Biggest Little City in Western Nevada

Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,
This weekend was pretty awesome… we set out Friday in the early afternoon. I left work early at 3 PM… so I could basically spend the first hour in traffic to go one mile to get on the Bay Bridge… then another 45 minutes to get out to El Cerrito. After that though, the next 220 miles or so took about 3 hours (please don’t do the math CHP). What did that lead to? Getting to the Alice Cooper concert right at showtime of 8:30!!! The man is still a great performer at the age of 65 or so… but yeah, here are some pictures…


After the concert, Dizzy & I went to Great Basin Brewing Company on Virginia Ave to check out some of their local brews. They were REALLY good. Icky IPA was fantastic, Nevada Gold was a cold lagered kolsch/pale ale mix so a great all-day drinking beer, Jackpot Porter was good… and there was a milk stout that we tried as well that was very easy to drink. If you’re in Reno, check them out.
Saturday, we met up with Chick’n’Wing and went to the National Automobile Museum in downtown Reno near Harrah’s Casino. Here are some great pictures…
By the way, if you ever see this alley... go down it...

Go in here... The Awful Awful...

This will await you...

Fun fact: This is the original Reno sign you see in old movies...

Gretchen sighting...

Mmmm... where the streets are paved with pork...

Hell yeah I want a copper Rolls Royce...

The original electric car... didn't last long...

That night we went to First Bar for a scavenger hunt… but Chick’n’Wing had broken her arm the weekend before… and it’s was about 12 degrees outside, so we just decided to chill at the bar & have a few drinks while everybody else ran around for a few hours. It was great to catch up. It was my first time seeing her since the divorce to Wingman (flying in tonight oddly enough) but glad that she’s doing okay & enjoying the Reno atmosphere… which I do kind of miss. You know, cheap beer, redneck fun all around, a stone’s throw from Lake Tahoe, what’s not to like really?
Sunday, Dizzy & I drove back to San Francisco, and that night we watched “Orca: The Killer Whale” starring Richard Harris (Dumbledore) and Bo Derek (briefly). Released in 1977 right after “Jaws” success, I’m surprised that more people haven’t heard of this movie… I really didn’t until checking out movies like “Blackfish” and orca documentaries… but yeah, I liked it. Basically the story is about a fishboat captain (Harris) who sets out to get some quick money by snagging a few killer whales for an aquarium who will pay handsomely (any really). However, while trying to capture one… he inadvertently injures a female… like really bad… and then it runs into the fan of the boat… and then they hang it up and try to take it to shore… and the female was pregnant so the human-like fetus pops out… and all while the male watches. The captain is distraught by the whole thing… and eventually releases the severely injured body of the female so that he can get the ship into port… but now the male if full of the purest male emotion of all… VENGEANCE!!! He wants to exact his revenge… but how can you do it when you’re limited to the vast ocean? Well, how about destroy all of the boats in the fishing village besides the captain who murdered your family… and then blow up the town? That’ll make him come to you, right? Or the captain could just move to the coal mines or something, change of profession… but that’s not nearly as good of a story. Anyway, I say check it out. It’s not bad for a nearly 40 year old somewhat-ridiculous horror flick… but there will be some parts that scratch your heard… and the dialogue is very bad at some parts. I like tales of VENGEANCE though… and this fits the bill nicely.
Anyway, that’ll do it for tonight… as I’ve gotta go pickup up the Wingman from the airport for our own Thanksgiving Weekend shenanigans!!! Have a great Thanksgiving everybody!!!

Chapter 9: Nut Brown Ale Tasting

Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,
This was a pretty busy weekend… but first, let’s start with a Nut Brown Ale Tasting. This batch was original cooked up four weeks ago… and we were really excited since it kinda smelled like chocolate. Unfortunately I was a little under the weather this weekend (thanks to a coworker, but she took it worse than I did) but we still tasted it at the four week mark… and it was REALLY good. It had a nutty, full flavored taste to it similar to Rogue’s Hazelnut Nectar Brown Ale… but again, didn’t quite have the lingering taste, which I believe comes with a little more aging… so I’ll have to fill you in on that in a few weeks (probably during Thanksgiving dinner).

