  • Sparks carried a surprisingly small role in the films and games considering his status as operator on the Logos. Mostly his comments simply acted as comic relief for the usually serious universe. This is especially clear in Enter the Matrix in which almost all the chuckles belonged to him. Sparks is known for saying, "And since your lives obviously mean nothing to you, I ask you to try to think of something that does have meaning. Namely, my life."
  • He has a dark brown pelt.
  • I'm redoing this, I just fail at sad stuff XD
  • From the game Asphalt Urban GT for the Nintendo DS. Finish a race in any course during championship mode (not the final race, though). Right as the race ends, but before they do the "freeze-frame" to show your ranking, you should slam into the nearest wall. You should see sparks in the freeze-frame, that's good. Now, when you start the next race, look closely at your vehicle... Sparks should appear. Submitted by: Joe DiSalvo

  • Sparks is a second generation synth who was taken from the Commonwealth and now resides in the Badlands Territory.

  • Sparks was a clone trooper during the Clone Wars. Jacen Fearbeamer added him to his squad, the Jetiise Vode. Sparks was unique in the fact that he had battlefield trauma, which caused him to develop a split personality. He sometimes was the loyal clone trooper; however, at other times, he though he was a Separatist, and he fought the Jetiise Vode with all his might. They always managed to detain him unharmed, though.
  • Eric accidentally ruins Donna's wedding dress and must find a way to prevent her from knowing.

  • Sparks is the tenth and final volume in a series of Young Adult novels about Smallville. The novel was written by Cherie Bennett & Jeff Gottesfeld and was printed in April 2004.
  • Sparks is the name of the town that is introduced in the book The People of Sparks. At the start it had only 322 citizens, but took on an extra 417 people when the people of Ember arrived.

  • Sparks es un modelo del robot Sr. Mañoso que se encuentra en Big Mountain en el año 2281.
  • Sparks are an American band who formed in 1970 in Los Angeles and are notably still active today. The band officially consists of only brothers Ron (keyboards, songwriting, questionable mustache) and Russell Mael (vocals), but over the years they have accumulated a large amount of ex-members and session musicians. The duo's style is characterized by their whimsically over-the-top songwriting, their funny, witty lyrics, and a quirky stage presence which plays with the contrast between Russell's hyperactive Face of the Band attitude and Ron's deliberately stiff and taciturn stage persona.
  • Sparks is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), renamed from Halfnelson, formed in 1968. Known for their quirky approach to songwriting,[2] Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics,[3] and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael'sfalsetto voice and Ron Mael's keyboard style.

  • SPARKS was originally recruited for the G.I. Joe support staff by General Flagg and served as a radio operator and computer expert in the early days of the team. He saw little field action, and eventually “retired” to freelance work in the media industry. However, his skills were so uncanny and his loyalty so strong that he soon returned, working as a liaison to Military Intelligence and the Generals in Operations. While he serves many vital functions, his specialty is operating so-called “secret numbers stations,” sending shortwave radio transmissions to covert operatives throughout the free world in English, Spanish, German, French and Slavic languages in a variety of electronically-altered voices.
  • Peel took an early interest in the group, playing at least one track from their debut album, when they were known as Halfnelson, and, with his liking of unusual names, was particularly taken by the name of the band's guitarist, Earle Mankey. Russell Mael, who in 1979 took on the role of a DJ and hosted a Radio One show with "two hours of his favourite music" [1]. mentioned that in the early 1970s, the group were surprised to receive a small royalty cheque from the BBC, and BBC airplay may have influenced their decision to move to the UK.
  • Sparks was a children's paper - containing the usual mixture of comics, prose stories and whatnot - whose first issue appeared in 1914 (dated 21 March), published by James Henderson & Sons. The publication went through a number of changes: with the 5 January 1918 issue it merged with Big Comic to become Big Comic and Sparks, which was curiously renamed Sparks and Big Comic with its 5 October 1918 issue. The 3 May 1919 issue returned the title to just plain Sparks (this incarnation is known as Sparks2 by some sections of the UK comics community). Hendersons were acquired by the Amalgamated Press in 1920, and the 24 April 1920 issue saw the paper adopt the name Little Sparks, while the 7 November issue was released under the name Sunbeam. Sunbeam carried on until 1940, when it absorbed Puck

