A Bit More About the Fleshlight Launchpad
Kavi Kardoshian

I hate to be the bearer of disappointing news, but the Fleshlight Launchpad isn't quite as cost-effective as we suggested last night. After doing some research this morning (on my phone rather than my work laptop, on 4G rather than the corporate wireless, because that's how much I love you all), I discovered that the part that only costs $29.95 is just the plastic bit with straps that you attach to the bottom of your iPad. You take the Fleshlight and strap it on there and it faces you as the iPad does, so you can watch all that weird POV stuff or whatever.   Anyway, the Fleshlight itself does not come included and will still run you about $65 for the original

And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'd never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
Oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're breathing fire
Some nights you're carved in ice
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again

Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And I'l be there until the final act
I would do anything for love, and I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
Some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Maybe I'm lonely, that's all I'm qualified to be
That's just one and only, the one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you. So long, so long
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Will you raise me up? will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colourise my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Stolen Concepts and Apathy: A Three Act Play By John W Smith
James Sterling Pound

Hey you lively, out of control, insane people! …where were you? I mean thanks for coming everybody. That freak down pour was a little scary to drive through on the way to The HB, but you made it alive. You should be exhilarated. Whatever, John and I enjoyed ourselves. And hey, turns out you guys are pretty damn funny (maybe if only when we combine your concepts?). Proof in the pudding came in the way of asking you guys to text in a Top Ten list in honor of David Letterman’s final Late Night show (and wasn’t that great?!). Our topic: Austin American Statesman Headlines That Would Put The City

What's a Dad Bod?
Kavi Kardoshian

You know what, don't bother. I looked it up, and it made me sad.   I'd be willing to bet that our own John W. Smith has a dad bod, and he's not even a dad (we think). I mean, take a look at him. That somewhat meaty torso just aching to burst forth from the confines of a moderately priced sport coat. You just know that if you lost control and tore the fabric from his body, you'd uncover a wonderland of soft, clammy flesh and sparse hair. Imagine crawling into bed next to that physique. The pleasures you'd encounter. The unending desire. That Mystery Wife is a lucky girl.   The absent James "Poundtown" Pound,

John’s Porn Name Is Liberty Cabbage, James’ Is Sheep-Pig
James Sterling Pound

  Hey gang, good to see you all. Lovely night of quiz, eh? Lets talk shop! We started with the very loose them of money synonyms. Did not know Lolly meant dough, er, sue, er uh, cashola, ah forget it. Round Two we hit a wall… of sound! All the tracks were wall and brick (and abortion) related. Round Three helped us learn of the next subscription service we’re gonna get on our doorstep. Especially that PMS gift box. I’m getting that for my girlfriend’s mom next Christmas! She’ll love it. Round Four was about lil piggies, but none of you went wee wee

Chad
James Sterling Pound

Hi Highballers! Glad to be back with y’all! We might’ve felt the need to bribe ya a lil with that Hundy we gave away to first place, but shit it worked. Y’all had us scurried, but you guys came trickling in at the last minute and filled up the place. So, thanks? Let’s work on our timeliness, eh? (says the guy that usually rolls in after everyone else. Hey, I’m working on it, too!)We had a fine quiz of palindromes, songs referential of Television, Trees, Robots, and Earf. But the real hot topic of the evening, was finding the female equivalent of a Chad. Not the thing dangling/ruining the 2000 election, but rather those “people” out there
