      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 ;)
