Cultural References
Title: Loco Motives

A Locomotive is the driving force, or engine, of a train. The term "loco" is an english-spanish bastardization used to refer to someone insane or out of control, usually extremely so. At the same time, one's "motives" refer to ones reason for acting a certain way. Hence the title refers to a series of actions driven by insane motivations.
