Cult Leader

Sleep is for the Weak

If you feel like Brian sounds “tired as fuck” in the episode, you’re not alone…Nick already pointed that out.  You are not wrong either…I was shot.  I still made it through this jam-packed and kinda long episode, giving you 100% of the 50-60% capacity I was at because the show must go on….

Leftovers and Fresh Meat

So, now that you have recovered from your food comas and Black Friday shopping antics, you can can relax and check out some new tunes and reviews.   We were going to do one of these reviews last week, but, much like the album we reviewed, that show ran longer than we intended. We also have a live review!  It derails a bit into a discussion of setlists, production, and the overall execution of concerts, but that’s just as interesting a topic to get involved with, in our humble opinions.
