Beastly Bits #116

I think the general consensus, being that the weekend seemed to be amazing for all, is that we're already over this work week and primed for another Fri-Sat-Sun stretch of radness.

Sure, leaks are inevitable. But there's something to be said for having a physical copy of an album that makes the listening experience that much more pleasurable. Tangible and rad...we dig it.

Beastly Bits #33

IT. JUST. KEEPS. COMING. DOWN. The snow, that is. After a few days of weird wintry mix here in NYC, the snow finally came to a fall. And by fall, I mean a huge dump of drifts and dastardly accumulation. Fittingly enough, our inbox keeps stockpiling up thanks to a superfluous couple of days.
