  1. Dangerous Brian

    Hello all. I am back on the forums (Real life sucks).

    Great shows chaps! All of them, since mid December.

    Stealth is for the weak, LEROY through the front door ftw.

    P.S. I’ve been told I looked a bit like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, A little less beardy, but still…….. Another great talent gone.

  2. teppischfresser

    Wow, Yoshifett’s comments on the non-Blu Ray Xbox One are ridiculous. I don’t have cable, Netflix doesn’t have many movies (just leftist bullshit “documentaries”), and I’d rather own my stuff not pay to borrow. Much like you don’t actually own your iTunes music.

  3. ^ Don’t worry we made sure to give you a real shout out on the upcoming show.
