    I can attest to Chris’ comment that everyone working in an animation studio is nerdy. In fact, in the studio where I work, all company emails address us as nerds. It’s pretty awesome being surrounded by people who can talk cartoons, video games, movies, tech stuff, comics, and all other things deamed “nerdy” all day.
    Everyone at the studio who isn’t really nerdy, is usually pretty ostracized.

    Speaking of cartoons, Gravity Falls has to be one of the funniest ones out there right now. It’s refreshing to see good animation and strong writing partnered together. I just wish the episodes would come out faster!

    Thanks for another great episode!

    American Pickers is based right here in Iowa, not Ohio.

    I would certainly buy a Lamborghini before a person, name me a person more beautiful than an Aventador; plus how many people can go from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds.?
