Help me to remember

One of those moments that I blame for my fascination in brainwashing, was as a young child (well, pre-teen at least), was actually a comedy movie, one of the Carry On series, that will possibly mean nothing to my US readers, as it was a very British thing, a film called ‘Carry On Spying’. In one scene at least, the joke was that a very busty, blonde secret agent would have been brainwashed, only they couldnt find a brain to wash. Said blonde was an actress named Barbara Windsor, the butt of numerous jokes, for obvious reasons, in said series of films.

Well, given the strange, messed up kid that I was when young, it left me with a fascination of what it would be liked to really be brainwashed, and I guess it never went away. Then when a few years later, I saw Metropolis, and I was ‘ruined’ for normal life after that lol! In truth, I suspect the Cybermen, and others had already gripped my imagination, but those 2 things had big effects on me.

Sadly, its now come out that Barbara Windsor is being ‘brainwashed’, and not in a nice way, diagnosed with Alzheimers. So far in my life, I’ve been fortunate that no one I have been close to has suffered from it, but it must be awful, both for the person suffering, and their surrounding friends, and family. Who knows, maybe if I live long enough (and given my health issues, I have my doubts I’ll get that far), I’ll suffer with it too?

Oh fine, I’d love to be brainwashed with a nice sparking helmet, or even a non sparking helmet, wiping my mind, making me blank, and obedient, but this is a whole different matter. But yes, it makes you feel old when people you grew up watching on TV, and this happens to them.

Video time. Yes, I knew what I wanted, had no idea of the artist though, so thank goodness for search engines. I think its fair to say that Men In Black found their theme tune through this, though the connection is apt!

All The Small Things (I Could Do)

You know all these people who do something crazy to celebrate their birthdays, especially the landmark ones? No, I never have, been thoroughly boring in that sense, all my life.

So now, why do I feel I want to do something this year, beyond the fact its the oldies landmark of 60, no idea? Even more so given that I’ve now got issues with my back, issues with my budget, given I’m now only able to do a 4 day week, and never done anything crazy like that up to now?

The answer is, no idea, but I feel that I do! The only possible so far, which would definitely be fun, is this, http://www.auntysocial.co.uk/some-like-it-hot-volunteers/ which I have put myself forward for, but its actually on my birthday, and its miles from me, but yes, it would be a wonderful way to celebrate officially hitting old age!

Now I dont (seriously) expect any passing aliens to offer me a flight in a space craft, nor do I seriously expect a friendly mad scientist to turn me into a robot, brainwashed, or the like either (If anyone wants to roleplay for real, either of those 2 things, and you’re in a suitable location…?) . Equally, and lets face it, its too late now for research anyway, do I expect to get offered a guided tour of an ECT theater either. Also, lets face it, I’m not likely to be offered a part in a film, movie, or theater run now, either!

There is also the snag that not only do I now have physical issues, which would stop anything too crazy on that front, but because I’ve had to cut my working week due to it, I havent got the money to treat myself either! So, in truth, beyond perhaps the Blackpool thing, it looks like being another quiet birthday week, ah well…

But fine, it might be fun to just do something silly, once in my life, before I’m officially too old, just saying…? But what?

OK, video time. Big clue in the title here. I know, never been done before, but anyway…

How would it feel?

As someone definitely more into the technological side of mind control, rather than the relatively ‘tamer’ version applied through hypnosis, I’ve always wondered how it would actually feel to be mind controlled, or brainwashed, in reality. Of course, let me say, that as its all fictional, and impossible in real life, this is purely hypothetical, but…?

Strictly the mind control side of things depends on what is done to the lucky person, sorry, victim of the mind control. Some are taken over so totally that not only do they think that their new thoughts are their own, they may not even realize they’re being controlled! Of course there are others, where they know they are being controlled, but are hopeless to resist it, to any degree. And yes, you get a few where resistance does happen, for a while at least, but in the end…the inevitable happens.

