Happy Roy Batty Incept Date!

by John Holbo on January 8, 2016

Life has been keeping me too busy. I’ll be back soon. But don’t forget! Tonight is the night Roy comes, to give toys to good girls and boys. Happy Incept Date!

He’ll see things you people won’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He’ll watch C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears . . . in . . . rain.

He’ll do…questionable things.

Man and I thought I was a geek. Nosiree I do not even begin to qualify.

Ah, well. I’m probably too fat to join the off-world colonies anyways.

Once again I petition for a CT ‘Like’ button. Or one of those little Twitter hearts.

What kent and Neville said. But in an attempt to score at least some geek points let me point out that IIRC Hauer actually says “Tannhauser”.

I love the term ‘incept date’. It’s a term created by someone with a great love and facility with the English language.

Time … to live.

Good thing it wasn’t “inception date”, with a huge Hans Zimmer *whong* every time someone says it.

I’m going to celebrate by taking a walk in the desert, looking for a tortoise lying on its back.


AcademicLurker 01.09.16 at 5:25 pm

What desert?


ScrewyCanuck 01.09.16 at 7:55 pm

What’s a ‘tortoise’?

My brilliant wife writes:

Phoo, either the Telegraph or the movie got the spelling of Roy Baty’s name
wrong! PKD was too subtle to name a character “Batty”. I don’t think I’ve
ever actually watched Blade Runner. I was afraid of what Hollywood would do
to PKD. But I think about him all the time as the number of advertising
venues keeps mushrooming, like now you get little TV screens in your taxi,
the elevator, the exercise machines etc. We don’t yet have mini-drones
buzzing up like insects but stay tuned!
