Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

In all my call center experience, all I’ve ever worked with, is what you would term, a wired headset. In other words you plug a jackplug into your phone, or socket box, and get all your calls through that. Yes, it limits the amount you can move, while working, but hey, thats fine, if you need to leave the desk, you just take them off, and move about freely. Otherwise, does it matter if you can, or cant move away from your seat while working, probably not?

So yes, you’ve guessed it, this workplace has wireless headphones! Yes, within a reasonable range, you can move around at work, while taking calls! Now, if you need to use your computer, you cant go far, but if you’re in the middle of a call which is all talk, and no do, it can be done, and yes, I saw it. OK, its amusing, because seemingly no one seemed to know how to set it up, so that I could listen in on calls too, but we got there in the end.

I’m told the main issue with them, is the lack of hearing your own voice, but I’m pretty sure I can survive that, in truth. I wont actually find out what thats like until I hit the main floor (if I ever get there, as it would be about 6 weeks, and I have got another better job in the pipeline), as the training center uses the old fashioned wired version, seemingly. Sadly, unless they’re saving that for post training, these headphones show no desire to send interesting signals into the headphones, and forwarded into our minds. Ah well… 😉 Oh fine, I’m probably the only one who would love that, but anyway…a promise that they would, might be the only way they’ll keep me lol!

Yes, Customer Service side of things, fine by me. Technical service though, which we’re meant to start training for, in a fortnight, hmm? I mean, lets face it, me, I’m more interested in being controlled by technology, than controlling it! But if still there, I’ll give it a go, at least.

Of course, I could equally be setting up for an acting career in the US…fine, I know, not going to happen, but… joke!

Fine, the video. Major hint in the title, and I’d love to have the chance to be dressed like the dancers in this, oh please!

Kissing the machine

Yes, its not a well hidden fact around here that I have a fascination with being turned into a robot. Lets face it, the title of this blog is a pretty good giveaway on that fact, if nothing else does. So alright, with current technology, its not likely to happen, but no harm in dreaming/fantasising about it, is there?

Of course, there is always the 64 million dollar question about whether I’d feel quite the same way about it, if it was just about to happen for real, but hey, get me in that position first, and then I’ll let you know lol! I suspect the answer would still be yes, but get me wired up first, and then ask again! But yes, for now, either being hypnotised into believing I was a robot, or a roleplay session where it felt like I was about to be transformed would be very exciting to experience all the same. Any offers, feel free to write and let me know. Real thing, as I say, even better, but…lets keep it practical lol!

Oh, and I’m still open to suggestions/quotes for a really nice silver robot outfit, and/or a headset that I could use, especially one I could use at work that would actually stay on my head, something like a skullcap, or redesigned cycle helmet that wouldnt slip off when my head moved! Electrodes are just an optional extra lol! Talking of outfits, the one first seen 46 seconds into the video, very nice indeed! And no, I dont mean the Robbie one, but… Oh, and of course I love the whole Maria design, but suspect that wouldnt be cheap to recreate.

Right, lets get to what inspired this piece, something that occurred in the last few days over at Fembot Central. A posting was made by someone from National Geographic, looking for people to talk for a programme about the whole fembot thing. No, I wont be taking part, their location limitations are North America, so I’m not a practical subject as far as they are concerned, such is life. Could have been interesting, especially if as I suggested, we set it all up in an interesting manner, in other words, with me about to be turned into an obedient robot, or just after it happened, even if only in a played version, not reality. Funny thing is, it wouldnt be the first time that I’ve been on TV re the whole fembot thing. It all first happened about 10 years ago, for a Canadian TV company, whose name I dont remember, and something was filmed in my bedroom in London, hardly the most exciting setting lol! No, I dont remember if it was a Canadian crew in England for something, or just a local crew they employed. I can hardly imagine they flew the Atlantic just to interview me lol! No, I never did get to see the documentary, but never mind…Given no one asked for my autograph when I was in Toronto a while back, I suspect not many saw it lol? Mind, that was a few years after the event, so…

Right, and so to the video, dont forget to watch for that outfit, though that headpiece certainly wouldnt do for work purposes lol! The vocals are Andy McCluskey, yes, that guy from OMD. And on their new album, released in April, they are producing a version of this song. I hope they release it as a single, I’d love to see their video! But for now, enjoy this

PS If you want to kiss this ‘machine’, you have to turn me into a machine first! 😉

Booking in for a brainwashing session

No, not really, wouldnt it be fun if I was! Nothing so exciting I’m afraid, just that as long as its possible to get across to Manchester tomorrow (could be icy), I’m going to treat myself to a session in the Aqua Massage machine again, though of course this will be purely for beneficial purposes, and absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it makes you feel like you’re getting into a brainwashing/robotisation machine, even more so when they put the headphones over your ears, that soft music is playing, you fall asleep and…obey all commands that your ‘Masters’ give you. Alright, maybe not the last thing, but hey, I wouldnt mind if it did!

