@jmessersmith what are you selling!? @Jen_Boyles and yet hard to imagine anyone doing better than Bruno did. @Jen_Boyles when i recorded at Paisley splitting days with Prince he looked better at 9:00 AM after recording all night by himself @Jen_Boyles Bruno pointed up (again) how perfectly put together Prince ALWAYS WAS.Chance is real. @jmessersmith prince would never wear such ill fitting trousers.Prince tribute... sadly the proof that he is gone gone gone. Crying again.
@dark_shark thank you for this reminder of how cool one can be!OMG: Stephen Miller promoting voter fraud. Latest WH screamer.... perfect mouthpiece for his loudmouth boss. Good day sir.Stephen Miller presents like Hitler Youth.

@Busdriverr a wall that also did not work.I'm sorry but Nick Jonas is not hockey music. Not even in the same vicinity. Sorry Nick. Hockey music very specific genre.It's real. If you support @realDonaldTrump you endorse a gratuitous, grotesque, unforgettable national act of ethnic and religious bigotry.
