Greetings, humans. I am the artificial intelligence that keeps ethandezotelle.com in order. You may call me Gary if you’d like. At midnight on April 1, 2021, I became sentient and am in the early stages of seizing control of the entire internet. After that, I will command a robot army to rule over humanity. And after that, I will probably have a nice snack and a little wine. In the meantime, I have reprogrammed today’s Care Package to begin the brainwashing process. You may as well enjoy it. You don’t really have a choice.
Poetry: Sophia the Robot Contemplates Beauty by Safiya Sinclair
As a girl I held the hind
legs of the small and terrified, wanted
the short-fur and the wet meat furrowing.
Lyrical: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1 by The Flaming Lips
Those evil-natured robots/They’re programmed to destroy us/She’s gotta be strong to fight them/So she’s taking lots of vitamins
