That was a great interview, and the Pi song at the end was a special treat, but we never got to find out Chris' story about his dad and the Guinness Book of World Records.

I'd never heard the Pi song before, and I was expecting something kind of jovial and goofy.Boy was I wrong. That was pure fucking musical awesome. That was, as they say, hot shit.
