Bonus Interview: Jeff Garvin -
It's a Buy One Get One and it isn't even our birthday! After checking out the Must See TV video store event of 1995, "Caroline and the Folks", we were thrilled to get to talk to Scott the Video Clerk himself -- Jeff Garvin!

Inspirational stuff -- way better than Sorority House Massacre 2...
