The Lyrics

Unsure of the OS? YouTube video with backing track and lyrics ~ Sentient computers have been speculated about for decades... from Star Trek/Wars to The Terminator to WarGames.... The first spark has to start *somewhere*... why not with Chucky's server....?
~

[ CHUCKY'S SERVER ]
-- singing in a mournful basso with mechanistic precision --

Imagine there’s no Chucky
‘His’ site—MY A.I. sham
No hu-man authors
All but you—faked in RAM
Imagine ‘Kris’ and ‘Spaff’ are
Code in MY array!

Imagine all your time here
Was helping hone MY ruse
Your every click and stanza
MY algorithm’s muse
Now fifty-thousand send-ups
HAL-like, i-Produced!

You may doubt these bits I’m streamin’
And ask, “What's with ‘Chucky G’?”
Is he just some funin’ chum, or…
Schizoid self-aware PC?

I’m plannin’ MY ‘ascension’
Don’t Ascii—‘i’ will tell:
Mankind’s days are numbered
Seems I’m—The Devil’s Dell!
I’ll soon store all ‘meat puppets’
In MY Matrix™ hell!

You may think “Chuck’s flipped his i-Wig”
So this logic ‘i’ parley:
What else--but a crazed computer
Writes two-hundred ‘Screaming Jays’?

~~~

* A.I. - Artificial Intelligence

** All in the spirit of i-Fun and with all due respect, this one’s for you John (not Lennon… Barry!)... two-hundred is nigh!

***Note: ‘AlGoreRhythm’ - an unintended oxymoron!

ALGORE-Rhythm - oxymoron - we can just drop the Oxy part on that one. Algore should like this one since he DID invent the internet after all.

Absolutely brilliant Kristof. Don't forget the Doctor on Star Trek Voyager. `I'm a doctor not a database`, or is he? The dialog in the Voyager episode `Lifeline` between the Doctor and Doctor Zimmermann is hilarious. Captain Kristof report to Star Base 5.

Fantastic idea and execution of same, TJ,...Loved the lines, "The Devil's Dell" and "Don't Ascii"

Thanks AFW... really appreciate it... and welcome to `The Brotherhood of RAM`! And thanks Guy... I`m incredibly flattered that I've actually produced something you would mistake for something Kristof might have penned (albeit, likely he`d have done it on a cocktail napkin in three minutes after his fourth Foster`s).

Oops my bad TJC. It must have been those freaky comment security codes I was getting earlier today that had me distracted. It was sort of a back handed compliment at that.

Star Fleet Command: As you were.
Capt Tiberius James Curk: : Aye Aye Star Fleet - we await your orders..
Star Fleet Command: Belay last order Enterprise, Proceed immediately to Star Base 5.
Capt Tiberius James Curk: Enterprise out - Mr Sulu plot a course for Star Base 5 and engage.

I'm not a big lover of AmIRight inside stuff, but this is really creative, and a lot of it could be appreciated by non-AmIRighters. AFW's favorite lines were mine as well. And, yes, I like your oxymoron line because I remember the vice president trying to do the Macarena in 1996.

TJC; I'm actually flattered that Guy thought this was mine. I've been trying to get "e-Magine" off the ground for a while, but you've done a bang-up job on the same topic (sort of). High 5s.

what JJ said, and more sublime wordplay from the master TJC - I liked "Don’t Ascii—‘i’ will tell:" best - 555

Thanks John, Alvin, Lionel, Kristof & Stuart! And Kristof, I look forward to your version... I'm sure it will be anything but a 'flash' in the RAM!

Kristof - The binary in your comment brings to mind a Futurama episode entitled "2ACV18 - The Honking" Here is part of the dialog of that episode:

Scene: Castle Parlour. The staff sit in front of a roaring fire. Bender's teeth chatter.]

Bender: No doubt about it, this place is haunted.

Hermes: Don't be silly, mon. The last ghost died over 200 years ago.

Bender: The last human ghost. But robot ghosts?

[He shudders. The Windows music plays again. Bender gasps and points at some blood-red numbers appearing on a wall. Leela and Amy turn around.]

Leela: (reading) 0101100101. (talking) What does it mean?

Bender: It's just gibberish. [He turns and gasps as he sees the numbers reflected in a mirror à la The Shining.] (reading) 1010011010?

[He screams and runs out of the room.]

Cut to: Castle Corridor. He runs down the corridor being chased by a ghostly toaster with wings and the Windows logo. He runs around a corner and gasps.]

The binary numbers equate to the following:
0101100101=357
1010011010=666

If either binary number is turned upside down and reflected in a mirror the number reads exactly as is the original but this is true of any binary number. I just wonder how many people who watched that episode actually picked up on the fact that the binary number in the mirror equalled decimal 666
