Cliff, you said you went to Cornell, right? I've been laughing over this little cartoon. The guy is originally from Buffalo, and went to Ithaca college. But, he was also the in-house DJ at the Virgin megastore for ten years, I believe. There are only two episodes out at the time: laughingsquid.com...
