Due to the massive earthquake in Japan, Friday ACE is dishing out a bare-bones episode.
Mike here! Not much to say for this countdown episode, aside from wishes that this wasn’t such a depressing road to the oncoming hiatus!
Some bits of housekeeping:
-Yes, I didn’t use the traditional “RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!” opener this week. For obvious reasons.
-Botched two titles! “The Yakuza Chronicles is “The Hardest Men In Town: Yakuza Chronicles of Sin, Sex, & Violence” and AKB’s former number one is “Sakura no Ki Ni Naro”! Didn’t catch the flubs until doing the final mix.
-And lastly, if you’re up for donating to help Japan, text REDCROSS to 90999 to pitch in 10 bucks or go to redcross.org for more info.
Two more left till Friday ACE heads off into the horizon. Don’t hesitate to shoot us questions and feedback over at fridayaceDOTousaATgmailDOTcom.
