Ryan Oliver Single Launch with Silent Income & David Western (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Contrary to his melancholic and realistic approach, Ryan Oliver is an optimistic artist; a free spirited, endearing natured deep thinker contrasted by an element of Aussie cheek. The light and shade you experience in his world is indicative of the planet around, representing the harsh reality of the state of society and the complexities of everyday relationships, all taken with a grain of salt. Sonically, Ryan intertwines honest melody with spacious atmospheres, whilst maintaining a rootsy and earthy foundation. Not Having You is the debut single from former Oliver’s Army frontman and multi- instrumentalist. In 2016, feeling an undeniable urge to break free from city life and the constant pulse of Melbourne, Oliver relocated to the fringes of Gippsland to isolate himself and refocus his energies into making music that would be cathartic and make sense of the intricacies of living in a thriving city.

Not Having You tells a familiar story of a close relationship, one that may have progressed to being more intimate than they had anticipated. The notion that having a friendship with someone you know to be a forbidden fruit is still preferable to not being around them at all. Its a personal struggle and a difficult decision that many have to go through and is a contentious one.

Ryan plays all instruments on the EP and it was recorded in Yarraville with producer Matthew Neighbour who has worked with Matt Corby, Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, Jen Cloher, The Avalanches, Missy Higgins amongst others. Ryan will be celebrating the launch of the new song with full band in mid 2018, with the full EP sure for release later in the year.

New kids on the block Juno Disco take a cosmic turn with their new single ‘It’s You’ - a shimmering dance track with as much heart as it has rhythym.

Following the success of their debut release ‘Do What You Want’, Albert Salt and Flamingo Jones follow up with 4 more minutes of groovy goodness, only this time they’ve buried a heartfelt message in amongst all of the disco delight. A lovesong for the dancefloor; ‘It’s You’ is a message to a loved one that ‘we’re gonna be just fine, you and me.’

The track features plenty of powerful synthesis and an interstellar soundscape from the almighty Juno-106, as well as the distinctive vocal harmonies that have become something of a signature for Juno Disco.

Warplane Single Launch with Gena Rose Bruce and Ballads (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

WARPLANE (guitar, drums, synth/vocal) exists to explore comfort and discomfort. Melodies repeated start to feel hypnotic or unsettling. From those states, a subtle shift can feel revelatory. Like a new crack in the wall suddenly letting a shard of light in. Riffs and phrases fold back on themselves - more stylised with each repeat - slowly giving rise to unrepeatable events.
Warplane combines geometric guitar lines, propulsive drums that verge on the tribal, ghostly synths, subs that embrace or unsettle, and vocals that float like an ephemeral scent that you can’t quite place. It is a band forensically examining the less obvious choices. This is not pop music.

DRIFT is the debut single by Warplane. A stark vocal strives like a candle trying to illuminate a cavern. Smoky synth melodies emerge wafting through the ribcage of guitar, only to dematerialise. The insistent two-step tom-tom beat is a tug on the sleeve from someone whose eye contact you were trying to avoid. Drift is available to stream or download on August 2.

Phantastic Ferniture Album Launch with Sweater Curse & More (SOLD OUT)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

The mission is obvious: Don’t overthink it. That’s evident in the urgent garage-pop perfection on Phantastic Ferniture’s self-titled debut album, and in the unconventional path the band has taken to releasing it. Phantastic Ferniture is the project of old friends Julia Jacklin, Elizabeth Hughes, Ryan K Brennan and Tom Stephens, who wanted to shake the shackles of their meticulously crafted solo work to experience a second, giddy adolescence. “I’d gone straight into folk music,” says Jacklin, “so every experience I’d had on stage was playing sad music with a guitar in my hand. I thought, I would love to know what it’s like to make people feel good and dance.” Phantastic Ferniture’s spiritual home may be the garage but they were born in a bar, specifically the hallowed basement of Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney. One late night in 2014, on Jacklin’s birthday, a group hug manifested amid the pinball machines, with all ten participants vowing to form a band. “Only four of us remembered the next day,” notes Hughes. So that there could be no backing down, these four grifters booked a gig four months in the future at the Record Crate in Glebe. They advertised it as ‘Phantastic Ferniture’s Christmas Extravaganza First and Final Gig’, then got back on with their lives. “We thought, that’s ages away, we’ll definitely have songs by then,” Hughes recalls.

