Beastly Bits #135

It's the last time these bits will ever come under the pretense of "I'm at this one old day job..." and that is a great feeling to have on this Friday morning. 




You don't what tastes so sweet without dipping in the sour, and we're on the path to the sweetest and tastiest and beastliest rad times. So let's bit!

Florrie, as promised, is back again this week with a new song. You Wanna Start Something is the latest in her "I'm giving it all away for free" effort. It's got that Edge of Seventeen guitar rumble riff coupled with a slightly more rock-tinged tone from the singer, and yep, it's amazing as expected.

Um, you guys...this weekend was killa rad, and for many a good reason. Betwixt friend hangs, shows, parties, and a splash of something awesome (vague...yep), there is a perma-grin on my mug and it's not going away any time soon.
