Ray Bradbury: “We’ve got too many Internets.”

“And why is my hand all pointy?”

Ray Bradbury gave another humdinger of an interview to The LA Times, and I say “humdinger” because I’m trying to use slang old enough to match his adorable old man rant.  See, if someone our age said this, they’d be a juggalo.  But when a famous author who turns 90 this Sunday says it, it’s just funny.  Here’s my favorite part of the interview:

“We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many Internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.”  […] “I was approached three times during the last year by Internet companies wanting to put my books” on an electronic reading device, he said. “I said to Yahoo, ‘Prick up your ears and go to hell.'” [HeroComplex]

It’s not the first time he’s told Yahoo and the internets to go to hell, either. Last year he said this:

“Yahoo called me eight weeks ago.  They wanted to put a book of mine on Yahoo! You know what I told them? ‘To hell with you. To hell with you and to hell with the Internet.’  It’s distracting,” he continued. “It’s meaningless; it’s not real. It’s in the air somewhere.” [Blastr]

It’s just there in the air. Pure motherf**king magic right?

Ray Bradbury is such a hot-blooded, sexy beast.  So sexy, in fact, that Rachel Bloom just released a music video called “F*** Me, Ray Bradbury”.  The video is below.  Probably goes without saying that the audio is NSFW.  But, hey, cleavage.  Put it on mute if you need to.
