Good lord, people, KISS is moving on another day. You want Hestons in your house? This is how you get Hestons. :naughty:

I'm sitting here, chuckling my tits off. :mrgreen:

Thank you, strange benefactors.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

wait, am I voting OUT or IN?
For the prelims, you're voting in because we're trying to narrow down a huge amount of albums. Once we're at 10 or so, then it switches to the survivor-style voting out.
I fucked up, i was trying to vote KISS out. Eat to the Beat is what I would vote for.
We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

You have brought shame (read: Heston) to this house.

Tho now that I think about it, I kinda hope Dynasty makes it to the elimination stage just to see 100%-Heston vote it out.

Ok, by my reckoning Dynasty is twice as good as Metal Box.
Reckon this 2 x 0 = ____
