I came across this excellent site today, starring a series of very funny robots in a collection of animations by Brian Frisk. It’s called We Are Robots and you’ve gotta check it out – they are awesome! In particular, the Geek Robot is a classic 🙂
If you haven’t seen it, you should see the 1996 movie, Swingers – it’s excellent! This is one of my favourite scenes (part of it), which I just had to transcribe because it’s so good 🙂
Mike: “Look, we’re gonna spend half the night driving around the hills looking for this one party, and you’re gonna say it sucks, then we’re gonna go look for this other party. But all the parties, and all the bars, they all suck; I spend half the night talking to some girl who’s looking around the room to see if there’s somebody else that’s more important she should be talkin to, and I’m supposed to be all happy because she’s wearing a backpack. You know and half of them are just nasty skanks, who wouldn’t be nothin except that they’re surrounded by a bunch of drunken horny assholes. And I’m gonna tell you something T, are you listening?”
Trent: “Yeah I’m listening”
Mike: “I’m not gonna be one of those assholes, alright? It just makes me sick; it’s like ah, it’s like, some nasty skank who isn’t half the woman my girlfriend is is gonna front me? It makes me wanna fuckin’ puke!”
Assignment 3, in quick succession from Assignment 2!. This one is an annotated bibliography of 20+ resources relating to virtual reality and its effects on our perception of cyberspace. I am now working on the essay for the same topic, which will be based on these resources. I did quite well from this assignment, so looks like I had roughly the amount of depth that was required, so that’s a good thing.
