At first I read that as "demoning my kitchen" and generally I'd advise against installing demons in your kitchen. Although maybe if you trap demons in the tiles and the oven, they'll be forced to cook food for you. But they might be bad cooks.

Rename this show "the rap albums we need to buy asap.". There're 2 I'm already eying.
Avatar 8:29pm northguineahills:

at last year's NYE, I said, "Thank Zarathustra, it's almost 2016, it can't be worse then 2015". Whoops.... (and I had to leave Brooklyn after 16 for a shitty job in Trumpland [oh, yeah, and my spouse]). So, yeah it can get worse. But the positives are that it has energized myself to utilize my academic training to better what's possible for the future.