But agreed, when the inner lining presses tightly against your body, and those powerful jets (supposedly water) blast against the back of your head, and your neck, well… 😉 Lets face it, you arent going to hear the subliminal messages telling you that you’re now an obedient robot anyway, thats all part of the plan!

Oh, alright, in reality, that doesnt happen, well not unless they had me completely fooled the first time, that is! What it did do though, is make my back, and knees feel amazingly good, and I dont think that was done by mind control, but dont quote me on that. Alright, there was no mind control involved, but hey, a girl can dream… 😉 What I’m trying to decide is whether a double length session would provide double the benefits or not? And whether that would give them enough time to actually brainwash me? Oh alright, maybe not, but… Because given how often I can actually get over to Manchester, double length benefits would be handy. Besides which, I get twice as long to fantasise that I’m being brainwashed and robotised too, well assuming I dont just fall asleep of course, you get so relaxed!

So if anyone can tell me that 20 minutes would give better long term benefits than 10, let me know by the morning!

Oh, the video, a proper brainwashing session. Sadly this clip doesnt actually include the good bit, assuming it even happened? I’m told the film wasnt all that good, so…no, I havent seen it lol.

Oh, PS, if anyone in the Manchester/West Yorkshire area actually wants to brainwash/robotise me (real, hypno, or good RP), I’m available all week. 😉

New headset design needed

Yes, a rare event here, something that could be regarded as work related, in a sense. And yet, in a sense, its the perfect item for a mind controller to use, the telephonist’s headset, and for me at least, one of the annoyances in work life.

Yes, you’ve probably seen them, the headband type, with one earpiece, and a microphone that supposedly sits in front of your mouth, so you can speak to the customers at the same time as listening to them. Not literally of course, but you know what I mean? If you keep your head facing forward, looking at the computer, then yes, they are fine. Well, fine might be a bit generous, but they get by lol! For someone with a decent amount of hair like myself, they can still come off at the slightest opportunity, because they really arent tight to my head.

But where my ‘fun’ really starts is when I’m on the escalated desk, dealing with other issues, as well as calls. This requires you to look down at paperwork, then lift your head to either check details, or input information onto the computer. Yes, you’ve guessed it, it doesnt take much movement for the headset to slide off my head! To be honest, most others using the desk just grab the phone in their left hand, and type with their right, rather than using a headset in the first place. The snag is for me, I’m left handed, and you cant hold the phone, and type with the same hand lol!

So what I’m looking for is a cheap design that wont fall off your head at the slightest opportunity. So sorry, customising one of those cute cycle helmets probably wouldnt pass the price test for most, though it might still tempt me to get one anyway. But if anyone could design one of these headsets with more of a skullcap design, than that silly headband, well that would be perfect. In silver would earn bonus points, but in all honesty, I just want something that stays on my head.

So any designers out there, or anyone who knows a designer, think it over, and see what you can come up with. If it comes complete with mind controlling electrodes, thats a bonus, but that might need to be an exclusive design for me! 😉

The video, very loose connection, but as a tribute to mind control, and those lovely headsets and helmets involved in controlling people, here is

A New Form Of Massage

As a number of my long term readers know, I suffer somewhat with painful joints, mainly the knees, and have a back that can play up when its in the mood to do so as well. Also, given that I’m slightly past 50 by now, my body is beginning to age anyway, not for the better, either. Yes, another advantage of being turned into a robot, a nice new, fresh body, and no concern about aching joints, or much else, I guess? 😉

So yes, regular massage sessions are part of my regime, and yes guys, I mean a proper massage lol! 😛 Though there are times, rather like now, if I’m being honest, when some joints (right knee at present) seem determined to annoy me considerably, even though my next session isnt for another week or so. Oh, and if you’re wondering, I’ve had bad knees now for over 40 years, the result of a collision with a show jumping fence as a child. Its always been a pain, but as you get older, it does get worse. Yes, I also know that short of getting a new robot body (ha ha), I’m probably going to have to get artificial knee joints before too much longer, but trying to delay it as long as I can, dont want them wearing out before I do too!

Now to the more interesting bit. A few months ago, I did a quick day trip over to Manchester. In the Arndale Centre over there, I heard this loud whooshing noise, and when I turned the corner, I saw a pair of these machines, marked as Aqua Massagers. Hey, I love anything techy, so I took a closer look. Looked quite interesting, and not a silly price either, so in my way, I thought about it for 5 minutes or so, tempted to give it a go, but walked away. Why, I had a massage already booked for the next day with Linda, thats why! Didnt stop me nearly turning around and doing it anyway, but… I was trying to work out where you got changed lol, I assumed you got wet! Blonde moment, I know. Since then I’ve found out that you stay in your clothes, as its all lined, and all you get is the benefit of the water, and no soaking! Now I find out you get given a pair of headphones that help you to relax with soft music…alright, you can see the mind control writer stuff creeping in here, cant you lol?

