I’ve wrapped things up. It was needed.

Life isn’t over, though. Here is my new home.

It’s true. One is black and one is white, and they are even different brands.

Insane.

Anyway, to get to the real point of this spontaneous post…

If you haven’t heard already, the next Neckbrace Fest has been scheduled and the plans are gargantuan times fifty-six this time around. I’d say try with all of your might to be in attendance on Saturday, June 26th at The Real Lincoln Estate. For all of the info you need on the Fest, visit the OFFICIAL SITE.

Also, I went to a Tony Marshall/BLT/Montauk Monster show last night.

It was stellar.

My 30 favorite films of 2009 are next.
