The deer on the left represents me locked in battle with the deer on the right, while that deer represents 2016.

Some great things about 2016

So 2016 hasn’t been great huh? That’s the meme. That it’s been a shit year. Smacking us all right in the gooch. Terrorism, celebrity deaths, poverty, Trump, we’ve had a lot. So I thought in honour of it being such a shitter let’s take a look at some good things.

Cosentino is an Australian illusionist and escapologist. He’s a multi-talented guy. One of those people that you suspect might be better than you at everything.

Support the Cancer Society and maybe Matthew Hooton dies

I pretty much disagree with the man on every political level imaginable, but he is also a friend. He’s planning on running in the London Marathon and raising money for the Cancer Society.
