Hello fellow Bunny Hole Dwellers! Welcome, yet again, to another stirring episode of Down the Bunny Hole!

The bad news is, Zach had a rather shitty experience at the local Hot Topic store. What is this experience, you ask? Well, you’ll just have to tune in to find out!
Further on Down, the boys discuss the goods and bads of social networking. This incoherently segues right into Zach’s awesome story about sharing +44 with a brokenhearted coworker. Then, in the traditional vein of the Bunny Hole itself, our hosts discuss a couple different articles that were centered around Blink 182. One of them being why the author feels that Blink 182 should go on hiatus again. The second article is an interview with Tom DeLonge about To The Stars and the next Angels and Airwaves album.

Later on in the discussion, our hosts break down just how much of a change Travis really brought to the band.
More on down the hole, the boys vent their irritation with a certain a Top Ten List that Packie brought to the table. Inspiring such an endeavor to work on and release their own Top Ten list that will involve more than just tracks with commercial success. Be sure to stay tuned for that!
