    September 29 04:59 PM
  • Kaiwaz lmao it's not THAT BAD dude! I mean, looking back at it it's kind of corny now that I'm an adult but I was a kid and I loved that snomobile s*** and planes scare me so it was a good experience for me at that young age

  • mmbernie Great, let me know what you think!
    January 17 12:30 PM
  • mmbernie I was reading your review for To Be Everywhere is To Be Nowhere. I think you'll enjoy this band I recently wrote a review for called Prince and Beggar. The song, 'King Ghost', gives me some vibes of a cross between Vheissu and Major/Minor. If you get a chance to check it out let me know your thoughts!

    December 18 04:13 AM
  • Jots yeah I?ve got a decent ?concept? but def need to reinforce it to really sell it, so it?s not hamfisted. any extra eureka ideas are welcome so I?ll take a look
    December 18 02:18 AM
  • Brostep you've probably heard it by now but if not the new charli xcx mixtape is potentially better than number 1 angel. god Backseat and Porsche are such good songs
    December 16 10:45 PM
