The Death of Osama - A Day For Celebration?
Im not an American. I feel no loyalty or affiliation to the country. I have no ill feelings towards its people but I do care how and what they think. I care about the USA’s actions outside of its boarders, I care because as one of the worlds most powerful countries these actions affect me.

They have already made some waves locally and if you have not heard their debut album “God Shuffles His Feet” you are missing out. Incase you are missing out take a listen here. The brew of rolling bass lines, skanking rhythm and occasional 8-bit sounds that...
