Holy hell, how did I go all these years in ignorance of the awesomeness that is the sound of Clutch? I don't know, but I'm dancing the good-time dance now, and that's what really matters. https://youtu.be/zPjkQKfmVI8 Yes, okay, this is kind of a filler post. In all the excitement of figuring out a plausible excuse... Continue Reading →
Was wondering what to write today, but I found out via a post on Amatopia that some weenie has been trying to smear Tolkien as a closet racist or something from the high pulpit of social justice resentment, and this shall not go unanswered.
