    Yes, I did receive the calender a little over a week ago. It’s pruddy, thanks! Spread the love/hate around, Aksysphiles, and share your thoughts on iTunes and email!
    That poem was epic. I’ll think about it every time I play.

    And Aaron dropped the F-bomb like 20 times – I can’t be keeping the score every time, so git wit the program, brudda!

    Well shit. Apparently I’m gay. =/

    Any ways. I felt this was a very intriguing podcast. Had a great balance of insightful information about BTB and the usual randomness.
    Though it did feel rather tame compared to the other ones…

    Also, Considering the podcast is meant for 18 year olds and over. Why the hell would it matter if they curse or not?

    @Monochrome Red:

    Truly it doesn’t matter that much, it is just standard operating procedure here to razz Chuck as much a humanly possible.