Available playlists from the early 1970s are scarce, but Peel played at least one track from the 1973 album A Woofer in Tweeter's Clothing. The 1974 follow-up Kimono My House (which featured the hits This Town.. and Amateur Hour) featured in his 1974 Top Ten albums. He had also featured Sparks in one of his 1974 Sounds On Sunday shows. In September 1977 he played three tracks from the new album Introducing Sparks on the same night. He was one of the first DJs to play The Number One Song In Heaven on its release in March 1979 - the single didn't reach the mainstream and chart until two months later. After playing the long version of the track, he mentioned that he had a copy of the new album although he hadn't had a chance to listen to it yet. He promptly played a track from it the following night, choosing Tryouts For the Human Race which was released as a single seven months later. He does not seem to have featured any of their other new material after that. Peel favourites Cuban Boys covered The No.1 Song In Heaven for their 'cover versions' session, broadcast 10 May 2000.
  • Sparks is an American band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), renamed from Halfnelson, formed in 1968. Best known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael's falsetto voice and Ron Mael's keyboard style. Though the band's long career has seen them successfully pioneer many different musical genres; including glam rock, power pop, electronic dance music, mainstream pop and most recently chamber pop, Sparks have created their own unique musical universe. While achieving chart success in various countries around the world including United Kingdom, Germany, France, and the United States, they have enjoyed a cult following since their first releases. Sparks have been highly influential on the development of popular music, in particular on the late 1970s scene, when in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder (and Telex subsequently), they reinvented themselves as an electronic pop duo, and abandoned the traditional rock band line up. Their frequently changing styles and visual presentations have kept the band at the forefront of modern, artful pop music. They are held in esteem by such bands and performers asKurt Cobain, Cait Brennan, Dax Riggs, Franz Ferdinand, Morrissey, Arcade Fire, MGMT, Sonic Youth, Ramones, Vincent Koreman, Duran Duran, Björk, Depeche Mode, New Order, Def Leppard, Faith No More, The Pixies, Ween, Will Sheff of Okkervil River, Mark Burgess of the Chameleons, Human League, ABBA, Paul McCartney and They Might Be Giants, all of whom cite Sparks as a major influence. The 2002 release of Lil' Beethoven, their "genre-defying opus", as well as the more recent albums Hello Young Lovers (2006, their 20th studio album), Exotic Creatures Of The Deep(2008), and their latest fantasy musical The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman (2009–2010) have brought Sparks renewed critical and commercial success, and seen them continue to "steer clear of pop conventions." Sparks are best known for the songs "This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us", which reached number 2 in the British charts in 1974, the electronic hit "The Number One Song In Heaven" in 1979, "When I'm With You" which topped the French Charts in 1980, the single "I Predict" became Sparks' first hit on the Billboard Hot 100 reaching #60 in May 1982, the 1984 US hit "Cool Places" with Go-Go Jane Wiedlin, and "When Do I Get To Sing 'My Way'" which topped the German and European charts in 1994/95 and was the top airplay record in Germany for 1994.

SPARKS also serves as the personal advisor to General Colton, founder of the G.I. Joe team. It was this chief of staff who recommended that SPARKS keep his field skills sharp, and join the Joes on training missions when possible. On these exercises SPARKS transports the field radio and works closely with the squad commander. He may not have the combat skills, but his dedication to the team is without limits.

  • Sparks was a clone trooper during the Clone Wars. Jacen Fearbeamer added him to his squad, the Jetiise Vode. Sparks was unique in the fact that he had battlefield trauma, which caused him to develop a split personality. He sometimes was the loyal clone trooper; however, at other times, he though he was a Separatist, and he fought the Jetiise Vode with all his might. They always managed to detain him unharmed, though.
  • Eric accidentally ruins Donna's wedding dress and must find a way to prevent her from knowing. Red, under the influence, buys a canoe at an auction with Kitty's wedding gift money and has to find another present to give to Eric. Hyde, Kelso and Fez try to find humorous ways of misusing the canoe.
  • The Sparks is an exile gang in Lucero Point. They are named due to their tendency of burning down things that they do not like, and even trying to burn down city blocks to drive out exiles that they don't like. Despite the fact that she has an uncanny tactical ability and fanatical devotion to her gang, she is also known to be egotistical and temperamental.

