Mako Mori Battles Giant Kaiju

It’s not a secret that I wasn’t the biggest fan of this past summer’s giant-robots-punch-giant-monsters-in-the-face flick Pacific Rim. In fact, there was a whole segment of “Hard N.O.C. Life” dedicated to me disagreeing with Jenn about the merits of the movie.

That said, I do realize that I am in the minority in this opinion, at least among the fanboy set. I get that. I ain’t hatin’. Whatever floats your jaeger, right?

One of those fanboys who loved this movie more than me is my friend, artist Jamie Noguchi. It’s probably safe to say Jamie loves this movie more than most — even Guillermo Del Toro. Probably. Jamie feels so strongly about this movie (because SWORD!), he wrote a song about it. Wanna hear it? Hear it go.

And yes, those of you with keen indie rock ears are right. That is The Flaming Lips’ “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.” Anyway, if you dig the track and want it for yourself, head on over to Jamie’s Soundcloud for the download.

While you’re at it, subscribe to Jamie’s YouTube channel to find more music, art tips, and general ranting and raving.
