The Handroidz – Vanguard

To coin one of Fourbearjrs favourite phrases, tonight is going to be a quick one, and i'm just going to opt for a track that has long long been a favourite of mine, The Handroidz – Vanguard.

Down around the 94bpm range it's...

Ceiling Demons – Even If

It's been a tough weekend. What should have been a restful couple of days with the family turned into a stress-athon with sickly family, overflowing workload and then my closest and dearest off to visit family and friends for a week or so, leaving me home alone and such I find myself fending for myself. It's a tough life, but I've been cheering myself up by blasting music at unsafe, and neighbour annoying volumes (don't...
