I Thought I Was Cool – A Contributor On Vacation

Writing is hard and I am a dork. Vacations are hard too. I’m not good at them. I spent my vacation time doing a lot of heavy lifting and sleeping on couches. I don’t think this is what normal people do. Should I be on some tropical beach somewhere drinking some kind of fruity drink with a […]

Killah Kuts Belong In The Trash

Killah Kuts

Killah Kuts belong in the trash. Nobody wants these awful wastes of vinyl. I cannot stress this enough. They’re awful to contribute, nobody buys them. The only redeeming factor they have is possibly a source of a useable generic 12” jacket or perhaps an emergency replacement cut-off wheel for a Dremel tool. Even then, it’d […]
