so, in an effort to make humans feel better, here is a lovely picture of an pretty animal which, though not very big, will totally kill you. ladies and gentledudes, i give you the blue ringed octopus:

also, as someone pointed out recently on facebook, we have significantly fewer fans than a pickle (i personally, am a fan of said pickle… great songs) or a dog in a tin foil hat. but lets see THEM put on a tour, is what i say. they will totally use in-ears and laptops. i KNOW it.

signing off, with significantly less of a “mind”, whilst mixes run of a
