Porter Robinson: "Sad Machine" and its impact on "The Iron Horse" · 4:42pm Dec 28th, 2018

So, I'm going to see Porter Robinson live tonight in Houston! His song "Sad Machine" is probably one of the biggest early influences on The Iron Horse and its tone, so today I'd like to post about the song and how it defined Turing Test's voice as I hear it...

Who doesn't like holiday traditions? · 10:11pm Dec 24th, 2018

Douglas Rain, voice of HAL 9000 from "2001: A Space Odyssey" has died · 2:12am Nov 12th, 2018

As a fan of all things robot and AI, I felt the need to reflect on one of the most iconic AI characters with one of the most iconic voices in all of cinema. HAL's influence runs deep; even 002's singular glowing eye was partly inspired by HAL's key feature. Thank you, Mr. Rain. Full story is here.

(waves) Yep. Still here! · 1:45am Oct 17th, 2018

Hello everyone! This is just a blog post to let you know that I am, in fact, still around. Also, more importantly, I am writing another story. It's just been slow-going.
