This entry started as a draft the day I received this in the mail sometime early last December. The original included the following lines before the entry was lost to the draft pile: I am watching it right now, but the only reason I got to take it straight from the mailbox to the DVD player is that Gia is out with some coworkers.

There was so much bass in the mix that it had ill-effect on Mo\’s insides, so we left early. Which is just as well, because it was Botch who melted my face right off my face.

In reality, the entire goal of this post was to provide a vehicle for one of my favorite YouTube videos of all time. Botch’s Japam with interpretive lyrical assistance:
