The drum machine is set to "Mexican Radio", and that's fine by me in twelve ways. The Monster might well wreak bloody havoc, most likely on random passers-by.

He was signed at the same time as Men Without Hats, and you can hear a similarity. In another definition, projection is the presentation of an image, suggesting the role of Science Fiction in showing “new worlds” to an audience, which are really not all that new or alterntative. Zoe Quinn is probably a no-talent ass-clown, but that's beside the point.
