    No bizzare, half ape men? I guess the Altered States’ isolation tank sensory deprivation research has reached its full, finalized morphing phase.

    I’m so glad you found the trailer for The Last Exorcism funny. I unnintentionally burst out laughing in a crowded theater, and recieved angry glares from a few, nearby audience members. It momentarily made me wonder if perhaps there was more wrong with me than I initially thought… not that this really disproves that.

    Jeremy claims he needs more photos of us. He could recyle as far as I’m concerned, but I guess we have to get him some more somehow.

    not that this really disproves that.

    Yeah, I was going to say that. Whoever was with me — I think it was “Tonberry” — laughed, too. Not sure if that helps or hinders.
