    Whoa.
    That's why I like this place: I learn something every time I come here.
    And today I heard this guy for the first time.
    He's good. Damn good.

    I don't believe anyone has mentioned this guy yet. He also has great taste in shoes. Who else wears boots straight out of a 1950s Sci-Fi film?
