But you won't let those robots eat me, Yoshimi

So it took me this long to listen to the Flaming Lips why?

I've been listening to their album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, which Fatboy Roberts reminded me of when he used the title song on a contest on his show. It's kind of sunnier Radiohead plus similar instrumental effects to what Quasi's used, and I like Quasi too. Before this the entirety of my exposure had been their Batman Forever song and "Do You Realize?" I knew of "Do You Realize?" because of a couple I knew on a forum who'd sing it to their dog while she was recovering from having a cancerous growth taken off her face. "Do you realize -- that you have the most beautiful face --" Reassuring and soothing, to help a pet in pain. I can get behind that.
