"I consider 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' to be comfort reading, I like the al pastor tacos at Tacos Mexico and I count among my literary influences the Chainsaw from 'Doom'. 'RRRRRR! You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

    Shanoah Alkire is our Discordian at large. "Born in Santa Cruz, I grew up in Grass Valley and the Bay Area, and now lurk in Las Vegas. My literary influences include Ray Bradbury, Lewis Carroll, and Douglas Adams. I also program as a hobby, and currently maintain the Gtk port of Angband. You can find a rather old bio of me here."

2-12-09 Ragtime Revolutionaries – Megas XLR

Posted by Sean on February 13, 2009

Well, Shanoah, there’s Japanimation. And then there’s American animation that does its damnedest to look like Japanimation. These are usually disasters.

An exception is the late and lamented Megas XLR. If you’ve never seen it, let me sum it up for you: a headless mecha robot from the future crashes into New Jersey. Two slackers find it and rebuild it. Since it doesn’t have a head, they stick a hot rod on top of it.

Oh, and the pilot, Coop, is apparently the greatest mecha pilot in the universe from all his extensive video game training.

And you wonder why I like it.

The song is Chicks Dig Giant Robots by Ragtime Revolutionaries, now Deathwish IX. Courtesy of mangenkyo06.

I dig giant robots
YOU dig giant robots
WE dig giant robots
CHICKS dig giant robots
