I can’t close my mouth. Any photo may be used as evidence. My tongue always flaps in the wind.
COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING:
THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A HOCKEY PLAYER IS… the puc bunnies (aka puc bunny) (aka Liv).
BEFORE A GAME I ALWAYS… run to the rink to avoid the fines.
WHEN I’M ON THE ROAD I ALWAYS NEED MY… overly priced katsu curry from the Leigh Delamere service station.
IF I COULD PICK A SUPERPOWER IT WOULD BE… to hit the net!
Music is a journey, and so is this playlist. Our first stop is the sweet sounds of Bonobo, who titillates the musical palate with a symphony of instruments. A Tribe Called Quest hints at a change of direction, providing both lyricism and syntax hitherto unseen. Then we diverge with Maribou State who ‘tics’ our box with some liquidity. Our final stop is signalled by MGMT who introduces us to a segment of all-round bangers. I hope you enjoy the journey.Cameron Basnett
