Pins and Needles

By Rob

pins and needlesIf you are like me, then you don’t work, battle crippling depression, or stumble through life on quickly fading good looks. If you are not like me, then you probably budget your time through responsibilities and planned recreations. Like this bloke here, frozen in time by his fascination of 80’s analog technology. Somehow I was coerced into going to Silverlake for the second time in a year. Oh, Pins and Needles is a really rad place to play pinball.
