There's going to be some changes around here

Tuesday, December 29, 2009
Recently I've been feeling like my blog lacks certain... direction, if you will. I am going to try to implement a new category system, which will hopefully keep me updating on a regular basis and supply some consistency around here.

Here's what I'm thinking: I'll have a category for each day of the week (listed below) and weekends will be for updates and pictures on whatever it is I do on weekends.

Categories are tentative and will be subject to change as I develop them. :)

Music/Movie Mondays
Terrifying Tuesdays
Wonderful Wednesdays
Thoughtful Thursdays
Fashion Fridays

Out of 14 followers one of you has to read this semi-regularly. I'm counting on a little feedback here, kapeesh?

Now, seeing as how it is a Terrifying Tuesday, check out this mess.

Japan is apparently offering to create robotic dopplegangers to be sold at a department stores for 139,000 Euros. The robots are an exact silicone replica of the recipient with speech based on recordings of that person's voice. So far there are only two on sale and they don't walk (yet).
How can no one see this is a terrible idea?! This is how movies that end in the destruction of the human race begin. Just because you can Japan, doesn't mean you should!

I've been saying we need to do something about Japan for years now. Two years actually. I wrote a blog post about it in 2007 prophesying a grim future where my family was hunted down by the Honda bot and I murdered them so the robot wouldn't be able to. It ended with:"I will shed a tear for each of them and as Honda Bots Godless claws wrap around my face I say a prayer for the human race. So to stop that from happening we must kill Japan. With Knives."

I still stand by my words.

The new format sounds like fun.
