THE STORY CONTINUES!
So we had our
So we had our
Galactic: Kids Next Door
teaser/trailer/pitch video all done!
Now we needed a website to launch it on.
So I brought in some old school web building talent,
a sooper pal who I knew before

He's the guy that taught me about
computers and stuff in the first place.
And I think he might have also invented the internets, too.
