I've always identified strongly with Wile E. Coyote from the classic Roadrunner cartoons. I certainly appreciate his perseverance in the face of what is essentially an unachievable task. He is a modern Sisyphus, an animated Captain Ahab. Mostly, though, I like is eternal optimism in technology.
Here is a song by the great Billy Childish with Thee Mighty Casesars celebrating "Wiley Coyote". I like running to this one.
