:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Text from 'Step It Down' reads: "This is a beautiful play?This play shows you how people can borrow from you and never pay it back. And when they say, 'I'm going to bunkum,' it means, 'I'm going to wind up this borrowing.' I like this because there's so much to it, there's so much meaning in it." [Source: Step It Down]
