Say what you will about the hypnotic corruption of our youth, or the over-sexualization of pop music, or the robot agenda... Beyonce is just plain adorable. Just try and analyze that commercial without crackin a smile. Wanna hear something really crazy? The point in the commercial where she screams in sync with a game character(you can hear it), in effect, becoming one of the game characters, happens at exactly 0:23. Such pleasant distractions feed our hypnosis. A spoonful of sugar...
...and I suppose the split-second screenshot of the robot-building mini-game -given the last post's analysis of the Beyonce-bot- was just a happy coincidence. Beyonce actually messed up on this part of the game; if you hit the timing right, the robot turns red.
The Rhythm Heaven Red Robot showed up again when I tried to listen to my new favorite online music service, Pandora (Vouch).
Can't escape it. It's worth noting that Nintendo's two big moneymakers are now the new DSi and the Wii, the new I and the We, the new eye... the we is the new eye....
"...The single new feature [two mini-cameras] promised in the DSi — as in "eye," or "individualization" — sounded like a throwaway gimmick..."
Same red robot, same golden eyes... I just keep telling myself;
it's just a coincidence, it's just a coincidence, it's just a coincidence...

(Robby) Robots and Angels
"Morbius' nineteen-year-old daughter Altaira (Anne Francis) appears. Like Shakespeare's Miranda, she has grown up not knowing any man except her father and is therefore very curious to learn about human relations. Several officers and men are more than willing to help with her education, but Adams keeps them in line, much to Altaira's puzzlement.Morbius tells Adams he has been reconstructing the history and science of the Krell, the long-extinct natives, who had possessed a technology and society one million years ahead of that of humanity, but had all died 200,000 years before in a single night of inexplicable destruction. He shows his guests what he calls a "plastic educator". His first use of it put him into a coma for almost two days, but also doubled his intellect, enabling him to build Robby and the rest of the wondrous devices. Morbius also takes them on a tour of a vast cube-shaped underground Krell installation, 20 miles on a side and powered by 9,200 thermonuclear reactors, which has been operating and self-repairing since the extinction of the Krell. When asked its purpose, Morbius is evasive."
Kylie Minogue, again. Nice shades.
"Apparently, the 23-year-old singer was so desperate to duplicate Beyonce’s success with her latest video, the Timberlake-fueled 'Love Sex Magick,' that she managed to infiltrate Beyonce’s wardrobe — jacking animal-print catsuits, window treatment-inspired shades, and blond afro wigs left and right. The Queen of Crunk & B [Ciara] even recruited an insider from Mrs. Carter’s [Beyonce's] camp — a shady backup dancer/informant — to feed her stolen moves."
Beyonce caught in a web and Ciara doin the glove thing
I would've embedded it, but all versions I found on YouTube were embed-blocked. Anyways, here's Behind-the-Scenes clip explaining SuperC, along with PimP1420's analysis of Ciara's vid . . .
demonic robotic posession and rebirth
“When I’m performing, I’m just having fun, letting go and not even trying to think too much about what’s going on . . .You become another person. Another person inside of me totally surfaces when it comes to performing - Ciara, buh-bye, all right Super C. Super C . . . that is my alter ego. Super C doesn’t hold back. She is definitely aggressive. She goes hard. Super C can do some magical and funky things . . . She dances to the 10th power. She does everything to the 10th power.”
Sounds a lot like Beyonce's reasoning behind the Sasha Fierce persona. And beyond the conceptual copycating; why now? Why would two major artists in the same field push the same gimmick at the same time? Just coincidence, right? Beyonce on her split persona:
"Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I'm working and when I'm on the stage . . . I have someone else that takes over when it's time for me to work and when I'm on stage, this alter ego that I've created that kind of protects me and who I really am."
The two artists share the same costume designer; Thierry Mugler, the man behind Sasha Fierce's famous robotic concert costumes previously mentioned in my last post (and the Wonder Woman - Cheetah red/blue outfit below).
Beyonce and Kylie Minogue as matching fembots
From Metropolis; a robot named Mary
"My references were clearly inspired from shows that I’ve actually seen. It goes to show how creative we can be and how close the worlds are. I did my first video with my metal outfit. I was inspired by Thierry Mugler. Now, from my understanding, Beyonce is using Thierry Mugler for her tour. It just is what it is."-Ciara to Honey Magazine
Nice name drop. Thierry Mugler was responsible for Beyonce's, goat-headed, heart-headlight breastplate from her new album's liner photos -easily the most eye-catching ensemble on that photoshoot- as well as Madonna's world-famous "pointy bra" costume. The black-and-white photography was color-treated to emphasize the flames and the red and blue paint job.
Shia Lebouf. Again.
