The fact that the tree nuclear distasters in Japan, has all happened along a line, is something that I haven’t seen anyone even mention. It’s a curious fact, indead. The coincidence is stunning, in all its sadness and horror.

Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but still a creepy thing to consider.

When I was researching the ww2 nuclear bombings of Japan, I came upon a phrase, “early warning”, that in this context reminded me of a Rush song. I have never seen the video, so I decided to check it out. The context of the video turned out to be pretty interesting indeed.

How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb

Rush – Distant Early Warning

There are references in the vid to the Kubrick movie “Doctor Strangelove”, and also the 1945 Japan nuclear holocaust.

In the vid, there’s a boy riding on a nuclear missile, just like the ending of Doctor Strangelove.

As I had just learned, “Little Boywas the codename for the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Strange how so many things come together.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Adams

“Adams died of a heart attack on 11 May 2001, aged 49″. (One year before turning 50).

“A memorial service was held on 17 September 2001 at St. Martin-in-the-Fields church, Trafalgar Square, London. This became the first church service broadcast live on the web by the BBC.”

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Gutenberg Galaxy: The book: The video game: The interactive novel

“Douglas Adams created an interactive fiction version of HHGG with Steve Meretzky from Infocom in 1984.”
A Hitchkiker’s Guide video game. Released in 1984. This is a text adventure/interactive fiction, where you have to type sentences of what you want to do.

Radio Floyd-ah

“Adams included a reference to Pink Floyd in the original radio version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, in which he describes the main characters
surveying the landscape of an alien planet while Marvin, their android companion, hums Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond“.”

Hitchhiker: The book

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy novel was released in 1979.

1979=1997 flipped. (Also 1979=20 years before 1999.)

“Douglas Adams’s Starship Titanic” (1997), was written by Terry Jones, based on an idea by Adams.
1997=The year Titanic movie was released. Among many other things.

Titanic the vidya game

“Starship Titanic” (computer game) was released in 1998.
The novel came first. BUT. The novel (written by Terry Jones from Monty Python) was based on the video game, which came later. Book=written Terry Jones, but based on an idea and a video game designed and written by douglas adams.

Douglas Adams Starship Titanic

A conversation between a human (the player) and a computer. The player actually talk to the robots in the game, with actual words. The result is sometimes brilliant, and sometimes completely nonsensical.

Starship Titanic: The video game: The book

The book is more or less based on the video game, which is rather unusual. Usually it’s the other way around: the game that is based on the movie or the book. From wikipedia: “A novel entitled Douglas Adams’s Starship Titanic, based on the game, was written by Terry Jones.”

(On a personal note, I remember finding “Douglas Adams’s Starship Titanic” (1997) at my local library around the year Y2K. But I never got around to read it.)

The video game “Starship Titanic” was an attempt to use digital word recognition/natural language interpretation/ai in a video game. Meaning: that you can write full sentences into the game (when talking to robots) and they will try to make sense of what you’re saying.

A flight to remember

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Flight_to_Remember

“”A Flight to Remember” is episode ten in the first production season of Futurama. It originally aired in North America on September 26, 1999 as the
first episode in the second season.””The episode is a direct parody of the 1997 film Titanic, while the title is a reference to Walter Lord’s non-fiction book
about the Titanic disaster A Night to Remember.[1][2]”

“Fry, Leela, and Bender hand their resignations to Professor Farnsworth after narrowly escaping another delivery with their lives, but reconsider when he
announces that the Planet Express team will take a cruise on the maiden voyage of the largest space cruise ship ever built: the Titanic.”

http://www.wired.com/geekmom/2011/03/steampunk-weekthe-unsinkable-starship-titanic/
“The concept of Starship Titanic faded into obscurity for almost a decade until the BBC’s re-vitalised Dr Who franchise used it for the 2007 Christmas Special “Voyage of The Damned”.”

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Hitchhiker=journey/voyage.
Guide=Book. (A book even has a similar shape to the 2001 monolith)
Galaxy=space.

Hitchhiker + Galaxy=A space odyssey.

Space 1999

Moon landing=1969=1999 flipped=Space 1999. The TV series “Space 1999” was inspired/influenced by “2001 A Space Odyssey”. 1999=2001.

Voyage of the Damned

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyage_of_the_Damned_(Doctor_Who)
“”Voyage of the Damned” is an episode of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. First broadcast on 25 December 2007, it is 72 minutes long”

2007=27=72. Also 2007=10 years after 1997 (Titanic the movie/Starship titanic the book/video game)

“The narrative continues from the final scenes of both “Last of the Time Lords” and the mini-episode “Time Crash”, when a luxury space cruiser called the
Titanic, a pastiche of the historical ocean liner, breached the walls of the TARDIS.”

“On its original airdate, “Voyage of the Damned” was watched by 13.31 million viewers, the highest viewing figure for Doctor Who since the 1979 serial City of Death and as of 25 December 2012 it still has the highest viewership of any episode in the revived series.”

“The Titanic would crash, killing all life on Earth, and subsequently the remaining owners of the company would be arrested on charges of mass murder of the human race.”

“Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” tells the story about the end of the world. A gigant superhighway

WOW. The site to the 1997/1998 videogame is still UP. Even after all these years.
How many web sites from even the early 00s is still up?
Let alone from a (mostly) now-forgotten 1998 videogame.
Amazing.