On the night of the show, she and original bassist Tom Capell (later replaced by Stephens) were learning songs in the car park. “We realised in soundcheck that we were playing the same songs but in different keys,” Hughes says. An hour later they were on stage before a bemused crowd, playing ‘Take it Off’, ‘Fuckin and Rollin’ (twice) and ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey. It was glorious and from the guts; in other words, everything they’d hoped for. United by fern puns and a love of leisurewear, the band met up whenever schedules would allow, writing songs and playing smatterings of dates to an increasingly devoted audience. Eventually it was decreed that this was no side project and an album should follow. Whenever the band members could get into the same room, Brennan took the producer’s role (as well as the drummer’s seat): at Sydney’s Studios 301, Defwolf and One Flight Up, with additional vocals tracked at The Sitting Room in New Zealand. The brief? More spontaneous and less technical than their solo projects. “That was the fun part,” says Jacklin. “Ryan never played drums in bands, Liz had never been a lead guitarist, Tom didn’t play bass and I’d never just sung before’. Liz adds, ‘We wanted a low level of expertise, because a lot of good music comes from people whose passion exceeds their skill”. True enough, but Jacklin’s vengeful vocal work in the climb to each chorus of ‘Bad Timing’ (with reproachful backing vocals from Hughes) has a sophistication that eludes most singers. Jacklin also felt relief at not having to imbue deep meaning into the lyrics, so that tracks like the psych-pop ‘I Need It’ and blissed-out ‘Take it Off’ operate from a more primal level. “My first instinct was to go simple and sexy, like a lot of good pop music,” she says. Hughes agrees: “It’s ‘walking down the street, walking into a nightclub, feeling confident’.type stuff” Then there’s ‘Mumma y Pappa’ and ‘Dark Corner Dance Floor’, exuberantly youthful and brimming with newfound dark power. Only a few are precisely autobiographical, such as ‘Uncomfortable Teenager’, which draws on the adolescence of Jacklin and Hughes in the Blue Mountains (although they didn’t properly meet until they were both backpacking in Peru), where they pined for the big city action of Sydney. These days, Phantastic Ferniture are resolutely a Sydney band. Hughes and Jacklin first lived together in Glebe in a large share house / rehearsal space that was home to a revolving cast of musicians, and are now housemates again years later, in Annandale. They got their start playing at open mic nights at the Excelsior and at bars such as Sam I Am in Glebe (if you didn’t catch them back then, well, they’re grateful), and the video to ‘Fuckin and Rollin’ was filmed around Glebe’s Blackwattle Bay. In fact, they’re on something of a crusade to prove that Sydney isn’t just home to the ibis and the lockout laws. If anything, the city’s like a game of Whac-a-Mole: every time it takes a beating it bounces back. “Sydney is integral to our existence,” says Hughes, namechecking Cobra Club at Waywards, the Lansdowne, Oxford Arts Factory and the Botany View as band favourites. “The music scene is more present than people give it credit for. You just need to participate and rock up.” That Christmas Extravaganza is now an annual occurrence in Sydney, and there’ll be a smattering of shows around the album’s release on the band’s own Make Out Records (it’s also out via Polyvinyl Records, Universal Canada, and Transgressive Records internationally). With Stephens currently focusing on his solo project Tesse, the lineup of Phantastic Ferniture could best be described as ‘transient’, but nonetheless, Jacklin and Hughes find it far too liberating to be relegated to the sidelines. “This band is unlike anything else we’ve ever done so there’s no rules. It feels like we just have to let go and let it take us where it wants to go” says Hughes. “It feels really good,” Jacklin says with satisfaction. “It’s like having an alter ego.”

Dancing August edition!!

Saturday 25th we welcome Emily Jane aka DJ Coco Brown upstairs to the Gaso attic for the warm-up set. Plenty of recent PBS fill-ins (including The Breakdown) have seen Coco expanding her sound and we felt the time was right to add her to the Dancing In Outer Space family.

I'm on usual late set duties and a recent trip to Japan has seen a whole lot of brand new burners make their way into my play-out box - can't wait to test them out on the dancefloor. Expect a whole lot of records you've never heard me play before.

