Farrah Bostic digs robotsWell, close enough. I like things that REMIND me of robots, including robots themselves, which are an obvious reminder. Robotic things, homages to robots, references to robots - those all work. But I also like rockets. And ray-guns. (Also, the sound the doors on the Enterprise make when they open and shut.
