welcome to 2021 - same shit different year - a year in which SURVIVAL will prevail for most - as the full health and economic impact of COVID takes its toll but - like always - we will survive despite the challenges that lie ahead- albeit with clever life/survival hacks that many people have already mastered - ways to spend less money and not waste and innovative ways to earn money - If you -dear FMU listener - have SURVIVAL life hack that you have mastered -please share here in the comments -----PS shout out to Scott Williams

Mask hack: It doesn't look flattering but SEAL that shit SHUT with medical tape attaching the top edge of the mask to your nose and face so that the air you're breathing is truly being filtered, not slipping through the gap! If you have to go indoors somewhere outside of your home, esp. a crowded store, this might help keep the "UK variant" out....
  7:06pm ami ad:

Haha Ike, that works. 5. Cannabis.

Avatar 7:57pm ledzeppelinsucks:

I remember the Stargate at Factoria 7 11 could get credits by ramming a spraw into the quarter slot and wiggling it. There were church ladies outside picketing Penthouse and other suburban fascists were working for Nancy Reagan. The rest were playing records backwards, so they left video games alone.

Hot show, Billy. Thanks for spinning.
