cyborgs (including Scott Kelly)

If you needed another reason to take an interest in Neurosis (and if you haven't already, what are you waiting for?), wander over to Hellbound.ca, where Justin Nortin asks guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Scott Kelly why he has called himself "a self-made psychedelic cyborg."

And, speaking of cyborgs, thanks to the International Association of the Fantastic in the Arts mailing list, I discovered that the term cyborg is now 50 years old. Wow. Get the dish from The Atlantic, "The Man Who First Said 'Cyborg,' 50 Years Later."

If that wasn't enough cyborg (and who can ever really get enough cyborg?), there's a new online journal up called Cyborg Subjects. And just so you don't think I forgot about the music, here's am intriguing little Cyborg Subjects article called "DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC VIOLINS? Music and the Posthuman."

(I'm not going to bother denying my cyborg fixation. But I also like robots. And metal. And cats. Teleporters would be cool if someone could just get around to figuring that tech out.)
