This is normally the place where we sing the praises of Nick Hook and talk about how our resident advice columnist has all sorts of wisdom. After all, the guy usually takes a break from his insanely busy schedule of DJing, music making, traveling, and general awesomeness to dole out knowledge to our readers every Thursday morning. All of those things are still true, but this week, we've decided to give the good doctor a break. It's Independence Day here in the United States, and Nick happens to be in Korea at the moment, so it just seemed right to give him a little vacation. That said, he'll be back next week, so send your questions to email@example.com. After taking this little breather, we're guessing that Doctor Nick is going to be especially eager to help the XLR8R massive.
