Why do post-apocalyptic people dress like morons?

One note before I open up this week's mailbag: As last week's "PA" revealed, I am not infallible. I don't know why you would think so, given that I'm a fictional fake postman.

The New Mad Max Game Will Be Vast, Violent and Not Sound Australian

I detected nary an Australian accent from the characters in the new Mad Max game that made its surprise debut at E3 earlier this week. There will be no Australian voices, one of the game's creators told me. OK. At least Max's steering wheel's on the right. What else have they got here? » 6/26/13 11:30am 6/26/13 11:30am

We love a cerebral hero, who thinks five thousand steps ahead and sets careful traps — but there's something to be said for an action hero, who goes on huge car chases, gets into massive fight scenes, and survives by the skin of his or her teeth.

Pop Stars in Science Fiction and Fantasy, Rated on a Scale from David…

This past weekend, Justin Timberlake totally failed to rock our dystopian future in In Time. But the man who brought sexy back is by no means the weakest singer-turned-actor ever to grace science fiction and fantasy — not by any means.
