Sold 2M songs and 450k albums in first week. Apparently not everyone had a chance to already buy their stuff in the past 40 years.

Cold weather heralds the return of the Sleep Buddies! #cats

SAI offices robbed. Flipcam left behind. Sounds familiar...

SAI, seriously, the original story may be an urban myth, but the guys who robbed you are real and likely read that same myth too. Don’t touch anything (and certainly don’t brush your teeth) before you watch what’s on that Flipcam.
