Retrofuturist media based on what folks in the 1930s or the 1950s thought the year 2000 would look like is fun, but you know what I’d like to see a major media franchise take a shot at? Retrofuturism based on what people in the 1890s thought the year 2000 would look like.

The Enneads have to fight Apep, the arch-enemy of the sun god, Ra, a malevolent force who could never be entirely be vanquished. Apep has his own powerful cult, The Iconoclasts, and villains who are also from all over the globe and different walks of life (and time).
They travel the world on a Zeppelin called Mandjet! I just loved the idea of mythology being recontextualized!

This is the Elion-Hitchings Building. It’s futuristic look had it appearing in science fiction films and TV, most notably Brainstorm, Natalie Wood’s last film. It was built in 1972. Sadly (and perhaps predictably) it was just demolished after being abandoned for years. Interesting looking but the shapes were a terrible use of space, making a significant percentage of the interior square footage unusable.

This is what new-age houses looked like in the 70s. Texture was a big component, from shag carpets to polished wood.
