Yeah, I was thinking along those lines, albeit in the strangest campiest
ways. Steam Train Gundam? Sounds like the latest Neo England entry for the
tournament. But yeah, there's a lot to read into for inspiration, so I
better get cracking.

Sure, I can't claim that doing something like this is purely original
myself. Film noir will be good, but I can't think of a way the Gundams would
come in. (Name's Spade, Gundam Spade. I've been out on the streets, with
fifty-one shots with me, one gin, the rest, vulcan.) Of course I'm sure you
can come up with more ideas than my currently uninspired self, so please, do
something so I can rip you off. :p

And yes, to whom this may concern, my hard disk is on it's last leg, so I
may disappear for a while and a few.
