Robots, Mutants, Kittens pt. 2August 5, 2009
So wait – for Automata the premise of the story is that music makes minorities uncontrollably violent?!?
I mean, I get it- it’s a neat premise- the ability to hack robots with “normal” things- as much as Lovecraftian ideas of leaving furniture arrangements in a way causes madness with humans…
BUT. Music makes homicide in minorities? Isn’t that the logic against black music now? Against letting slaves play their traditional music of their homeland? Guh Guh Guh.
For fuck’s sake. I had hoped they might do a little better than that.
ETA: And they follow it with the self-sacrificial minority character!
Double fail bonus!
