    I've done a few others over the past year or so (Braxton Miller, for example), and I always tell myself that I'm going to do more of them. For some reason, I don't get around to it as often as I want.

    So…I hope to do them regularly, but I can't make any promises.

    Anyway, thanks for the compliment.
