Thinking about robots

Once I posted the photo of the Fake Maria from Metropolis (previous post), I couldn't stop remembering other female robots in pop culture...

Fembots (from Austin Powers)

Rosie (from The Jetsons)

Cylons (from Battlestar Galactica)

Pris (from Blade Runner)

This post doesn't really have much to do with marketing or BUS 341, except that I wanted to show you all how easy it is to add multimedia content to your own blog posts.  Searching for the perfect images can be really addictive!

I love Battlestar! So enjoyed the insertion of women into it. Following the rhetorical "story" from Virgil's Aenied into the 70's (?), you can see the introduction of Judeo-christian encoding: Lost 13th Colony of Judea. The must recent nearly reasserts both modern egalitarianism, terror of technological dependance (medievalism), millennial survivalism, and the return of per-Christian mythic female. Apollo's sister is? Artemis (Diana) Goddess of the hunt, forest and moon. She takes the "Star Buck" roll.
P.S. Corn Nuts
Oh, it was real alright. I heard it on the radio and they had a cardboard standy that said something like "bust a nut today!" at Town Pumps. Laughed so hard almost split a rib...too bad I think Corn Nuts are gross. I'm sure someone knew but I think a lot of people must've been older and thought, "Oh, it must mean something like Busting a Move from MC Hammer!" Or the SNL Church Lady was involved. Double entendre is common, legal, but sometimes can go out of control
