Country Joe McDonald – Living In The Future In A Plastic Dome

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION. I do not own this song. Living In The Future In A Plastic Dome performed by Country Joe McDonald and recorded live at The Bitter End, New York. “I have this sort of plot for a science-fiction book which I haven’t written yet, which is that things get so bad and polluted that uh everyone moves in the geodesic domes and inside the domes it’s really nice, you know. And this is a little song about how… how wonderful it’s gonna be living inside these big domes, y’know.” They’ve covered the city with a plastic dome So the air inside could be clean, And it’s really fine in our new home We have everything we need. There are no planes, no buses or trains And if you wanna go somewhere, Just think about where you’d like to be at And before you know it you’re there. Living in the future in a plastic dome Sounds mighty strange I agree, But now I call it home sweet home That’s where I long to be, yeah, Living in the future in a plastic dome Sounds mighty strange I agree, But now I call it home sweet home That’s where I long to be. Now if you’re hungry for food or drink Just go to the teller machine; You place your order and you just have to think And look at the video screen. But if you’re lonesome and you think you would Like to have a friendly chat, Just talk to the teller machine And the teller machine will talk back. Hey, living in the future in a plastic dome Sounds mighty strange I agree, But now I call it home sweet home That’s where I long to be

  1. Hi Susan I’m curious, have you heard aninhytg further about these folks? It looks to be shaping up to be a good market (for readers and writers) but solid information has been hard to come by. (I submitted a short piece anyway why not?)

  2. Hi,Janie! I just came back from a 6-day Western Writers of America convention in Bismarck, ND and what I drseoveicd is: nonfiction is in bigger demand than fiction.You have to remember most of these folks are historians and that is what they mostly read: history (preferably nonfiction). I asked about narrative nonfiction, or creative nonfiction (take your pick of terms) and most of them are agin it. I did find a favorable editor from the University of Nebraska Press who wants to see a nonfiction book I wrote four years ago, without finding an agent or publisher. If he likes it, well I’ll let you know.
