the t.g.t.f.

Thank Goodness Tomorrow’s Friday.
I’m looking forward to going to Stubb’s after work to see one of my all-time favorite bands NOFX. The word through the grapevine is that they’re playing The Decline in its entirety. It’s 18+ minutes of one hell of an awesome song. I hope this rumor’s true, and that they play it […]
