SUMMER PREVIEW 2018: Might as well fiddle while the world burns…

Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Google Plus

 The hottest months of the year are back, along with many opportunities to empty your bank account for any form of sonic or entertainment Xanax to sublimate your sense of rage and doom, as well as keep your attention away from the mounting pile of socio-political horror that pours forth like lava from a raging volcano.

Anyway, whether you are sticking to the humid urban jungle for your good times or fleeing to the closest shore to get away from it all, there are tons of entertainment options to keep the summertime fun flowing for anybody of any legal age. You know, until the days start getting shorter and the militarized police start forcefully shooing people off the streets for government-mandated curfews and brainwashing.

With that, get your credit cards ready and your SPF50 out — it’s time to summer.
