I was telling Notch tonight that those are the nicest Marqs I've ever seen... he agreed. Killer stuff, Mang.
So are those babies fixed outside, or do they carry them inside every night? Hate to see them marred by some dumbshits roaming the streets at night.

Man those are some sweet Marquesans! I dig your rendering of the classic menu tiki too, he's spot-on. Well done to TV's for recognising the talent and value of today's finest revival artists!
