Ohhhhhhhh, okay. I didn't know if that was some sort of nickname for one of the band members or something.

But that's still great nonetheless. I like it.

Mike Portnoy is another one of those "technical drummer" that i don't care for.

OK, for those not following along at home, here's the plot up to this point in like three sentences:

There are these robots called the NOMACS, they represent Justin Bieber and make shitty music. There's a guy who makes REAL music and everyone loves him. The ruler of the kingdom doesn't like him and gets all jealous and pissy and his daughter, the princess, joins forces with the hero.

That's about it and it's been, what, an hour?

I can't believe we haven't even fucking finished Act 1, oh my god.

I'm still ASTONISHED that there were enough people to sit around and agree that this should be recorded, and nobody successfully objected.

Oh listen to this drama in A Tempting Offer!

All of the Nefarious songs are the funniest. We've got another winner on our hands here.

Please tell me the ruler isn't jealous of his daughter hanging out with this hero dude. 'Cause that'd be really creepy if he were.

The grammatical pedant in me wants to write to them and tell them it should be NOMACs, because they clearly use NOMAC as a singular. I also want to know what the fuck NOMAC is an acronym for.

Or are they just capitalising it for the hell of it because it's ASTONISHING?

Oh that's basically it. In part it's a jealous dad album, just dressed up with the greatest pretense possible.
