In case you haven't been paying attention, the #cyberpunk dystopia is already here and in full swing, folks.
Last night's movie was Blade Runner ("More human than human, that is our motto"). God, that movie is so visually incredible. I see so many things that came after it in watching it. Had any films prior to that had that kind of look before? It's quintessential cyberpunk before anyone knew the term.

#PennedPossibilities 150 — What inspired the idea for your WIP? (1/2)
For this question, I'll be mentioning my original WIP that I use for #WordWeavers, if only because it's something of MINE. It's called The City of Opulence. I'm in love with #cyberpunk work. I played #Cyberpunk2020 and #CyberpunkRED growing up. It's a genre I've always loved. Films, shows, games, all of it. It's influenced me over the years in my writing. The TTRPG's I mentioned were where Alexios was born. :cybre_heart_pink:
Alright, #BandcampFriday post for my peeps on the other side of the globe (yay, timezones!).
I have a new track out:
"Hackers" is a fun cyberpunk inspired little ditty, mixing synthwave with some post-dubstep vibes. Provided CC BY-NC-SA. :cc_cc::cc_by::cc_nc_eu::cc_sa:
(If you want to use it in something, 3€+ gets you a lossless quality instrumental, under CC BY for less restrictive licensing :cc_cc::cc_by:)
:newl: Bandcamp link :newr:
Editors of a stock agency I'm working with thought this was an Ai art and rejected because of that reason. Ai scrapes the best material from the web to create it's images so does this mean I'm better than Ai ?!

"It was so nice to catch up with everyone. What do you want to eat on the way home?"
"OR, we could get noodles?"
"You always pitch that, I want to eat something that doesn't come with a prion disease."
"You know, I've got a voucher for House of Meat."
"I knew you'd see sense."

This also goes to the 'first wave #cyberpunk' vs 'commercialized cyberpunk' discussions that periodically crop up. 1st wave #cyberpunks deeply internalized that idea, that the rich would use tech to get richer. They were all of an age & out of a space where suspicion of the establishment (& what's more establishment than tech?) was valorized.
#WordWeavers 11.27 — At what point during the writing of your WIP do you know what the last line is going to be?
I haven't come to that point yet for The City of Opulence, a #cyberpunk / #SFF novel. I will say, however, that it was different for every WIP of mine. The moment you realize it, when it hits you, it will be random. No two experiences will ever be the same. Thoughts come to us in a myriad of different ways. Sometimes it's a line, maybe just a quote, but all at the oddest of moments.

love all the thinking about cyberpunk here, today.
it's got me wanting to reread ren warom's excellent post-cyberpunk ESCAPOLOGY duology, with a more critical/theory lens.
(i'm calling it post-cyberrpunk because...i'm not sure i could classify the duology as noir? but that's also part of why i need to reread them with a critical lens.)

DID I MENTION THAT MY LATEST SHORT STORY, "MEGAMAW", IS NOW PUBLISHED IN #STRANGEMACHINES?
It's available now via #KickStarter. BuyBuyBuy! And perhaps my Capslock key will stop malfunctioning!
The amazing system agnostic #cyberpunk sourcebook "Augmented Reality" is now available in print via POD over on DrivethruRPG. I cannot recommend this book enough for GM's that need a little inspiration every now and then. #ttrpg
New blog post is up, titled "Solarpunk is people! - notes on a generic visual identity" by @arielkroon
Solarpunk has a contested visual identity - or rather, it doesn’t have one at all, compared to cyberpunk’s cohesive vision of Brutalist buildings. That’s a problem, but one worth exploring.
#WordWeavers 11.10 — Do your characters eat any unusual food?
I love this question.
My story is a #SFF / #cyberpunk one, so the answer would of course be yes. A lot of meat is synthetic. On Citune, the inhabitants have found ways to synthetically produce or create meat without ever having to murder innocent farm animals. Citune has a varied mix of cultures and species, and from that comes an array of cuisines. They have a variety of liquor as well. Alexios adores Ab-synth. It's his go-to.
Have a play with these little revealing tooltip effects using pixel and gooey animations! 👾
#WordWeavers 11.4 — Do films or theatre play a role in your story?
Films, maybe. It's a #SFF / #cyberpunk universe that I'm working on. It's an original story set on an original planet, and therefore everything within that universe is new and different. Theatre and films don't really play that huge of a role for the plot. Maybe Alexios will go to the cinema and see a film, but that's about it.
Now, if we were talking about my stories for The Hour, it would be a yes for both. Also music, too.
