Thumbs-up to the Hot Attacks. I saw them perform the other night at Steve-a-renos. Wow! What amazing talent we have right here in Victoria. You owe it to yourself to see a truly fantastic live show.
Thumbs-down to the people who leave dirty diapers in parking lots instead of disposing of them in a trash can. That is just nasty!
