Hey i’ve been a fan of zune alot more lately and have gotten very interested in zune communitys, right now my favorites are you guys, i think its called zune boreds, i dont give a damn my zune is clearly better than that thing {the facebook page one}. but i really like your guys podcasts, that facebook page [the i dont give a damn one] has a good newsletter, and zuneboards does a good job posting news, but your podcast is awesome and i can take it on the go. granted sometimes i think the michael guy is a tv maniac but other than that your podcast keeps me entertained, and gives me something to look forward to after work and all. to you guys, and all the other communitys, thanks for delivering news that, otherwise i would have no idea about. thanks

o could u guys read this on the podcast, that’d be cool
