One Response to “The 2011 Yappies — Part 1”

  1. Austin Lugar says:

    Fun stuff. I think more people need to see 13 Assassins and Melancholia because they’re awesome. Also I hate to be that guy but the audio is really bad on Chris’s end; practically unlistenable because it’s glitchy for almost 40 minutes.

    Also here’s my song:

    WAR HORSEEEEEEEEE!
    Riding though the battlefield!
    WAR HORSEEEEEEEEE!
    Sure would like an apple now!
    WAR HORSSSSSSEEEEEEEEE!
