For the dearly departed Nik P. Vollweiler

Today I pay tribute to an important person in my life that was tragically taken from me and also those who loved and knew him. While stationed in Japan I met Nik. We had so many things in common but the love of music was our glue. I played him HOLE and 7 Year Bitch and the Deftones and My Ruin, and he simply bought me an AFI cd. He first bought me the AFI EP called All Hallows which […]

While living in Missouri I was blessed by the halloween Gods to have met Daniel Kallman, a shiny bright pumkin in a small town I thought I would never like. He will never understand probably just how much […]