We'll be going all night with heavy vinyl selections and big dancing sounds. Plenty of funk and disco from all corners of the universe, as always upstairs at The Gaso last Saturday of every month!

Tickets $5 on the door. Doors 4.00 PM

On Sunday August 26th, Bandmates Victoria proudly presents a show which focuses on creating a diverse, inclusive and fun afternoon of music that everyone can enjoy.

Come along to the Gasometer and catch:

Emah Fox is a musician and producer based in Melbourne, Australia. Her dark brand of synth pop pits urgent beats and ominous synths against sweet poly-rhythmic melody. The intricate production satellites around lucid vocals which shift from restrained intensity to epic and soaring. Earlier musical explorations have earned critical acclaim from ROLLING STONE ‘nothing sort of joyous’, MINISTRY OF SOUND ‘emotive vocals and fine lyrics’ and REVOLVER ‘world-class electronica’.

Moody Beaches are a new post-punk grunge project from Melbourne, featuring members of La Bastard, Hot Wings, & millennia teen dreams Sugarfiend. Having existed in the physical realm as a live music entity for only 365 rotations around Apollo, Moody Beaches are rising from the deep underbelly of Melbourne’s north to impose their three piece, harmony-driven, brooding music upon us.

The Hackkets Proudly hailing from Melbourne’s West, The Hackkets are a band made up of members with and without disability, brought together more than 10 years ago as part of FCAC’s ArtLife program and still going strong! The band originally focussed on covers, immersing themselves in the kind of universal classic hits Rock and Roll that wins over even the most hardened in-car sing-along scrooge, but since 2011 have channeled their love of such classics into their own reinvented AM radio fan-fiction.

THE NIGHT BEFORE TOMORROW Sitting sometimes awkwardly and sometimes comfortably between the styles of The Velvet Underground, the B52s, the Slits and the Shaggs, The Night Before Tomorrow play their original pop-punk songs to inspired Melbourne audiences

See you then!

That mural was let to fade, but still stands on Johnston Street. Today, it is one of only 31 murals by Haring still in existence around the world. Starting out painting illegal murals in subways in New York, Keith Haring - whose street art was full of dancing figures and bright colours - is today one of the most well recognised artists of the 20th century.

Museum '18 Presents: Laura, Because of Ghosts, This is Your Captain Speaking & More

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door. Doors at 7.30PM.

Four bands stand out as the leading lights of the Melbourne post-rock genre in the early/mid 2000s and while Laura, Because of Ghosts, This Is Your Captain Speaking and International Karate each crafted very individual styles, they are all bound by an aesthetic that speaks to the vast Australian landscape and helped to develop a uniquely Australian instrumental sound. These four bands are re-forming for a special one-off reunion show, ‘Museum 18’. These are the bands that took Melbourne post-rock around the globe, with more than a dozen albums between them, releases on labels in the UK, Europe and Japan and North American, Asian, UK and European tours.

Melbourne justifiably boasts about its rock’n’roll pedigree, producing world-renowned rock and indie acts and hosting more gigs every week than almost any city in the world - but when they write the musical history of our city, they will also need to include a chapter about the incredibly vibrant instrumental postrock scene in Melbourne in the 2000s.

Melbourne post-rock developed a cult underground following at this time, built on a special camaraderie amongst the bands and a zeitgeist that saw similar concentrations of like-minded acts in cities such as Montreal. The pinnacle of the movement revolved around a monthly instrumental curated night called MUSEUM and was held at the now long-gone Planet Café in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. The night hosted more than 80 bands over two years, with nearly all of them being instrumental acts.

Along with sold-out shows at venues such as The Rob Roy, The Corner Hotel, HiFi Bar and the East Brunswick Club, when arthouse music still thrived in suburbs now known for million dollar houses, the scene coalesced around regular appearances on Owen McKern’s Sunday afternoon instrumental show on 3RRR’s, ‘Delivery’.

Saturate yourself in the sound of Melbourne in the 2000s, with visuals created for each band by esteemed art-maker Aidan Phrase one of the original projection artists for Museum. Working with imagery from the original Museum series, Phrase will present refracted angles on the past and the present in a visual retrospective. Melbourne-based sound engineer extraordinaire, Nao Anzai will ensure that the show is an incredible immersive sonic experience.

