  • sparky

     Damn Akira, amazing.  I was already having a great day and then, with no warning, ~45 min of awesome.  So much WIN.  Any idea of when we’ll be seeing what the T-shirt looks like?  I’ve never been much for blind faith…

      lol, plenty of warning, nearly daily.

      • sparky

         Yeah, for the past what, year and a half at least? After a certain point I stopped listening to promises of “soon” and was waiting for something a bit less vague.  This did nicely.

    Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!
