The Future Is

The Future Is

Let's Ride into a Psychedelic Hell two hundred years from now. Hang out with your favourite dead legend. Spend your entire life addicted to hyperreal home entertainment. Never talk to anyone real. No friends, no family. So what. A life spent tripping on smart acid means that nobody really cares any more. But a revolution is coming. And They will save humanity from an extinction of the mundane. This world without childhoods; post nuclear London Town underground, 23rd Century VoQue ephemera obsession. Don't talk to real people, Alexandra Brontay. Don't go looking for love. But Lexie does, Lexie still believes in real. Brontay's split soul is about to become the lynchpin of the coming war fought by nano-machines within synthetic biological systems, the mainframe of power within a real world that is indistinguishable from artificial intelligence and the hyperreal. But when MannyCapra, CEO of The Company, needs a spot of agitprop to stem his boredom, he'll go to any length to entertain those who plot against him. After 250 years on this earth, he is so ready for a bit of fun.... Show More

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
