What’s up Peekskill? We gots us a new Prez

A whole bunch of interesting things here, P-Rockers. If you can’t help The Jerk figure out why that sniper hates those cans so much on Tin Can day, you can wait a day and usher in POTUS #45. Yes he IS your president (like it or not). If that doesn’t do it for you, then you can appreciate a squirrel, or answer your cat’s questions. Yes, these are the days! Seriously, what is happening to our country when we appreciate a questionably intelligent rodent that gets run over by cars and loses its nuts? When you’re done with all that, get your butt downtown and Rock out.

Thursday, Jan. 19 – Happy Tin Can Day!
