We can't do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos -- they're all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods.

The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web's rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we've got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu (web site, MySpace blog) saying thank you for your time and indulgence, sorry for being late but having a hot bi girl stay at your place can throw your schedule off, and "enough talk -- let's go make with the 'biff' and the 'pow' already."