The band officially consists of only brothers Ron (keyboards, songwriting, questionable mustache) and Russell Mael (vocals), but over the years they have accumulated a large amount of ex-members and session musicians. The duo's style is characterized by their whimsically over-the-top songwriting, their funny, witty lyrics, and a quirky stage presence which plays with the contrast between Russell's hyperactive Face of the Band attitude and Ron's deliberately stiff and taciturn stage persona. After releasing two albums that were largely ignored in their homeland, the duo decided to try their luck on the other side of the Atlantic and relocated to England. It was there that they reached their popular (and arguably most creative) peak in 1974 with third album Kimono My House, a fusion of glam-rock and dance-pop sensibilities with wry and clever stories, which spawned a surprise number two hit single with their Signature Song "This Town Ain't Big Enough For the Both Of Us". They followed it up with Propaganda the same year and Indiscreet the next, which were essentially a continuation of the Kimono sound (to continued success), after which they returned to the United States and fell into obscurity starting with Big Beat. During the next few decades they would go on to make over a dozen albums in which they would flirt with many different genres, including disco with No. 1 In Heaven and an uninspired New Wave/synthpop period in the '80s which is generally agreed upon as awful (Angst In My Pants, Pulling Rabbits Out of a Hat, Interior Design). Although they did a brief resurgences of popularity (especially in Europe) with 1979's No. 1 in Heaven, 1980's Terminal Jive (which made them One Hit Wonders in France) and 1994's Europop-tastic Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins, it wasn't until the release of the New Sound Album Lil' Beethoven in 2002, of whose genre is indescribable but can best be explained as a combination of house repetition, Baroque Pop and straight-up classical music, which (ahem) sparked renewed interest in the duo and led to much acclaim in both the UK and the US, paving the way for a productive decade that resulted in the rock-oriented follow-ups, Hello Young Lovers and Exotic Creatures of the Deep. Their latest work, The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman, is a musical Ron and Russell composed for a Swedish radio station. Despite being criminally overlooked during much of their career, the duo are very highly regarded (Morrissey, They Might Be Giants, Nirvana, Bjork, Ween, Sonic Youth, The Ramones, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Def Leppard, New Order, Faith No More, The Pixies and Franz Ferdinand are some of their most notable admirers) and their music was crucial to the development of Punk Rock, New Wave and Synth Pop. Discography: * Sparks / Halfnelson (1971) * A Woofer in Tweeter's Clothing (1972) * Kimono My House (1974) * Propaganda (1974) * Indiscreet (1975) * Big Beat (1976) * Introducing Sparks (1977) * No. 1 In Heaven (1979) * Terminal Jive (1980) * Whomp That Sucker (1981) * Angst in My Pants (1982) * In Outer Space (1983) * Pulling Rabbits Out of a Hat (1984) * Music That You Can Dance To (1986) * Interior Design (1988) * Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins (1994) * Plagiarism (a Cover Album/tribute album of their older songs, 1997) * Balls (2000) * Lil' Beethoven (2002) * Hello Young Lovers (2006) * Exotic Creatures Of The Deep (2008) * The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman (2009) * A Day in the Limelight: The narrator of "When Do I Get To Sing "My Way"" is desperately waiting for his. * Ambiguous Gender: Russell in the early days. The operatic falsetto didn't help. * Anti-Christmas Song: "Thank God it's Not Christmas", combined with Anti-Love Song: a man dreads the Christmas season because he has to spend it with his dull wife. * Anti-Love Song: "Throw Her Away (And Get a New One)", "Confusion", "Eaten by the Monster of Love". Pulling Rabbits out of a Hat and Hello Young Lovers alternate between this and Silly Love Songs. See also Anti-Christmas Song above. * Broken Record: The majority of Lil' Beethoven is built around stock phrases and repetition, but arguably the crowning example of this would have to be "My Baby's Taking Me Home", which consists of the title repeated approximately 104 times with the only other lyrics being a spoken monologue delivered by Russell. * The Cameo: Jane Wiedlin duets with Russell on two songs in In Outer Space. * Director Tsui Hark appears in, fittingly enough, "Tsui Hark". * Cover Album: Plagiarism, a cover album of their own songs. It was recorded after the success of Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins to introduce their new German fanbase to their older music. It didn't exactly work. * Cross Dresser: Ron in the album art for Angst in My Pants and the video for "I Predict". * Deconstruction: Lil' Beethoven is this to the Pop music format. * Epic Rocking: Hello Young Lovers is practically an album full of this. * Everything's Better with Bob: "Here Comes Bob", about a man who initiates car crashes in order to meet new people. * Fan Service: The