Lessons from The Flaming Lips “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”

This morning I was listening to possibly one of the most original concept albums ever created, that of course being The Flaming Lips “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.”  I found this a very appropriate CD to listen to today considering all the talk of robots and zombies and the like lately.  What can we learn from this album?  Well probably quite a lot.

  1. Pink Robots are vulnerable to Japanese girls wearing yellow, so if we decide to program robots to destroy us we should strongly consider making them pink and also mandating that all girls in Japan wear yellow
  2. Vitamins are good for you, especially if you are planning some serious robot fighting
  3. If A.I. learns to love we may all be very confused, also said A.I. may think that love and eating is the same thing
  4. Someday everybody we know will die, but if there is a zombe plague they may soon after return from the grave and attempt to consume our brains
  5. We cannot meet people from the future . . . yet
  6. Reaching Pavonis Mons by balloon may not be impossible but is currently unlikely due to the fact that said mountain (actually volcano) is located on Mars a planet on which we are still yet to visit 

The Flaming Lips are awesome, they are high up on the list of musicians that I’d like to see live.
