You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

Now that you have your time machine in hand, here we are in 2095:

Yours Truly, 2095 – Electric Light Orchestra (visuals from Metropolis)

This is actually a brilliant AMV I found of Twilight & Yours Truly, 2095, by Electric Light Orchestra. The visuals are all from the anime, Metropolis, and fit almost perfectly. And the music grabs you, anyways.

And of course, it’s nicely tuned for someone like me, with lyrics like:

"I met someone who looks a lot like you;
She does the things you do, but she is an IBM."

Incidentally, those of you that follow Narbonic and have been reading the directors cut and have seen the list[1] she’s been compiling in the commentary of songs involving mad science and/or evil may recognize some of the songs that I’ll be posting in the future.

Mainly because I copied the list down, and plan to surf youtube to find videos for some of the songs. And cool songs I find videos for tend to end up in posts. 🙂

[1] Which is up to 74 songs!
