In editing the podcast I noticed … Continue reading

BTW, in case you thought Kelly was trying to pull a fast one on saying “Stand” was an Olympic song, check out track … Continue reading

And since we both love the song “Sex, Death and Money”, I wanted to include something on it… and I found this treasure. SMLTBCBPB (Song … Continue reading
