I would have replied to your thread, but you can't multi-reply in the NU/W area if you're not the creator of the thread so I just wanted to say that I'm from eastern Mass too!
Thanks for the cards tips. I'm not a huge TCG player though. I'm mostly for collecting, but I seldom do that anymore since it's kind of embarrassing for me, haha. :) Also I noticed some Gorillaz on your last.fm list. Nice choice indeed. :D
