Die young and penniless, 2016

Me at the beginning of 2016; me about 5 hours ago, wishing 2016 would GTF off my planet already. pic.twitter.com/BsXMiJzBMo — Messenger Puppet (@messengerpuppet) December 13, 2016 I really thought this was going to be a Pon Farr kind of year (ideally without the treachery).

The End

Mötley Crüe: The End was tonight. I love Nikki. Tommy is an atomic gerbil on meth. Mick Mars died 10 years ago but refuses to move to the next life. But God damn you, Vince Neil! Here is my 4-word review of Mötley Crüe: The End: VINCE NEIL[‘s] MONITOR TECH*. Vince has a goddam teleprompter. I […]
