Okay, back when I joined this Board I complained that, with all the themed calendars out there, no one had thought to produce a Space: 1999 calendar for 1999, or a Deathrace 2000 calendar for 2000. I could understands those, but it was unthinkable that something as iconic as Kubrick and Clarke’s film wouldn’t be used for a 2001: A Space Odyssey wouldn’t be used for a 2001 calendar. I said that they’d better get on the ball for 2010 and put out a 2010: The Year we Make Contact calendar for 2010. After all, they had nine years from that point.
Well, they didn’t do it. I haven’t seen any. Using search engines, I find the title 2010: The Year we Make Contact attached to some porno calendars (!)
Maybe they’re just too embarrassed because, not only haven’t we made contact, we don’t even have a space ship launched to Jupiter. Or even a moonbase.
And, after bypassing all this optimistic SF*, they manage to put out a 2012 calendar based on the current movie, I’m going to be really pissed.
*I mean 2001 and 2010. Don’t give me grief.
