June 17th, 2013 · 1 Comment · By

I would apologize for all the posts recently, but at least we have something to read? I guess I should be condensing everything, but I barely had time to dash off this morning’s post before leaving for my “real” job. I also don’t really know what day it is and have just glanced at the […]

January 12th, 2013 · 2 Comments · By

Happy Saturday y’all, Full disclosure, I’m playing in tonight’s show so I’m heavily invested in each and every one of you reading this turning out. A lot has been made of the Forgetter’s frontman being in a certain band that’s been on the receiving end of newfound appreciation. It’s even in the title of the official facebook event. Be glad, […]
