Just in case you missed it.

I’m taking a chance here, and assuming all readers are here because of the mind control thing, and related happenings? Seriously, if you arent, how did you find this place? Alright, by Google searches judging by the stats I get from here lol!

One artist I love, and who (at the right point in time) I’d love to have the looks of, is Doris Day. Seemingly I’ve never fitted any of her songs on here, though I’ve certainly slipped a couple into my other blog, thats for sure. So whats given me the chance to put that right, or more correctly, who has given me the chance to put that right. Why, none other than Heather, and her wonderful story this week!

Its well written, utterly hilarious from start to finish, and deserves to be read by many. And judging by reviews so far, its not just me that thinks so. For those few of you not already in contact with the archive, here’s your chance.

And yes, for those of you who come here through google links for Breast growth and Bimbos, go read it too. I know you do, but you’re safe, I dont know just who you are, lol! 😉

I know, some of you will already have found it, and commented on it, but hey, I have to hedge my bets. Talking of humourous stories, I’ll give it a try as from next week too, be warned though, it is different subject matter. But for those who love Domme’s with a sense of humour… 😉

Ah, the excuse to include a Doris Day song. This might be more the original look of Bambee, but probably not.  But the thought of Calamity Jane came into my head while reading the story, so I can see a connection at least. And cracking whips might apply to my story at some point, though not as yet!

A New Me

No, dont worry, nothing dramatic, but I hope by now that a few have noticed the new name at the Garden. Its fun, and probably works better for me nowadays than the old one in all honesty.

Today, that new me took her first chance to do some writing of her own. There are some (including myself) that would suspect the previous one was, but that was argumental, the method was technological, and it was male dominant, both classical RU8 traits, even if the storyline was clearly something very new, and for obvious reasons, might have had a Brooks factor to it.

What I’ve done today though is to write an fd story that is clearly Ms Merry Brooks, and not RU8 in the slightest. And yes, it was fun to do. Yes, it was inspired by MCGuy, and his antics over at the Garden the last couple of days, but Merry loved writing every word of it, to be honest. I hope someone doesnt mind too much, all the same, as it might be fun posting that to the Archive. I might even get to write more fd stuff if its well received, something I never thought I’d do. Just proves you can teach an old dog, new tricks lol!

My inclination is to post it in my new name, and see what reaction it gets that way. There are a couple of reasons for that in all honesty. Its nothing like an RU8 story in its nature, even if I am a bit more femme domme naturally nowadays than I used to be. The other (though maybe thats negated by Garden knowledge of the author) is to see what reaction a new writer gets on the reviews, its been a long time since that happened for me.

Lets see, the story is set in Cherryvale, Kansas, so lets relate the video to a famous citizen of that town. Now, who could that be…whistles innocently…oh, I know!

Silver Lady

My thanks actually go to Dave here at home, who indirectly suggested the title of this blog.

Its funny, it used to be a case that when I went shopping, I kept an eye open for silver items of clothing, no prizes for working out why! Alright, as I proved today, I still do. But, and heres the interesting point, my first instinct wasnt robot, though that thought did come to mind, it was that it would work as a 20’s flapper type top/short skirt (just about knee length I guess). So alright, I could have gone for the similar one in black, but hey, old habits die hard lol!

The good news with this, as opposed to the last 20’s style item I bought, its machine washable, yay! I also bought a new handbag, or more strictly a shoulder bag in green. Hasnt got an outside pocket (generally a must with me, for train pass etc), but otherwise, perfect. Got a little blue purse/card holder thing, to help with finding it in the bag though. How much for all 3, just £11! Top/skirt was massively reduced, the others less so, but still cheaper than they should have been. I know, the recession isnt good for everyone, but give me the chance of an appealing bargain, and… 🙂

Its funny, you think you’ve got a week off, you should be able to get things done. Indirectly, yes, I have, but in terms of reading and writing, no chance! Both Monday and yesterday had appointments to keep which took up most of the day, and alright, today I just wanted to get out! Was a good shopping expedition, even if the bus travel wasnt. Arriva buses, take a bow, but only of shame! Tomorrow, I will get some reading done, I will, I must!

