Kurt Cobain ascended the golden ladder, a ladder most will never glimpse.
He he climbed to the very top...and saw a curtain, behind which he always thought would be his salvation.
He reached over the ladder and peaked behind...
And for whatever reason...
After years of imaging the solace he might find....

But to see "The Killing" take 2 in the back of the head twice and get left for dead...then to come back to life again and again...this should tell the naysayers something.
As we stand on the precipice of it's return, I wanted to write a few words to celebrate it.
Take a moment won't you...
Prepare to Laugh...and maybe cry. Chris Lilly doesn't play around. He pushes the boundaries, and as a one man army...he succeeds.
