In watching the first episode of All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace I became mesmerized by the shifting, laser like movement of Ayn Rand’s eyes in the interview sequence. It lulled me into a trance, mumbling zombie-like “Must make animated GIF… Must make animated GIF… Must make animated GIF… Must make animated GIF… “

Was it these eyes that lulled in Alan Greenspan? I had no idea of the breadth and reach of Rand.

I recall that a copy of “Atlas Shrugged” was one of the many titles lodged in the basement shelves of books in my parent’s house, but I dont think I read it. Why was the book there? Where my parents “in the circle”?

Those eyes, those eyes, those eyes…

  1. I saw your awesome GIF yesterday.

    Today, I finally got to see All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace on the YouTube. Curtis’ documentary would seem to offer a huge selection of ripe material for some mind boggling animated GIFs.

    But you Cogdog, grabbed the gold ribbon freakish moment of the program. Well done!
