     Damn Akira, amazing.  I was already having a great day and then, with no warning, ~45 min of awesome.  So much WIN.  Any idea of when we’ll be seeing what the T-shirt looks like?  I’ve never been much for blind faith…

    yeah, that’s what i thought!!! turns out that A-zilla is so obsessed with his mixtapes that he even put one on his album in the form of The Life Equation, clocking in at 13 odd minutes!!?

    good to see Jesus! making an appearance too, when is this gonna make it into the live sets???

     Yeah, for the past what, year and a half at least? After a certain point I stopped listening to promises of “soon” and was waiting for something a bit less vague.  This did nicely.

     OOH.

    The version on Spotify is different! Gap between end of track one and start of track two. WEIRD. x

    Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!
