Jason's bio

As an old fat I belong to a scene that I have find I have less in common with as every year passes. They get younger as I get older. I get more jaded as they wish they could be as cranky as me.

I\'ve like to go backwards through technology.

Jason's favorite bands

Late 90\'s melodic hardcore superfan. I could sit here and list every single band I like but who honestly reads those after the fifth band listed? My favorite band is Lifetime.
