Overheard during a discussion of who wears the pants around here:

Get on the Global Frequency

by Michael Alderete on 6/21/2005

You are being asked to do the following:

  1. Search Livetorrents.com for the Global Frequency pilot TV episode. (When you find it, it might look something like this.) Download the torrent, and watch the show.
  2. Read some comments of the show’s writer/producer. You can read the front page of his weblog or just some of the most relevant posts:

    3. One Last GF Question…
  3. Await further instructions on this and other channels.
