Hello Ladies and Gent,

It has been a while since I have had a chance to listen to the show or write in, and I have missed the hilarity that your show added to my Fridays. I am not sure if you have covered this little "gem" yet, but I think that something so... gaudy? So head-scratching-ly extravagant? So... (my sensibilities are at a lost as to how I should categorize it) "uniquely" nouveau riche as "The Hello Kitty Diamond Edition perfume for children" would fit so well into several your segments.
The ad's copy is what peaked my interest, and I really am curious as to who would want their young child (realistically speaking 'daughters' as I doubt many boys are clamoring for Hello Kitty) basking in "seductive" odors? ...with hints of margarita?

Ho-Kay then...

At any rate I want to wish a heartfelt "Happy Holidays" to each of you. Keep the hi-jinx coming!

Sincerely,

Wayde.

Hey Molly, Kelly, and Jason,

I was disheartened by your discussion on the 8-bit tie because last summer I attended a wedding where the groom and the groomsmen all wore 8-bit ties. I’ve attached a picture to prove it. Not only was it unique and different, but I thought it actually looked good. Now I should state that the groom and the bride, nor myself, are Sys admins, own fixed gear bikes, or have Space Invader tattoos. I’m just saying, it might be possible to own this tie and not be an indie hipster douchebag. Love the show guys!

Hi,
I’m a sysadmin, but I’m not emo. No tattoos. No 8-bit ties. No Fixies.

I’m also a guy. I would love to have a sockscription.

More than that, I want every pair individual numbered, so that each shipment can tell me what pair I need to throw away.

There is, literally, no end to the amount I would like to not think about/interact with my socks. Hell, I want this for clothes, period. I want an automated service that ships me the clothes, tells me what to wear, and when. I want a Mac-like slider interface to indicate my desired dress-for-the-job-you-want level, etc. Engineered clothing services. That’s what I need. (want.)

Ben
The sysadmin from Minneapolis.
