“We’ve been waiting for more than a few minutes to spread the word of Tom Smith landing on the Shadow Team, the arrival of this edit seems to be the perfect time to do so. Welcome to the family, man!”

“A little bird on my shoulder that looked strikingly similar to ‘the Gute’ whispered in my ear that Tom has been piling clips with the slippery, mentally precarious filmer called ‘Freckles,’ aka Dave Parrick.  Confirmation from Crazy Empire Rant Guy ‘The word is, from Diamond Dave himself, that Tom’s part in the Empire video is ‘all hammers, nothing but hammers, any time and all the time.'”
