Hey, it’s a bonus stop for Mason Johnson’s “Sad Robot Stories” book tour!

It is in fact a stop by the Weeklings arts-and-culture magazine, where Mason has penned a guest essay about the '80s sci-fi thriller Cherry 2000 and what this may or may not have to do with his adolescent sexual yearnings for robots.
