Posted by on March 16th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means, right? No, really. What does it mean? I have no idea. I just know it’s the middle of the week and I’d really like to sleep in, or go to sleep early. But I digress. All I want to do is go full hermit mode, have a […]

Posted by on February 26th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Whoa. Kids just… I mean. Whoa. The expression “out of the mouth of babes” refers to an innocent and honest child saying something wise beyond their years. This is juuuuuuuust a bit different.
