– major upgrade to shnid 131004
– Tom Thumb tracking starts with “We want Phil” chant, cause its all about star power.
– I was in my early twenties when I experienced this Scarlet > Fire first hand. It was a religious experience then & it remains so to this day.
– Jerry wasn’t ready to finish Stella. Man, does he fight to keep her going too.
