Two Futures

Filed under: travel,weird — mhoye @ 5:31 pm

I was in Tsukiji and Akihabara yesterday, and I found the future. One possible future, at any rate. I didn’t find it where I expected to, so I’m going to let it rattle around in my head for a few days before I tell you about it.

I’m typing this on the Shinkansen, the bullet train, on the way to Kyoto and Nara. We just passed the Pokari Sweat factory, and whenever I see that name, I imagine a room full of knockoff pokemon shackled to treadmills, tubes leading from the bags strapped under their citrusy armpits into a huge, vaguely stalinist bottling machine. There are fields, Neo. Endless fields.
