---"People are so vulnerable and so willing to accept substitutes for human companionship in very intimate ways. I hadn’t seen that coming, and it really concerns me that we’re willing to give up something that I think defines our humanness: our ability to empathize and be with each other and talk to each other and understand each other. And I report to you with great sadness that the more I continued to interview people about this, the more I realized the extent to which people are willing to put machines in this role. People feel that they are not being heard, that no one is listening. They have a fantasy that finally, in a machine, they will have a nonjudgmental companion." --Sherry Turkle

In god we trust trailer is a fake. made only for a trailer competition, also although fake, it steals quite a lot from japaneses animated series evangelion.


Also posting film quaterly download links it's against the law since it's piracy and you're fomenting it. you must pay for the magz. I already sent a warning to Film Quaterly.

Thanks Anon.,

I knew that the trailer is a fake, but I liked it anyway. Also, I deleted the Film Quarterly link.
