Listen — Travis Coates was alive once and then he wasn’t.

Now he’s alive again.

Simple as that.

The in between part is still a little fuzzy, but he can tell you that, at some point or another, his head got chopped off and shoved into a freezer in Denver, Colorado. Five years later, it was reattached to some other guy’s body, and well, here he is. Despite all logic, he’s still 16 and everything and everyone around him has changed. That includes his bedroom, his parents, his best friend, and his girlfriend. Or maybe she’s not his girlfriend anymore? That’s a bit fuzzy too.

Looks like if the new Travis and the old Travis are ever going to find a way to exist together, then there are going to be a few more scars.

Oh well, you only live twice.

Theme Song

Waking up five years after his head got chopped off and stored in a cryogenic freezer, all Travis Coates wanted was to continue living his life. However, his girlfriend Cate is actually engaged now and all he wants is to get her back. So I immediately thought of this song because while Travis's girlfriend isn't named Ramona, everything was so on point (check out the lyrics, although Cate's fiance isn't a slacker). I present to you... RAMONA by Velociraptor!


Ramona I told you
I can't sit next to you in the cinema
When you're texting other guys
And I thought I knew you
But baby you make me so blue, uuuu uuuh uuuh

My baby, used to be my baby
So sweet and my baby,
Used to be my baby, my baby!
I can't be merry when
My ramona marries some other slacker
I-i-i-i still remember when -

Ramona I told you
I ain't now scared of you
I won't write, I won't call
And I thought I knew you
But baby you make me so blue, uuuu uuuh uuuh

My baby, used to be my baby
So sweet and my baby
Used to be my baby, my baby!
I can't be merry when
My ramona marries some other slacker
I-i-i-i still remember when she was my girl

My girl my girl
My girl and my girl
My girl my girl
My girl and my girl
My girl my girl
My girl and my girl

Ramona I told you!

I can't be merry when
My ramona marries some other slacker
When I still remember when

I can't be merry when
My ramona marries some other slacker
When I still remember when

My girl, my girl
My girl, my girl
