Avatar 8:23am KP:

When i was a wee lad back on Long Island my father had us looking for a new house. We went into a basement somewhere and here was all of the Illusion's equipment set up, complete with voice of theater speakers and a huge poster of the band. Despite my insistence, my father did not go for it.
