    You should just feel so ashamed of yourself right now.

    Like, really ashamed.


    Really.

    this band is missing something

    I'm not sure what it is- but it's essential

    or it could be the unbelievable amount of hype I hear

    edit: I'm not calling them bad musicians, or anything

    I also like Flogging Molly and Pendulum.

    This is not an argumental path that ends well for you, friend.

    You know, as wondrously 80s as Light Up The Night may be, I think the chorus of No Easy Way Out may actually out 80s it.


    EDIT: ...aaaand it's apparently a cover of an actual 80s song. That would explain it.

    3) Q: Hey, Commander, have you ever seen a big bear riding in the back of a pickup truck?

    A: If you had asked me that question a little over a week ago, I would have slapped you right in your eye…. but time has a way of changing a man. Things are different now. I’ll never forget. Still looking for normalcy. Freedom Fries. Have you ever seen something so powerfully raw and beautiful that it sucks the tears right out of your face? I stand before you now, a new man that has seen that “something.” For me, it took the form of a Majestic Black Bear standing in the back of a pickup truck that had a Dreamcatcher hanging from the rearview. Proving a lifelong theorem of mine, that dreamcatchers can land you a pet bear…and now I’m in the unexpectedly expensive process of buying a warehouse full of dreamcatchers…not bears. If my calculations are correct, you don’t need to buy bears because one dreamcatcher is good for at least one bear. *Actual Bear to Dreamcatcher ratios may vary due to geographic location*
    If you have any information on the whereabouts of said bear, please respond to this Craigslist ad that I posted.

    Does this mean it is now available to buy? I can't tell, it's early and I am groggy.

    oh wow

    there's this one song, How The World Fell Under Darkness, that you should basically picture playing while the fictional megaman city is transformed from this backwater mining town to a giant metropolis

    before this song, the album is mostly stranded rock

    after this song it shifts into amazing 80 music
