Close Encounters of the Slurred Kind


We are the pioneers of a dimension known only as the "Anti-Matter Minute"; in layman's terms, the minutes of the day that don't matter.

Step into the pulpit of the preposterous, the newsroom of the nonsensical, your weekly dose of the wacky, weird, & wtf.

Welcome to Close Encounters of the Slurred Kind.
