Well, I was going for the sense of blowing a herd of llamas, so I guess I missed the mark, Mr. SNR.
Just kidding. Actually, you've hit it right on the mark.
The dialogue delivery I wanted to achieve was a kind of Stephen Hawking/Star Wars Droid/HAL effect in order to subtly communicate the cultural superficiality and perfunctorily robotic exchange that is so common in the typical conversations conducted in today's society ... like a mirror held up to expose the emotional void and desultory shallowness that comprises humanity's verbal interactions. It's rare for audiences to pick up on those kind of subtleties embedded in a cinematic performance, Mr. SNR, so thank you for noticing.
