that.  Please show some respect for one of the greatest intellects of our times [even if he doesn't know that water is a renewable resource and has fuck all to do with carbon].

        • I have known about him for ages, back to the days when he used to post photographs of models on his website claiming they were his girlfriends.  Sadly his website [and the girlfriends] are no more.  I probably know more about him than he knows about George Lucas.

    • Welcome Stephen!  Indeed I am always delighted to get mail from him.  It's a pity he won't comment directly, but I suppose it's beneath his dignity?  As for Star Wars – the only good thing about the one film I did see [the original] was Carrie Fisher.  Heh!
