hummingwolf: Mathemagical animation made out of string. (Incredible String Thing)
Welcome to Big-Time Television: All day and every day making tomorrow seem like yesterday.

Now, remember when we said there was no future? Well, this is it.

Right! Next up, more of the same.

--Blank Reg, in the Max Headroom episode "Body Banks"

Everyone has a time machine. Everyone is a time machine. It's just that most people's machines are broken. The strangest and hardest kind of time travel is the unaided kind. People get stuck, people get looped. People get trapped. But we are all time machines. We are all perfectly engineered time machines, technologically equipped to allow the inside user, the traveler riding inside each of us, to experience time travel, and loss, and understanding. We are universal time machines manufactured to the most exacting specifications possible. Every single one of us.

--from Charles Yu's novel How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

I wish that I could be an outlaw
Riding from the laws of time
An old vigilante against the seasons
That I can't help but rewind
I'd always keep my revolver
Steady and fast at my side
And I'd rob a train bound for glory
If I thought I needed a ride

--from Jeff Black's song "Same Old River"
