Howdy hUmaNz!!!

Special hello to all the new folks we met at the Stick Men show!  What a night, right?

Speaking of that night, there is a new live recording of Grape Juice Plus' set now available on Bandcamp called "from the crows nest" --- referring to the area above the stage at Reggies where it was captured and where Tony Churchill was tossing those awesome projections from.

hello beautiful hUmaNz,,,

the world is wacky, our toys have evolved faster than our brains, and the cubs are on the brink...
