We have taken this journey before in other times and spaces in which we we're not familar with how we got here ,now as our final destination closes upon us what more should we say, do, and feel ?

Though Exmilitary has maintained a regular position on my playlist, it's taken a year and a half for someone to match that feeling of exhilaration, confusion, and total sensory overload.

Sheila is the name I gave my phone.
Living out in the country is what I mean when I say that my phone have started seeing other people. I think it's good for us, but my phone isn't handling it too well. My phone has decided to eat all the pictures on my memory card. Actually it has made the card inaccessible. I think it's being childish, but what can I say? Obviously I would feel that way.

Spring had sprung and brough with it hundreds of baby flies.
I think I did something wrong. UGH

But over the past few years the ironic finger quotes have evaporated leaving behind just disco. Regular old disco. Not ironic. Fun, funky, and as sexy as ever. And British band Spektrum are definitely keeping that spirit of old-school Donna Summer…Continue
