Matt’s first tat

OH MY GOD I LOVE HER SO MUCH. OH MY FUCKING GOD I AM SO HAPPY. See? I toldja.¬†ūüôā I am in love. That’s all there is to it. I am in love with my own arm. In my humble opinion – which is, at this time, admittedly not too terribly humble – Lisa did… Continue reading Matt’s first tat

Review: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END

And Episode III’s fabled history is an important… Continue reading Review: REVENGE OF THE SITH
