    Yay! I love Capsule 😀

    • Kinda hard not to, eh Chuck? Have you gotten into Perfume or Kyary Pamyu Pamyu yet?

      • Ramminchuck says:

        Kyary yes although it's not a constant love affair, but I do keep some of her stuff on my phone in case I get a hankering. Perfume a lot less so. I dig em but I can't listen to them often. Usually ends up only being mildly inebriated weekends when I'm bored.
