Fire Flies, My favorite song about Robotics.

Why may you ask? It played at the end of Einstein in 2010, once Woody gave his last words.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

...when you're already writing song parodies for next year's kickoff

I'm working on "Kickoff don't be late" to the tune of "Christmas don't be late"

The pre-song words:
"Alright you GDC, ready to reveal your game?
Yeah, let's reveal it now!
Ok Dean? OK!
Ok Woodie? OK!
Ok Dave? Dave. DAAAAAVVVVVVEEEEEE!

Kickoff, Kickoff time is here..."

I would argue that you are not overdosed if you don't know the correct name of this year's game: LogoMotion. (Feel free to argue back!)

When you have random moments where you're like, "THIS COULD WORK FOR A ROBOT!" and write it down...then find your note later and wonder "What was I thinking..."

Haha. I did not even notice that I said that! I will get that right within the next day or two. I still have the song stuck in my head, and it still says locomotion (GFR is one of my favorite bands).

So maybe you should write new lyrics and submit it to the music thread that was started a couple days ago. (I think the music thread is a subset of Overdosed.)

I must be overdosed myself... spending time reading this thread!

Haha. Create music!?? There are strategies to come up with, designs to prototype, and a robot (or two) to build (along with school and homework)!! There is no time to create pointless lyrics!
