To give some context: I'm lecturing tomorrow in the American studies course I gave up teaching in order to take my new job. The topic is World's Fairs, specifically the 1893 Columbian Exposition, the 1939 fair in New York, and the unofficial "World's Fair" of 1964, also in New York.
I don't wanna read anything else. Wah!
I don't wanna write anything else! Meh!
If I see the word "trylon" one more time, I'm going to hurl.
On the other hand, there is this:
If you had to pick, which of these would you say best represents the World's Fair of today?
- Falconcity of WONDERS!
- Disneyworld/Epcot Center
- MacWorld and similar tech tradeshows crawling with venture capitalists and consumers
And don't say "Falconcity of Wonders!" just because you want to live in the Dubai Hanging Gardens of Babylon. (BTW, I call dibs on the 6,500 sq. ft. detached villa in the hideous "New World" style.)
P.S. Did I mention I don't wanna work right now?
P.P.S. I am sooooo happy with my decision to give up teaching for the time being. Playing blocks with Lucas is far more fun. And more important.
