Playing the role of a robot

I dont think I ever got to play a robot on stage, not that I remember doing so, anyway. Lets face it, school plays are unlikely to include such an element, and most amateur dramatic stuff is based around doing things that dont need too many scene changes, or dramatic changes in costume, ideally no changes at all!

Doesnt mean I’ve never played as one, because I have, both in coherent thought, and under the power of hypnosis, but lets face it, I wouldnt resist the command to think I was a robot, lets face it. Sadly, I’ve never got to do dress up for any of these roles, its just been me, as a robot, but anyway…Yes, I’d love the chance to wear something like the Metropolis, or Gort look. Robbie the Robot look might be a lot of fun to do, but a bit more complex to set up, I guess?

The other thing I have done a few times, is do interviews about the whole robot thing of mine, though ironically I think they have all been for North American companies, but none involved a trip to the US. Ah well… It seems to be a subject that fascinates some TV people, though I dont know of any sci-fi series yet where they have actually turned humans into robots, I must say. Doll House is probably as close as they’ve got in a real life series, I would guess? Not that I would mind playing a constructed robot (as in Star Wars, or Buck Rogers) given the chance. I would add the robot in The Orville, but I suspect that was that modern ‘delight’, CGI?

This week, I saw another company asking for people who have played, or role played as robots at Fembot Central. It does seem to be focused on the sex side of things, more than anything else, but its not of concern to me, because they only want contact from people in LA, or NYC, and I’m not! In truth, probably wouldnt have worked for me, because they seem to want the sex element more than anything, and sex just doesnt interest me at all. But would I have offered my services, if in those cities, well, maybe?

Yes, my dream modelling job would be as a robot, at one of those convention things somewhere. Unlikely to happen, especially now, but you never know, I guess. Its fair to say at least, I could roleplay a robot easily, and willingly. Well, if they want to make it compulsory lol, I wouldnt say no, but…

So tonights video involves one of the better pieces of robot roleplay within a music video.

A week in the life of…?

Last night, here in the UK, Channel 4 presented, for want of a better term, a documentary about a white woman, with, shall we say, strong views, spending a week as a Muslim. No, I didnt see it, didnt know about it until after the event, and even if I had, I probably would have avoided it, these things tend to be ‘road crash’ TV at the best of times, basically because thats what the TV people want. As it happened, events took over, as it was being filmed in Manchester, just at the time of the Arena bombing. This showed the sad side of too many people towards Muslim people, which presumably came as a surprise to the woman, and the TV company. Unfortunately, it showed what Muslim people have to put up with so often, whereas she only faced it for a few days. So yes, the few terrorists create the wrong image, but I guess thats what they want to do. Of course, as white supremacists have shown, they’re just as bad!

Yes, that program wouldnt get the same effect if I’d been in her place, but of course, in these days, thats not what TV people want!

Me, I wonder what it would be like to spend a week in the life of a chorus line dancer, like my past life self, either now, or in the 1930’s, as she did. Given that one thing Clara Johnson didnt pass on to me was any dancing skills, its never going to happen, but if I did have her talents, would be fascinating to know what life would be like, in either era.

Of course, the other thing that would appeal to me would be a week in the life of a robot. Fine, given that at present, robot technology is not forward enough for that really to happen, I suppose I could do nothing more than a theoretical life as a robot, but that might be quite something. Even more so if it came with a chrome bodysuit!

I know, neither are really going to happen, or not in my lifetime at least. But a week in my life, as a Muslim, well, maybe…?

The video, some vintage Beatles. Seemingly from the later years, judging by their styles. A few famous faces from outside the group here too!

A chance to dress up?

I know, I know, its a bit early for Halloween, but I was short of material for tonight, and someone on one of the Forums asked about people’s dressing up plans for the big night, which inspired this.

Its fair to say that in the US, Halloween is a massive affair, and has been, for as long as I can remember. Here in the UK, not the same. Indeed, when I was young, I think the whole event barely happened over here, let alone to any major degree. Nowadays, it is a bit bigger over here, but still not in any major way, compared to the US. I’ve only ever once seen the build up to it in the US, 2 years ago, and thats as close as I’ve got.

No, I have no idea whether I would have dressed up if I’d been there (would anyone even take any notice in Hollywood?), but it might have been fun, and tempting to do. Though yes, finding a good robot outfit, at short notice might have been hard. Mind, by then, a flapper outfit might have worked better for me, anyway. I’m sure some of them were scary lol, and I certainly would be in a short dress lol! πŸ˜›

Currently, given the state of my back, and stuff, the safest, scariest look I could probably do for Halloween, would be Davros, of Daleks fame, though I’ve no idea if that era of Dr Who really caught on in the US? But yes, a look like this would definitely be something I’d love to do for Halloween!

And yes, this year, I could do it, if anyone wants to design something, as it is a non working day for me, being a Tuesday!

