He's got such an awesome voice... Can I hire him to just come over to my house and have a conversation with me? :p

Dang...I had no idea this was coming out. Love these so much. AC has the coolest group of actors.

Also Loomer...would you ever consider uploading ACB matches again? Maybe get some of the old players together and run a few games? I miss that game, and I always enjoyed your commentaries the most.
