Episode 486: the one where you get me a time machine & a plane ticket, POST HASTE, and/or you reverse the Earth's axis so that it can be 2005 again.

A thing happened that I did not want to happen.

This event occurred and I was NOT THERE,
trying to contain my excitement while sitting in the audience but failing extensively because my little music-nerd heart would be going pitter-pat. Sigh.
