Credit where it's due

it’s been a while since I’ve taken pen to digital paper in this forum, so let’s rock. Glad to be here.
I’d like to take this moment to give a long list of thanks...I presume I will mess this up and forget some names, at the end of the day, I’m just a man.

The biggest thanks in all the world goes out to Mr. X. For BC students, you know him as a guy who works at BC (we have to censor this because we're not sure how much he'd want us to reveal). We knew him as the guy who knew nothing about us until Disney got in touch with him. He’s remained in the shadows when it comes to our success in Hollywood and LA, but we’re on the verge of something HUGE here (and you’ll know more details later) and without X it just doesn’t happen.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: I've been told to hold off on some of the details on how awesome X was to us over spring break, so let's just leave it as he helped us out immensely. Hopefully he'll let me put the stuff up, because honestly this guy deserves to be recognized. I am SUCH a tease.]

I don’t think X will get around to reading this, but it’s important to take some time to recognize the people who have really mattered and taken the effort to help us out. X, thank you from the bottom of my heart, seriously. I didn’t know how important you were going to be, and now it’s clear. You’re the man, buddy. We love you like emo kids love sadness.

And I also want to get at my girl, Tamika Barnes with the Alumni Office. When we move out West, Tamika will be getting my BC donations. She was a makeshift chauffeur and a true friend who gave us wise counsel and was always ready to hit the Easy Button. When she left mid-week, we felt her loss considerably. Tamika, you rock as well. Oh, and she also got us in touch with Bob DeLaurentis’ daughter Francesca, who is BEAUTIFUL. Francesca, if you get this call me. Someday I hope to be a medium-to-big deal.

One more moment to everyone, EVERYONE, who comes to the premieres. You people have better things to do with your time than watch us clown around for 55 minutes, and for that you have my undying loyalty and thanks. If you think that sounds corny, x out this window, because I mean it.

Alex A&S ‘97, because that’s your last name, thank you for following the show and giving your two cents. We talk about you nearly every day...and most of it is complimentary (wink..I kid, I kid).

To all the people who have recently facebook messaged me, Joe, and the others: you take time out of your day to track us down and tell us you love the show. I am constantly in awe of that. Someday I hope to get out of my bedroom when the size of my head shrinks.

Ryan Farnan, without Boston magazine I don’t know where we’d be. You started us off buddy. Congratulations on a great season and a stellar career.

BC Basketball, thanks for all your help. It’s been great working and clowning around with all of you, Byrd and Craig in particular. We owe a lot of our success to you. Great run through the season fellas, that was not traveling. I too hate puns and love dunks.

That’s all for now. The “Behind the Beanmarch” post is forthcoming, as well as even more thanks as episode five comes and goes.

Woody,
You guys are really great -- the show is awesome. I'm in my 50s, and I'm hooked on it... My son is at BC, and told him he should really get your autograph before all of you graduate!... Thanks for what you are doing -- It's more important than you can grasp right now. And don't let Hollywood corrupt you!... Best to you,
Jay's dad

Love the show, it has become an awesome example of how great BC is. I hope somebody here will continue it after you and Joe graduate. But more importantly, I need to know the list of music in episode 4. Have someone post it pleeeease. =) Keep up the great work.
