You know what sounds fun? Existentialism! 
Because oh my god, time keeps flying by. It's already been eight years since I joined DeviantART (for the first time, that is), but that's the least of it. I'm interacting with people online who were born after I had already been on the internet for years! There are kids who don't even remember what it was like back in the day because they weren't born to experience it. And times that I thought were awful, I now feel nostalgic towards.

For example! Would you consider the early 2000s to have a really strong theme? Some sort of cultural identity? If there were a new Grand Theft Auto game set in 2002, would you think that it was as stylish and nostalgic as Vice City? Because newsflash: we're as far removed from GTA Vice City's release as it was from its setting— 16 years. Yep. 2018 - 16 = 2002. 2002 - 16 = 1986. Rockstar could theoretically create a cheeky early-2000s murderous theme park revolving around the release of their own game, a game that helped to establish the identity of the times at that.

In fact, to those born in the late '80s and early '90s (let's say 1986 to 1994), think back to your childhood. Now try to put it into perspective. 2018 is to 1990 what 1990 was to 1962. It only gets worse from there. 
When I was young, I thought people born in the '80s were teenagers. Even when I myself was a teenager, the idea of being born in the '80s still made you sound young. Yet if you were born in 1988, guess what— you're 30! And no, it's not gonna stop anytime soon. That number's gonna tick, tick, tick upwards at an ever-increasing rate.

hey I have a vague memory of you writing these fiction pieces about a Soviet Union that lasted into the future (or something like that?), where can I find some of the stuff you write?

Soviet Union in the future...? I can't recall doing anything like that. Are you thinking of the story that was sort of like a Russian/French Revolution in the future?

yeah I'm genuinely not sure, it might be that one -- do you have a link where I can read it?

Not really narrative; just blog posts of worldbuilding, but it's here: www.futuretimeline.net/forum/t…

Haven't seen you on the Sega forums in a while. I genuinely got worried about you.

That's because I got the hell outta there while I still had my sanity. Also, I gave up on Sonic in 2013. I can't believe it's been 3 years already...

Oh hi! Have you heard of Sonic Mania and the 2017 Project?

I have, and it sounds interesting. But I'm staying well away until after it's all said and done.
