•The future of Hollywood films in 2013: I'm not confident about any of this year's remaining films being cool -- aside from Machete Kills -- but I like the Catching Fire trailers more than I would have expected from the so-so first Hunger Games film, and it looks like it ought to be emphatic enough about the system being evil to allay the fears of critics who saw the first as just an overblown gameshow.
(This one being out same month as Ender’s Game will have to inspire some "Hunger's Game" mashups.)
•The real future of filmmaking (h/t Reid Mihalko).
•The future of figurines (h/t Eric D. Dixon).
•The future of skepticism (h/t Barry X. Kuhle); the final hurdle that my fellow skeptics must overcome is their naive belief that most science is something other than well-polished bullshit.
•And most important, the future as Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force foresaw it back in 2007.
