Next up we’ve got K-Pop legend, Psy (who brought you Gangnam Style), who has teamed up with Suga from BTS to give us the very catchy “That That”:

And Justin Bieber has dropped his latest track, “Honest”, featuring Don Toliver:

May work on this later tonight…been going to an amusement park with kids…good selections so far


Have fun at the amusement park :sunglasses:

With current work being chaotic and kids closing out school year, we took a few days to go to Kings Island n Great Wolf lodge.

Did check the site several times today but we had fun.

I was good til I hurt my ankle again on a dip into the walkway. At the end of the day, ankle was hurting but kept going as son was happy riding all major rides ( rides with loops, or fast)

Lol feet are tender and I have a little sunburn.


Seems those amusement parks are dangerous for adults :smiley:
Wish you fast recovery

Some pretty good tracks and some nasty outfits so far!
