Favoriting June 30, 2021: Hi-Waisted Modernists #131 - Cocoon


Thanks to the fabulous MHLee, who sent me a copy of Greg Egan's "Cocoon" a dark and cautionary short story about gender eugenics, on today's Hi-Waisted Modernists with DJ GeorgyGirl, The Blue Haired Hippie, I'll be reading this over some suitably futuristic 80s library music from Bruton, De Wolfe, Parry, Editions Montparnasse, and Omnimusic.

3 pm to 4 pm EST/8 pm to 9 pm GMT

@MHLee - Do they mean Sydney as in Australia? That's what I was wondering

Paper Kosmonaut:

GG, Is it all right if I just listen to the sound of your voice and ignore the story? it's going too fast for me without having to fully concentrate...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - I totally understand :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm
MHLee:

I work in genetics and evolution so it's particularly interesting on that side
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm
MHLee:

I'm not sure i'm a workaholic biotechnologist though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - I always find stories like this particularly chilling. That element of "this could actually happen".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm
MHLee:

Absolutely. And think this is 1994... this is before the human genome project by a decade
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm
MHLee:

predicted ipads too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm
Paper Kosmonaut:

It could happen. Just like Fahrenheit 451. Or 1984. Luckily that didn't happen. Yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm
MHLee:

I really wonder if egan has a background in biotech because it's impressive
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - I watched a fabulous interview with Margaret Atwood where she said that every story she writes has a strong element of truth in it. Not science "fiction" but science "this is happening somewhere in the world right now".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - True. Dangerously close tho :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - The detail is *astounding*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm
MHLee:

Near Future/Contempary Scifi is a fascinating subgenre
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - It's also why I love urban horror so much. It has that element of Real about it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm
MHLee:

@GG I love this show btw. It's a lot to get through but I will likely relisten
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - Oh! I'm so glad you like what I've done with it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm
MHLee:

I need some new recs... I just finished my The King is Dead (horror stories (mostly) featuring dead Elvis) I have ribofunk (biological cyberpunk) but after that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - My daughter has a modern horror book that's set in an Ikea style store. i shall have to ask her what it's called for you :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm
Paper Kosmonaut:

@MHLee 3:24: absolutely. SF which happens in 'our' era is much more believable. Things like Sturgeon's 'More than Human', for example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm
MHLee:

That's great. I loved themed comps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - It's set out like an Ikea catalogue with illustrations :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm
MHLee:

@PK I haven't read that one yet, but have read quite a few Sturgeon stories in Asimov's collections
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm

I need to tackle Le Guinn at some point too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - It's years since I read LeGuin!

Paper Kosmonaut:

@ GG 3:27: Me and my girlfriend made up a story once about a furniture store which is like a purgatory you wake up in and never can escape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - You might want to have a word with the author of the book I just posted then! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm
MHLee:

@PK sounds like a SCP... i don't know if your young enough to be familiar with the concept
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm
MHLee:

New Weird has taken a few influences from it... and a lot from Lynch
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm
Paper Kosmonaut:

Oh yeah I am. Great and horrible stories.

@GG 3:30 - our story seems a little different. But that book cover looks awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm

@MHLee - I've got some suitable kiddie library music to go along with it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - The illustrations are brilliant :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm
MHLee:

At some point I might go through this archive and see if I can put together a reading list
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - A great idea! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm
Paper Kosmonaut:

@ MHLee: I recently saw a half hour computer-made horror fake- documentary about how Thomas the Tank engine was an experiment of a nazi-german scientist that turned his son into a train and later other people too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm
MHLee:

@GG I had the Thomas the Tank engine stories book... it's a hundreds of pages long and some are written in nearly unfathomable dialect for some from appalachia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm

@PK - That sounds amazing! Do you have a link?
