TJ will be your sodamelier this evening. Can I suggest the Mtn. Dew Ice as a fine pairing with your Evangelion on Netflix watching experience? To deal with the news of Nintendo's settlement with the ROM websites, may I suggest a vintage Pepsi Holiday Spice? For dealing with a broken Blue Yeti Mic mid-recording, you'll need some of the strong stuff, can I suggest an imported Filipino Pepsi Blue?
