The most important news first: the city approved a new trash can design and it is substantially taller than the current ones. Thoughts? Concerns? Commissioned ideas for Tyshawn?

“Also that same year, you had your ‘Bobby Worrest for Quartersnacks‘ part.” “I did? Okay. Cool.” Transworld caught up with Bobby to talk about the fact that he’s had ten (!) video parts since Right Foot Forward came out.
