Transformers: More Than Meets the Eyes and Ears

I'm very excited about the upcoming Transformers movie. So far the Transformers website doesn't have much, but soon it will morph into a battle bot and strafe all of the lesser blogs in the blogosphere. (The blogosphere is between Earth's troposphere and stratosphere.)

And although I'm excited for the movie, I'm even more excited for the soundtrack! Check out these lyrics to the animated Transformers movie's soundtrack:

Something evil's watching over you
Comin' from the sky above
And there's nothing you can do

Prepare to strike
There'll be no place to run
When your caught within the grip
Of the evil Unicron

More than meets the eye
Robots in Disguise

Transformers was ahead of their time! Just look at how they've changed Unicorn to Unicron - it's like the nerdy computer guy's L33T language (pronounced, "elite" for all of you non-nerds), only from the 80's.

By the way, Wikipedia's article on the L33T language is longer than its article on the Troposphere. Go figure - the Troposphere has only been here for either 4 billion or 6 thousand years, depending on your scientific / religious beliefs.

Those lyrics, by the way, are by the band Lion. Lion, as you may remember, was an offshoot of the Care Bear family, whose full name was Brave Heart Lion. He was like the William Wallace of the Care Bear family, before he started to make movies and drunken diatribes against the Jews.

My wife took cake decorating classes, and she already knows that I want a Transformers cake for my bday. Now we'll just have to wait and see which side she's on - will it be an Autobots or a Decepticons cake?
