Never Sleep


“I’m a programmer,” says Exciteableboy, he of the above knuckle tattoos, “it’s what I am.” Oh yeah? Well, I LOVE PIES, but you don’t see me bragging about it.

Body Count


“Yeah,” says Seth, “I’m that guy.” When reached for comment, Ice-T stared at the floor silently for over a minute before standing, walking slowly over to the nearest wall and delivering a devastating left cross right through the plaster.

My Mouth’s Shooting Blanks


And to close out this fine Monday, here we have Sam showing off his chestpiece, which comprises Bayside lyrics, American Steel‘s eighth note and a handsome set of wings to round it all out, done by Vinz Nadeau at Quebec City’s Anim Ink. Take care, ModBloggers, and we’ll see you tomorrow.
