The ecstacy of Smooth McGroove's VG a cappellas

This isn't a particularly exciting holiday tale. It doesn't involve an abominable snowman, or misfit toys, or an elf that wants to be a dentist. It is just a simple story about something that happened on one dark and unassuming 4th of July night many years ago. A night that I will never forget for the rest of my life.   read

As someone with a lot of experience in the realm of Sentai, let me say that first impressions dont always hold, and those awful suits that look like they belong more in a bike race might look great in motion! Otherwise, theres always your imagination!
