Freak Of The Week: American Idiot

Ok, maybe that’s a little harsh. But it certainly isn’t American genius. Let’s set the scene.

Freak Of The Week: H2 El Jefe

Jesus loves me, This I know, Because El Jefe tells me so! I’ve been singing that all day, because today is the glorious day that I saw this: The story is so great, I couldn’t even begin to make it up. So I had to go to the dreaded Federal building to get a new passport. And although the Federal Building is one of the...
