Commie Francis (host) 8:16:43 PM
well it will be what it will be but most of the stuff i have is chill
jimbeaux 8:19:29 PM
Dang, that Premiers song is great! Thee Headcoats really took that to the bank (not a bad thing in my book)
Christine Duffy 8:20:51 PM
Keeping it chill & pastoral, and reading a book sounds perfect. That's what I'm doing (reading).
Christine Duffy 8:21:15 PM

Commie Francis (host) 9:25:24 PM
