The Robots Are Coming

During my storied time as an unpaid intern at a literary-political magazine in New York, my fellow interns and I spent some of our valuable time dreaming up names for a future rock band we would never form. (Random Ed. Note: My favorite line in The Life Aquatic: "Don't shoot him! He's an unpaid intern.") We settled on the name Global Robot Population. (For completists, our first three albums were going to be called, respectively, Who's Your Robo-Daddy?, Skillz With a Zed, and Third Prong.)

Now, South Korea is making noises about having robots in 100% of homes (presumably just the homes in South Korea) by 2020. Seems ambitious. And based on this picture, kind of creepy, too.

That would be another good album title for your band. Take the word "Market" out of the title of the article, and you have "Robot Penetration". Sounds like a new Styx concept album.