Thursday night, Dizzy & I were invited to a special early screening of the Coen Brothers next movie “Inside Llewyn Davis” starring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman & others. Now, the Coen Brothers have made some of the greatest movies in recent history like “The Big Lebowski”, “No Country for Old Men”, “Raising Arizona”, “Fargo” (which I didn’t care for… but it won awards) and so on… but they also made “Burn Before Reading” & the somewhat pointless “True Grit” remake, so they’re not infallible. The early reviews have this movie high on their list… a metacritic score of 99 right now… and even the preview was pretty interesting… so my expectations weren’t sky high… but they were up there. I… Maybe I just didn’t get it. The story is about a twenty-something folk singer named Llewyn Davis trying to make the scene in Manhattan. Basically he’s a moody artist who crashes on people’s couches, sleeps with their girlfriends (though it does take two to tango), a bit of a drunkard & just an overall asshat most of the time… but hey, he’s got a bit of talent in songwriting & performing… by which I mean playing a guitar & singing with some soul, not like… Prince or other showmen, but you get it. Anyway, during the course of the week of this story, he has an orange cat that I think is supposed to be a metaphor for his personal life because he keeps f**king up & losing it… or trying to do good & it turns bad… then he goes on a road trip to Chicago with two dudes (Goodman & Garrett Hedlund) and auditions for a big producer named Bud Grossman… and that’s where the preview stops. Is he going to make it big? Will Bud likes what he sees? Spoiler alert: If you ever plan on watching this movie, stop reading now. When watching the preview, my first thought was “I would LOVE for the producer after his performance to just say something like ‘It’s good but… I’m gonna have to pass. We’ve got a bunch of guys just like you & they know how to use a razor and show up on time’ and he would be stunned… roll credits.” Long story short, that’s EXACTLY what happens… well, probably better dialogue & more specifics… except the movie doesn’t end there… it goes on until they randomly roll the credits about 15 minutes later. You know how the Coen Brothers do sometimes. Those endings that are just… boop, there you go. Now, I would give this movie two stars. That being said, it wasn’t particular my thing. It was basically 100 minutes (that seemed MUCH longer) where half of it was them performing the soundtrack (which is very decent if folk music is your thing) but the story is just… he’s an asshat… and he doesn’t make it in the folk scene… and he sucks at life? There are a few funny moments & that awkward situational humor that the Coen Brothers do… but overall, not a great movie in my opinion. Some have said that this movie is kind of a rip-off of the documentary “Looking for Sugarman” about an folk artist that never made it but influenced MANY who did but… if that’s the case, I kinda don’t want to watch “Looking for Sugarman” now, even though I’m sure it’ll be more entertaining… because there might be a story to it… at least with an ending where he died drunk & alone. Horrible, sad, academy award nominated ending… but it’s an ending. Maybe it just wasn’t for me… and I didn’t get it… but I’m okay with that.
Saturday, I took Dizzy to a wonderful place that some friends from SLC referred to me from their visit last week, Harley Farms Goat Diary in Pescadero, about an hour south of the City. About twenty years ago, a British lady named Dee Harley came out to the beautiful coastal town and got some property… and basically slowly but surely went from a few acres of overgrowth in her property… to a fully functional goat dairy with some serious award-winning cheeses. Of course, Dizzy is a HUGE fan of goats & worked on a dairy in Sacramento… and these were some of the nicest goats (and llamas) that you could even imagine. Hell, they’re so pampered that if I’m reincarnated, I wanna come back as one of Dee’s goats. Seriously… they’re a masseuse away from living YOUR dream too. Anyway, here are some pictures…

