RIP Ray Bradbury

Such an amazing author and visionary mind. I read the Illustrated man first when I was 12 and fell in love with him, it didn’t help my outdoor life a bit that he also was doing the Ray Bradbury Theatre, I was stuck… Shame to see him go but he will live on in his books and in my mind.

“I’m not a science fiction writer,” he was frequently quoted as saying. “I’ve written only one book of science fiction [“Fahrenheit 451”]. All the others are fantasy. Fantasies are things that can’t happen, and science fiction is about things that can happen.”

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – Ray Bradbury

I can recommend Vondur’s youtube channel for quite a lot of episodes from the TV-series.

Fuck me, Ray Bradbury

I do like this video, always good to see sci-fi love for one of the greatest authors but he has disappointed me in the latest day with his rant “We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many Internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.”  Ehh, what a…

Bradbury wrote darkly about bookburning in "Fahrenheit 451," but he sounds ready to use a Kindle for kindling. “I was approached three times during the last year by Internet companies wanting to put my books" on an electronic reading device, he said. "I said to Yahoo, ‘Prick up your ears and go to hell.’ " I just couldn’t belive it, I’m not a big fan of E-readers either, want my paper books but still anything to get people to read is great so his response is kinda out there.

Still enjoy the video won’t ya.
