"Watch Her Takes Pleasures from the Serpent..."

The title is a quote from Blade Runner. These robots are closer to the original Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep with its obsession with real and android animals.

Anyhoo...I haven't posted a good robot video for a while now, so I give you two.

My favorite part is when the "snake" crawls up the guy's trouser leg.

This is a different film of the "Robot Donkey" in a previous post. Again with the robot animal abuse!

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut...

So, there is a guy at my work who is the local crack dealer...well, actually he just always has candy in a drawer for anyone. This has led me to have numerous snack-cidents. My new favorite is my old favorite--Almond Joy. I hadn't eaten one since probably 1978. They are still as yummy as ever.

BARTing up a Hairball

I was riding BART the other day and saw this little creature sneaking up on a sleeping rider. It made me think of a susuwatari (traveling soot)from Spirited Away. So instead of thinking that this was a really gross example of human detritus, I thought of it as riding home after a long day of hauling coal for Kamaji. BART on, little susuwatari!
