    Default Season 59 addendum poll on Time

    Season 59 is about time. Let's say you have your uke and extra strings and you can do one of three things, which would it be?

    1. Get in Mr. Peabody's Way-Back Machine to go backward to any era you choose. Tell what it would be.

    2. Get in H.G. Wells' Time Machine and go forward to anytime you choose. Tell what it would be.

    3. Go sideways through Madeleine L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time, and let's say that you have three days there that will have no effect on the rest of your life. Tell us what you'd do...if you wish.

    Forward for me (as polled above) the past is prologue. Besides, I want to hear some new albums by my favorite musicians who are still recording. I'd binge watch the rest of Game of Thrones and Person of Interest, but most of all, I'd go to visit my kids and grandkids and see how they're doing. I'd like to go far enough to see some of the things I won't be around to see otherwise.
    It's the songs, isn't it?

    I'd want to go WAY far ahead in time... Say 5000 years to the year 7013. The further forward one goes, the more different it would be, and I'm always one to enjoy different things.

    Is there an alternate time book for people who have read none of the above?

    Mr. Peabody was a cartoon character: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_Peabody

    The Time Machine was a pretty important 19th-century novel (made into a weird movie with Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux as one of the Eloi he falls in love with. Sorry, no CGI.)

    Wrinkle in Time is a young adult novel.

    Forward in time - a long time after I have died as I am curious to see how things work out.

    Only speaking for me, Miriam, I would chose:
    1. Time of Plato: I would like to tell him his censorship of music - and some other things he said - are not such "good ideas".
    2. 2022: Celebration of the 10th anniversary of the season: Hey, we became older, but better players!
    3. One day: Behaving really wild on stage /at a gig (I'm a bit shy); One day: Feeling pain and agony (for enjoying life even more afterwards, ok, maybe just half a day); one day: telling off the boss (quite ordinary, ok, I know..)

    I chose the way back machine. In spite of making my living in tech, I've always felt that I was born about 100 years too late...

    At the very least I'd go back far enough to stop my dad from selling back in the 30's or 40's that decent chunk of desolate, undeveloped beach front property south of LA...

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    RE: Dear Austin 1's query, may I suggest another wonderful time travel flick likely to be streamable?

    The Richard Matheson book of the same name is held in high regardyness by some, too.
    It's the songs, isn't it?
