That's bad.
Very bad.
What'll happen when we croak
and gotta wanna stand B4 Jesus?
Did God Almighty say we,
as a wee, wee earthling
so fulla sin,
could do such a horrendous act?
How mucha wanna betcha
you're from the gnarly state of CA
where they dont believe in God?
too hardcore, huh??
Silly earthling...
Hellfire's moe hardcore.
A gobba white-trash-psuedonyms.
Lemme wanna lead you outta the doldrums...

Yay! yoo RITE!! Gotta gobba lotta shrewd, surreal, subtle, sardonic satires, psychotically savvy, sassy elixers & electronic elegance on our YOUTHwitheTRUTH blogz. N'joym, earthling.

So, why-O-why should U love our fuse-blowin, hot-shot, HOLEsumm-cage-match? Our abundant productivity coupled withe copious depth of the extraordinary? Our proFUSE NRGod which leeeds to explosive fairy-tales in the 'one-stop-shop' symphony? Our bombastic tenaCITY on a Hill which'll plant the Seeds 4U2 grow-up to great heights? Follow us on the journey Home...

CAUTION: our 22ish, wildchild, accurately-atrocious, off-the-reservation, metal-breadKrumm-blogazzzms R so boring, they're such an intimate wealth of bottomless residue; however, my just and groovy earthling, who else hast actually SEEN the Great Beyond in person & lived to tella youse bout the bionic, bloated, brevity-like-earth we're living on, almost salivating4salvation?? So, gain altitude, never attitude: death has no favorites.

If the Great Beyond's an ultra-great-reward, and not everyone enters, why is it an excruciating deluge of epic caliber where the quality's a limitless bulldozer pushin-your-power-cord with eternal goodies?? The Prize-a+-TheEnd-of-Reality just gives U.S. moe-curley graphiXX which few R asking 4 anymoe. They're too concerned withe grotesque sanity of the ambivilant PISSANTS! which crawl like lemmings to their doom!

THANK GAWWWD!!! the Don has the ebullient BAWLS!!! to say the Manifest Destiny!!! To lead us forward to the White House Upstairs with his SQUARES!!!

So, break-free, earthling: be like a contraversial outgrowth of incredibly-intoxicating-effusiveness in your zeitgeist. Wanna join this useFULL idiot Upstairs 4 the most zany, kooky, handcrafted antidotes? Extremely exquisite & explicit endorphins in abundance? Puh-lenty of pulverizingly-tantalizing ex-psycotics with esoteric tics? i2i-kick-ass-ultra-maximum-rocket-fuel-party-hardy at my pad ya ever encountered without d'New Joisey accent 4 an eternal slew of precarious, magnanimous and primeval absurdities indelibly etched in the Granite Corridoors of our eternity with a total-barrage-of-melt-in-thy-mouth infinite indulgence ...???