After the tour, we headed to Half Moon Bay Brewery in time for the sunset… and to try their beers & sliders. All of which were pretty good… some more pictures…
Friday night, we watched the documentary “Blackfish” about Tillikum, the blood-thirsty killer whale that wreaked havoc all over Sea World & ripped apart… wait, let me rephrase that. (clears throat) The completely innocent orca who was taken into captivity many years ago… and has been wrongly accused of murdering several trainers in several different establishments. Basically… if he were a human… he’d be a Black Widower& locked away forever… but because he’s an adorable sea panda… sorry, killer whale… sorry, orca like Shamu… then he’s on display. Yes, that’s one way of looking at it. There are many ways of looking at the situation, whether it’s completely innocent animal kept in small quarters… or blood-thirsty scourge of aquatainment. This documentary takes the lighter side (and probably more accurate to Tillikum’s point of view) where in the wild, he would be an alpha male with throngs of orca maidens yearning for his seed… but because of being kept in captivity, he’s gone through some serious hardships, killed a few trainers… and now is… well, basically world-famous & has been put out to stud… so he’s kind of an alpha male… with throngs of aquariums yearning for his seed to make large, beautiful orcas for their centers. It’s twisted… but orcas are f**king adorable when they’re a plush toy… and isn’t that what really matters? “But how could they do this to wild animals like this?” A) Do you have any idea how much money SeaWorld & other centers make off killer whales? B) Do you think that if nobody really knew what an orca was that they would be still around or on the brink of extinction? Do you know what a common dolphin looks like? Hourglass dolphin? They’re gorgeous creatures… but because they don’t have a show at SeaWorld, you don’t know about them… and they’re facing extinction. Like I said, it’s a twisted situation. Watch the movie though… it’s pretty interesting… though obviously one-sided. By the way, have you noticed that I love playing Devil’s Advocate from time to time?
Next up was Syfy Channel TV movie legend “Sharknado” starring Ian Ziering (“Beverly Hills 90210”), Tara Reid (“American Pie”) & John Heard (“Home Alone”) which is about not only a series of superstrong tornados hitting Los Angeles (which doesn’t get tornados) but… these tornados are also carrying GIANT SHARKS who’ve survived the 100+ MPH winds and lack of breathable water in a tornado… to be thrown into the “flooded” streets of LA to eat anything & everything in their path. Who can save the City of Angels? Only a Santa Monica beach restaurant owner (Ziering), his Australian buddy, his hot 19-year old waitress & a drunk (Heard). How do they try to stop the tornados… and the sharks? Well, first he wants to get his ex-wife (Reid), daughter & son… and then they want to throw bombs into the tornadoes… because that stops them… and then take shotguns & chainsaws to flying multi-ton death machines of the sea being thrown at them. Obviously… it’s a horrible movie… but I don’t see why this one was such a big hit over the other crap that Syfy churns out on a monthly basis other than people were nostalgic for Ian Ziering (and who can blame them really?) and it’s utter preposterousnessity (I’m pretty sure I just made that word up). It’s on Netflix so go ahead & check it out if you want. Also… pretty sure they used some of the exact same graphics as “Jersey Shore Shark Attack” last year… but kudos to them for getting a sequel in the works.
Last up was a very special event that I was invited to at Skywalker Ranch to watch a movie with Dizzy & J-Mo. First off, before I get to the movie, the ranch was absolutely amazing. Obviously George Lucas has done pretty well for himself… and you can’t really hate on him for doing that. You’d sell out a little bit too. Don’t even try to front. The grounds were immaculate & the theatre where we watched the movie was basically a perfectly designed theatre for a few hundred people. Big ups to Skywalker Sound & thanks for the invite.

The movie was “All is Lost” starring the great Robert Redford… and the majesty of Skywalker Sound… and that is about all. IMDb: “After a collision with a shipping container at sea, a resourceful sailor (Redford) finds himself, despite all efforts to the contrary, staring his mortality in the face.” Simple enough of a concept, right? A man… alone… about 1700 miles from anything (Sumatran straits)… with a  hole in his boat… storms on the way… and basically everything stacked against him at this point… but he powers on… but will he ultimately prevail? It’s a concept not unlike “Gravity” earlier this year… but how many people are going to be in space? My guess would be fewer than those going on sailboat rides. The movie’s director (J.C. Chandor of “Margin Call” fame) does a great job of completely immersing the audience into the experience of the man on the boat, almost telling it from a first-person perspective most of the time… and the mastery of the sounds of the boat & the ocean along with Redford’s performance REALLY makes this a movie that you should see in a theatre. No joke. This movie is up there with “Gravity” for my picks for the year thus far. There’s basically only a few spots where Redford even speaks, mostly trying to use the radio or get someone’s attention… and yet you don’t even really notice… because it’s all performance driven and frankly, exactly as it should be. Go check it out!
Fun fact: This movie is rated R for “Strong Language” because wait for it… he says the f-word once in absolute frustration. However, “Hunger Games” will be PG-13 and I’m pretty sure there will be ritualistic killings for sport (isn’t that the premise of it?) and there will probably be worse language. “Man of Steel” killed… I don’t know… MILLIONS of Metropolis & Smallville citizens and had Superman snap Zod’s neck after completely destroying the city. PG-13 though. Let’s get serious on this rating system, Hollywood. It’s getting pretty ridiculous. Again, go see “All is Lost”! In theatres!!!
That’ll do it for this entry. Busy week coming up… and then for the weekend, Dizzy & I are going on a Reno Road Trip to see Chick’n’Wing and… wait for it… ALICE COOPER LIVE!!!!!!! Yes, THE Alice Cooper will be in concert at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno on Friday night… and my ass will be there. My dad has seen him in concert five times since 1978 & he says it’s an absolute show every single time… so I’m really excited about that. Also, we’ll be hanging out with Chick’n’Wing and her family for the first time since Oregon over three months ago… and then the following week… The Wingman comes to the Bay for Thanksgiving!!! Good times coming up… and I didn’t even mention the meeting of the SF Homebrewers Guild tomorrow night… with special guests SF Mead Company!!! Damn… it’s just a good time to be me… and I’m incredibly thankful for it!!! Have a great thankful day everybody!!!

