    More Power Pop than You! - Defining the Bangs

    Stop or You'll go Blind! - Just ask Ray Charles!

    In his autobiography, RAY CHARLES wrote that the worst thing about being blind was that he couldn't tell if anyone was watching him when he jacked off. Since reading that, I have been haunted by visions and nightmares, as if his irrational phobia ha...

    SuperDJ! - The mild-mannered world of Simply Jeff
