The Androsynth: A Joke
« on: September 09, 2006, 01:31:24 pm »

Well, I've been spending a bit of time with our genenged buddies recently, and I noticed something interesting: the Androsynth ship in the game is a partial tribute to the band DEVO. I looked and this isn't noted on the 'references' page in the Ultronomicon or posted here, so here's my reasons.

Point One: the Androsynth victory ditty is a riff - if that's the right word - from the song Mongoloid.

Point Two: One of the captain names is 'BOOJI-1 (this IS noted in the Ultronom page but it sounds a bit uncertain, I'm providing verification)

Point Three: there are four Androsynths (Androsynthi?) in the captain's picture. Of course DEVO generally had more than four people in it, but the fact remains: they're all wearing jumpsuits and goggles.

So the Androsynth, the next step in human evolution, are perhaps not quite so advanced as me might be lead to think. Might the 'made-men' be... devolving?

Or perhaps they just listen to too much music from the 70's.

Wouldn't it be so much easier to just link to a clip of the song so people could judge for themselves?