Darvid Thor with Hemm & Danika Smith (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10BF inc. Doors 7.00 PM

On his second single Do It Again (out soon!), darvid thor (The Cactus Channel, Frida, Karate Boogaloo) further explores what it’s like to make music alone. After playing and writing in bands for over a decade, Do It Again is the latest taste of Darvid’s solo venture, and it finds real solace in the solitary.

It might seem just dreamy on first listen, with its meandering guitar lines and warm, woozy synthesisers, Thor’s voice at turns a light falsetto and a warm tenor but Do It Again handles material that’s sometimes heavy with a light touch. At times anxious and quietly anguished, tender and candid, the song is about growing-up and learning to be content in yourself.

Darvid recorded Do It Again and the rest of an EP alone in his bedroom — but for some drum/percussion help from Cactus Channel bandmate Hudson Whitlock on lead single ‘Rest of Your Life’ — over the course of a year or so. Having spent most of his musical career as an integral member of The Cactus Channel and Frida, Thor saw a solo project as an exhilarating, if daunting opportunity to learn more about himself, as a musician and as a person.

On September 9, Darvid will debut his new live band alongside Hemm, Danika Smith and Rhys Newling (live visuals) in the intimate upstairs of The Gasometer.

The Kite Machine with Zuma + Twisted Willows (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Like a brick wrapped in silk THE KITE MACHINE’s new ‘Sinister Sound’ takes heavy rock riffage and delivers it with such a sweet groove that you’ll gladly take the brain haemorrhage for it.

The verses are gooey and sticky like a kids lolly pop, expertly building up the anticipation to the chorus which pays off in spades. Taking cues from The Black Keys and Queens of the Stoneage the chorus will have you reaching for the gear stick to kick into overdrive. Then just when you thought you’d heard all there was, the solo rips whatever brain cells you have left and takes the song into the stratosphere. Keep a close ear to this one, cause Muse will no doubt be stealing it for their next hit. ‘Sinister Sound’ is equal parts rocktastic, thunderous groove and pop hit and will be on your stereo mixtape for a long time to come.

“Lyrically, ‘Sinister Sound’ addresses the struggle of trying to make it in the music business. Musically it’s our attempt at making the stompiest, loudest, fuzz-on-the-peaches pop song we could manage… to make it in the music business.” - Levi Anderson, The Kite Machine

“Utterly addictive… the whole thing is hardly tame.“ - The Ripe “The band have developed a nasty habit of making what the people want.” - Music Feeds Their 2015 EP, ‘LUNATICS’, had two singles top the Triple J unearthed charts marking the beginning of their astronomical rise on the Aussie music scene. Their 2016 single ‘Charlotte’ has topped over 300k streams on Spotify and fans are at fever pitch with the news of new material. Signing to 123 booking agency the band is taking their new single ‘Sinister Sound’ on the road giving fans the first taste of their debut LP due for release later this year. Sharing the stage with Pierce Brothers, Kingswood, Stonefield and many other Aussie Rock Royalty the band are primed to take over the stages of Australia.

Josh The Cat with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Stargazing electro-pop producer Joshua Teicher has a nack for adopting quirky characters and embodying their alternate traits. Catalysed from the art of the enigmatic alter egos of Bowie, Josh The Cat propels ‘90s pop, naughties production and futuristic ideals through a funky dance portal to the here and now. Since returning to Melbourne in 2017 after a five-year stint living and producing in Berlin, Josh released his debut EP Happiness to solid reviews at home and abroad. Now the fully fledged feline moniker is excited to reveal the first taste of his next instalment, with new single ‘I’ll Remember You’ as well as announce a pair of cosy single launch shows in Sydney and Melbourne over the coming months.

Josh The Cat’s self-produced new single brings together his gentle personality with his bold and refined production and songwriting skills, creating an addictive, bittersweet earworm of shimmering nostalgic pop, as though Beck were fronting a Pharrell jam. From dreamy and sparse beginnings centred by Josh the Cat’s crisp voice and underpinned by super-funky bass guitar, ‘I’ll Remember You’ blooms and blooms again with each chorus into a kaleidoscopic vision of warm strings and sparkly synths and glock, propelled by irresistibly punchy drums leading to a cascading sax solo.

