Nov 30 | Politics

It’s November 29. It’s 9pm. It’s 63° F, 18° C. Save our world. politics /pl-tks/ n.: In its most primitive form, the ugliest art. May be preceded by the adjective “dirty”, which involves negative comments/lies about the opposing party in order to make oneself better suited for the job (though in reality neither party is […]

Nov 5 | A capella and all sorts of work
