Why, No, We Didn’t Forget About the HLS Top 25!

Ok, so last week was nuts. Staff was busy and their genius editor-in-chief forgot the spreadsheet that calculates everything was on his work laptop that was at work.

My bad.

Anyways, we pick back up once again, although both Twibby and Biscuit sadly were not able to vote this week unfortunately. No matter though, the show must go on!
