WCDT strips 3711 to 3715 (2nd-6th April 2018)
« on: 01 Apr 2018, 15:07 »

Okay, I got teh feeling from Friday's strip that we've reached teh end of teh current part of teh Clinton-Brun-Elliott triangle arc. Jeph may choose to resume it this coming week but it is equally possible, in my view, that he might choose to revisit otehr arcs or even do something new. What do you think?

Personally, I would like for him to go back to where we left off with Faye. tehre's no hurry about having her come to any realisations but it would be interesting to see last night's 'Nah, can't be' coming up against her and Bubbles continual flirting!

Alternately, maybe do something with Marten and Claire. For example, why not do a date with no dialogue at all? Just four to six panels a strip for a week in which all teh communication is by setting and body language? Don't ask me why but I think it would be an interesting exercise in emotional art.

I would love to see Melon try to help Roko with her problems... emphasis on the word try. There's about 42 different ways that could turn out, and it would be a fun way to explore both of their personalities, as well as maybe getting a little of the backstory of how they know each other.

Every comic she's in, I become further convinced that Melon is not a post-singularity AI, but just a very advanced iteration of Cleverbot.

That's not unheard of.  There was a cook at a summer camp who liked to rub mud on his ass among other proclivities.  Perhaps Melon can impart the same wisdom that a mixed can of vegetables did.

The more I see of Melon and Roko's interactions, the more I'm convinced that they're siblings in some AI-specific way. Melon is so much the sweet baby sister in this strip that it practically jumps out of the page and shouts at me!

It's nice that Roko has been able to confide in Melon; it's obvious that doing so was hard and embarrassing; note Roko's body language in panel 1. I find myself wondering if whether Jeph is writing a story about confronting an embarrassing (if extremely non-bizarre, compared to others) personal kink and trying to find someone who can at least understand her needs.

Meanwhile, I'm getting the impression that Melon literally is so synthetic in her mindset that she doesn't really see organic life as kindred at all. There are the occasional minds to interact with but, mostly, they're just bags of carbohydrates to act as props in her life-story.

Todays comic is weird in so many ways, I'm not sure if I think it's disturbing or genius.
Also: is Rokko wearing a workout outfit? Do  robots have to do workout to keep their artificial muscles in shape just like we do?

Roko seems to be the most humanophilic AI in the comic, as far as I can tell. At least insofar as she mimics human behaviours, including fainting and touch sensitivity. At this point, it's hard not to see her lifestyle as a genuine desire to be as human as possible. It's be interesting to know how much that desire is conscious or unconscious.

I think she's great. As a way of exploring the differences between humans and AI, having a character in one camp trying to fit into the other is a really good way of highlighting similarities and conflicts. I don't know where Jeph intends to take it, but there are a lot of possibilities.

Just maybe - somewhere in the middle ground - Roko will meet a certain human who has stated that he is trying to understand AI's as much as possible? I don't know what would come of that meeting either - but again, there would be a number of possibilities!

This might be just me, but I find that the more Melon appears, the less I like her.

It might be the off-the-wall nature or that she's so eccentric, but every time she's in a comic her likeability drops five points.

Again, that's probably just me.

To describe it in the vocabulary of that site, Melon is applying for the job of Manic Pixie Dream Girl, but she's just got a little too much CloudCuckoolander in the way to pull off the required meet cute and establish a relationship.

Maybe Melon is secretly an AI sociologist/psychologist and she uses a number of similar but slightly different remotely controlled chassis to prod at people's perceptions and social boundaries?

Either that or Jeph forgot. Maybe it's part of the plot?

I guess that's the reason I (almost) never tell my friends my kinks. Because then they could become 'beneficial friends' who are able to gratify you sexually while it means nothing to them. As in 'Oh, it's only that, I can do that to you if you like'.

She read an article (see Jeph's footnote here, and the previous day's strip, where Bubbles says "I may have read an article...").

If that's a squirrel, it's a little bitty squirrel. 

Squirrel pups aren't usually found on the ground and unmoving unless some sort of trauma has already befallen them.

I know that feeling, Elliot...feeling like you're watching one person you like get together with another person you like. For me they actually got together for a while. And I'm not particularly jealous, but it was just such a unique sense of pain/loss. (Also, this was high school, and emotions were a lot for me.)

I think he is confident because he's legit not trying anything. He really is just offering to walk with her.

This. Clinton is too nice to be devious.

Poor Elliot, too...

If that's a squirrel, it's a little bitty squirrel. 

Squirrel pups aren't usually found on the ground and unmoving unless some sort of trauma has already befallen them.

Maybe it got its ass kuck by crows.
To be fair, squirrels of any age aren't usually found unmoving on the ground. But the young'uns aren't strong enough to handle a fall from a power line to the pavement. Then, of course, there was also someone's theory that Momo might have been involved.

Hey, I can't recall, is there anythining canonical in how AI's get their names? It occurrs to me that without a family history something like "O'Malley" would not likely be inherited, so where did it come from?

I'm pretty sure I remember Bubbles saying that Bubbles was a nickname her squad gave her, and she kept it to honor them.  Other than that, I don't think we know.  It's possible O'Malley took the name in tribute to a mentor or friend, or maybe he wanted to be a cop and decided that O'Malley sounded like a good Cop Name.

I feel bad for Elliot, but I still think we're seeing all the materials we need to ship him and Roko so there's hope.

Seriously? You're shipping Elliot & Roko two people we have never even seen speak to each other?
