Pretty sure I asked for pecan sandies.
by Ryan Arthur

Attention, punks: the Sunday News Recap is back after a health-related hiatus, and is ready to roll with the last sev-uh, FOURTEEN! days’ worth of reviews and features from the crew here at eFC/HBS. We’ll also run down the box office numbers for the weekend and prepare you for the week ahead. I’m Ryan, and does this sound right? "In the beginning God created the Heavens and a transvestite who pooped mozzarella dinosaurs?”
