I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.

  • Damnatio memoriae is like a venom that grows on you and becomes addictive after several listens instead of boring you. So many things to inject all at once. This is for people who enjoy the extreme side of things that blow your mind.
