At least that’s what Darcy James Argue and Isaac Butler want you to… » Read More
Eric Victorino is in high spirits when he answers the phone. Why shouldn’t he be. It’s Friday evening, the laughter and his initial distraction indicates he is amongst friends.

The boys are so identical that when they fight, their noses bleed in the exact same spot. » Read More

You can be perceived as compulsive," it began. Not flattering, I thought, but it's possible. "You are consistent; you enjoy familiar routines. You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of self-expression." Typical observations for an astrologer, but these didn't come from a person.
