Here is a scatter shot post if there ever was one...
My friend Guillermo loaned a book to little d called Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey. Dr. Grey believes aging is a disease that can be cured, or at the very least slowed, by preventing certain types of cell damage. He hypothesizes that life can be extended by 900 years.
His research was the springboard for a story idea I came up with (that’s temporarily stalled) called Who Wants a 21st Century Man?
Taking a break from writing, I googled my original title of 21st Century Man and found it’s very popular with musicians, like ELO, Nigel Clark, and the more quirky "21st Century Schizoid Man" by progressive rockers, King Crimson. What really stood out was their album cover for In the Court of the Crimson King.
The funky cover art, reminiscent of Munch's The Scream, is by Barry Godber (his first and only album cover). Godber was also a computer programmer. He died in February 1970 at the age of 24. The original painting is owned by Robert Fripp.

Ok, enough surfing, back to work...
