No offense, friends. However, I care not to listen to your YouTube video breakdowns. If you write it out I may or may not skim it. Fact is, evidence by the sweet ass “songs you’re listening to” thread, I’ve gotten far better sounds to hear. That’s simply fact. Also, right now, the Phillies and Flyers rookie games are on...is also football season and so like....write it cliff note style and maybe I’ll skim during commercials....if I’m not firing up some funk. 

Thanks for the spam though, fella.
