Been a Long Time...
If you haven't heard, the Omi's purchased their first home so we have been busy moving in and working on projects. I am behind on so much. There is so much to discuss. Before we get into the Clone Wars movie, we have so much ground to cover.
As usual we are behind anyway, right folks?
If you know how the Brother Omi rolls, you know that we try to avoid what everyone else is talking about. So I want to give everyone a chance to get out there and check out the movie first and then head back here. I have yet to watch it. So you must give me a chance...
I do have to big up an event that's coming up.
