|message to the world:||*
DON'T BE OBVIOUS. keep it on the lay-low.
* DO NOT USE THE SLANG OF ANOTHER CULTURE. ie americans do not say "shite" or "shag" and english do not say "y'all". the only word that should cross over is "reckon". i reckon if my great-grandmother can say reckon, so can damon albarn.
