I just read on Twitter and Tumblr that the Looper trailer is going to be shown at WonderCon.

I HAVE A LOT OF FEELS ABOUT THIS.

I can't wait to see it.

No, I mean I can't wait. Like really, cannot. Will need a TARDIS specifically for this.

Yeah, pshshst, get it out of the shop, send it back in time to me and then just lemme hop across here...

Oh hell, and while I'm at it, why not pop over to September and get to CA! And dig it: it'll fit all of us, too.

Our problems are solved.

Rian Johnson & Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the Looper panel also talk about time travel and time travel movies including Primer and BTTF

^ I love that whole conversation! Okay, it's probably pretty obvious right about now that time travel is my jam. (That's what my novel is about, in fact.) So I really have ALL OF THE EXCITEMENTS over Looper and I want to sit around and talk time travel with Rian for hours.

Like, okay, what I think is that you could maybe run into yourself in the multiverse, but you might not even recognize your"self" because different choices (which would create different pasts/futures) would create a different you, possibly even from different parents in a different part of the world.

Which opens up the question as to what makes you YOU and not someone else. What keeps your consciousness inside that particular incarnation and creates the experience of self?

Or maybe you run into a you that is like you in almost ever respect, except for the smallest detail. What prevents your consciousness from bleeding over into theirs?

And the biggest question of all: Would you make out with yourself?
:lol:

At a rehearsal for a benefit concert some friends and I did last month, my friend Patrick brought up the idea of having sex with yourself (whether a clone or via time travel or whatever). My brother and I were both pretty decisively on the "Um no, that's fucking weird" side, whereas Patrick and our other bandmate James were totally "Hell yeah!"

Still not sure how I feel about knowing that.

If biologically we are not sharing the same parents, I am not sure how can we make the connection that they are our other self. It is a total different individual even on a genetic level, irrespective of the choices they made in their life.

As for making out with yourself, can you be attracted to yourself?

Back on topic, any idea why they are waiting for few more weeks to release the trailer online? Most other trailer/footage shown at WonderCon has been released online.

Also anybody who has seen the trailer, can they confirm what was the music? Existing material or score from Nathan?

Yeah, I totally would not have sex or make out with myself. I'm a snob that way.

Right, and the only book that I've ever read that explored this was The Education of Oversoul Seven. It was the idea that there are different incarnations of "you" with different consciousnesses that overlap--sometimes via time travel and sometimes through the "oversoul." I read that book when I was nine, and then again when I was 35 or so and it has always stuck with me, the idea that there could be a "me" in prehistoric times and a "me" from the future when we live in space, and a "me" who's a renaissance painter etc.

Well, I can't. :) But, getting back to Looper, why do I foresee a Young Joe/Old Joe fandom sprouting up? O_O

(Because that's what fandoms DO. :lol: )

LOLNO.