The video, yes, not hard to work out, a song from the late seventies, by the title of…oh, you’ve worked it out, why tell you. The shock, its a live one, and unlike so many ‘celebrity’ singers, David Soul clearly could sing!

Electric Dreams

Before I go any further, I will say that I’ve never seen the film, all I’ve seen of it is the official video featuring Phil Oakey, and this wonderful take off of it. Yes, I promised more Gary Simmons, and lo and behold, here it is. This features his girlfriend as well, who certainly doesnt lack for talent either, though is seemingly no part of the tribute show he’s in whatsoever.

Together in electric dreams, that so sounds like a plot for a mind control story, doesnt it? Though unlike the film, I suspect for us it might generate images of a whole different means of achieving that? I know it would for me lol! For me, it definitely involves wiring the brain up, and possibly a whole lot more, but that doesnt happenin that sort of Hollywood film.

Funny thing is though, dreams tend to be a singular thing. There may be someone else in it, but technically you’re the director, they are just the actor/actress playing their part. But if you literally shared a dream with someone…I wonder how it would go at times? There are times I’m wondering if I’m sharing a dream with the spirit of Louise Brooks, but anyway…I’ll admit it, in more senses than one, sharing a dream with Fembotheather would be a great, fun experience. Possibly because we are both fembot fans, possibly because we are both LB fans, but either way… I do think sharing with a stranger would be a whole different affair though?

So who do you want to be together in an ‘electric dream’ with? I might as well have just added James as a name to that question, but you never know…

The video, as I say, more Gary Simmons, really like his style of video making, and the music is good too. I’m not saying the Phil Oakey version isnt, just that this is the one I want to plug.

My Sweet Louise

Its just as well that I know much of my readership here emanates from the MC Garden, because in all honesty, anyone visiting this who isnt a member there isnt going to know what I’m talking about!

Almost a year ago, the Garden came under attack from some bots, or whatever, the end result of which was some attempted password cracking to try and gain entry. In the end, the Garden won, I’m pleased to say. The thing was, I amongst a small number of people was one of those whose password they were trying to crack. Ended up having to change my name from the traditional one of Robotunit8, and thats how Stevie Nicks came into existence, a play on my own name, with dry comments relating to the far more famous pop star of that name. I didnt change the famous robot style avatar though, that at least survived, even if the name no longer truly matched it.

And yes, Kris did come up with a new avatar image for me shortly after, still with a degree of robot relation, but more fitting into the new me. And now, it might finally get used, well assuming I dont like the current one too much that is! Which, well…its growing on me already.

No, I havent finally (after nearly 54 years of life) totally outgrown the whole robotisation thing, though its fair to say that for a few years now, its been much less of a priority in my life. Still fancy doing a major transformation scene, still holds some appeal, but its not as big a thing as it used to be.

Some may have noticed in recent months a new, interesting development. Blame Fembotheather and her avatars, blame a certain OMD video, or a combination of both, but a certain amazing lady from the 20’s has began to play more of a role in my life. Hey, despite unofficially being retired from story writing, ‘she’ convinced me to write one indirectly about her! It seems to have been recieved quite well, despite some gaps between chapters, because of, you guessed it, getting time to write! If anyone hasnt worked out who that is (and I’m not sure how if you havent!), her name is Mary Louise Brooks, though many just know her as Louise, and probably only know about her because of OMD, and the Pandoras Box video. Alright, if it wasnt for Heather, and Andy McCluskey, I wouldnt know much about her either, I suspect.

So anyway, getting to the point. We had another “minor hiccup” at the Garden a few days back, and 1 or 2 decided to go into “alternate universe” mode, as some did a year ago, when name changes were more critical. I wasnt going to join in, but then, the idea of paying tribute to Louise for a short while, combined with the overdue change of an avatar, well I joined in!