“I wanted to write a going out song. A song for house parties and long drives. The kind of guilty pop song you sneak into a mixtape that just gives you that special feeling. I’ve always loved those nostalgic tracks like Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison, Teardrops by Womack & Womack and Michael Jackson’s Remember The Time - they’re kinda like dancefloor ballads, if there were such a thing.”

“In the production I was aiming for that late 90s/early 2000s pop sound. So when it came time to mix the track, I thought of my friend Josh Abrahams (remember Totally Addicted to Bass). He put me onto a mysterious person at the end of a phone line who went by the name Juzmo (Justin Tresidder). When Josh told me that he had worked on Holly Valance’s classic Kiss Kiss I knew that this was the right person for the job.” – Josh The Cat

Mixed by Justin Tresidder (Macy Gray, Wolfmother, Daniel Merriweather, Delta Goodrem, Operator Please, Holly Valance), mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering (Ainslie Wills, Gotye, Saatsuma, Miami Horror, Nai Palm) and recorded across Berlin, Melbourne and Alice Springs, ‘I’ll Remember You’ will drop Friday 17 August and will launch soon after with a bunch of celebrations at The Gaso Upstairs with full band debut in Melbourne featuring members of The Cat Empire & Meg Mac.

Little Ugly Girls formed in Hobart in the very early 90s around fiery vocalist Linda Johnston, whose high-kicking stage antics make her one of Australia's most electrifying frontpeople, alongside her guitar demon brother Dannie "Bean" Johnston and drummer Brent "Sloth" Punshon. After moving to Melbourne in the mid 90s, the band settled on their classic lineup with the addition of rock-solid bassist Mindy Mapp. LUGs played with the likes of Bikini Kill, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Fugazi, Babes In Toyland, and once memorably headlined over the White Stripes in Melbourne, but only ever released a handful of cassette demos and live recordings. Now nearly 30 years since they formed, the debut album by Little Ugly Girls shows them at their towering best - fierce and inspiring, with Linda's scarifying lyrics and impassioned delivery set to a huge wall of taut punk noise. It has been a long time coming, but it's as good as you could have dreamed. Supported by Mod Con and Bonnie Mercer.

The Cherry Dolls 'Black & Blue' Launch with Port Royal

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Doused in malevolent riffs reminiscent of The Stooges, the cocksure self-assuredness of The Strokes, Melbourne based The Cherry Dolls are psyched to hit the road for an East Coast Tour in support of the release of their new film clip for Black & Blue,

Following the rapturous reception of their 2017 debut album Viva Los Dolls, The Cherry Dolls are making waves nationally with an ever-increasing fanbase built from the ground up with the bands relentless dedication to touring and their DIY or DIE attitude, packing out sweat-soaked venues all over the country and strutting their stuff with everyone from The Delta Riggs, British India and Spiderbait, to DZ Deathrays.

Boasting cataclysmic rhythms and thunderous riffs wild enough to send tremors through the very bedrock of Iggy Pop and Josh Homme’s souls. ‘Black & Blue’ twists and winds its way through a dark night of a soul steeped in mystery, love and pain, while flexing and pulsing with a primal frustration and piercing guitars.

The swooping, skin-shedding swagger of ‘Black & Blue’ was recorded and produced with Alex Markwell (Delta Riggs, Pretty Littles) at The Aviary, mixed by Michael Badger (King Gizzard) and film clip directed by George Arnold at Scramble Studios.

Be sure to catch The Dolls on the road before they settling in to record album #2!

Sporting a full band of good friends, this will be one of the first live performances of the expanded project.

With live video-synth visuals, and a couple of quality supports in BABEY and JNBO, It should make for some good viewing.

With psychedelic, electronic, orchestral, and lo-fi influences, Lewis’ DIY approach combines the instruments in his room with some strings and woodwind he couldn’t play, to make some sense of it all, finding mental strength, confidence and self worth, and growing a voice to express it.

Joining forces with The Gasometer Hotel, SAATSUMA, Interstellar Fugitives , Concealed, DJ Mum (Izzi Cocks) and Hank Youngman, we're raising cash for a cause this August.

