"I don't really struggle with impatience
I aint' even payin' enough attention for gettin' upset

You gotta say the whole thing. Yes, every time...

I have never been to New Jersey.  My sister was born there, and my other sister lived there for a while, but I've never been.  Still, as a hip hopper I recognize the massive contributions New Jersey has made to the culture.  Some you know:  RedmanLords of the UndergroundPoor Righteous TeachersLauryn Hill an'em.  

Thanks to the internet, I have become aware of tons more incredible musicians from the Garden State that are not yet household names: Venomous2000, King Ra, Conscious Operations, and more...

Now I can add The Band Called FUSE to the list.

Don't Become The Thing You Hate The Most.

I've known Stranger Comics for dark, weird, and well-made comics in the Niobe-verse, but I've not seen them go for the humor market.  They're swinging for the fences with what looks like a dark, weird, and well-made holiday comedy Ruining Christmas.
