I had a pretty good pun in the pre-roll section about "falling in love with the pharma deeters" and I want to claim retrospective credit for it but I'm not gonna bother explaining it. Just know that there was gold in those hills.

Don't know if this has always been the case, but I just noticed that these are available in Spotify. Look forward to listening to these.

I think only jessamyn can be a my-fite, the rest of us are our-fites.

BTW, if you want the amateur weirdness in Ninja Warrior, look up original Japanese Ninja Warrior. There's so many guys in wacky costumes that do not make it past the first jump-and-catch-a-rope obstacle, and yet they are applaudable.

And Fortnite, schornite. Epic is forgiven for all sins thanks to their release of ZZT.
