[i] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership. Stay tuned for further developments.
[ii] We hope to promote the music of Pink Floyd and of the group’s individual members after Supertramp who is up next after we finish the music of Roxy Music and its members.
[iii] The Taliban is a prime example as to WHY we built the neutron bomb. We need to drop it every where the frigging Taliban is, radiating everything with a massive burst that will diminish after a week or two. Kill them all. Then we can declare peace and leave civilized Afghanistan.
