Unnerving consideration of artificial
Shrewdly imagined and persuasively made, "Ex Machina" is a spooky piece of speculative fiction that's completely plausible, capable of both thinking big thoughts and providing pulp thrills. But even saying that doesn't do this quietly unnerving film full justice.

Resolved Question: Why do people think Spike
Searching Google for the song "Hello Mother, Hello Father" (aka Hello Muddah, hello faddah) results in a huge list of lyric-spam websites suggesting that the song was written by Spike Jonze. In reality it's a novelty song written by Allan Sherman years ago. I can't figure out how it got started. The lyric websites are so overwhelming that it's actually impossible to get any real information about the subject. Why and how did it become associated with Spike Jonze? Is it a hoax? Did someone google-bomb the phrase? I can't find any evidence that he actually covered the song.
