While trying not to be consumed in depression about elections in my country of birth today, where the state of politics is at a depressingly all time low and the best case I can think of is a gridlocked hung parliament, I find the best medicine is always live music. So here we go, drink […]
Happy memorial day weekend! As we consider those who have died while serving the country, it’s also a good time to be grateful that rates of war and battle deaths have gone down dramatically.

Well, it seems […]
