Watching the trailer for Synchronicity was an experience. Visually and aurally, it harkened back to Blade Runner in all the right ways. It has a heavy feeling of science fiction noir, complete even with a purported Femme Fatale. The voice over promised an interesting story about time travel in a cyber-noir setting and the inclusion […]

Irving Force is a retrowave 80s style synth band whose music calls to memory action scenes from 80s action flicks, many of which were heavily cyberpunk in nature.

Punk kids are going around town plastering every naked wall with posters of Geronimo, even making use of the pipe system used to deliver scripts to Luis Ortega, our pirate broadcaster who’s been shutdown by the DHS, to hasten delivery.

I, however, am not a journalist with a recognized media organization nor am I (technically) affiliated […]
