    Font problems? Really? No tags for Nelson Bond or the Unknown Artist, but font problems? Perhaps that is what robot is trying to fix up there. Does that “No” need kerning?

    The head of that robot looks very Hayao Miyazaki-ish.

    @Bibliomancer – Yeah the quality of my tagging has been terrible of late! Where is the tag wizard when you need him!

    @Si (1): Wasn’t there talk of Aaron Sorkin doing a stage version of the Flaming Lips’ album ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”?

    Instead, he did ‘Studio 60 on Sunset Strip’ and gave us what seemed like hours of Sting playing a Lute.

    The first all-robot production of “Der Ring des Nibelungen” did not go exactly as planned….

    Goodness! It’s the fellow what almost let himself be eaten by an anaconda, no really, honest to gosh.

    @tag Misplaced ‘font problems’ tag. The font is the only thing not wrong with this one 🙂
