“I get the sense that Ricky is a machine or subroutine whose only function is to prove that he is the master at every genre and a peerless engineer. Even when he includes my personal kryptonite 'cold as ice' because it's just that good. I, for one, welcome our new robotic overlord and look forward to his beneficent reign.”
