Album Covers Next?

Since we do band names, perhaps we should get into album covers next?
Yikes! I think we'll stick with just the names. (Via Gizmodo)

Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

Android Kirk: In the 1966 episode of Star Trek named "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" Dr. Korby replaces Captain James T. Kirk with an android. The plan is to take over the Enterprise and fill the universe with robots. Kirk is able to alter his replacement's programming to key Spock into the fact something is not quite right. So, in the end Dr. Korby (a robot), Dr. Brown (a robot), Andrea (a beautiful robot who has her programming altered by a kiss from Kirk, naturally), Ruk (an evil robot), and robot Kirk all die in a kind of robot holocaust. There is a question that must be asked here. If Ruk and Korby are able to create robots shouldn't they also be able to make enough robots to manufacture their own starship. In the long term it would have saved a lot of robot's lives.

Dwayne's Computers That Byte

HAL 9000: HAL (Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer) was the computer that ran the spacecraft Discovery One in Arthur C. Clarke's and Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is also the computer that killed off the entire crew of Discovery One save for one David Bowman. When asked about this oversight HAL only had this to say, "Sorry about that, Dave."

Daily Rock Band Name: Your Brain is Plaid

I think I saw Your Brain is Plaid open for the Thompson Twins.

Friday Iguana

Here is a excellent example of Iguana-ness.  This is from a site called X-Ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology.  It contains an interesting abstract about Iguana breathing.

Around the Campfire Comment of the Day

As you may know, I run another blog called Around the Campfire. It has been around a while, so it regularly gets comment spam. This comment was posted on a story about a guy who has amnesia and thinks robots have taken over the world.

Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

Dot Matrix: Dot is the Droid of Honor belonging to Princess Vespa in Mel Brooks 1987 Star Wars parody Spaceballs. Dot's main mission is to make sure that Vespa's "honor" remains intact. There was a rumor that she was dating C3PO, however it was soon found to be false when the paparazzi found 3PO in a hot tub romance with Johnny 5.

Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

Good Robots Bill and Ted (aka Good Robot uses): Again in Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey. However, this time Bill and Ted are able to get some advice from God on how to defeat their evil robot replacements. They are sent to an alien called Station. Station is able to create the Good Robots Bill and Ted from common supplies found in your local big box hardware store. Although they do not look as good as their evil adversaries they are good back-up dancers. Good that is if they only dance they are asked to do is the "Robot".
