What’s up kids? Taking a one post break to let you all know about a new side project I’m working on, teaming up with New Age Amazon’s Ashly Nagrant on a site called Lost Continuity. It’s the brainchild of the both of us talking comics, sci fi, and pop culture in general, crossing the streams and inadvertently creating mashup universes that may or may not already exist. Being a firm proponent of the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, I like to see it not only as charging headlong into ridiculousness but really creating parallel realms of ridiculousness.
Yeah, my ego rolls that large.
Look, comics, games and sci-fi do it alllll the time – timelines get twisted, realities shifted, and things invariably find themselves in some sort of level of crisis. Be it final, be it on infinite earths, or be it just being hungry. You know you’ve done it too. I mean me and my grad school roommate once had a conversation on the speed of sriracha’s delicious flavor and whether or not it’s faster than lightning. That’s right. The speed of delicious flavor versus the laws of nature. And we were stone sober too. These things just happen on their own. Does it make sense? No. But does it have to? Not at all. These are the conversations you have that finish with “man we have to write that down,” because seriously who’s going to remember all that? At Lost Continuity that’s all we’re really doing. Writing it down for posterity and really for the betterment of the world at large. Making sure those mashups and crossovers survive. So you’re welcome.
So the next time you and your friends start talking about “who would win in a fight between a watcher from Fringe and Gambit at Aperture Labs?” or “what if Tony Stark was arrested for public drunkenness and hired Harvey Birdman as his attorney?” or even “what if the Doctor was brown?” you let us know. Because in addition to our combined vast ridiculous pop culture knowledge, we’ll always take suggestions. feel free to fire one out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we’ll do what we can. In the meantime, check out Lost Continuity and see what you can expect.
Because it might be something crazy enough for you to enjoy, like a Green Lantern cake. And for those of you who don’t recognize the image, that’s Superboy Prime punching reality. I feel like there’s some meaning there.
