Some of our favorite characters of the last few years have been a rolling ball that beeps, a talking Stick that says one short phrase, and a sarcastically awesome anti-authority robot that was reprogrammed from being a now former authoritarian enforcer.
We have yellow evil pills that get into shenanigans and do not speak. We had a robot that just wanted to clean up trash and honor his white love.
We do not want to communicate with these characters, we want to be the characteristics they portray. We do not care about what is being said, just trying to fill those empty feelings that watching motion pictures is the only cement for now.
