Singles day, a consumerism day but also a self-acceptance day

Outsider Music, the key of Z and the philosophy of the World
Outsider Music It may have all started with a prophecy read on Austin Wiggin Jr.’s hand. First, he’ll marry a blonde woman and have two sons after the death of his mother; then, he will have daughters who will become international music stars. The prophecy was frighteningly turning real when the first two predictions […]
