Pretty much what goes on in my head while I’m running.

Crash

It’s a bit puzzling how thoroughly world-shaking something as simple as losing the use of a bicycle can be for me; I’m not a materialist, so why do I feel so upset over a two-wheeled thing? I mean, granted, its not a cheap two-wheeled thing, but that shouldn’t be the defining value of it. I have other concerns that are truthfully more pertinent right now- like the fact that I’m waiting to finish my thesis, or that I have no idea what my job prospects will be going forward, or that I’m going to be upheaved in the next 6-8 months and relocating to another country that I’ve never even stepped foot in because of the person I love. Yet truthfully, none of these things seem to scare me as much as the thought that I can’t hop on my bike this very instant and speed off. How very strange.

On last night’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart revealed that if you mix Mitch McConnell’s weird wordless campaign ad with any song, you get pure, uncut magic.

It’s called McConnelling, and it’s sweeping the nation. Make your own!

it works really well with Enya’s “Only Time”.

My childhood fascination with robots is coming full-circle. I always wanted robot friends as a child. I think my notions of the cartoons I watched as a kid were always different, because my media intake bounced between the likes of Transformers and Voltron to Sesame Street and Reading Rainbow. Two very diametrically opposed messages and I think those messages blurred- why couldn’t the Autobots and Decepticons get over their disputes?
I had one idea, possibly stretched too thin for its own good, when viewing Pacific Rim over the summer and even now, for thesis ideas, but I keep finding myself returning more to the atmosphere of The Iron Giant- a sentient machine designed for potentially sinister ends, but who lives in a sense of wonderment of the world around him, not dissimilar to Lenny from Of Mice and Men. In other words- a robot I would want to be friends with.
So now I’m looking at a project I found in an article, called “genetic robots”, which was meant to teach children the science (in simple terms) of hereditary traits via art, but I also think there’s room for understanding that what makes the human form seem “incomplete” or “disabled” in a robot is in fact ideal or appropriate.
