50 years of 2001: A Space Odyssey – how Kubrick's sci-fi 'changed the very form of cinema' | Film | The Guardian
2001: A Space Odyssey affected my life in three different phases: my dad took me to see the film the year it opened at the Ziegfeld theatre in New York. I was a real space buff, partly because dad produced coverage of the space flights for ABC News.

Catapult Classes
"We believe in community and mentorship, in rigorous feedback and revision. We know that an inspiring live event can be just as sustaining as finishing a draft, and that writers need other writers to thrive. Think of Catapult’s writing program as an MFA program without barriers—affordable, day-job-friendly classes open to emerging and established writers.

All of our creative writing classes are taught by writers and publishing professionals at the center of literary culture. Fiction and nonfiction workshop leaders have published at least one book (or have a title under contract) or have amassed bylines in national publications. Editing and publishing classes are led by industry professionals at the height of their careers. Our instructors are not just teachers, but mentors.

Classes meet online and in-person at our NYC offices. All of our six-week workshops are intimate, ranging in size from 5 to 8 writers, and we offer a variety of generative day-long master classes and intensives focused on the practical aspects of the writing life. Long after class is complete, we promote our students' work and celebrate their successes."

Whatever You Do, Don’t.
Scarfolk is a town in North West England that did not progress beyond 1979. Instead, the entire decade of the 1970s loops ad infinitum. Here in Scarfolk, pagan rituals blend seamlessly with science; hauntology is a compulsory subject at school, and everyone must be in bed by 8pm because they are perpetually running a slight fever. “Visit Scarfolk today. Our number one priority is keeping rabies at bay.”

“The Lazy River”
“I heard one man with a fashionable haircut say he could swim the whole length backward. I heard his hipster wife dare him to do it. They had time for such games, having no children. But when he turned and made the attempt he was swept away within the minute.”
