That Echoing Roar You Hear In The Distance Is Some Kind Of Future Getting One Step Closer

July 13th, 2007 | about warren ellis/contact

Every week — and I mean, every single week — something happens on the face of this planet that I could not reasonably have predicted. Every single week, the planet does not disappoint.

Cervical piercing.

Even more interestingly: the piercee in question is FTM, and the piercing, a personal symbol of the ownership and control he has over his body, has been placed prior to a planned radical hysterectomy.

  1. These people need a new hobby.

  2. Nope – they need microcomputers to put in their piercings so we can start pushing the boundaries of the meat/machine interface (figuring out ways around rejection/infection would be a good start).

  3. Quick hits….

    I’m dealing with a work backlog and an unfortunate flea situation that developed while I was at the beach, so I’m still getting back to this slowly. In the meantime… My father’s Harper’s Index. Scientists report the first conclusive discovery……

  4. How strange it has been to see myself talked about on so many sites these last few days!

    For the record, a hysterectomy of any sort has not been planned. I briefly considered and wrote about the possibility on my journal, but its not something I will actually do, at least not in the forseeable future.

    Paul, who commented above- totally agree, please forward appropriate microcomputers to my work address shown on the modblog website. Settings should include 10 speeds of vibration, wireless internet and an alarm clock that vibrates and plays something by marylin manson at 9am monday to saturday. Send them out first class wont you, then I should get them monday.. you’re a star! xx

  5. Sort of steel bump warning for those dangerously endowed.

    And I expect someone with some piercing or stud on his/her living, beating heart soon. And we’ll all read about it here.

  6. It’s not the little things along the way that bother me but you know EVERYONE KNOWS what this is going to lead to.

    Killer. Fucking. Robots.

    And they don’t feel pain! Or emotions! Hell, Dick Cheney is already a cyborg.

    Tommy Thompson wants to put RFID chips in prisoners and cattle.

    MOOOOOOOOOO.

  7. Now that I think about it, Warren Ellis doesn’t feel pain or emotions.

  8. The strains of Marilyn Manson coming from a vagina would be a truly fascinating thing.

    Perhaps you could also stick in some recordings of crashing waves and seagulls, then tell people that if you put your ear to it you’ll hear the ocean.

  9. Sometimes, the internest is a surprisingly small place.

  10. I’m gonna get my liver tattooed with the JD logo. If anyone wants to see it I’ll show them my f*ck ugly scar and a poloroid.

  11. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!
