Tales from the Recession

I'm back. I've been at BAFTA every night, dealing with high pressure with work and actually out socializing! But, I'm back. I have a lot to say. First of all, The Wrestler is the best film of the year. Second of all, the economy sucks but the sales at Saks are unbelievable. Tonight, we recorded the podcast. In other words, I have a lot to say.
