Won't ever happen like this anymore

11th Dimension - Julian Casablancas

Like if Captain Kirk rock jumped out of his captain's chair and busted some sick dance moves with First Officer Spock. Like if King Henry had lasers. Like if robots had hearts. Like if aliens were robots. Like if guitars were strobe lights. Like playing the drums with glowsticks. Like having a a rave in the forest. Like watching fireworks from outer space. Like if A-Ha's "Take on Me" video were coloured. Like living inside Tron. Like shaking hands with Robocop. Like sound traveling through a Stargate. Like James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard starting a rock group. Like Data shedding a tear. Like an assembly robot dancing with a Model T. Like mechanical and organic fused with a light show.
