Reasons To Be Missed: A Fan Remembers Chester Bennington

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 19:59:41 +0000

When I got news that Chester Bennington was dead, the last thing I had tweeted was a semi-serious theory that Linkin Park's song "Papercut" was about the Panopticon.

Taylor Swift and I have many things in common, but one of the quirkier items in the shared area of our Venn diagram is this: I love the Darkness and she loves the Darkness. Eerie? I guess, kinda, but like I said, for all practical purposes, we are basically the same person. THAT SAID: I…

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 15:31:53 +0000
