Round 2: Charlie's New against My Old.
Being Old is decieving, because you can't play any of the bands you instantaneously fell in love with this year, so you're tricked into thinking you have nothing to choose from. And you beat around the bush not bringing up great artists you hope will fly uner the radar till next week.
Nothing to choose from?! I made a point of throwing down the best of the best. I play to win. No mercy!
This week we had a completely unbias third party moderator: my boyfriend Ty! Hahaha. It was his birthday, and we need someone to draw the line in the sand somewhere. He was also our moral code, and we almost threw him out the window.
