Band Prac & Musical Zines

At band practice today, I came to the conclusion that a) we need to finally decide on a name because its been far too long to have been without one, and b) I should make a few issues of "Crash" related to music.My fingers are sore from hours of guitar and it hurts to type and ugh, life.I'm really just using this blogging tool on WMZ to document zine related stuffs. So, don't mind me.Mood: Exhausted/SoreListening To: Breed - NirvanaCurrently Reading: Harry Potter & The Deathly HallowsSee More

"Not quite, but I'm somewhat close by and occasionally visit when I'm not busy with work and school. That said, I would be more than happy to help. If that's okay, of course."
