  1. I'm guilty of not commenting enough on this blog, but to not comment on Will Rigby's talent would be a sin! I'm really glad to read that others recognize Will Rigby and encourage more! Heck, back when I was a teenager, I remember seeing a dB's photo in Trouser Press and thinking "now that guy looks cool!."

    1. Oh yeah.

      All the dB's are cool, but Will is the coolest of the bunch, IMHO...
