The clip aggregator one had me feeling good and thinking of old Dave Carnie gonzo style investigative reports. Of course the part was missing where you do a bunch of speed and then something happens involving a bodily function, but the tone was still there. Good one!

Yeah, no speed, but I was admittedly feeling pretty gassy while writing it (I'd made a big pot of lentil soup for the week). Thanks for readin'!

Brad Sheppard in Baby Steps is one of my all-time favs also, great call. The second bonus part always made it feel like an alternative pj. High water mark for me is the nollie heel over the spine in the coloured ramps.
