    You are the shizzit (apparently we can't swear)Chris. Love the Japanese monster turtle; where did you get that?! And youre totally right; your job would be awesome and I would intern at your place for free if I lived closer just to hang out with you guys. Keep it up!

    I love your quote at the end, Harkwick. I would also like a completely nerd-tastic job that I can get paid for to buy more nerdy crap. If I could grow up one day to do what you do, my life would not be in vain. In fact, I would envy every minute of it.

    You're a good man Mr. Hardwick; keep feeding hope to us nerds that we too will someday be cool.
    And well I feel obligated to say, though that Gamera portrait is ace… you need to step up your geek-cred trophies sir… if you want we can take up a collection.

    Chris, don't -ever- change. But do you, or staff member which might be reading this, have any advice for someone considering taking a risk? I'm just about to finish my AA degree with Psych as my major and English as my minor, and I've been heavily involved with writing and some performance in the last couple years. An internship at G4 would be heaven, but the logistics are keeping me from making the jump from Iowa. Any advice?

    Is that a PAINTING of Gamura in the background Chris?Hahahaha you remind me of one of my best friends. We've got a lot in common & you make a good point about TV being robotic. But whats wrong? You've seemed very down for quite some time now.

    Hahaha! I love Chris Hardwick. He completes the cast. God, I love AOTS.

    G4 sounds like a great place to work. I wish I could work there. I could probably get in if I slept with enough people. Penis, butthole... I'm sorry for what I'm about to do...

    Are you kidding me right now? I too was born in Louisville and then moved and grew up in Memphis! Now I'm going to the U of M. If you ever come back, we can hit up Beale St. :P
