I heard this song a while ago, I think when a friend of mine was going through her list of 'Hottest 100' songs for 2013, but until yesterday had never actually seen the video. HOW HAD I MISSED THIS? ...Read More
Zombies. You love them, or maybe love to hate them, you've always wanted one as a pet. You've definitely planned what to do when the zombie apocalypse inevitably happens, know where all your household weapons are located and have memorised all the useful locations on the Map of the Dead...Read More
