Time for some more retro-futurist eye candy in lieu of intellectual content, because, well, I don’t want to leave it too long between posts here and I can’t at this particular moment in time think of anything intelligent to write. (I’m reserving all that for writing Apollo Quartet 4; that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.) Anyway, pictures…
