CAKE Not to be confused with the band out of Sacramento, California. This episode of Box of Chocolates; originally streamcast on the 23rd of July, 2017. Was all about celebrating musician birthdays that fell within the past week. CAKE And now we return you to the fictitious speech in progress. CAKE Food availability and population […]

    Another round for my dark companion The view from here is crowded now, I raise my glass My doppelgänger Smiles at me From across the room The great social issues mean less than nothing to the national pests On my TV screen I will wear only black and white and hide in the alleys […]
