WELL ALRIGHT NOW! Mailbag #100! It’s been quite a ride, and hopefully it’s far from over. Thanks for all the support and giving me so many questions to answer! In thanks, here’s a mailbag of epic proportions. Over 42 minutes, with a total of 54 questions (58 including jokes). This mailbag covers a huge variety of topics, and in my humble opinion is one of my best completely aside from its length. You also get to see the new logo and intro! You can watch it here or view the embed after the jump.
The timestamps are located after the jump as well, because there’s so many! And special thanks to Michael DiBitetto and Brawlkowz for our new logo and intro, respectively.
