Just the other day, I was quipping (as is my wont) that laser eye surgery is a sham; if there were a surgery that could give me laser eyes, I would know about it.

Kirby Krackle is a two-piece geek rock outfit founded in 2009, out in Seattle, Washington. Their secret origin makes no express mention of details of mystical training, mutant genes, alien rings, radioactive insects, alien abduction, vampire blood, or murdered parents and their billion-dollar fortune being focused on a life fighting crime… but I think we can safely assume one or more of these is the case. Kirby Krackle has three albums out, at present.
