  1. Feh Am Legend

    As the reader who submitted that Dexies/PE thing, still looking for any information on that, or the full version. Though, perhaps one of the reasons it’s so awesome is that it’s short. Just enough time to think, “yeah, that’s clever and kind of catchy” without wearing out its welcome.

  2. King of Pants

    I TORE THE PHONES OFF MY EARS
    EINSTEIN BABY
    YOU DONE BROKE MY BRAIN
    SEQUENTIAL MANTRA UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI FLEEBRORAX !*@!(*!HJSHD!

  3. WilliamJClinton

    Einstein Baby! This is the mash-up I’ve been waiting all my life for.