Daily Fuggle Redactions

d Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,
How about some more news? Since I don’t have a lot of exciting stuff going on in my world just this moment...
My Kind of Coach - It may be the Preseason WNIT semifinals, but the first round is on Louisville coach Jeff Walz, who said he will buy the first 2,500 beers for of-age fans who attend the No. 5 Cardinals' game against No. 14 LSU on Thursday night. Walz's bar tab will come to $5,000. Assistant sports information director Kim Pemberton told ESPN.com on Wednesday that the promotion will take place and that Walz is paying for the beer with his own money. Fans with proper ID will get a voucher for one beer, which they can get at concession stands. "I tried that once in college, but I only got up to about 400 [people]," Walz joked to the Louisville Courier-Journal. "But no, no, no, I've never done that." The Cardinals' basketball facility -- the KFC Yum! Center -- is off campus, and beer is normally sold there for all games. The school said there are no NCAA compliance issues. "We're just trying to have a little bit of a good time here at the ballgame," Walz told the Courier-Journal. "Make sure you have a designated driver if you want to come and have a few of them. It's a little way to say thanks to all our adults who come and support us, and we're just trying to get some of our fans who haven't come out to come on out one time and get a drink and enjoy the ballgame and hopefully grab the attention of a few more fans." Amy Morgan, Louisville's assistant athletic director for marketing, told the paper that the promotion was Walz's idea. "It shows his commitment to the program and his desire to grow the program and expose as many fans as possible to their play on the court," she said. Two things. First, great idea coach! Were I within a thousand miles of Kentucky, I’d definitely consider coming to see the game. Secondly, wait… is that $2 per beer? Have I really been in San Francisco that long where that sounds like an absolutely STEAL??? Here, if you find $5 beer, you’ve basically found your bastion for nights out on the town… but then again, I’ve become a bit of a beer snob. Still though… like PBR is $3 happy hour specials and stuff like that. Hence… why I’m starting to make my own… and then perhaps sell some down the road once I have an established business… but yeah… great promotion coach! I hope it works out for you & the Lady Cardinals!
Toronto Mayor - Toronto's embattled mayor, Rob Ford, insisted on Wednesday he has zero tolerance for drugs and gangs, but also admitted he has bought illegal drugs in the past two years. Let that sink in for a moment. Speaking at a City Council meeting during which members almost unanimously urged him to take a break from his job, Ford said he cannot change his past actions, which include acknowledged use of crack cocaine. But he asserted his intention to continue to work as mayor so he can carry out his promise to save money for Toronto taxpayers. Asked if he had bought illegal drugs in the past two years, he replied somberly: "Yes, I have." Ford, elected in 2010 on a promise to end the City Hall "gravy train", admitted last week that he had smoked crack cocaine in "one of my drunken stupors". Wednesday's call for him to step aside came in council's first meeting since that admission. "Our city's reputation has been damaged and continues to suffer," City Councillor Jaye Robinson read from a non binding petition signed by 30 of the city's 44 councilors, and passed by a vote of 41 to two. "Together we stand to ask you to step aside and take a leave of absence to address your challenges privately outside of the public eye." Right, like that’ll happen now. Councilors will vote later on a separate motion that asks Ford both to take a leave of absence and to apologize for "misleading" Toronto residents… by telling the truth? Council has no power to force the mayor to step down or take a break unless he is convicted of a crime, and Ford insists he has no plans to go, or to seek treatment. "I am not an addict of any sort, so I am not quite sure why you are saying that I need help," he told councilors during an hour-long grilling that centered on his fitness to remain the city's chief magistrate… by the way, at the taxpayer’s expense since we (the royal hypothetical we of Canada) are paying taxes. "I can understand how people would perceive my behavior. The reason I drank or did drugs was not because of stress, it was out of sheer stupidity. That's all it was." As the questions continued, hundreds of protesters gathered outside City Hall, many of them calling on Ford to step down… while millions continued with their daily lives. An Ipsos-Reid poll conducted for several TV and radio stations showed that 76% of Toronto voters think Ford should step down or take a leave of absence, while only 24% agreed with Ford's insistence on staying in his job… but these are among people who didn’t insist they were on a no-call list & to never call them with surveys.  