Hack The Planet
"The pool on the roof must have a leak." Dade Murphy aka Zero Cool
Damn it! Who doesn't love this movie? Can Kate Libby be any cooler? Can Zero Cool be any cuter? The answer is no.
It was the first time I saw it in 1995 that I realized I wanted to move to New York, skate around the city (on roller blades)... and be a Hacker. I knew nothing about computers and had no idea how or what to hack. But it was so what I wanted to do.
I wanted a Hacker boyfriend too. He'd have a really cool laptop and wear cargo pants with lots of pockets to hold disks. I imagined how we'd spend our afternoons exploring the city and planning our electronic crimes and our nights would be spent hacking the Gibson baby. I'd find my own versions of Cereal Killer, Lord Nikon, and Razor and Blade would be my stylists.
It was the perfect plan! What the fuck happend?
