Ruben Cabrera & the Overlords of the Code Monkeys

Our own Ruben Cabrera has formed his own rock band, "Ruben Cabrera & The Overlords of the Code Monkeys". In the band with him are Tim Wilson on guitar, Matt Wood on drums, & as the code monkeys: Scott Alden, Brendan Reinhart, & Jess Crable.

With his new found popularity, Ruben has a cover article in an upcoming Rolling Stone magazine with tips on becoming a rock star on your own, without having to quit your day job to do it. Also revealed in this issue is the fact that Britney Spears is in love with Ruben - this could be the reason for her swearing tirade at a recent concert in Rio. This, of course, comes much to the dismay of our own Charlie Wiederhold, our resident Britney Spears fan. Charlie recently was overheard mumbling in the corner "Why Ruben? He doesn't know the age of consent in all 50 states, I do!"... Charlie was last seen plotting to replace his Britney Spears posters with Christina Aguilera posters.

We've also been treated to some animated concert footage of the Overlords - click here to check that out (it's about 500k). Click on the thumbnail of the Rolling Stone cover for a larger image. If you want to pay homage to Ruben & the Overlords, or just want to learn to be a rock star like Ruben, click on the discuss link at the top of this news story.

UPDATE! - This candid photo is just in - it's Ruben showing his rock star cool. He's out of his rock star gab (to hide his identity) at dinner with the 3D Realms crew. Charlie Wiederhold, still upset at Britney Spears being in love with Ruben, can be spotted in the photo planning Ruben's downfall. Notice how Ruben keeps his cool in the face of Charlie's red mouthed, teeth knashing, hatred of him? Now THAT'S a rock star! You too can learn to be a cool, even headed rock star like Ruben!

For those of you who don't get it, this is a joke, of course. We had a silly fan contribution recently, and wanted to do something with it.
