In this week's paper, Anna Genoese caught up with Cobra Starship guitarist (and This Is Ivy League frontman) Ryland Blackinton. After the jump, take a look at a music video from Cobra Starship; in the meantime, peruse an outtake from our interview with Blackinton, in which we discuss the serious subject of 1980s cartoons. Cobra Starship plays tomorrow at Warped Tour; stay tuned late Tuesday and Wednesday for full coverage of photos and other insanity.

Which do you think is better, G. I. Joe or the Transformers? Um… that’s tough. As a kid I was a big fan of both, but I always liked G. I. Joe because of Sergeant Slaughter, so I think I like G. I. Joe better than Transformers. Yeah.

Do you think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trumps them all? I mean, I definitely like Ninja Turtles more than G. I. Joe and Transformers combined. I don’t know why. Maybe just because the live action movies were… I don’t know, they just struck me a little more because they had karate and stuff. And pizza. And I love karate and pizza.

And they’re turtles. And they’re turtles! Thank you for pointing that out.

Who was your favorite Turtle? As I got older, I liked Leonardo, because he’s more practical, you know what I mean? But as a kid, I liked Raphael a lot, because he’s, he’s got a bad temper, and he would use, like, swear words, and I thought that was cool.

Cobra Starship, “Guilty Pleasure”
