Whats going ON?

Things have been a bit slow around here, but we should be moving on soon with some new interviews and some events and a write-up on Assimilation and Multicultralism.

Yeah not bad, i mean you know i still got a year of my our sentence to serve, so they're only as good as they can be right now. But life is cool. The theme for the carnival this year was throwing it back a little to the years when it was more lively, but forget this weather. Peace. Sean.
