Posted by on February 18th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Being on the internet as much as I do makes it easy to get cynical about life. You see enough weird or inappropriate or petty stuff, and it makes you question humanity. Or at least its goodness. My father used to say the internet was a mile wide and an inch deep. But that was […]
