Happy 1 year P2M. This shit's the dopest of dope! Thanks gang. :D Edit: I'm finishing up the last 5 minutes right now, I recommend every forum user give a listen. Synthia is just the right amount of buzzed to let her gaurd down and really shed some light on the goings on around here. Cool chick, great 'cast.

@getyeryayasout: wow.. Thanks a lot man. Look forward to doing a show soon.

Synthia earned her P2m stripes in a big way. She put up a great cast for the community.

Absolutely, she was open, honest, and her passion for her job as well as gaming, really shone through. If more of their staff would reach out, it could really foster a greater sense of community at GS, maybe build this place back up a bit. I was surprised to find out just how small a team is working behind the scenes, and, legit lol'd when AM brought up McShea. Good stuff, my man.

I seriously heart her after that cast. You can feel her passion for the site and that she's one of us. Brilliant cast by everyone and GS should put this on the front page!

10/10 you guys. I just haven't had time to listen to some of the casts recently, now I'm going to have to go download a few to listen on my ipod :P

@blue_hazy_basic: thanks hazy! Casts like that one are why we started p2m... It was as much to record as it was to listen to, for me.

I'll place the download link for this cast on pointinsertion.com our iTunes feed has been down a few weeks, because we're still working on migrating the rss feed.

If this is what P2M ends with this season, I can only imagine what S3 will have!

Synthia was fantastic.

I wonder what @DigitalDame Synthia would have to say about the System Wars Awards shutting down because there wasn't enough activity. That's death via hunger.

Yo, I'd like to give a special shoutout to @TheEroica, @Heil68, and even the miserable rich troll that is @Animal-Mother

It's not just a case of getting my account reinstated but actually wanting to come back to this community. I'm truly lucky to have buds like you that gave me the opportunity to talk to Synthia and be a part of this community's best aspect, Pedal to the Medal. Thanks so much guys. Really, I can't be appreciative enough.

Also, I fixed my smoke detector. Technology has been trumped yet again! And for old time's sake:

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

@Blabadon: I for one, am glad to see your agitating ass back here. The past couple months a certain unnameable something has been missing from my life, but I didn't know what. Now I know...I needed more Blab in my life. P2M has literally made my life measurably better. A true internet miracle!
