S-s-s-omething from the inbox. Paul writes regarding the uncanny valley:

Given your recent link re: the uncanny valley, I thought this article about Sun-Maid’s redesigned icon would be worth your time. Photo.

Clearly, she’s selling grapes from a certain valley. Creeeepy.

I love the idea of Uncanny Valley being an actual geographical location (situated in California, I would assume) inhabited by creepy video game characters, digitized actors, and retooled advertising icons.
