I have always liked music. I have not always liked GOOD music. So there’s a meme-like post going around asking people to list “10 albums that made a lasting impression on you as a teenager, but only one per band/artist.” I decided to give this a shot but to be honest. It’s easy to shift […]

Time is a bastard.

Alarm-Clocks-antique
