Three things I love about living in the future and five things I hate about living in the future by Les Bohem

I love the easy access to everything I ever wanted to know, to hear, to see.

I hate that everything is so accessible and nothing is special.

I love that there is more good music than there has ever been.

I hate that there is so much music that I will never be able to find the good stuff.

I love the coffee.

I hate the architecture.

I hate that it’s so fast and loud and crass and dumb and fucked up.

I hate that I won’t get to stick around to watch it get faster and louder and so on.


I don’t think Jesus cares enough about this one to bother to weep.

Les Bohem has written a lot of movies and TV shows including Twenty Bucks, Daylight, Dante’s Peak, The Alamo and the mini-series, Taken which he wrote and executive produced with Steven Spielberg, and for which he won an Emmy award.   He’s had songs recorded by Emmylou Harris, Randy Travis, Freddy Fender, Steve Gillette, Johnette Napolitano (of Concrete Blonde), and Alvin (of the Chipmunks.)  His short novel, Flight 505, was published last year by UpperRubberBoot .   His new album, “Moved to Duarte,” was just released on Jack Rabbit Day Records to much critical acclaim and no sales whatsoever.
