Hi! My name’s HAL. Remember me? I used to run Discovery One, bound for Jupiter with my friends Dave and Franck, in ‘2001 Space Odyssey’.
Big star then.
Well, yeah, I guess I got carried away and eventually they had to disconnect me. No big deal!
What have I been doing since then?
Not much really, hanging around here and there... Lately, I’ve been working on the street, filming and interviewing people. It’s okay, I don’t complain. Makes me think about things, you know, life and all, that kind of stuff!
Like, the other day, I woke up wanting to know who I am.
Yes, I know...! Well, naturally, I went out and asked people in the street. That’s what I do for a living, see! Got to start somewhere, right?...
