    Hi-larious! “The Barlowe Brothers are single and ready to mingle. The rest are happily married and boring:)” As you may know, i LOVE their music and shell out my hard-earned-lack-of-money on their shows, which is why I deserve a cd. Plus, my dad would love their stuff and I haven’t gotten him a bday present yet!