But the one I’m going to look into more tonight, is the actual brainwashing stuff. Usually, thankfully in stories, if someone is brainwashed, they tend to get reprogrammed with new thoughts, so unless you’re turning them into an actual robot, or robot like machine, why not just tamper with the thoughts in the first place, rather than making all that effort? Well, I suppose if you want to create a whole new identity, or person, its easier that way, to wipe clean, then start again, but if you just want control over someone…?

But lets say you brainwash someone, or more ideally in my case, are thoroughly brainwashed, what does it feel like for the recipient? Are you literally blank minded, incapable of doing anything, or recognizing anyone around you, without being commanded to do so? Is there actually any point in brainwashing someone, and not actually reprogramming them to obey commands anyway? And if brainwashed, is it simply a blank minded state of blissfulness, or something more? You cant think surely, if your mind has been erased, or does something else kick in, to counteract that fact?

A question I’m going to ask of any hypnotist reading this, though I guess none will answer, regardless, is could you actually ‘brainwash’ a willing victim through hypnosis? I only ask because I’m curious to know what its actually like to feel like you’ve been brainwashed, even temporarily like this, just to discover what it actually feels like. And if literally brainwashed, in that way, and unable to think for themselves, could you then override the practice that the subject has to be willing to do things suggested to him. Because normally, anyone could react, and stop anything happening to them (despite fictional hypnosis stories that suggest otherwise), but if your mind has been wiped clean, in theory at least…? Hmm?

Yes, if anyone quite literally wants to show me, or let me experience it, I’d love to. Whether you then leave me as a mindless, obedient robot, hmm? 😉

Right, video time. One of those Slade songs that even if you’re old enough to remember them, unless you were a big fan like me, you probably dont know it, but you should!

Inside the repair pod

Yes, I know, I only wish that was true! No, I didnt even get to be slid into one of those scanning machines for my X-Rays, just laid on a bed, in a couple of positions, and then, that was it. And no, I dont know how ugly the pictures of my back, and side were, will be a week or two before the doctors get the results of them. Of course, if they dont like what they see, I might get a whole new cybernetic back. Yes, in my dreams only, I’m sure. But yes, I would, given the chance, and 2 new knees to match too! Hopefully I wont need major surgery on my back, as well as my knees, but if I do, so be it!

To be fair, I did realize that I wasnt going to get slid into any of the more interesting scanners, just to have first images done of my lower back area. So yes, just got to lay on a bed, firstly on my back, then on my side while they took some pictures, then back home. I know, those scanners where they slide you in, and I could have fantasized they were doing something wicked to my mind would have been a lot more fun, but anyway…never going to happen, was it?

And to be fair, I’m probably the only person who would prefer to be sealed in a pod, while the pictures were taken, or while having my body healed, especially the former, aren’t I? Not sure that sort of thing even exists, beyond my wild imagination, but oh my, that would be wonderful!

In truth, that was my first X-Ray for 30 years, though I’m pretty sure the next one will be a lot sooner than that, as I’m sure they will take a look at my knees, before the inevitable joint replacement surgery gets done, which I can put off for now, but I suspect not a lot longer!

But yes, if anyone wants a volunteer to try out a radical new healing pod, that requires a human volunteer to stay in, for some hours, while the work is done, please count me in, I’d love it!

OK, the video. Well, inevitably, if a pod was created that could heal your body, it could probably do interesting things to your mind as well, if desired. And this video is just so out of left field, that concept is more an excuse to use it, than actually tampering with my mind, not that I would mind if someone did. Oh, and the next time they need someone to wear that cat outfit, to make a video… 😉

Thats what I like!

Its fair to say that more than a few stories on the EMCSA attract my attention, because they are well written, cleverly done, and have great characters. Then, fine I admit it, you get stories that push my buttons for just so many reasons, and today happened to provide one of those! I have no idea if the use of the name Stephanie was an actual tribute to me, or just coincidence, but fine, dropping a character named Stephanie (its the name I’m known as, on the forums) into a situation where she can choose to become part of a hive mind, then yes, I’m impressed. The fact that the story is well written, and includes latex drone outfits are a handy bonus as well, mind.

