Okay, it’s been a while since anyone has posted here, but we may be back. They’ll be an update later on today with a specific page for meeting dates. Look out for that gripping enhancement.
Another gripping edition of Blab. We talk about 12 Angry Men, !2 Monkeys and (approximately) 12 other things.

Let it be know that henceforth deliberately avoiding information about a film prior to watching said film shall be known as “Doing a Kim.”
