Who filled my robots with blood?

Thanks for posting this. It’s a nice little commentary on how many employers treat their human employees, whether they’re mining coal or playing major league ball.

Late stage capitalism indeed

Work it harder
Make it better
Do it faster
Makes us stronger
More than ever
Hour after
Our work is
Never over

The first 2/3 of that was wonderful and even meaningful. But the gore at the end ruined it.

If they were actually built for real it would be cool. CG, meh. Not sure how ironic or vicious it is to show robots doing things over and over, since it’s what they are designed to do.

In a way, that was oddly satisfying. I have to admit that at first glance, I thought that was an actual mechanical construct…yeah, I’m not very savvy.

So does fault lie with the one who sped things up or the robots for carrying on without question?


#10

No, the fault lies with us watching it and enjoying it.

transmission fluid

It’s more like transmission confetti.

When it becomes confetti-like is way past when you need to change it.
