Haha, yes, Methuselah has awoken, at least temporarily.Anything scandalous happened here in the last four years or so?
Has anyone seen this suit in their local store in a 44 and would be willing to proxy to Melbourne? I stopped to think about it for five minutes and the last one sold out from under me

Marc's got his own podcast now, WTF with Marc Maron, and this commentary is a re-record of something he was speaking about in an early ep. I guess Marc's an acquired taste, but I think he's great, and his podcast's really good so far - kind of stream-of-consciouness stories about consumerism and stealing from Whole Foods, and conversations with other standups like Jim Gaffigan and Patton Oswalt. Little skits and other things. New Marc, I think, is a little more mellow...
Great to finally meet you guys. It's good to see that The People On The Internet are nice, normal blokes in real life. Plus, I hadn't been to St Kilda since before the Palace burned down. Next time around: Paintball.