The scandal of the crack-smoking mayor broke six months ago, when the Toronto Star newspaper and media blog Gawker said they had been shown a video of the mayor smoking crack, an allegation that Ford spent six months denying. Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair has since confirmed the video exists, and Ford admitted earlier this month that he had indeed smoked crack. The events brought back memories of the scandal that enveloped former Washington, D.C., mayor Marion Barry after he was filmed smoking crack in 1990 (and reelected a few years later, ‘MERICA!!!). Ford's admission has made him the target of late night-talk show jokes and put the international media interest on Toronto, including extensive coverage of Wednesday's City Hall debate on U.S. networks. Asked on Wednesday if more embarrassing revelations could come, Ford said: "As far as I know... you don't know if people are videoing this or doing that. I don't know what's out there right now. But everything that I'm aware of is out there." Last week, the Star bought a separate video that showed Ford in an expletive-laden rant, making threats to unspecified persons and pounding his hands together. Ford apologized and admitted he was "extremely inebriated". But more information is likely. A Superior Court judge on Wednesday ordered the release of more details from a police investigation that resulted in drug-trafficking and extortion charges against Ford's friend and part-time driver Sandro Lisi. A heavily redacted 474-page file was released two weeks ago and showed police had had the mayor under close surveillance for months, and had recorded numerous meetings with Lisi in parks and other venues. The judge ruled on Wednesday that some of the redacted portions be revealed. Ford said on Wednesday that his lawyer had advised him not to cooperate with police investigations. So… yeah, Toronto’s mayor may be in a bit of hot water… but whatever. The real question is… Is he doing his job? Or rather, was he doing his job well before all this came out & he spent 90% of his day answering reporter’s f**king questions & the other 10% eating ham & smoking crack? What are the results? Do we ever really hold our public officials responsible for their results? If you just spent your entire time at work going around & shaking hands & kissing babies when you were supposed to be helping the economy, infrastructure, schools, etc… wouldn’t you be fired? Yes… maybe if you were smoking crack on the job, that’s usually pretty quick case for HR… but if that’s it, then kick him out… and any other official whose doing this stuff. If not, or there’s no protocol for it, then shut the f**k up & let him do his job. He obviously has work to do in helping run the capital of Canada. “Ey hoser, the capital of Canada is Ottawa, eh!” And the capital of California is Sacramento but who gives a flying f**k??? My point still stands.
Navajo Bronze? Burnt Injun? – Two of my favorite things to talk about in this one… Marketing Strategies… and alleged racism. Club Sun Color Studios, a tanning salon based in Alabama raised controversy by posting an ad on its Facebook page promoting a Thanksgiving tanning special they were running. As reported by WPMI Local 15, the ad many find offensive shows a brunette woman dressed in a Native American costume next to a blonde woman with lighter skin dressed in a pilgrim costume. It reads: “The Indians brought more than just ‘corn’ to the first Thanksgiving…they brought Sexy ‘Color!’”
Club Sun Color Studios' controversial Facebook ad
Club Sun Color Studios' controversial Facebook ad
