  • My uncle still had an original style water bed when he passed away in the spring of 2014. I was pretty amazed that he still slept on one!

  • Really hard to read the Random music news these days because the ad asking for money overlaps the links. The first four to six links are useless because you get redirected to the donation page. Please fix this. It’s been going on for a few days now.
