Call To Action: Let’s Rig the Send-Off Poll

Hi everyone.

On Saturday, Social Board sent out an email with the subject line, “SENDOFF ARTIST POLL – We want to hear your input!” It was a list of an odd assortment of genres (“Rock/Pop”? Are those really the same thing?) where you chose one to vote for and maybe possibly they might pick an artist that vaguely belongs to one of those genres. Well, I’ve had it, officially.

Kenyon Graffiti: Chalmers Edition

As I sit in the library, contemplating whether I should keep “doing my work” or go home and “clean my room for my parents”, I have decided to do neither of those things, and contribute a second volume to the Kenyon Graffiti feature here at the Thrill.