I’m not exactly sure why the word ‘corn’ is in quotes, but Club Sun representatives stated that they did not mean to offend the public with their sunless spray tan advertisement. David Arnett, Marketing Director of Club Sun apologized for the ad and said, “I myself am Native American, and I am very proud of my heritage and skin tone. The thought process behind the ad was simply a play on my own ‘sexy color.' Again, I apologize for any offense and misunderstanding." Wait, David Arnett? I’m going to have to Google whether he’s really Native American or not. If so… Alabama? Tanning Salon? Really? Anyway, the ad is now gone from the Club Sun Color Studios Facebook page (yet all over the internet somehow… hmmm… maybe he really is a marketing director). WPMI asked Mobile, Alabama resident Ebony Monigan what she thought about controversy and she said, "Whether he's a Native American, the words still offend people." The station also spoke to Club Sun’s Vice President of Sales, Larry Andrews who said that the message was simply on an “Innocent in-house flyer,” adding, "I think this day and time people look for something to complain about and something to, to stir, stir the pot. I mean, if they would look for more positive things in life we'd have a much better Thanksgiving and holiday season." Despite that statement, Club Sun representatives said that they would be cautious about future ads. Probably a good plan… then again, it’s making the rounds on the website… and I guess they have a point, no matter how offensive it may be… a little melanin tends to give a sexy tone.
HOW Is This Surprising? - A two-year-old girl has been severely burned in suburban Atlanta in a freak accident after gasoline poured on an outdoor slide to make it slicker ignited from static electricity, police said on Tuesday. The toddler and her four-year-old sister were playing on a swing set on Saturday when the gasoline was put on the slide (WHAT?), said Keith Brooks, chief deputy of the Walton County Sheriff's Office. Investigators do not know which of the two siblings poured the gasoline (Wait, WHAT??? A 2 year old or a 4 year old poured the gasoline???) but determined, after finding no other ignition source, that static electricity sparked the blaze, Brooks said. "This was a freak accident. It's definitely strange that something like this would happen." ARE YOU F**KING INSANE??? It’s strange… that gasoline would ignite? HOW??? The two-year-old was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Atlanta and put into a medically induced coma to help her cope with the pain from her critical injuries, Brook said. Grady Health System, the hospital where she was taken, declined to comment on her condition on Tuesday. No charges are expected to be filed, the chief deputy said. Sigh… it’s tragic… it’s certainly tragic but… is this a thing? Does this happen at kids parks all over America & I just don’t know about it? “Well $teve, a gallon of gasoline only costs about $4 & it decreases viscosity on the slide so that you can go quicker… like a water slide.” Doesn’t water cost like… five cents a gallon? “Well yeah but… gasoline is much more slickerier… and water evaporates too quickly here in Georgia.” Uh-huh… so because water evaporates faster… and don’t get it twisted, gasoline evaporates too… and it’s vapor is highly explosive… but because water evaporates, you pour highly flammable gasoline on a children’s plaything so that they can slide down at a faster velocity? “Yes’r.” Okay, well… I guess if an adult is handling the gasoline then it’s… “Oh no s’r… the kids tend to handle that all by themselves.” (stunned silence) “I said the kids tend to…” I F**KING HEARD YA!!! Not sure what to say about this story other than to pose a question. We’re smart, right? Human beings? We’re capable of incredible things, right? Highly intelligent & all that? Just checkin’…
Batman Update - A Singaporean man with an unusual superhero-like name turned out to be a villain who consumed drugs and stole from his brother. Batman bin Suparman, which means Batman son of Suparman in the Malay language, was jailed on Monday for two years and nine months for various offences including stealing his brother's automated teller machine card to make withdrawals, media reported. The 23-year-old unemployed man had also broken into the office of a firm in western Singapore to steal money and taken heroin. Batman, who has his own fan club on Facebook, became a social media sensation after an image of his identity card with his unusual name was circulated online. You’ve all seen it. Keep your eyes out for a Tosh.0 Web Redemption down the road… I’m guessing at Six Flags over Singapore or something with the DC Comic characters involved in an intervention. It could happen. Stay away from heroin kids… it can even turn Batman and/or Superman into a pitiful being turnin’ tricks to get their next fix. Hmm… I think I just had an idea for an interesting spin-off… The Dark Knight Sniffs starring a coked-out Bruce Wayne. Patent pending.
Anyway, that’ll do it for tonight. Have a great day everybody!!!

Where Should I Go Next?
