Summer of the android!

Can’t help but notice a theme this summer: robots! In addition to “Android Karenina,” which I read and wrote about last week, here are some other machines:

Broken Bells – “Ghost Inside” with Christina Hendricks

(An arm and a leg…get it?)

Janelle Monae – ArchAndroid

This video is from 2008 for “Many Moons” off “Metropolis.” “ArchAndroid” is the second and third suite in the four-suite concept project, pushing forward into the unknown.

More futuristic videos or “short films” are in the works featuring android alter-ego Cindi Mayweather.

So I count it as a 2010 summer phenomena too!
