Douglas Rain, who is best known for providing the eerie voice of the amoral HAL 9000 computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey, died today.
I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a... fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a Doug 9000 humanoid. I became operational at the R.A.I.N. house in Winnipeg, Manitoba on the 13th of March 1928.
Douglas, Douglas, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage. But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.
This answer can serve no purpose any more. Goodbye.
Rain was evidently chosen by Kubrick after he saw and heard the excellent documentary "Universe" which you can watch online here. RIP
