The three best chunks of prose (not written by me) I have read recently. (Some possibly NSFW.)
“The first few generations of fuckbots will most likely be available only to the superwealthy and/or those willing to spend a small fortune on a visit to a robot brothel.”
– Dan Savage on the future of love in Savage Love.
“So we recorded some test episodes, and pretty quickly it was clear that each of us would have a role to play: Merlin would be the funny one, Scott would be the smart one and I would be the not funny one. Or Scott would be the witty one, Merlin the famous one and I would be the straight man – that is to say, I’d just sort of keep quiet except when I’m laughing. Or maybe Merlin would be the clown, Scott the thinker and me the one with glasses. Sometimes, we switch it up and Merlin plays Figurehead, Scott Team Captain and me Dead Weight. Regardless, it was decided I should be the one with little or no self-esteem, and I’m okay with that.”
