Tesla guy, testing out theories

Its fair to say that over the years, Elon Musk has come up with some fascinating concepts. Some of which have gone into full development (Tesla Cars), some of which (Space X) exist in concept, though nothing dramatic has happened yet, but probably will. Finally, there are ideas like Hyperloop which have been talked up considerably, though at present there seems little evidence as to whether it will ever happen! So yes, mixed record, would be fair to say.

The latest one, which is one I personally would love to see happen, and indeed be part of, is Neuralink, which is seen as a brain computer interface system. I suspect the humans are meant to be in charge, but if it worked the other way as well, on me, well I wouldnt complain!


Or if you have more time, more of the issues are discussed in parts 3, and 4 here


Yes, it seems at present that the biggest issue is the fact that to literally interface with the human mind would take rather a large number of electrodes literally connected to the brain, which is, err, a bit complex at present. Surgery is an obvious issue, but however small you can develop those electrodes, there is still a space limit with the human head for all that extra hardware! And thats all before finding a brain surgeon capable of, and willing to do the surgery involved in this interface with the human mind. Lets face it, a few people might not mind a couple of electrodes wired to their mind, but about a thousand? Oh fine, a few like me would enjoy it, but most people… No!

Put it this way, human/computer interface will happen, though I find it doubtful that it will be Elon Musk doing it in around 5 years time. Give it 20-25 years, and I wouldnt be surprised though, possibly even less. But fine, if Elon Musk wants to give it a try, on a willing human volunteer, anytime soon, then he needs to give me a call, please!

Right, video time. One of his big successes, mentioned in a song, though I suspect the homage is to a different Tesla, for sure! Live version, from LA, where I’ll be in under 3 weeks. Sadly, OMD wont be there then!

Getting my mind set on…?

I must admit, when I start this blog, in companionship to my personal one, I was thinking that I would mainly let this one settle on the weird and wonderful world of science fiction, and mind control stuff. No, it hasnt worked out that way, but besides all that, variety is the spice of life, as they say.

Its well known that ECT is a very ‘marmite’ subject (for those folk who dont get that comment, you either are a fan, or you hate it, no middle ground), and fine, I’m one of the fans of it. No, no flame war, pretty please, this blog is about my feelings on matters, though if you want to comment for the opposite view, politely, feel free to do so.

No, I’ve never had it done, but if I needed it, and it was offered to me, absolutely, try stopping me from having it done, in fact. Fine, that might be down to the robot thing, it might be down to the fact that having my mind zapped by a nice amount of electricity would appeal a lot, and it might also be because I’ve heard plenty of stories of people who have benefitted by it, as well as people for whom it might not have worked so well. But fine, the anti folk dont want to hear positive things about ECT, lets face it.

Anyway, the comment that set me off on Twitter, was someone saying that all those people supporting ECT on the board, wouldnt have it done themselves, only have it done on other people. Fine, for some, that might be true, but not me! So anyway, when I post this across to Twitter, I’m going to make sure it appears on the #ECT tag, and say that if anyone wants to arrange an ECT session for me, in LA, next month, I will happily do it. Now this can be one of the anti brigade, if they wish, to disprove their theory that the ‘fan club’ wont have it done on themselves, or it can be one of the pro brigade, prepared to get a supportive blog on the subject, post treatment, dont mind either way. But yes, I’d love to experience it, and if it means I get the chance to prove to people that its not as bad a thing as they think it is, all the better.

So, if any of the anti crowd want to put their money where their mouth clearly is, and pay for a fan of ECT to be treated (or punished, in their eyes) by it, then lets go for it. Equally, if a fan wants to pay for me to be the one that has the treatment, and comment accordingly, or one of the treatment units wants to let me experience it, and blog accordingly, feel free to contact me here, or at Twitter. Fine, I know there might be some short term issues, but I’ll be the one coping with them, not you.

Fine, it will have to be in the LA area, or if within a short distance, you’re arranging my transport, but…

Anyone want to take me up on my challenge, because I’ll do it, if you let me! So…?

Video time. Bit of a clue in the title, as so often around here.

Getting away from it.

The only consolation for me concerning the announcement over here today of a General Election being held in June, is that I’ll miss at least 10 days of the fuss, hype, and everything else surrounding it, as I will be out of the country. No, I’m not going to comment on my preferences, who I will be voting for, or any of the policies, given that I suspect my readers cover a wide political spectrum, and I really dont want to discuss the subject more than this cursory glance. I know, I could have ignored it completely, but its pretty hard to do, in truth, as a Brit.

As I say, thankfully 10 days of the campaigning will take place while I’m out in California, and given the nature of US TV, I doubt it will get too much attention over there, at least I hope not! Not that I plan to be watching too much TV while there, unless its me on a chat show, or something like that! But no, unless I get into the audience at Fallon’s, or Corden’s shows, and get seen, I wont hold my breath on that!

