Just checking but you're a South African Engrish Teachur right? No. I'm a Russian nuclear physicist.

This is going around and around and around and around

Nick Cave - Love Letter

It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

Yes. Portishead with 'Glory Box'. However, 'Roads' makes me shiver.

Doves: Kingdom of Rust.

Awesome road trip. Nostalgia and the difficult subject of getting over lost loved ones married together perfectly through music.

You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Don't be a cheap cunt. - Deuce Dropper
