    That was the most genuine "I got nothin'" I've heard in a while, ha. Joe seems cool.

    As for Joe and Sam, it sounds like the kind of relationship where the roles change depending on the mood or day of the week, really.

    Wait, what?

    love the Higurashi reference,

    vice pit undercover has one very sexy cover girl Lol,

    that Boston convention sounds pretty sweet, it stinks I was born and raised in New York and yet I never went to an anime con before, I currently live in Florida I wonder if we have any down here?

    @Daniel_Newton: Yes, Joe and I have a pretty flexible interchange :) I'd love to have Joe back on to have a more focused discussion about Sentai and other anime topics, he's a pretty well-learned dude. Kinda like you Animaniacs.

    Being on the show was a blast, and I can't wait for more from the Vice Pit! And I like to consider myself a cool dude.

    Sam and I have been at odds since about 2002, so it's a relationship over a decade in the making. One of the funniest, most driven and talented guys I know and I look forwards to every episode of the Vice Pit!

    Tom's cool too. ^_^
