On The Tenth Day of Christmas, Mr Robot Hacks Gave To Me…

It’s the tenth day of our Christmas Countdown, so today’s post is gonna be short and sweet, I mean we don’t mind wasting your bosses time, but the weekend is yours, right!

While Mr Robot Hacks imagines this is what it’s like in Elliot’s head…

Ninth - Elliot mental

For once, we’re gonna stop our drunken monkey minds swinging from branch to branch and let Youtube user, movie-lover, Mr Robot fan and all-round jolly good egg, Ryan Hollinger do the talking…

After yesterday’s muthafunkin’ uplifting post got us thinking about how music may help Elliot and his many mental disorders, we stumbled across Ryan’s brilliant video Life Like A Computer.

After watching it a tenth time, we realised it covers so much useful ground and helps you see Mr Robot with a fresh pair of eyes; from anxiety disorders to social engineering to the nihilism of the media and anti-social side of social media. It’s a highly intelligent and well-made video. Thanks, Ryan.

He’s not the only one to see the similarities betwixt Mr Robot and John Carpenter’s They Live, which we’ve written about before in our S02E07 recap and also in this real quick post on how we all already live in a prison. Read it again and remind yourself of happy days… and weep!

S02E07: Recap Part 2.0

We’ll be back tomorrow with another cheery Advent Calendar window into Elliot’s world! Y’all come back now!

And please share this video, it helps us lots and may help others, too…
