- Sound of Metal One Night Only
Blackgammon was a band comprised of Louise “Lou” and Ruben, who traveled across the United States with their form of rock. A genre that, in time, began to degrade Ruben’s hearing. Which, with being a former heroin addict, matching Lou being a former cutter, not only had the potential to rock their refrain from self-harm […]

- Second Time Around
John and I compared Covid-19 shots and the damage they could do to you. A week after the shot, the black and blue patch on my right arm looks like master sergeant’s stripes that have been ripped off. Both of us sniveled a bit at the inconvenience and pain. John told me to quit whimpering […]
