OH WOW ALL THESE SONGS ARE 2 MINUTES OF SOME DUDE FROM OHIO THAT THINKS HE'S BRITISH SAYING SOME NONSENSE OVER GUITARS THAT SOUND LIKE AN AUDIO SLOUCH. LIKE IF I HAD A FILE CALLED "SLOUCH.MP3" IN MY DOWNLOADS THATS WHAT IT WOULD SOUND LIKE. YO I WAS GONNA SAY "THIS IS SOME ANI DIFRANCO BULLSHIT B" AND THEN I WAS LIKE "CHILL I CANT SAY THAT, I DONT KNOW WHAT ANI DIFRANCO IS." THEN I YOUTUBED IT AND NOW I CAN'T STOP FUCKIN GUFFAWING B.

IS THAT THE THOUGHT PROCESS? I KNOW YOU NIGGAS AIN'T MAKING MUSIC FOR LONGER THAN I BEEN ALIVE "FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC" YOU HAVE AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE AND THAT MOTIVE IS TO GET A NUBILE YOUNG WOMAN TO ALLOW YOU TO PENETRATE HER SOFT MOIST VAGINAL HOLE WITH YOUR GROSS SOGGY OLD MAN DICK. I JUST GOT DEPRESSED BECAUSE IN A FEW DECADES FROM NOW I'LL HAVE A GROSS SOGGY OLD MAN DICK. FUCK IT I'LL JUST START A BAND AND CALL MY ALBUM "ACERBIC DUCK NOVELS"
