The latest episode of Cortex was so so good. Myke and Grey have discussed in previous years that neither is fond of New Year’s Resolutions and tend not to have personal goal setting in the strict sense. But Grey liked the idea of having yearly “themes” and Myke stole the idea from him. Now the […]

I started off the season saying the Blue Devils were most likely to win it, even though I hadn’t seen their show yet. They remained undefeated all tour, so I suppose my thoughts were validated. Let’s talk about what I never saw coming.

New Glasses