Oh fine, Metropolis robot, with suitable back support would be even better for me, but, practically…

Maybe some day I will get to experience the full US Halloween thing, though I’m not quite sure when! But yes, if I did, I would so want to dress up myself!

The video? Well, I couldnt think of anything really suitable, so by slipping the flapper idea into the blog, I’m going to use this! So 1920’s darlings!

Nobody loves a robot when she’s sixty!

Alright, having done a sadly serious piece over on the other blog, lets do something very silly here, just to try and cheer me up!

One of the things about all the various forums I’m on, is that there are an awful lot of regulars, who have been there a while, like me, but every so often, someone new arrives, and makes themselves known. Quite often, they stay for a short period of time, then never show up again. Well, some stay, but you get my drift…?

Yes, one of these moments struck at Fembot Central in the last week or so, some guy arrived ‘loudly’, announcing he was looking to own a fembot, and all that sort of stuff. No, before you get any ideas, he doesnt mean it for real, all he is looking for is probably a one off role play, and that will almost certainly be that. Given that under normal circumstances, time for myself is pretty much zero, and the fact that I did all of that sort of thing 10-15 years ago, I passed it by.

So anyway, the next day, I have one of those ‘private message’ things from him, asking if I was interested in his offer. It may be something to do with the fact that there are very few females active on there, other than those who charge ‘considerable sums’ for their services, movies, or phone line wise, so he decided to try his luck.

Basically I replied, saying that if it was just for role-play, then no, I wouldnt be interested. If he really wanted me to live as a fembot, or he was actually going to transform me into one, to sell himself accordingly. To be fair to him, he said that maybe that was an idea, and could we chat on Skype, or something? Yes, that wasnt the answer I was expecting.

So anyway, fair is fair, at this point, before he got ‘over excited’, I thought I’d better point out one thing to him, my age. Lets be fair, its not fair for a guy to expect a pretty young thing, as a fembot in his life, and then get an old maid like me, even just on text chat. Yes, got a message back, which wasnt actually ageist, but made it very clear I didnt fit the perfect fembot image of his dreams! Not that I blame him, unless he was going to actually transform me, but besides all that…

Before you ask, no, he hasnt logged into Fembot Central since then, anyway! Whether it was me, and the situation, or just the lack of nubile, non professional (paying) young fembots, who knows? All I know is, seemingly a fembot who is nearly 60 isnt going to get love!

Tonights video. Well I knew this song, but had no idea what I would find for it on You Tube, but this seemed a good option!

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.

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! πŸ˜›

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! πŸ˜‰

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!

I am your automatic lover!

No, seriously, I’m not, and you wouldnt want me as that either, not in my current human form at least. Yes, among other things, I’m 59, and if you want a fantasy sexbot, she’s going to look a lot younger than that! But fine, something happened today, that… well…I might get to find out what life as one is like! Oh fine, I wish!

Earlier this week, on Fembot Central, a request appeared from a TV company making a documentary about the current upgrades in sex dolls, and the challenge of creating a robot, that is almost human enough to be a partner for someone. In truth, I know most of the people there (to some degree, I dont blame them) treat anything like this with deep suspicion, and avoid talking to these people. Me, well, in my current human self, have no interest in sex, or emotions, but hey, anything fembot related, I’ll try to help.

So I have, and did. I spoke to the lady dealing with this research on the phone this morning, and in fact got a whole positive vibe to the whole thing. We spent about 40 minutes talking, and lets face it, I’m not seeking to ever have sex with a robot. Sex as a robot, now that might be fun, but with one, no, I think my days of sex, of my own volition are long gone!

Anyway, the chat continued, and it seems the company working on this development are based in San Diego. So I mentioned that I wouldnt mind seeing their place, and work, if possible when in California in May. So, said lady is going to check with the film unit working out of LA, and the company in San Diego, and I might be part of the action! No, I dont expect to be genuinely turned into a sexbot, but a woman can hope! Might get a makeover, just maybe, and then I could act the part, but…?

Oh fine, if they want to experiment on turning a human into a robot, I wont say no, mind! I suspect more likely the unit might let someone experience what life as a sexbot would be like (without the sex), that would be interesting in itself. To be fair to them, currently its in the very early stages of upgrading sex dolls, to sexbots.

So no, for now at least, I’m not going to say I’ve got that big US filming break just yet, but maybe, just maybe? And related to robots, pure heaven! I know, this is me, but…fingers crossed!

Right, video. This is a recent remix of a 70’s disco style song, and given I put up the original before, albeit about 6 years ago, lets roll with this. No, not sure which outfit I’d rather wear lol!

 

Just to add, if anyone reading this wants to help, or get involved themselves in anyway…

Raw TV are making a documentary looking at the evolving emotional and physical relationships between humans and robots. We are interested in speaking to people who have experienced genuine feelings towards robots, either emotional or sexual. Please get in touch with Carla on robots@raw.co.uk mid-April 2017.
