Zagato. A name that makes you think of performance or elegance. But
this little gem? Nope. Not at all. Dang cute e‑v though.
Tom Swift is best known around here for lending his name to a vile
word game. But he rode some nifty equipment as well. At least

Everyone knows that Annie Leibovitz is one of my favorite

“Tarboy, created by James Lee and Hania, is a sterling example of
flash animation. A brisk, epic short film, it is a perfectly packaged
capsule of awesome. A fantastic robot flavored, afternoon pick-me-up.”
Because I could not begin to describe this any better… (Coilhouse)
