      well, I've seen more examples. what about the videoclip that you can
      download from this very groups file list that ends with the
      text "BOREDOMS BORETRIBE SUPER7"? 7VO7? Maybe I should've said
      Boredoms-related instead of Boredoms. and maybe not exaggregated it
      to "central", but still, it keeps popping up every now and then.

        It is just a recurring thing, like Super (vis a vis the Super Roots
        series, Super Ae, their Super <random word> tours, etc.), in fact, it is
        probably more prominent than 7. As for side-projects, I'd say this would
        be a question of the members that are in the Boredoms and the side
        projects, but it is just another recurring image that the band
        (especially EyE) uses, like onanism and the word 'fuck' in the early
        days, and the Hanatarash's obsession with penises. There are many
        recurring images to find throughout the band's work, more than that
        (hint: take a look at the track list for Chocolate Synthesizer and see
        if you see something like that) which I've mentioned. I think it is more
        of a stylistic thing with all of these, things that interested EyE
        especially during various times, but that's just me ;)
