You and your record store boners! The only guy I know that gets excited about those seven inchers!

Albi the Racist Dragon! I am there!

a boner? A BONER? Do your parents know you are up late browsing blogs?

For the record, records seldom elicit boners... And in an ironic twist boners seldom elicit records

Good night Eric.


I am so glad you remain a loyal and erudite reader... No filthy talk from you! :) I too am looking forward to the Conchords release. I expect I will be a whole lot poorer come April 19th.

Ah well!
