    Yes! It’s funny but this guy really could have a metal band on the side…This is just what happens to pay the bills?

    I was wondering how you were going to work it in and you’ve done it beautifully. I bet you can get some of those camel sounds in from Egypt, or perhaps King Tut groaning from deep within his lair? I can think of countless options; shoot, I’ll give you an exhaustive list of at least 2 elements if you just ask me. Well, on second thought this whole thing was your idea, so maybe you should just keep using your ideas? Nice.
