  2. It's so fun to watch you and I also learned alot!.

  3. I felt so caught when he said "also the one person saying c2 but meaning c7"
    But also appreciated

  4. does anyone know if eric is okay? he hasn't posted in a while now

  5. Hi Eric, why ask for subscribers if you’re not going to post new content for weeks?

  6. Not sure why you stopped posting on YouTube Eric but it sucks. Please come back!

  7. Some nasty sound glitches on this video. 20:07 and other after 4 minutes
