Just put the finishing touches on Episode 2 of RPTTH.Should be a good one. Goes up a week from tomorrow (trying to stay ahead on the production schedule too keep this bad boy on time). Next week’s topic: Cable Television.
As I write this the Oscars are (presumably) winding down. I did not see the show due to a lack of television signal (not to be confused with a lack of television). I have decided that I am not going to look up and see who won because who cares also, because I’m kind of […]
