In 1961, a computer sang a song for the first time.

Daisy Bell by Henry Dacre (1892)

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,

I’m half crazy all for the love of you.

It won’t be a stylish marriage -

I can’t afford a carriage.

But you’d look sweet upon the seat

Of a bicycle built for two.



Yup, that’s the song HAL sings in 2001 when he’s shutting down.

Robert W. Coburn :: The press snipe (on back) reads, “Before the days of the bicycle built for two – was the ped-cycle, and here are two young ladies about due for a fall from their high saddle. They’re Radio Pictures featured beauties, Roberta Gale and Rochelle Hudson, and they rode the thing – after a fashion – in a comedy.”, 1931 / source: Grapefruit Moon Gallery

      In all honesty, he should have seen this day coming. His voice just wasn’t drawing in enough money for him and his elderly mother. The night club was dear to his heart, yes, but there were other places that offered him more. How typical, he was always wanting more, more.

      As he packed up he looked out at the empty tables. He grew use to staying a bit later, if only to see his dear friend Lucina. A smile quirked as he thought about her, his eyes now scanning for her. He had to tell her– and to ask her.

      It was important to him.

  • Black: *stares at White*
  • Black's inner voice: She's the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. Tell her she's as gorgeous as a thousand sunsets. Tell her you need her help. Tell her to rescue you, and care for you, and, whatever you do, do not scream the word "poop" at the top of your lungs.
  • White: ...Black--
  • Black: I'M THE CONDUCTOR OF THE POOP TRAIN!
  • White: ....What?
  • Black's inner voice: It's over, idiot. You're going to die here and now, and the last words out of your mouth will have been "poop train".

“I found a woman version cover of “Bicycle built for two”, and it keeps…”

Who sang it, and where did you find it. Inquiring minds wish to know.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-IX_8cSW10  Dinah Shore. I looked her up wondering if she was maybe a historical lesbian or bisexual woman but….no. Nothing on that matter to be found. She does have a huge annual wlw golf meetup named after her……but apparently that’s just the name of the golf place where they annually meet or something. Just a giant coincidence.