I assume they cant brainwash you that much in 10 minutes, but who knows? 😉 Would I mind if they did, probably not! Lets just say that I’ll be back over in Manchester in just under 4 weeks, and I plan to give it a try then. Anyway, for those who havent seen one of these, here is a promo video from You Tube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlGn2qFiSVo

If anyone has tried it, let me know what its like. And if someone says they need 20 minutes to brainwash you with the headphones, I’ll book a double session lol!

A Robotised Mind

Yes, a follow up to the last posting. There we discussed a very nice looking robot body, now lets contemplate the perfect robot mind.

To ask how it would feel, is probably an irrelevant question, because the robot wouldnt feel, or more correctly, think for itself in the slightest. It would either operate by its programming, or the commands given to it, by whatever method. Personally, I’m a fan of the headset/helmet method of doing this, with an earpiece or two, commands can simply, and quickly given to the robot, and the command could be instantly carried out. Also, for me at least, the ears should be covered by such helmet, no risk of any other commands being received in this case, if someone was simply to talk to the robot.

But beyond the whole practical “empty mind” thing, for now, I wonder how it would feel if you were c0ntrolled in this way, could feel it, but had no power over your mind and body? A pretty strange sensation I would imagine, simply being a passenger within your own body. Well, alright, maybe its your own body, maybe its your body enclosed in a chrome shell, or even just maybe (though I suspect only in fiction at present) your whole body has been converted to a nice chrome shell?

But lets keep this into “reality” at present, as this is a follow up to the Graybot suit posting, and therefore look at that style of robotic control, and transformation. Given I see it as a suit, lets assume you put it on, and maybe can take off again, said suit. Alright, I suspect the likelihood is that once on, it stays on, but anyway…Equally, lets note that suit is purely a body suit, so if that young ladies mind has been robotised as well, then something else carried out that process, be it chair, helmet, or a nice set of electrodes, or more likely a combination of at least two of those lol!

Post processing, her mind simply obeys the commands given to her by her controller, by whatever means. As I say, helmet for me, maybe they just took it off for the picture, and there is latent control. Who knows, she might have some nice brain implants by now, that mean no helmet is now needed, an equally hot idea for me, to be honest.

How does that feel though? Would you just feel nothing, if your mind has been erased or whatever, not knowing anything until a command was issued, and then obey it? Would you even be aware of your surroundings? Presumably either your visual processes arent wiped out, or how will you be able to see to carry out said orders? With a full helmet, it would be possible to use some sort of camera system, but otherwise… and the Graybot look clearly doesnt use that lol!

Just how blank can you make the human mind? I dont really know, can hypnosis take you down that road? You can influence thoughts by the use of it, thats for sure, as a beneficiary of hypnotherapy in a big way, I know that, and am amazed by the results. But thats more about slipping into a trance, than any form of mind wiping, lets face it.  Mind control of sorts, yes, you could definitely say that, but brainwashing by hypnosis, I cant see it somehow. As I see it, hypnosis can affect the brain, but not wipe it completely. But can hypnosis take you to a point where you think you’ve been brainwashed?

I dont know, maybe someone who knows might comment here? Yes, I’d love to feel the sensation of being totally brainwashed and empty, but would prefer the chance of deciding if I like it before its made permanent lol! Silver robot suit a must if that is the plan btw! 😉 So, if any hypnotist is prepared to let me experience that totally empty mind, or there is a scientist out there who wants to do it by more ‘exciting’ means, then give me a shout! Sadly online hypnosis doesnt work with me, plenty have tried. One on one, I go under very quickly, so I’m told. Clearly the scientist method would need my prescence lol, chance would be a fine thing!

Ah, the video. Given dear James is the one regular commenter here, I’ll give him a video treat, with the programme this is taken from.  Though looking at the Dalek design, this isnt from a recent show.

You took the words right out…

Gives a clue to the video, though this is about something a bit more than taking words out of your mouth.

http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/134682-hackers-backdoor-the-human-brain-successfully-extract-sensitive-data

Mind, as this article does point out, the success rate was somewhere between 10 and 40% in various tests, so its hardly yet at the point of scariness, but give them time, and I suspect…those numbers will go up lol. The original idea for this was to provide a brain-computer interface for those unable to use a computer by more traditional means.

But of course, anything that links the human mind to a computer offers other options, especially to those unscrupulous folk who might be tempted to extract information that way. And that led to this experiment, clearly. Of course, if you have some idea of what you’re involved in, its a whole different matter to a covert attack on your mind, but… and as I say, efficiency results are hardly dramatic yet, but again…

Still, this is still not strictly mind control, these people arent being made to do something they dont want to, well not literally anyway. Strictly they are, giving up private information to people they would rather not know it! And of course, for those inclined like me, it still wouldnt be the computer controlling your mind, or transforming your body into obedient robot lol! Again, probably in time they will, just a matter of how long I suspect?

Oh, and yes, before you ask, I love the headset, would love to give it a try, with or without controlling a computer while wearing it. And as for knowing that it was trying to seek details hidden within my mind, well its a mind control fetishist’s dream, isnt it? Helmet would still be better than headset lol!

The video, well a few months ago I promised some Meatloaf, and finally, here it is.
