Apparently it's been around awhile. Listen to the Echoes says Rodenberry came up with it.

Well, it's certainly been around since STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, and was first used in an episode made while Roddenberry was still involved with production:

My baby is taking some of her non-core classes in a summer session at University, in Arizona. She is taking English 102 (whatever the heck that is). The first short story assignment was to read is "The Veldt" and then write a paper on dystopian society.

Sometimes I wonder if "The Veldt" is not such a good educational introduction to Bradbury. Reason being, when I encounter people and share my enthusiasm for his writing, this is often the story they mention, and they say something like, "Didn't he write...oh yeah, I had to read that in school." And the conversation will turn to something else.

Spotted this earlier. The Body Electric 'Raybot', a tribute to Ray Bradbury. Better than Crypt Keeper, huh?

Matriculate is a good word.

I think that would be true whichever story it was. We seem to have a reflex against anything we are forced to read in school. For me, it's Kipling, E.Bronte and Dickens! (Although, for me, it doesn't hold true for Shakespeare, which interests me slightly... nor for Bradbury, who I first encountered in a school class, with THE GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN.)

In this case my baby was delighted to be reading a story by an author she had met and broken bread with. (she is going to figure out how to weave that into her paper) Jasmine also learned a new word, dystopian.

You were mighty lucky. For me, it was Ellis (Less Than Zero), but not Vonnegut and Bradbury.

This Debussy piece played as I was driving home last night through our rural region. I could not help but think of Dandelion Wine, the boys (Doug, Tom, John Huff, et al) running in Green Town fields of magnificent summer sunlight - and then suddenly into an approaching dusk. I imagined all of their dreams, loves, and fears scurrying about them not quite able, or ready, to settle into their realities.

A real Bradbury presence was in the tone of the music, entitled Danses Sacrée et Profane

You think!?

Yes, great to listen to after my overnight work. The piece does lend itself to the imagery you suggest. I'm hopeful that when the DANDELION WINE movie is finally made the score will be just wonderful. Maybe somewhat like the orchestrations by the late Jerry Goldsmith. I liked his music for THE ILLUSTRATED MAN (esp. the opening piece) and his incidental music for episodes of The Waltons tv show.

Be well today, friends. Thank you Ray Bradbury, much love to you!
