Bradley Hopkins- Staff Writer
Coming from a backwoods small town no oneâ€™s ever heard of in Appalachia, in southwestern Virginia, I first made an attempt at a massage therapy license, followed by a stint working as a lumber worker. Now in the employ of the United States Navy, I work as an Information Systems Technician (computers and communications). Itâ€™s classified. Iâ€™m an expert in tattoos and tattoo history, and a growing student of philosophy, professional wrestling, history, politics, video games, and literature in general. I live wherever the Navy tells me to.

You forgot to write that you are an expert in: colonialism, the atomic bomb, and guns and gunpowder in your profile. Other than that, it’s spot-on. Keep up the good work!
Awesome site!!! Very impressive :) Keep up the great work!!! Im psyched to know that I have been in the presence of talent at L-219 :)
Thanx folks for bringing this out——-
Keep on writing/reviewing.
Thanks for the site and your great review of Guy Sebastian’s LIKE IT LIKE THAT album. hope one of you gets to interview him soon.
Thanks for taking an interest in Rhys Lewis and promoting him with an American audience! I think his songs will resonate with many Americans during some anxious and turbulent times.
I know he connects with many people at a very personal level because he shares his vulnerability and human fragility we all have when dealing with realationships, love and rejection!
I will spread the word about your website in the U.K.!
