You squish mind grapes and let them sit for awhile and you get mind wine. Maybe. I wonder if they give you mind antioxidants. And reduce the risk of mind heart attacks.

Okie dokie, I've gone as far as I can go with that.

So how's everyone's weekend going? Good? Awesome.

This show we cover the singles-based market in Japan in contrast to the album-based market in America in a short special segment at the beginning, and then go into the usual news. The single-review segment has taken its permanent place on the show also. Lots to look forward to in this episode!

Don't forget about Sakuracon! We'll be in Seattle the first weekend of April for the convention, where High and Mighty Color will be appearing. Hope to see you there!

Here are the notes!
