Well 2016 really fucking sucked. Between the worst election in US history and hella celeb deaths. In between this recording and release two more celebs have died. Carrie Fischer and Debbie Reynolds have kicked the bucket in late December. Also RIP Harambe of course.

2016 personally for Chip and Cern was a good year. New house, good jobs, health, etc so that is good. Chip is quick to point out that the Giants didn’t make the playoffs again.

Chip tangents into how homo erotic “Rough Boys” by Peter Townsend is.