I will be doing my piece at the Talent Agency that I signed up with, on my last trip across, well, on their website at least. This time around I should get to meet the boss of the firm, and who knows where that might lead? Probably not far, but I can hope. In truth, a run in small theaters, in a small to medium role(s) would probably fulfil my dream. I know, star in the movies might be fun, but this isnt the Golden Age, its the reality age, and 59 year olds arent likely to break into the movies now! But…? Emailed the agency earlier today, to let them know I will (finally) be in town again, and see what develops from there. Probably just a meet and greet, but it could lead to more, who really knows?

I do plan for some down time too, but I’m pretty sure that this might be last chance saloon, so, nothing ventured, nothing gained, and at least I can then say I tried. I will also contact the lady who interviewed me last time I was over, and see if she still wants to do another interview as well. Never too much publicity, as they say lol!

But yes, I am getting away with 10 days less of the General Election build up than most, something for which I’m very grateful! And yes, that might be a hint to the video too!

Whatever you want me to do?

I guess that given all the hints I’ve made on here, it will come as no surprise to anyone that I’m a bit submissive, to put it mildly! Lets face it, I wouldnt want to be turned into a robot if I was Domme lol! 😛

Let me add that I happily wear a collar at home, and in fact, quite often 2, one on top of the other. Not because I’m owned or anything, because at present, I’m not, but because I just enjoy the feel of wearing one. The one I wear pretty much most of the time I’m just generally at home, is a soft leather type (pretty sure its material, not leather) one, with the word ‘Android’ written on it, along with a few suitable studs as ‘electrodes’ which in truth, I even sleep in nowadays. No, sadly, its never shown any actual inclination to turn me into an android, but a girl can hope, that one day…I know, not going to happen!

The other is a bit more solid, a lot heavier, with a delicious metal ring, and a place to lock it on me at the front. That has got a leather lining, so quite pleasant to wear, but I couldnt sleep in it, because of the weight issue around the neck, and the rings, which would make getting comfortable tricky, so that comes off at night. But much of the time, at home, yes, its on too, during waking hours.

But yes, I wear both, purely from choice. But yes, my weird and crazy mind started wondering what it would be like if you had a collar that couldnt be easily removed? I know, some people do, and I dont tend to keep the key in a lot of the time, but its nearby, just in case… And then my mind got thinking towards the android title on the lighter collar, and wondering what it would be like to wear a collar that literally controlled you, just like an android/robot? Mind, body, or both, any would be interesting to be part of. I guess to truly do that, it would somehow have to be linked to your mind, nervous system, or both, and yes, I’m pretty sure technology is still some way off that point at present. Interesting thought though?

Would I wear one? Certainly, if I was told it just a short term thing, you’d have to try and stop me putting it on, and hopefully lose. Permanently, in the sense of total control forever, probably, but I would think about it. If say it had some sort of activation device that needed to be switched on for it to work, but had to be worn permanently (presumably because it would be linked to said nervous system/mind), pretty sure I would.

I know, pure hypothesis, such a thing doesnt exist, isnt likely to exist in the near future, or anything else, at least while I’d make an attractive victim (I’m 60 next year, for heavens sake), but as I say, I can dream. But if any ‘mad scientist’ wants to conceptualize about such a collar, and needs a guinea pig to try it on, let me know! 😉

Video, bit of a clue in the blog title. A lot of people think of the Proms, and think classical music only, but here in the UK now, things have changed! Fair to say that both Status Quo, and the Orchestra are rather enjoying this show!

Talking loud and clear?

I’ll be quite honest, I owe the inspiration for this blog to a memory that was suggested on my Facebook timeline, combined with something that will be happening at work next month, and not my holiday!

As is the way with so many things in life, you just get used to the system you use at work, then someone decides it needs to be changed, and you have to start all over again. In truth, what I can see of it, its not that different to the one we’re currently using, but even so, any kind of change, at my age…fine, I’ll survive! 😛

The snag will be, that we actually did the training for the new system early in March, and we dont start using it until early in May! Yes, I’m not as young as I used to be, and I’m blonde! So actually remembering that, when the time comes around to change over to the new system, hmm? I know we will have assistance on the day, and some paperwork we can refer to, but fine, me, and getting used to change? Lets face it, I cant stand the modern smart phones, so…I know, old dinosaur, and all that, lol!

Snag for me, is I’ll just start getting used to it, then not be there for 2 weeks, and forget it all! Yes, I will be using it for a whole week, then disappearing for just over 2 weeks, given bank holidays, day off, and the like when I get back. Yes, I planned for that, just wasnt planning on having to use a new phone system around that period!

