Good Morning, Monday, 7th June 2021

Howdy folks! How are we all doing this morning?

Yesterday after work I didn’t do any word wrangling but I did get my goals for June written down, my next week schedule sorted, and a couple of posts done on my Buy Me A Coffee page. I did brainstorm while on my break at work, and made a compute of notes for other projects when I got home.

At the moment I’ve got a few bits and pieces going on behind the scenes so my focus has been on those a little, but what’s going on there will be of great help going forward.

I’ve got my first Covid jab today, so I’m not planning much after that just in case it wipes me out. I’ve heard people have had differing reactions so I’m just going to wait and see if I have one or any at all.

Something I really need to do is find more places to submit work too. That is something I’ve severely failed at this year and I need to step it up.

Right, time for a little breakfast and then I’m going to get some words written before I have to leave.

Have an awesome day, Folks!

Last nights movie. Loved this in my teens and it stands up well ☺️

How Sci-Fi Films Have Influenced Me Pt.2 Robots

I remember first seeing Robocop and thinking ‘WOW’ and I loved the idea of it. The whole concept of a used human body lingering onto life being made into an uncompromising law enforcement officer really blew my mind away. There was no arguing with Robo. If he saw the law being broken then he would deal with it instantly, and efficiently. Peter Weller played the role magnificently as well. I’m not too sure about the re-make being planned though. I was quite looking forward to the idea of it when Michael Fassbender was apparently going to star but from what I’ve heard he isn’t anymore. So I’m a little worried about how it’ll work out.
Me and a friend used to argue  discuss who was better, Robocop or The Terminator. Then I saw Terminator 2 and The Terminator won (sorry Robo)
The Terminator was as uncompromising as Robocop was. In the first two films The Terminator was unrelenting. Nothing was going to stop it achieving its mission, well, unless your name was Kyle Reese. Arnie played it perfectly, he was born to play the role. The third film was, well no comment lol but I did enjoy the fourth film in the series.
No other films really caught my attention when it comes to robots. None really made me think about the troubles that robots might have until I saw I, Robot. Then I saw Blade Runner which I’m still not sure about.  I need to watch it a few times to really get into it I think.

Robots have never really grabbed my attention though. I’m more fascinated by mech suits. The type of thing that is in Avatar, those really fascinate me. I have a few really good ideas of how to play with them in my fiction.  Come to think of it Robocop was not a robot either, would he not be considered a cyborg???   Maybe I’ve not seen enough movies with robots in but from what I have seen they havent touched me on the emotional, or inspirational side outside of The Terminator.  Any recommendations are welcome 😀
