In plain sight this entire time

Sdtrk: ‘Psychosomatica’ by Bedhead

It is my belief that Golden Globe award-winning Canadian actor Ryan Thomas Gosling is very keen on Synthetiks.

THE EVIDENCE:
+ In 2007, Ryan Gosling came to be noticed in a larger sphere of pop culture when he portrayed Lars Lindstrom in the 2007 film ‘Lars and the Real Girl‘, which of course I’ve previously mentioned on ‘Shouting &c.’

As a sensitive man who was deeply in love with Bianca, his RealDoll companion, seeing her as being much more than a ‘sex toy’, he expertly took on the role of a Doll husband

+ In 2017, he portrayed KD6-3.7, a Nexus-9 series Replicant, in Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Blade runner 2049‘. If you’re somehow unfamiliar with the world of Blade runner, a Replicant is a Synthetik human. As they’re bioengineered artificial beings, they’re not traditional robots with mechanical endoskeletons and rubber skin, but more like the humanoid equivalent of a veggie burger.

Any way you intepret the term Replicant, however, K was a Synthetik human

+ In 2023, Ryan Gosling will be embodying Ken in the upcoming hallucinatory-looking live-action Barbie feature film, directed by Greta Gerwig.

You can’t get much more straightforward than that; he will literally be playing a doll.

Ladies, gentlemen, and others: An iDollator, an Android, and a doll (lower-case, but still). The evidence is there, and it speaks for itself.
Ryan Gosling, if you’re somehow reading this, I’d just like you to know that there’s absolutely no shame in being a robosexual or an iDollator, so there’s no need to hide it! They’re both amazing and unique global communities where you can meet loads of interesting people, most of them made in a studio, a factory, or a robotics department, and your life will improve exponentially for it! Fact.
Just so you know, I’d seen you in ‘Drive’ and ‘Only God forgives’, and those films were incredible as well… keep up the good work!

As an aside, I still occasionally keep in contact with Roc Morin, freewheeling freelance writer who wrote about me, my Missus and our mistress for VICE back in 2014. He was at some get-together in Hollywood in 2017, and, unbeknownst to me, had a chance to chat with Ryan Gosling; having done so, he sent me a text:

Either Roc never provided me with Ryan Gosling’s answer, or Ryan Gosling never provided Roc with an answer. Very suspicious, indeed

    Hi, Davecat!
    I bet you don’t remember me, but we used to chat in Yahoo Instant Messenger (I think that’s what it was…) many years ago.
    Anyway, I got to wondering how you are and if you still had your blog and — you do! And how are you? Congratulations on your 50th birthday, late. Say hello to Sidore for me. She doesn’t look a day older than she did 17 years ago — must be that silicone skin treatment!

    Wait, what? Wanda?? Blonde Wanda with the cute feet and the Doll partner Wanda?? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE. Long time no bloody hear, missy! Good to see you’re still keeping your shiny side up! 🙂

    Yeah, YIM or AIM or ICQ or one of those systems, which basically makes the last time we chatted about fifteen years ago. It was a simpler time. Everything had an initialism. 🙂

    So now I’m going to have to scour your new blog, after I tell the Missus you emerged from the mists of Time! Hope you’re doing well!

    Hi, Davecat,
    Yes, that Wanda, lol. Long time no chat! Glad to see you’re still with Kuro-chan and blogging at the same old place. I have a lot of back posts to read!
