I wanted to kick off my first story back with some amazing news! BUT sadly my sources have turned into a “who’s who” of who’s knocked up and married in Japan. WHO CARES? No really………baby boom Japan starting in 2012. Is this the end of the world they warned us about? Asian take over….I’m down. But I will throw a few interesting tid bits your way .
On a side note…….LOVE TIP?? Who doesn’t right? Sadly Blue has not mastered the device to make anime add its self, (can we get a geek working on that asap?) and I (while amazing as I am) can not keep up with the videos myself. SOOOOOOO to the point! We are looking for volunteers to help our site be amazing! No you don’t get paid and no I won’t get naked. BUT! You do get awesome cool points in chat……….maybe. And it is good learning for any future computer hacking geeks out there. Interested? Hit up my email!
