D:Frag MCR #9 - Manchester’s DiS guide from =RaZ=
Well it’s been my birthday this weekend and as you’ll be expecting I indulged myself to a degree which might be less than pleasing to some areas of my internal organs but fret not for I’m not dead. You see? You care really. Battle wounds aside, there is more giggingingingiging to be done. Some more ace bands to battle through. Some more moshpits not to lose your clothes in. Some more of that malarkey. It’s wicked. Few words to say today. Deal.
