I'm Allen **** and I have a sickness. My name is Barnaby Harrison and I have a sickness. My name is Fred Gooltz and I have a sickness. What I like about the site is that you are obsessed about things but of course your obsessions change and move on but you've left this, you've planted a seed of obsession. For other people. And then even if you leave, that information will always stay there. My sickness is. My sicknesses are. My obsessions are William Shakespeare, Motown. [UNKNOWN] Apple products. The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Caledonian McBrain Fairies. Hawkeye Pierce. Gay rights, luxury travel and the use of paper towels. And Conan O'Brien. I've got six, so there's one missing. Fred is really the brains of the operation to be perfectly honest, I am more of the Engine that pushes it forward. I'm economy hired eye of the storm. Yeah. ANd I'm the lucky celebrity. [LAUGH] And when you can allow people to sort of crystallize the thing that they love most about the world they look incredibly interesting and the world suddenly makes sense So the website has like a very nice emotional effect on me. All three of us feel very strongly that a person's obsession is what makes them the most interesting. We celebrate that. I'm upset at people who get my name wrong. Ready? It Coming with a G, not comings with an S, cuz it's not [SOUND], [SOUND] instead of [SOUND]. S instead of G. There's only one of me. I'm coming. Thank you. [BLANK_AUDIO]
