you make me touch your hands for stupid reasons

about halfway through i realized that the strange computery "dramatic" voice was not part of the DJ mix i am listening to... the audio track reads the note, loops, and it's even better the 2nd time around... especially when you hear the dude kinda laugh in-between words. i'm a sucker for that.

please read AND listen to this http://youmakemetouchyourhandsforstupidreasons.ytmnd.com/

you'll thank me... i think.
