"There are... the fictional characters of the present day, and again they're drawn from an even wider variety of media than we were employing in 1969, but this is probably just me and Kevin's take upon it, but you can't help but think that there's a certain degree of... a process of degrading that has kind of gone on, a deterioration.

And I suppose that, in Century as a whole, I mean we're going to be starting off with Bertholt Brecht and the Threepenny Opera which is pretty cool, and then y'know, 1969 we're referencing all these films like Performance and Get Carter which while perhaps not the Threepenny Opera were still pretty good, and in 2009 of course we're referencing the stuff that's around today which doesn't even feel to me like it compares with Get Carter, Performance, or even Villain which wasn't the best film in the world but you know, at least had a performance by Richard Burton and Ian McShane in it that was very watchable.

So I think that might end up being one of the subtexts of Century as a whole, that it will be just this slow degradation of culture, you know sort of in the space of a hundred years."

Oh shit. I'm actually posting something MARVEL. That can't be right given my track record. Hmm...maybe this is a sign something really *is* going wrong with me lately.

That being said, onto the pretty pictures! )
