Spocom Anaheim 2017 Coverage… Part 2…

I was driving around the other day and while I was sitting in traffic, I was trying to think of reasons why I enjoy going to Spocom so much. I mean, I wasn’t looking for reasons to stop going or anything, I just wanted to figure out why I was just completely okay with staying at the show from 8:30 AM until 11 PM. Most of the time I’ll just kind of drop off a car, leave for a few hours, eat, take a nap, squeeze a turd out, and go back at the end of the show but I don’t know, I kinda like going to Spocom still. After a while, I sort of figured it all out. Instead of writing it all out, however, I’ll save it for the upcoming podcast that we’ll be recording tonight. Once that’s done you’ll get to hear all about my ramblings instead of having to read it all. I’ll toss it up whenever that is finished but for now, check out Part 2 of the 2017 Spocom Anaheim Coverage. There is still one more set after this so come back for that. Either that or the Podcast will go up next depending on which one gets finished first. Enjoy!…
