WestWorld aka My World

Written on September 11, 2006 by Kevin.

Have you ever seen the movie West World? Sometimes I feel like I am in that movie. For those who have never seen it; there is an amusement park of robots that you are able to shoot and kill or otherwise interact with. Each night, the park technicians pick them up and repair them making them ready for the next day of battle. The movie turns evil when one of the robots attempts to kill some of the park people and all hell breaks loose.

While cleaning up Rylan's mess in the kitchen last night, this movie came to mind and I began to think about the fact that I am one of the technicians. Each night, I clean up Rylan's mess so that the next day, all is ready for him to do it over again. This is just one of the job duties that parent's have to go through. Like it or not, this is what we signed up for.

On a side note, for those who haven't seen the movie, check it out. It's a classic in my book and certainly great torture material against my wife. I grew up watching this movie despite it coming out nearly 10 years before I was born. I wonder how Rylan would respond to such an old movie when he gets older.
