I prefer my Eggman sunny side up, personally, but scrambled is good too, esp. with some salsa for kick. Hopefully all applicable listeners enjoyed their Thanksgivings and aren't out in the conspicuous post-holiday consumption known as 'Black Friday', though I've certainly seen some good deals being advertised. I've finally joined the next-genners and am the happy owner of an XBOX 360, DOA4, and Rockstar's Table Tennis. The latter is so zen simple I find myself playing it all the time; go figure that my favorite next generation title would be a glorified version of Pong ;) I never owned the original XBOX, so I also took the occasion to pick up a lot of older titles, sometimes for five or six bucks, like Ninja Gaiden. eStarland has loads of such deals for preowned titles (also picked up RE4 for the GC). As far as giving thanks, there's plenty of targets - I'm thankful to have had most of my immediate family over for a holiday dinner, for one, and for my new job, which has been working out well. From an OCR perspective, I'm thankful that we're back on track with site project releases, and that Project Chaos has set such a high watermark for the projects yet to come.
Speaking of which, Braincells and SnappleMan teamed up for this speedy metal thrashfest, and it takes absolutely no time in busting out the hardcore and chugging its way into your skull - right from the first second, it's aggressively metal and metalically aggressive. For the Lucky Charms lovers amongst you, it may also be magically delicious, but your mileage in that arena may vary; a culinary predilection for rapid-fire drums, rapid-fire rhythm guitar, noodling guitar hero lead, and a pulse that never gets cardiac arrested, but comes awful close, would help. It's boss music, of course, so you expect it to be frantic and menacing, but Snapple and Brain have added fuel to the fire and scrambled the original, then doused it with Tabasco for good measure. The end result is three and a quarter minutes of non-stop metal Robotnik rock; it won't win any awards for subtlety, nuance, or grace, but that's hardly the point. The ReMixers do an admirable job of incorporating variety, and the soloing towards the end is particularly nice. You'll still need a few Excedrin and a whiskey chaser to make the throbbing stop, but the ends justify the means.

There's one thing that sounds a little strange to me, and that's the guitar playing at 1:27 (as well as 2:51) and the following two or three seconds; it's just...weird IMHO.
