That was me. Sorry, so here is the news that you couldn’t get here yesterday, although the rest of the world saw it on tens of other internnnnnat outlets.
AND HERE’S OUR HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!!! The following is the press release we just dropped. Sam Auen from TACOPOCALYPSE has joined forces with BBC. Read on…
