There's  rather a lot of energy and ideas buzzing around in my brain and if I don't let out into the world my head will explode.

 

You may have the same problem sometimes.

 

Go ahead and experience this place it at any level you like. There's some tidy little mind-snacks, some more substantial idea-sandwiches, and you can even dive deep into vast pots of existential pudding.

September
January

1866. H.G. Wells' birthday.

One of the most important creators in the history of science fiction, and one of the most read authors of the 20th Century. 

He also had a sex-life that was more action-packed and bizarre than a lot of his SF. 

In some ways, a hero of mine but a controversial fellow.

1983. Flag Day.

 

ARPANET changes to TCP/IP protocols which creates the Internet (well, sort of).

Kind of a big deal

A year and a month or so later, I'm discovering electronic bulletin boards with the Tandy Model 100 that the Royal Ontario Museum lets me use at home on the weekends.  A big deal to me but maybe not the rest of the world:

August

1968. Mars Needs Women

Release of this startling original interplanetary love story which asks the eternal question: Can a human teenage girl find happiness with a rubber skullcap- wearing alien boy?

Strangely over-shadowed by Kubick's 2001 which was released during the same year:

May

1851. First Dinosaur Sculptures.

Open at the Great Exhibition in Kensington, London and move to Crystal Palace Park after the event closes. 

The "Monsters" are as much an expression of the Victorian imagination as they are of paleontological research but they are still supremely cool!

And if you happen to be in London, you can go and see them today:
