Daily Dose
  Watch Video The rock don't stop. It's finally Friday, and that means it's time to cut loose a little. To bring it in right, we have the Osaka four piece, flumpool.

Evangelion

Music

  Watch Video I'm way behind (like decades) on my Tokusatsu selection, but this new Ultraman X trailer is looking pretty good!
