  • Axetyrant

    I think that Alexi is a kick ass guitar player and an idiot all at the same time shit or get off the pot any asshole can sit and complain about life a real man seizes reality and takes advantage of his surroundings. I make my world and keep it the way I like it suicide and injuring yourself is for little pussies who just want attention, go out and beat some ass if you are frustrated then you will know what relief is, fucking the next guy right up, thats how roll !
