Yeah, Skittles wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, too, Sean, and a lot of it was the video editing. But we can try to get away from Japanese animation for the moment. Trouble is that every time I switch topics, my mind keeps going on the previous topic, and I come up with something fro a previous topic.

I’ve seen a lot more Japanese animation then American, too, and that factors in. Then I’ll suddenly see something nifty – like a music video involving Frankenstein in German – and I’m off on a tangent again. Speaking of which:

Ur-Ur-Enkel von Frankenstein 2006 – Frank Zander

Ah, you thought I was kidding, did you? The title on this translates to something like the Great Great Grandson of Frankenstein, according to babelfish google translator, which sounds about right. The video had an appropriate level of manaicalness and laughter, though, which are the important things. Even if it was all in german, so I couldn’t understand a thing.

Looks like Frank has done other entertaining things, too:

Hey Captain Starlight – Frank Zander

Nice space theme going. Don’t understand much of the video other then that aliens keep coming in, and they keep killing them because they look different then us they are invading the ship. Without weapons (or clothing, mostly), apparently. OTOH, given that the guns the crew have don’t shoot projectiles, have any type of beam , or make any type of noise, maybe the aliens are humouring them. Aside from the one the blond guy strangled with this bare hands…
