I just reread Entropy’s masterpiece and it’s inspired my entry for this year, a little something I like to call: “Fuck It, I’m Out”


One downside of sharing all these is raising expectations and concluding we’ve all lost a step.

yeah right

Fuck that.


“Now Billy, we don’t want you eating any more candy. To show you how serious we are, we’re sending you to your room for the next two hours, where you’ll be left alone, unsupervised, with all of your Halloween candy.”


I’m going after The Last Yard this year.

You hear me @entropy? I’M COMING FOR YOUR CROWN!
