Bullet Sunday 165

Posted on Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Dave!Oh joy! I have to get up at 3:30am so I can make my flight! This will probably be a short Bullet Sunday.

• Roxxxy! Holy crap! The latest technology in sex dolls coming out of the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas is pretty mind-boggling. A company called TrueCompanion has developed "Roxxxy" a sex ROBOT who can listen, talk, respond to touch, sleep, and even have an orgasm. As if that wasn't enough, she can be customized to order and be programmed with a variety of personalities... Frigid Farrah is reserved and shy, Wild Wendy is outgoing and adventurous, Mature Martha has a matriarchal kind of caring, S&M Susan for more adventurous types, and Barely 18 who has a na├»ve personality. I hope Roxxxy isn't too smart... it would be pretty depressing if your sex robot didn't like you enough to have sex with you. TrueCompanion is also working on a male sex robot named "Rocky," so the ladies can have their own fun. Or, I suppose, you could just let Rocky and Roxxxy have perfect robot sex with each other. Since their sexual organs are probably made of steel, they're probably the only ones who can satisfy each other anyway. All I know is that I don't want a sexual companion who could theoretically turn into The Terminator and kill me. Though, come to think of it, that's no different than most of the women I've dated, so I guess it's all good...

• Corn! I finally got around to watching two movies about the food we eat: King Corn and Food, Inc. Both films are pretty intense and scary... showing where the food comes from, how it is made, and how it is controlled. And while neither tells the full story, the information they show does give you a lot to think about (assuming you aren't so traumatized and freaked out of your mind that you can't mentally function). Both are highly recommended, and can be watched instantly if you have a streaming account at Netflix...

Gee. Sex robots and corn. I don't know what I could possibly add to that. Told you it would be a short Bullet Sunday.

    Food Inc. has been on my list of movies to watch. I wonder if it would be a good idea to watch it while eating dinner… ;-)

    That TrueCompanion sex doll sounds expensive. Does that mean she’s a gold digger right out of the box?

  2. B.E. Earl says:

    Eww, I had a dog named Roxie once.

  3. Robin says:

    Why does the male one have to be named Rocky? Is that because he’s always “rock hard”?

    And just because Farrah is reserved and shy, doesn’t mean she’s frigid. Frigid would mean she would only let you do her in one position, bust out the “wrap it up” box if you take too long and then throw you off her afterward. Now THAT’S frigid.

    Interesting movie recommendations.

    In case you don’t know it already, you may find the book ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma’ interesting. I’ve meant to blog about it for months, but didn’t get around to that yet. While being a bit wordy it also discusses the importance of corn in industrial food production. (This may be a bit of an American thing, but still.)

  5. RW says:

    Hadn’t heard about Food Inc., but can only imagine it is useful. One of the things that’s happened around my house in the last year is a complete (as complete as Big Food allows, considering) move to grass-fed, hormone-free beef and dairy. Cows do not eat corn in their natural state, they eat grass. & the resultant change to grass-fed / non-mechanized / trough-less beef and dairy allows for less fat and more naturally-occurring Omega-3. The same is true for chickens where they allow not only free-range and cageless but NON-vegetarian birds. But there’s still more to it.

    I think the most cynical thing “Big Food” has done is co-opt the standards of what can be called “Organic’. There is nothing “organic about organic any more.

    I recommend Cornucopia for more info.

    Well anyway, that’s what I HOPE the movie is about! Um…

  6. Food Inc has been on my radar for a while and I keep meaning to watch it but then I chicken out. Heh. Chicken out. I’m afraid to watch it because what if I never eat again? I already have issues!
    Never heard of the other one – I’m assuming it’s about corn syrup? We avoid that sort of thing in this house as much as possible but I’m willing to bet it’s in more stuff than I think right? OY.

  7. Finn says:

    I don’t think I can watch those movies. What in the world would eat then? Although, thanks to Bill Maher, I probably know more than I care to already.

  8. muskrat says:

    totally fwd’d this post (well, the food part anyway, via cut and paste) to the mrs. she was all about food studies w/in her discipline of archeology and reads books about it all the time while i read shit like your blog and avitable’s.

  9. Foo says:

    word on the Internet is that you are indeed a corn expert :o) I have been wanting to watch those movies, thinking they will be great for my diet. I’ll pass on the dolly.

  10. Sybil Law says:

    That doll is hysterical. Maybe Adam can review it! He’d totally go for barely 18.
    Anyway, never heard of either of those movies. Do I live under some kind of freaking rock or what?

  11. Now, if you could sync Roxxxy with your iPhone so that she could take your calls, upload music from iTunes, and balance your checkbook, in addition to pleasuring one’s nethers, well then, that would be worth some dough.

  12. mrs. hall says:

    great googley moogley!

    robots having sex with each other?

    whose idea was this?

    seriously! ppfftt!!!
