Apparently, according to the president and his cattle prod, I am required to turn up and actually post things.  As luck would have it though out man on the spot with the Cosplay Ball wanted to talk to you again, thus limiting my need to say anything  to this bit at the top.  Without further ado onward to some comments from Marcus:
