I’ll let the bourbon sort it out.
  1:41pm Jeffrey from west Florida:

I met Rex Todd and the crew at a crazy event in Bushwick. A night dedicated to the Bo Diddley beat
Copped a “my shelter is fur lined” sticker off him and lost it. When I asked him for another I kinda lied when I said I needed another because I traded the one he gave me for oral gratification from a hep chick in the men’s room. Not missing a second and dead pan he said “yeah you’ll find you get that a lot”
And I thought this is the coolest daddy in our solar system. Lived in Tallahassee. Saw Bo Open for more bands than I can remember. Saw him and his kids open for D.O.A.
That’s some floridA Florida fucking shit
