Humor and Horror?


Sometimes they go together, as in satire. The good thing about the imagination is that it can connect things that otherwise seem unconnected. In our Filter Bubble culture on the internet that is sometimes difficult to see, since we are tracked and analyzed, then fed back more of the same things we clicked on previously. (Read The Filter Bubble and Future Crimes.) For a look of what it was like to have a father with a very active imagination, doing things on television no one had tried before, read the memoir of Anne Serling, whose father Rod Serling developed The Twilight Zone, a groundbreaking series that riveted viewers first in black and white, then in color. My interview with Anne is HERE.
