A Max Headroom centric update

Phew! I survived another week! Sorry for the lack of update yesterday, I was super busy all freakin' day..and by the time I finally got home at night I was just exhausted. Today's been a day of errands: flu shot, banking, laundry, trips to the big box stores and goings on. Busy! So I'm keeping this update short and sweet, I'm going to take a shower and then I might sit down and watch some of my Max Headroom DVDs. Then time for more errands then back to my little side job with Verizon Wireless tomorrow. Yay for more bucks, boo for always being tired.

And a thought occurs to me: Max Headroom was Matt Frewer in a bunch of latex and other makeup, but it was portrayed as CGI. We actually have the CGI now to do a "real" Max Headroom...so why hasn't someone? They could get Matt Frewer to do the voice and to model the CGI after, and there ya go. With as cyberpunk as the show was (and if ya don't remember, go watch it again. It's sooo cyberpunk, the stuff in the background is as interesting as most other shows) it'd be a bigger hit now than it was back in the 80s. I'd watch it.
