Follow-Ups: Laying Down in All the Cardboard-Boxed Beds We Made
1. OLIVER MILLER RETURNS FROM HIDING!
To apologize in the comments section. Oliver Miller and All City will now go skipping down the street, holding hands. Ollie, you ain't so fat! The power of the Internets.
2. All City's Big Poppa been caught reading.
We called our dad last night back in Massholeachusetts, he picked up the phone, and was like, "This is Dicknose." Uh, we ain't never heard 76-year-old Poppa All City say the first part of that word before, but apparently it was his way of telling us that he's been reading our blog. Yikes! We think this means that he's a dope daddy, but this also means we're probably gonna be grounded 'til we're fitty! Seeeet.
By the way, this is what Poppa All City rocks on his feet.
3. Broad Noodles gets at us!
I would like to personally thank you for all of the kind words you said about us in your shitty band promo. Due to your generosity, and obvious eye for beauty and talent, i would like to personally invite you to our show. It's at Crash Mansion on April 28th, and don't be late !
Lord Harry Latts
Who wants to be All City's plus one?
