No Selfies In Sci-Fi

No Selfies In Sci-Fi

In this episode, Kam Raslan welcomes PUSAKA's Pauline Fan, and techmeister Matt Armitage to complete our lineup of multicultural commentators. Kam starts off with his thoughts on his research on his family lineage. While the findings may be fascinating, he wonders if knowing it serves any great purpose afterall. Pauline continues with her observation on writing non-fiction; her recent foray into short stories has presented her with an interesting vantage point in her creative process. Matt then transports the trio to a galaxy far, far away with his thoughts on selfies in sci-fi movies. He realizes there seems to be little-to-no narcissism shown in futuristic movies, overlooking the natural inclination for vanity in modern day smartphone users. It's a classic Matt Armitage type brainwave - got us really thinking, that one.
