This is a few years old, but worth digging up. Beautiful machinery. Great, great, great.

This is all too much for me.

I don’t like how this robot says it loves people, I don’t like how it yearns and I certainly don’t like how it uses phrases like “conspire to take over the world” in casual conversation.

Ludicrous as it seems, that’s the goal of Google Street View.  And in it’s artless way, it somewhat does capture the human experience.  Don’t believe me? Look at some of these guys. The accompanying article has a bunch of good ideas, but it also has an excessive amount of bullshit.  Take it for what it is, and enjoy it.

P.S. I’m cooking up a mixtape.   I got new ingredients, so it’ll sound nothing like the last two.  Stay tuned.
