I was just reading Neatorama, and as I scrolled down through the newest posts I ran into an article "Songs About Giant Isopod." It's everywhere! And it doesn't say anyone told them about it; they seem to have learned of it of their own accord.
On a related note, I was clicking through some or another musician's myspace the other day and there was a comment from JD_Traynor. DiS is haunting me.
