May 20, 2012

Sadly stand up, Victorian themed punk rock and internet radio do not make me much of a living, so I also fall back on a real job in the world of journalism. Recently I was asked to perform at the amazing Bright Club explaining what I did with my day. Below is the full transcript of my set.
