    Growing up I always had bruises and black eyes. It was hella bad.  My father had a way of expressing himself with using his fist. No matter what I did or said, or what I didn’t do or say it seemed that I always got his fist for something or another. My father didn...

    Concrete Pool

    When I was younger I took swimming classes. You can see where this is going to. I can already hear the teeth clamping together. Well, the team was in the water and we were playing around. One of the kids said, " I bet you can't get me". So he went under the water and...

    A Few Actually

    I've had several black eyes in my life.  Some were accidents, some weren't.  And, for the record, never looked like the painted on one in the logo for this group.
