• Announcing Symphony 2.3

    Last year, a baker once asked me, "Do you want icing on your cake?" Now, if there is just one thing you need to know about me, it would be that my answer is always, "Yes, ALL the icing." This year, I've gone back to my baker to get a new cake. And before I continue with my fictitious story, yes, I have an appointed baker, like I do with tailors, hairdressors and manicurists. I'm an important man, dammit.

"I really need someone to point to my fists", Allen quietly utters to himself.

    Brendan, standing next to him heard Allen's mumble and like a true showman, pointed to Allen's pumping fists with gusto. Jazz hands were even involved at one point during the pointing affair.
