    Fascinating, how liberal were the perceived tyrannical Khans?

    Once Upon A Time

    Play with your words; let them sing -

    Reports from an Abusive Workplace

    Hey Daggers! I thought a bit of memoir might be a nice change of pace. Yes, I made sure to post it to the Creative Corner!

    A couple years ago, I worked at a Halloween store. It was one of those corner ones that shows up for a few months and sells a bunch of junk items that should be sold in a dollar store for upward of $40.

    MUSIC: Oblique Occasions - Anathema

    Incredible music. The YouTube algorithm suggested this to me with me having never heard of it before. It's some of the best music I've heard in a long time. And that cover!