sleeves for Big Beat and Plagiarism. * Genre Busting: From the beginning the band was hard to pin down. * Up to Eleven with Lil' Beethoven * Glam Rock: From Kimono My House through Indiscreet. Generally regarded as their best output period, and certainly their most popular and successful. * Gold Digger: "La Dolce Vita" * Handsome Lech: The narrator for "Ladies". * Heavy Metal: Surprisingly an Ur Example with "(No More) Mr. Nice Guys" from their self-titled debut. * Also "Ugly Guys with Beautiful Girls" and "Dick Around" * Intercourse with You: A lot: "Amateur Hour", "Under the Table with Her", "Sextown U.S.A.", "All You Ever Think About is Sex". * "Tryouts for the Human Race" takes it a step further: it's from the point of view of the sperm. * Long Title: Gratuitous Sax alone has "(When I Kiss You) I Hear Charlie Parker Playing", "Frankly, Scarlett, I Don't Give a Damn", "I Thought I Told You to Wait in the Car", "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil" * "As I Sit to Play the Organ at the Notre Dame Cathedral" * "I Can't Believe That You Would Fall for All the Crap in This Song" * Lyrical Dissonance: Practically a Trope Codifier. For example, "Here in Heaven" is a rocking, dramatic song about a failed suicide pact. * Every other song on Big Beat is a charged Protopunk Rock song about something depressing, cynical, or just outright irreverent. * Mondegreen: The first time many people heard "Beat the Clock", the title chant sounded like something completely different. * Minimalistic Cover Art: Kimono My House is a picture of two Geisha Girls against a green background. The cover also didn't have text in its first pressing. * Introducing Sparks is just a bust shot of Russell or Ron, depending on which side you're looking at, against a blue background with the album title. Said bust shots are combined in this page's image above. * Balls is just a colored circle on a gradient background. * Lil' Beethoven is mostly text except for a miniature Beethoven cartoon in the corner. * Mister Seahorse: "(She Got Me) Pregnant", if you take the song's title literally. It's really about a guy dealing with the emotional consequences of a one-night stand. * New Sound Album: Kimono Hy House began their Glam Rock era * Big Beat attempted a stripped-back, Protopunk Rock sound * Introducing Sparks attempted a sunny West Coast sound * No. 1 in Heaven began their Synth Pop period, which also frequently included New Wave, Power Pop, or Electronic Dance music * Lil' Beethoven began a Genre Busting era which mixed Chamber Pop with dance music and Hip Hop influences. * New Wave: Whomp that Sucker through Interior Design alongside their developing Synth Pop style. See Synth Pop below. * Power Pop: Coincides with their New Wave albums. * Precision F-Strike: "The Angels". * The Quiet One: Ron. It's made for some funny moments in television appearances. * Ron made two spoken-word appearances ("Under the Table with Her" and "Senseless Violins") before finally making his singing debut in The Seduction of Ingmar Burgman as a cab driver and a tour guide. Nearly 40 years after the band formed. * Refuge in Audacity: They take it all the time. * "White Women" from Big Beat gets special mention. As internet music critic Mark Prindle put it: * Self-Titled Album: Their first album, which was also self-titled when the band were called Halfnelson. * Shout-Out: Several songs are shout outs to films. Three songs were written about Gone with the Wind alone. * "(When I Kiss You) I Hear Charlie Parker Playing" namechecks the eponymous saxophonist as well as quoting the famous musical line "And the hills are alive with The Sound of Music". * "Lighten Up, Morrissey" is actually a tribute to the eponymous singer. The song's narrator is being brushed off by his girlfriend because Morrissey is so much cooler than him. * Sibling Yin-Yang: Deliberately played up by flamboyant frontman Russell and stodgy, button-down keyboardist Ron. * Signature Song: "This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us", and to a lesser extent "Beat the Clock". Every one of their style phases may also have its own signature tune. * Silly Love Songs: Fairly often: "Wonder Girl", "When I'm With You", "(When I Kiss You) I Hear Charlie Parker Playing". Pulling Rabbits out of a Hat and Hello Young Lovers alternates between this and Anti Love Songs. * "Fa La Fa Lee" is a Silly Love Song about incest. It's from their first album. * Suspiciously Specific Denial: "There's No Such Thing as Aliens" * Synth Pop: Began with No. 1 in Heaven and ran through the 80s and 90s until Balls in 2000. Aside from the former album, which is generally well regarded and was heavily influential to Electronic Music, fans have a Love It or Hate It attitude towards these records. * Take That: "Suburban Homeboy" is a mockery of privileged youths who try to act street, set to classy, orchestral backing. * "What Are All These Bands So Angry About?" is thought to be a swip at the mainstream popularity of angsty Nu-metal bands in the late '90s-early 2000s. * Vocal Range Exceeded: Famously averted. Russell has roughly a 2.5 octave vocal range. * You Can Leave Your Hat On: The video for "I Predict", courtesy of Ron.