Sunday the 12th, 4-11pm.

Tickets $15 on the door, special pre-sale tickets available soon.

100% of the proceeds of this event go to SkatePAL, a non-profit organisation that works with communities throughout Palestine to enhance the lives of young people and promote the benefits of skateboarding.

All attendees go into the draw to win one of two $160 Dickies online vouchers.

Giveaways and prizes from Them People, PassPort, Dickies, Globe, and more...

This is one you don't want to miss.


In the occupied territories of Palestine, over half the population is under 21 years old.

Cultural, educational and sporting opportunities are severely limited.

Skateboarding dissolves barriers of class, age, race and gender. It promotes creativity and confidence, and gives kids a chance to be kids.

SkatePAL, through teaching skate classes, building skateparks and providing equipment, are enabling an ever-growing number of Palestinian skaters to empower themselves and inspire the next generation of Palestinian youth.

I'm going on tour, a tour of song and dance, and mindful meditation. It’s all in the name of my upcoming debut album Sunrise Chaser.

Sunrise Chaser is a tale of weekend adventures, starting when the sun sets on a Friday (or a Tuesday...

I'm bringing my band, HANDSOME and Carersorry (of Leftprojects) too!

I know I'm about to release an album, but I've created this introspective little cover of Rufus Du Sol’s Innerbloom - it's below in the comments. I also quoted myself as saying:

“I love this song because it reminds me of some of the more special moments in my life. It perfectly sums of the vulnerability of shared euphoria.... It reminds me of the more maudlin parts of extreme happiness.”

There's some dark shit happening in our world at the moment, so let's shine a little light where we can, by focusing on what we enjoy, and what brings positivity to ourselves and the people around us. I'm talking music, I'm talking lovely funny people, and I'm talking out of body experiences.

From country to city life, singer-songwriter Josh Cashman has been turning heads not only nationally but internationally with his Humble, harmonic and heartfelt to the core artistry. 2017 saw the 23-year-old showcase overseas, sign major deals, tour with our country‘s finest and release a debut EP. The Gippsland native went rapidly from performing in small Melbourne rooms and backyards at the foot of his first releases, ‘Running’, ‘All About You’ and ‘Patience’ which soon took to touring Australia, New Zealand and USA with Tash Sultana, selling out several Melbourne hometown shows at venues such as The Northcote Social Club and The Evelyn Hotel, as well as signing to Mushroom Music Publishing, Paradigm Talent Agency (USA) and The Harbour Agency (AUS).

Having supported the likes of The John Butler Trio, Tash Sultana & Ocean Alley, there lies a deep blend of heartfelt roots, among the blend of soulful and haunting melodic folk/rock which dabbles among elements of pop songwriting.

Being named in the top “8 Aussie muso's keeping the singer-songwriter tradition alive” by ToneDeaf, represents that Josh Cashman is heading full steam ahead, with 2018 shaping in an exciting way with new music set to be released very soon.

David Dondero is an American songwriter with a catalogue spanning 20 years. Originally from Duluth, Minnesota he currently lives on “the Isle of Corolla”. According to him, it’s a rental car with a population of 1 but he’s moving soon for temporary asylum in yet another rental car rambling through Australia. You may have seen him there once as a support act for Darren Hanlon. They’ve toured together many times in the US and Down Under. The two originally met while hiding from a man with a gun at a house show in Omaha. Long story. Hanlon has also released one of Dondero’s albums entitled # Zero with a Bullet on his Flippin Yeah Record label back in 2012. His songs range from the light hearted ‘Don’t be Eyeballin’ My Po’ Boy’ (written to pay homage to the great sandwiches of New Orleans after the flood) to ‘Boxer’s Fracture’ (a song written in response to the endless flow of mass shootings in America). He sings about paranoia and complacency with the song ‘Easy Chair.’ “Take a selfie with a mushroom cloud as the backdrop while you smile so proud. Set the image effect to 1945. Wonder if you’ll still be alive to see how many likes it got” A true road rambler and highway gambler, in love with the living and the dead. He’s a self proclaimed “ convenience store connoisseur” and “studies highway archaeology and the poetry yet written” throughout the world.
