Yes, things are starting to mellow out, slightly.
Ever so slightly.
Things are being Managed, Scandals are being Handled, and everything is slowly being brought back together.
After being smashed into a million fragile little pieces. Wrap a little bow around each of 'em.
No. Really, they are, now.
The 14th Anniversary was a smash. Thanks to Kenny and Laurel for helping me out with the decorations in the front, everyone who busted out in the Black Room to make it look just as stellar, the wonderful staff at the Blue Lagoon for hosting our spooky, often vinyl-encased asses for 14 years, and most importantly...
Every one of you for coming out.
Most of these are from the White Room at The Box. One will be a summation from Ninja Lounge.

Something about these fall days, you know? All overcast and brisk.
We've entered the dark half, folks.
'til next time (hopefully these more consistent updates will happen more often?)