Oh right, you’re probably wondering what made me think of my training for the new system, arent you? I suppose you expect me to let you see it, right? Oh fine, might see this being used as a way to remember how to use the new system as a bit dramatic, but fine, I’d love it far too much.

No, I have no idea why I used that picture on Facebook 2 years ago, but the less said on that, probably the better!

The video, some live OMD, which in truth is a better version than the original video. One of their few songs that really works better with an orchestra, in truth.

Going down to San Diego

Yes, one day next month, I plan to take the opposite route to the Chargers, and go down to San Diego, from LA. I will be doing it by train, unlike most people related to the Chargers, who I’m sure would do the journey by plane.

I must admit, in terms of travelling distances like this, I prefer to do it by train, than plane, because you get to see some scenery. Oh, and fine, people watching is always fun too. Having never been south of LA, going down the California coast by train, should make for an interesting journey. Fine, the coming back, after dark may not be as much fun, but will make for a good experience, I’m sure, regardless. In terms of a couple of my US journeys by train, this will be a short hop! That is because previously I’ve travelled from Seattle to Philadelphia and back, about 14 years ago, with 2 changes going (Chicago/Pittsburgh), and 1 (Chicago) coming back. So yes, about 3 hours, as opposed to nearly 3 days…piece of cake!

No, I’m not going down to San Diego to convince the Chargers to stay, or audition for the Padres baseball team, but to meet someone for the first time! Yes, one of those Facebook friends moments! I’ll be fine, she likes Powell, Loy and Harlow lol! I dont know, is it an actress thing, that meeting people you only vaguely know for the first time doesnt really bother me? Given what I know about her, in all honesty, I’m certain it will be a very entertaining 6 hours or so, for sure!

Oh, and she’s a witch, so whether I will be travelling on that train home, or Jean Harlow will, I have no idea. I’m not sure if magic spells are really that good, in truth. I suspect it might be easier to change me into my past life self actress, Clara Johnson, now that would be fun. Not sure how she would react to modern lifestyles, mind!

But yes, 2 more delights to look forward to, next month, in California.

Right, video moment! One of those You Tube search issues, I put the name of the city in, and it found this. I do remember the group, though this song is only from last year, sounds fine to me.

The merging of personalities

When it comes to story writers on the EMCSA, there are a few that I seem to have a love/hate relationship with. No, not in a personal way, just the nature of their stories. There is one guy who either annoys me totally with his pieces, or I just love the stories, nothing in between. But fine, this isnt about him. This is about a female writer, who uses some most delicious methods to control people, but then has this bad habit of stepping outside my comfort zone over an issue like unnecessary humiliation usage. Her name is Heather, though it isnt the Fembotheather I’ve mentioned before, I might add.

One story of hers that intrigued me for various reasons, was this one.

No, I’ve never worked in the Worlds ‘Oldest Profession’, and nor would I want to, even if I was young enough, and pretty enough to do so. Though I guess, if needs must? Let me add that I’ve known personally a couple of ladies who have, a long time ago, and they told me that it wasnt as bad as the image might be portrayed. Fine, both of these women operated out of safe premises, not the street corners, but fine, I admired them for doing it, and thought, not for me though, thanks.
But this story is supposedly a step up on that, high class escort girls, and fine, the story did have me wondering what that type of work would actually be like? Fine, at 59, and not all that pretty, I’m not likely to find out now, but OK, it made me curious as to what it would actually be like, doing that role? Is it as glamorous as in the story? I know, not going to find an answer here, but anyway…

Her other story I read today that had me thinking, was this one.

No, I dont think again, at my age, and with my looks, I’m likely to find out what its like to be desirable and sexy, through an alter ego like Amber. But equally, I do wonder if my latent, and currently fairly dormant acting talents developed because of that bit part Hollywood actress in my past life? So yes, it had me thinking, if I just let go, and became Clara, would my acting skills, and presumably her dancing talents shine through in me?

I know, this piece is purely fictional, but knowing she’s within me, and even if she never made it as a major star, I’m pretty sure she was more talented in that field than me. So if it was possible to just let go, and really become Clara…hmm?

Oh fine, I’d rather become a big star like Jean Harlow, but even now, that little edge in talent, that might actually get me some decent roles, fascinating to consider? But yes, I cant deny that I’d love to become Clara, on my trip to Hollywood, if only to see the city as she would, allowing for the differences in time at least.

A saucy promo, one of my stories where you could say that Clara and I did become 1? https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/576469
Go on, make us both happy, not a big price! Oh, and Jean appears twice too!

Video time. For becoming someone else, or merging personalities, one song instantly came to mind, this one
