Passion, perseverance, and stuff

I saw the film Anvil a few nights ago. It’s a documentary about a rock band who, thirty years on from being on the verge of greatness, are living in near-obscurity and decide to give it one last push before giving up for good.

Ignite, Gratitude and Erotic Squirrels
