Maple New York Sour

For my first year after college, I worked at a cozy college bar in Norman, Oklahoma. The inside featured wood paneling, brass accents on the bar and over 32 beers on tap.

A Moment of Silence – Because I Will Never Forget

I added this song as my phones ringtone when it first was released because I LOVED it. Now this tribute video adds the visuals to help bring forth the emotions you feel when you listen to it. I included Disturbed’s own music video below too. To all who lost their lives that day and to…