So now at the Garden, for a while at least, I’m known as Merry Brooks, a neat alliteration you have to admit? And a new avvie, a lovely picture of her. To be honest, it suits perfectly, though my fringe isnt as strong as hers, and my hair is blonde, but minor points… Apart from that, it fits me so well that I’m tempted to stick with the pic (sorry Kris) even after I change the name back at some point soon.

The Forum still knows me as Robotunit8 lol, name changes arent so easily done over there. If it wasnt that I liked the avvie there still, I’d be tempted to use Kris’s there, and might yet. But that avvie there is more like a download than anything else, and that might be Louise being downloaded into my mind, I should be so lucky!

Alright, I’ll bring this marathon post to an end in the usual way, a music video. I would love to have found the original New Seekers version of this, but it wasnt to be, mainly I suspect because it was only a B side, and album track for them, and it was 40 years ago! But I found this, so…

I Never Promised You A (Rose) Garden

So apologies to all the Admins and others trying to fix the problem at present, but I couldnt resist the chance to do this.

Yes, no one ever promised us a Garden, even an MC one, just as well because something seems to have gone wrong with it at present. What I do know is that I hope it can be fixed soon, because I’m definitely missing it tonight. So alright, it means I’ve got some blogging done, but even so…not the same for me without it. 😦

And of course, some might spot the Rose significance at the Garden as well lol! Forum members, and other visitors just wont have a clue though!

Its funny, I know a ‘robot’ should have a routine, and I certainly have mine, and it includes visits to both MC Forums of an evening after work. And tonight, 50% of that just gets a funny message, which means nothing to a non computer expert like me. As I’ve jokingly said before, I want the computer to control me, not the other way around! And yes, I am totally blonde when it comes to computers, and the workings thereof, and I dont deny it!

I dont know how long its been down, it was working fine at 6 am this morning, my time, more than I probably was at that point! Got home tonight, and aargh, where’s it gone? I hope things are back to normal by the morning, because like an MC victim, I really do need my fix lol!

I did think of a couple of other songs as tributes, We Love You by OMD, one of the various versions of Windmills Of Your Mind (read the lyrics!), but I plumped for this in the end.

I beg your pardon, hope we soon get back our ‘Rose’ Garden

Cold is relative

Depends on where you live I guess?

You get us British wimps complaining how cold it is when it hits the mid twenties over here, on the other hand, there are parts of the US and Canada who would think that positively tropical at present.  I’ve just taken a quick look, and currently Boston is in singles figures (just), and Buffalo barely breaking into positive numbers. Fairbanks, where I have one Facebook contact is currently -45, but it is still night time there, but even so…! I suspect thats pretty much one of the coldest places around though? Nome, a place close to my heart is at 1, quite warm for this time of year lol!

The thing is, I suspect that public transport doesnt collapse around New York State, New England, Toronto etc despite these temperatures, whereas 3 grains of snow over here, and everything will collapse totally! Thankfully its only frost so far, so it hasnt happened yet, but give it time, and I’m sure it will. Knowing my luck it will be the week after next when I’m off! I would like to do some day trips beyond the one to get my back and knees sorted out, to some degree at least, but…

I suppose its what you get used to? If I lived, and worked in, and around that North East sector I mentioned, the cold probably wouldnt bother me as much, if at all, unlike it does over here? Me, I just tend to get on with it anyway, but public transport seems unable to do so, and when you’re reliant on it as I am… But yes, I’d still love to chance to live and work in those chilly areas, given the chance. Seattle might be better, but… Hey, I’d probably go and work in Anchorage if given the opportunity lol! Fairbanks, hmm… 😉

Its something you get used to, or at least I assume you do, maybe James, Kate and others will tell me differently? Mind, a well insulated silver body suit might make for a good option for me, lol!

Alright, some music which seems applicable at the moment, though doing it along I-90 might be complex all the same! I tossed up several versions of this, but this seemed the most apt somehow
