I prefer Three Hundred Pounds of about a fat mans boldness. Three hundred pounds of heavenly joy. Geez and I only need 70 more pounds to get there.

Here's some lyrics from what I'm listening to at the moment.

If you want to spank your demons and make them pay, then baby I'm your man of the hour.

Monster Magnet, bummer.