Oh, you want the link? Well…?

Before you ask, no, I’ve never been to a hypnosis convention, so have no idea if the portrayal of such is accurate, or not? I have been hypnotized of course, more than once, but always on a one to one basis, nothing like a convention. But yes, if I was met by a latex clad drone, asking me if I wanted to become part of a hive mind, there is only one possible answer, yes please! Oh, and if you’re wondering, no, my, sorry, Stephanie’s transformation isnt just by simple hypnosis! And yes, there is a bit of a twist at the end too!

Oh fine, a chrome coating would be even better, but…

So no, I have no idea if it was written for me, or not, but regardless, I could very much fancy the thought that it was. Now, if that could really happen…

The logic of pop music over the years really is, that there is nothing logical to it. So, if anyone now said that this act, mixing old songs into a record/video, the latter of which would include a bunny, well…But yes, 3 number 1’s in a row in the UK, with first 3 records! So, yes, being turned into a hive mind, latex clad drone, thats what I would like!

A challenge for the submissive mind

Given that I really havent got any logical blog material for tonight (feel free to suggest in comments, or email me at robotunit8@hotmail.com if you have any), lets go with that good old faithful back up, a side look at a story I read earlier. Today, the fascinating subject matter relates to a story by that writing genius named Jukebox, and his story, Divide And Conquer. Link?

http://192.155.80.152/DivideAndConquer/index.html

So fine, the intriguing question for a submissive like me, with this story, is do I just let myself be brainwashed, which I would enjoy, lets face it, and run the risk of being Domme to another woman, or do I plot, try to ignore the pleasure of being brainwashed, and resist, just long enough to be guaranteed to be submissive to a Mistress, as well as a Master? I know, hopefully she would be weaker than me, last even less time, and I get to be thoroughly submissive, or should I try and resist, at least until I know she’s been broken, and then give in, and just enjoy the thorough brainwashing? Hmm?

No, I’m not saying what happens, you need to go read it, if you want to find out, but fine, it sounds like that helmet is quite something, and I’d love to be enslaved/brainwashed like that, I must say. Snag is, at my age, not an attractive target lol! But yes, I’m pretty sure ***** will be glad she, err, lost the battle to be the Domme, somehow? 😉

OK, the video. What ***** may have been hiding from her Master to be, when it came to whether she wanted to be Domme, or Sub to another woman, just maybe? One of those seemingly forgotten songs of Mud, no idea why?

If they want to make me change teams at work

Then doing something like this to me, at work, might be needed!

or

Oh, I wish, believe me, would love either of those done to me! No, on a serious matter, I found out this week that I will be changing teams at work, in the very near future. No, nothing dramatic, doing the same job, just a change of team leaders, nothing more. I get on well with both team leaders involved, so no issue to me, either way.

Beyond that, a change of desks, which will mean having to do all the desk suitability checks again, but nothing much more exciting than that. In truth, I suppose it was fair to assume that working in a department, with 5 separate teams, that I wasnt likely to stay in the same team until retirement, but wasnt expecting the shift so soon. One day, if I get ambitious, or maybe I’m made to be ambitious, I might be getting my own team, as a team leader, but hey, I’ve only got 7 years to go to retirement age, but it might happen?

I know, its far from the first time its happened to me, at one time I was a relief manager, so getting any affection for any single shop was out of the question back then. And yes, in my last 2 places of work prior to this one, changes of team were nothing new.

But fine, if at my age, I get feisty about changing teams, would they like to convince me using one of these methods, or something similar? Oh, I only wish! Fine, I’ll have to go quietly, but this would be a lot more fun!

OK, video time. I love the whole 80’s feel, and look to this, and naturally I love the silver outfits, and fine, those space suits look fun too! No, I have no idea what they do to her, or how they do it, but if someone wants to show me how it was done…? 😉
