It hasn’t been easy finding an angle for this blog. There’s just so much going on and even more being done. The point is to share all of that. Taking a step back once in a while, I’ve learned that the best way to share original and unique work is to create an environment for that.

Watch them go. Slaying their way through corrupt officials and greedy fat cats.
To them, for now, all I can say is thank you for keeping on.
